Its not all hard work

Meet Bella and Jade, two of the reasons I love my job, it has been nearly a year since I went full time and in that time I have had the pleasure of photographing loads of new subjects. It has not been all hard work but photographing semi naked young ladies was one of the most stressful moments of the year, until I started then it was just like any other shoot. In fact as I was working professional models it was one of the best shoots I did. My latest shoot was with Bella and a few other dogs, a real recipe for disaster, but as it turned. out it was great fun and quite painless

A busy and cold few days with lots of time spent out doors taking pictures. Thursday night and Friday morning saw me on the Roaches taking pictures for my exhibition in May, Saturday evening found me on the side of Rutland water taking yet more shots for the exhibition. In all I have taken 700 shots in 4 days, last Jan I took 488 in the whole month!

The real reason I was down in Rutland was to meet up with some old friends for the weekend, and what a great week end it was loads of laughs and loads of great food. All in all a fantastic few days I can not wait till next time.

Sitting here trying to work and keep getting distracted, the picture below started out as an attempt to delete some photos, which I managed to do, but then I started to play with some of the images and ended up with this. Bang goes 1/2 an hour!

I'm a believer

I'm getting a bit depressed and the latest fad on Facebook is the cause. It's only a little thing but people have started to post the tune that was number one when they were born, which, in it's self, is not that bad, the bad bit is that I can remember most of them coming out! And some of them only seem like yesterday. Karma Chameleon was the last one posted, I'm sure that was only a few years ago. Doesn't time fly.

So to join in the fun I thought I would post mine

I'm A Believer - The Monkees

And to save you looking it up 1967.

On a different note, I've been asked by a couple of people if I will be running an introduction to photography course again this year, the answer depend on the amount of interest there is, so if this might appeals to you or someone you known could you let me known. I'm looking to focus at getting the best from any camera and exploring different styles of photography, trying to build a foundation to then let you carry on enjoying photography.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. Hope the hangovers are not too bad.

To start the year I've a new project, and it's an other daily photo blog, Buxton Daily Photo, a photo a day taken in and around Buxton and the Derbyshire Peak District. Pop over and check out the first picture.

Yes I know it's another blog, as if 3 was not enough for one person, but given the success the others have had and what I have gotten from running them it seems to me to be a good idea. So I hope you all have a great new year and that 2012 brings you all you wish for.
