Hidden views

I've been a bad blogger and not blogged much over the past few week and here is the reason, my new exhibitions Hidden Views. The exhibition starts on Saturday 30th April at the Coffee Clique in Getliffe's Yard in Leek. I've not blogged much because most of my free time has been taken up with shoots for the exhibition and sorting out the advertising and getting the pictures framed, work that is still on going!!!! Because of that I not only had no time to blog but also no fresh pictures to post as all my photos were of subjects for the exhibition. So what is it all about, Hidden Views is about the need to see places you are not normally allowed to see, the idea arrived in the second week in March and at first I nearly did not use it as the time was so short. Not only was there the matter of getting 30+ good images (hard enough on its own) but these had to be taken in places you would not normally get to or even see.

So an hour later and lots of processing and here it is. Now back to sorting images for the exhibition.

Pick me up

Just sorting photos for the exhibition and came across this shot taken last year at a steam fair, so I thought I would pop it on here.

Been a bit busy of late and let my blogging slip a bit, so a bit of an update for you. Ziggy fine, getting bigger by the day and yesterday sat for his second official portrait. He has also made it down the pub twice this weekend and visited both our mums on Sunday, he has had quite a busy weekend. The business is going to plan with an exhibition in the final stages of preparation, just the advertising to write and the final prints to be selected. More news on that later this week. I have also secured a stand at a local craft fair in May, so for the first time I will have 2 events running at the same time, luckily I don't need to be at both at the same time. I have also added new pages to my web site Brett , to advertise my wedding photography and portrait work. As you can see between Ziggy and work there is very little me time at the moment, the only problem with this is that time is flying by so fast, I've already missed winter and if I don't stop and look aro
