A Splash of Flash

Last Sunday I met up with Jackie, a fellow Photographer, at her home in Windsor. We had arranged to do some experimentation with off-camera flash for a couple of hours. As luck would have it, the sun came out, who would have thought such a thing could happen on a July weekend in England eh? Problem was that it was really strong and the poor little EX580's had to really work hard.

Sophie (above) and Rebecca kindly offered to be our models for the day, and what wonderful models they were.

One of the best things about being a photographer is meeting new and interesting people. I could have talked for hours! Both Sophie and Rebecca were a real pleasure to spend an afternoon with.

Being a model is more than just looking pretty, it is really hard work and, at times, a little boring, but they were very patient and stuck with us for the duration. I think the results were worth it, hope you agree!

More soon... take care!

Engagement: Lesley and Alexander

Had so much fun with Lesley and Alexander on their Engagement shoot. Whilst the kids, under the (mostly) watchful eye of their grandmother, practiced their putting skills we made the most of the wonderful surroundings on a very beautiful day.

I really enjoy the time we spend on an Engagement shoot. It is a great way to get to know each other before the big day.

Here are a few of my favourites from the afternoon...
