A white sheet and an orange t-shirt

A few weeks back I posted some shots of my young nephews shot simply in the rear yard with a white sheet background and natural light.

Today's post is another from that series, featuring a young friend of my lads who popped by just at the right time!

The Ian McMillan Orchestra at Litfest09

I had been intending to present some daily pictures from this year's litfest events but an unexpected illness in the family instead kept me largely away. But here anyway is a snap taken during rehearsals of the Ian McMillan Orchestra event from last Saturday held at The Dukes.

New Wedding albums

I've created a few sample storybook wedding albums recently with a simple, one picture per page design to offer clients choice and as an alternative to my traditional style album.
Let's contrast and compare...

The 'Traditional' style album.
A 40 page (11" x 9") album which holds up to 40 7" x 5" prints, loosely inserted into the album and held in place by traditional non-permanent mounting corners. Prints have a thin white border on black pages, and can be removed for framing etc. Window on front to hold cover image.

The 'Storybook' style album.

A 44 page (7" x 7") professionally printed book which holds 40 images printed onto the book pages. Printed cover front and back. Suitable also as a parent album. Additional copies can be purchased directly from the printers. To preview some samples click on the boxes below.

Meet the family!

Although it doesn't seem it, it's actually 2 years since I photographed Andrew and Lesley's wedding, and recently they called me up to say they now had a one year old - Iona - and could I take some shots of the 3 of them together. Absolutely! And here's a couple of faves from last weekend's shoot. And thanks to Mrs Beanphoto for the editing on these! Girl done good!

RIP Irving Penn

I just heard the sad news that the photographer Irving Penn died this week, aged 92. Irving Penn was inspirational to me as a young student and to this day I adore his close-up portrait work. RIP.

Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my little blog's 3rd birthday, my how time flies, look how much it has grown! They grow up so fast don't you think? It only seems like yesterday it was but a twinkle in my eye. It'll soon be throwing strops and having tantrums, and before too long it'll be off to make it's own way in the world (wide web).

Catherine & Paul's Mitton Hall Wedding

Catherine & Paul's wedding at Mitton Hall was a great day. The love these two displayed for each other was clear throughout the day. Mitton Hall is a great venue, and whoever put in that order for a bit of nice weather did a fine job! What glorious sunshine! Here's a few of my favourites from the day...
