Spotlight head shots

I seem to be doing more and more actors headshots recently. The following shots, for spotlight, and are from a shoot I did with Anita Booth while she was in Bristol with Mamma Mia at the Bristol Hippodrome. She is shortly off round Europe and Asia with the musical.

Family portrait shoot

Here are a few of the many family photographs taken with Zoe and Stuart and their daughter Charlotte and new baby Daisy. With such a young baby the focus is really on how new and small she is. Anyway here are the shots:

Update and training....

I seem to be rushing from one thing to the next, so haven't updated my blog for a while.

Since retuning from the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) Convention in London in January where I delivered a 2 hour Masterclass I have been inundated with calls about photographic training. I was so touched to see so many people at my Masterclass, 156 people in total were counted coming into the room! I also wanted to say a big thank you to my friend (and fellow photographer) Suzanne Fossey who supported my pre-talk nerves and after talk glass of wine.

The convention was brilliant. A time to hear some of the worlds top photographers speak and to catch up on what's going on in the industry. I met some wonderful people there and saw some innovative new products in the trade show (more on this soon).

A quick spot of mentoring on the Saturday morning meant that I was able to speak with some of the delegates personally and helping on the Albums Australia stand I got to see some exciting new products and packaging that I will be offering to my wedding and portrait clients very soon.

As well as feeding me creatively, I also picked up quite a few delegates for the photographic training courses I am running here in Bristol and with Dee Harris in High Wycombe.

I have been doing a few shoots, mainly family and baby shoots, I will post new images soon. Also I have got some great shots from the last training course that I ran with Dee at her studio at the start of February. We had a really good group attend the 2 day training course in wedding photography. Delegates flew in from as far as Cork in Ireland and Edinburgh. Below are a selection of images I shot with our models when I delivered the training course:

More soon.... Morag
