About Me

My photo
This blog is a window into my creative business and lifestyle. I love the outdoors and going on adventures. Photography and videography are a way of life and this allows me to capture the people and adventures along the way. I also enjoy any form of creativity and I am always keen to try new things.

I captured this image a few weeks ago when I was working at the Bushcraft Show. The magazine ran a reader's competition to be on the front cover of the July/August issue and I had the pleasure of capturing the cover shot of the father and son who won it. Even though the sun was out (but not for long!) I used a fill flash to avoid shadow across their faces and left some lush green dead space above them for the magazine masthead. The magazine is in the shops today.

I am working on a project with a client in Alnwick, Northumberland. Being so close to the coast and having not visited the East coast of England for a long while I decided to visit Alnmouth. The weather has been beautiful lately and it was a nice evening. I shot a few snaps and headed back to the hotel ready to start work tomorrow. I plan on visiting the Angel of the North on the way back home, I am intrigued to see how big it is up close.

Over the last 2 weeks we have made great progress in organising and planning the trip to Japan. We now have our exchange orders for the train passes when we arrive. This is a very exciting prospect as it has been a long term dream to travel on the ultra modern, efficient and amazingly fast bullet trains of Japan & experience travelling at 200mph as the landscapes pass by.

The young blue tit babies have been chirping away for a while now whilst the parents frantically work to feed them on demand. The old bird box is situated just outside the front door and this morning we watched a couple of chicks leave the nest for the first time. Let's wish them a safe start to which is no doubt the most dangerous and vulnerable time of there lives.
