Recently I welcomed siblings Molly and George to the studio. Despite their young age (10 & 7) they are established and experienced models. They have worked for some big names – including Harrods and Burberry’s.

Their agent wanted to update their headshots and the brief from them (and their mum!) was to keep it nice and simple. Because they are so used to doing shoots, they were an absolute breeze to photograph!

We’re back in the studio after the Christmas break and the first sessions I did were for some Choreographers.

Douglas, Tamsin and Vikki are all highly respected choreographers. None of them liked having their photographs taken (a bit like us photographers!), but as always, they were very easy to work with, and I got some great shots.

I did a lovely shoot with Bethany (7) and Georgia (5) the other day. I first photographed Bethany when she was around 6 months old, so it was great to see her again. We did quite a few setups – but the last setup we did is one of my favourites. Dark and dramatic – just the way I like it!

Happy new year to everyone!

Firstly, apologies for the lack of postings recently, the last few months have been extremely busy – indeed, its been the busiest period the business has had in its 13 year history! Thank you to everyone who has visited the studio, I hope you all enjoyed your shoots.

With regards to availability, we still have some spaces for weekday shoots during January and February, but we still have a very high demand for Saturday shoots. Our next available Saturday slots are in March. Slots during the half term week are almost full too, so if you are looking to have a portrait shoot contact us now.

Shown below are a selection of some of the images we created over the last couple of months.

Last week I attended the Master Photography Awards, hosted by the Master Photographers Association (MPA). Its one of the UK’s biggest award ceremonies for professional portrait and wedding photographers.

At the ceremony I was thrilled to receive a major award – namely the Best Fellowship Award for my panel; ‘Black on White’ which was my Fellowship submission to the MPA. The Fellowship is the highest accolade for quality and excellence a photographic trade body can bestow upon its members. In addition to that, I received an Award of Excellence for two images submitted in the Under 5’s and Creative Portraiture categories.

So all in all, I had a fantastic night!

I also learnt that F2 Cameracraft magazine have done a feature on the ‘Black on White’ collection. I also got the front cover too! F2 Cameracraft is available from all good newsagents.

You can see the full collection (and buy prints) at www.blackonwhite.photo. The site contains tasteful fine art nude imagery.
