Over the last few months, I have had the privilege of photographing some stunning looking children – and here are some examples of that.

Starting from the top, this sequence of photos features Ewan (5), Luke (3) and Elodie (2). I just love expressive kids. When you put the shots together, you get a great result. Next up is a string portrait of Nikolay (6). He was a very enthusiastic little boy, but this shot shows another side of him. The final shot features sisters Imogen (9) and Elsie (7). Over the last year I have been experimenting with a vintage ‘wet plate’ look, and the girls were just perfect for this style. I absolutely love this – full of drama!

This morning I woke up to some great news that an image from my ‘Black on White’ collection got third place at the WPPI Awards in the USA.
 
WPPI is one of the world’s biggest photographic competitions. Its often referred to as ‘the Oscars’ for professional wedding and portrait photographers. Due to its prestige, all the major studios from around the world enter this competition. To get a placing is a major achievement.
 
Its nice to know that a small studio based in a sleepy village can compete with the big boys!
 
You can see the full ‘Black on White’ collection at www.blackonwhite.photo. The website contains tasteful fine art nude imagery.

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!
