Both the red deer and the fallow deer’s antlers are nearly full grown now but they are still covered in that lovely soft velvet that provides blood and nutrients to the growing bone. It’s a great time to get out early and photograph them especially around dawn when the light is beautiful.
Father’s day is just over a week away. Have you thought what to by him?
How about a family photo shoot?
It will be a fun day out for everybody and you will get some great photos to frame and keep. It can be something that makes you laugh or a photo of his lovely children or a simple family group photo. I can supply a gift card to be used when you wish. Here’s a few examples of photos I’ve done in the past to give you some ideas. If you are interested then give a call on 07920 887909
Whenever I get good light and calm conditions I try to get down to Pennington Marshes, Lymington which is here in the New Forest National Park. Although I have always been interested in birds, for me, it’s more about the photography rather than ticking a bird list. Having said that some of the rarer birds create more captivating images. Technique is very important and I continue to experiment there but it’s all about the light and learning about your subject. Hope you like the photos.
If you would like to find out a bit more I do offer personal tuition or small workshops or even simple guide services.
I’ve been using the rainy weather to put together a long overdue flip book from our trip to Indonesia last November. I have so many lovely photos that this one just covers the first 2 weeks which includes our week at Scuba Junkies Komodo and our second week on Flores where we stayed mostly at Labuan Bajo. If you ever think you might like to go Joanne and I would thoroughly recommend you do and we are planning to back in the not too distant future. The coral reefs are stunning, the Giant Manta are amazing, there are so many turtles and the people are very friendly.
When the weather is calm and you know there will be good light then Pennington Marshes is a great place to go this time of year. The terns are back and I love photographing them when they are fishing. Either as they dive or when they hover. This morning I was lucky enough to find a pair of Little Terns bonding through feeding. Very sweet.
3 days after her UKBFF South Coast Championship 3rd place and qualification for the National Championships Charlene Joy came to my studio for a shoot. A great chance to play with lighting and some great results.
