Jake Gyllenhaal - Demolition

Just watched the trailer for the new Jake Gyllenhaal,  they used some of my images to decorate his house,  what a lovely surprise to see 2 of them in the trailer.

Will have to wait till next year to get the popcorn out and enjoy seeing my work 20 feet tall.

Be well and enjoy.

Workshops 2015

I am running a couple of workshops again this year when my Dahlias are in bloom, late August early September. If you are interested please email me for final dates. Till then here are a few images from last years workshops. All images are copyright of their respective owners.

The workshop starts at 10 and aims to finish by 4 but if we run late then so be it. We start with me showing you my normal setup and some of the images created using it. I show some prints  on different types of papers which you can print on at the end of the workshop ensuring that you leave with some finished work. We then discuss what you are expecting from the workshop and any technical questions you may have before I get you taking photos. If flowers aren't your thing I have a very large selection of sea shells and skulls, which you are more than welcome to use. We will look at using daylight (both indoor and outdoor) and flash. To end the workshop we spend about an hour looking at your images on the computer and we select 2 of your images to finish off in Lightroom and then we print these out on my large format printer. The 2 A3 prints are included in the workshop fee of £100, which also covers all flowers, drinks and lunch.

Here are a few images from the day, Sarah brought some dried flowers/fruit/veg to use, to great effect.

The workshops is designed for 3 people but if you want to come in a larger group then let me know and I will see what I can do.

Here we are shooting in direct sunlight.

Back to Ikea

Very happy to return to Ikea recently to see 2 of my B&W images for sale, no it didn't come as a surprise I knew they were there, just nice to see them for real. Not sure what the other shoppers thought of the guy having his pic taken while holding onto some art, but do I care I had my beautiful daughter there with me.

For those who have seen the previous entry look how my baby has grown.

Enjoy and be well
