Tea with Alice…. flash back to July 2016

Recently I was asked to contribute some images to a charity fundraiser flyer and found myself going through some I took in my early days of photography, when it really was just a hobby hobby, before I signed up to a photography degree and joined a photography club etc.

It was going through these images when I realised I hadn’t posted any of the themed photo shoot images I took with Pinup Doll Alice Oxley back in July 2016.  I had posted a blog with the portrait shots of Alice but not the more themed ones.

So, a year on, I thought now was the time to put some of these images up for you to see. The theme was a 50s style tea party and I had big plans for the shoot but when the day came it was windy and I had to abandon some of the ideas I had.  This taught me that you should ‘always’ have a plan B and expect to re-assess your plans on the day and think on the hoof.  Also not to plan anything too elaborate, keep things simple where you can if you are working solo.

That said it was a brilliant shoot, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and think it was from that moment on that I realised that this was THE hobby for me.  Here are some of the images from the shoot:

Hope you enjoy this post and have a great weekend!


Party rings…

I recently watched a YouTube video about photography practice and that inspiration for taking photographs is all around us everyday, we just need to look and get creative.

So I treated myself to a pack of party rings (79p), one of my favourite biscuits and colourful which is important in photography (unless you take B&W, although I’m sure colour still plays it’s part there too!).

And so to the results…

I hope this gives you the inspiration to go out and try your photography out on everyday accessible things…

…. and yes I ate all the biscuits at the end of the session as a well earned treat. lol  Hope you are all having a great weekend.
