Last Saturday was a balmy warm day at Hove beach when I met up with the Bissell family for a photo shoot. The boys were really good fun and put up with me taking pictures of them for much longer thank they should have! Thanks so much to Lelia and Steve who were wonderful to work with. I love the results!
I am very pleased to announce that my portrait of 'Rueben' received an Honorable Mention in the 13th Annual Lucie Awards, presented at Carnegie Hall New York 27th October 2015. I entered his photograph i to the People/Children section of the competition that is hailed as the Oscar night of the Photography Industry.
This is the first year I have entered this competition and the photograph of Rueben was one taken from his school portrait gallery. It wasn't taken with the possibility of entering competitions in mind so I am very pleased with this positive feedback. Many thanks to Rueben's parents for allowing me too use this image in the competition, it is very much appreciated.
Out today is the latest Summer edition of ABC magazine with my little cover star photograph of India from Hove on the front page.
There is an article to accompany it inside on pages 100-101 titled 'Getting the Best Photographs of Children' where I have offered my 10 best tips to help parents make the most of that brief second where your child actually looks up at your camera and smiles.
I hope they are of some use :)
Ive just updated my website with some lovely images I have taken for ABC magazine (the Summer issue out on 1st July 2015) and I am very excited to announce that one of them has been chosen as the front cover for the Hampshire wide edition.
The photograph chosen is one of a little girl eating an ice cream, the image need to be 'as Summery as possible' when in fact it was blowing a gale and freezing cold on Hove seafront! It was a lot of fun all the same and everyone ended up with Ice cream.
Look out for my editorial piece inside the magazine on 'How to get the best photographs of children'I have tried to give some top tips whilst not giving away all of my secrets ;)
