• Pure Drama

    I wasn’t able to get more than about half a dozen shots of each of two costume/make-up setups, as the shoot was organised at my photographic society and there were about fifteen other camera toters waiting in line. But Amy was the soul of patience and I eventually got to the front of the queue. I have picked out my three favourites to show here.

You can learn lots of stuff here. Why not have a look at the updated range of papers. I love the Baryta papers and you can buy a test pack of the newly enhanced range. If you prefer the Smooth Fine Art Range, look here…or the textured fine art…

    Gave myself a couple of hours off today and decided to have a look through my catalogue of images from recent shoots to find something that I could edit dramatically, so the lovely Samantha acquired a pair of flashing green eyes. It was fab to see her and her family, in November, and hope she doesn’t mind me taking liberties! Samantha – armed and dangerous Let it rain …one for Debbie Sutherland who always looks fabulous… Leah This is the first time I photographed Leah…what a beautiful girl!
