December

My last post on here was in October and since then the weeks have flown by. I've been busy working full time as a retoucher so I haven't really had much time to do a lot of photography. I've taken my camera about a few places with me as well as starting to photograph myself a bit more too. Here are a few photographs from the last couple of months that show what I've been doing:

Self Portraits:

A couple a bit more fun playing around in my new onesie!


A beautiful November wedding I photographed:

Out for the day on a trip up Ely Cathedral, whilst teaching college students:

Time spent with friends:

Enjoying the countryside I live in:


I will try to update again sooner as well as posting more photos from the wedding and some new self portraits =)

Update

Recently I've been taking some time out from my photography as I've been working full time as a retoucher for a photography company, as well as trying to rest.
The months are flying by so quickly at the moment and I forget that I should update this sooner!

Although I haven't been doing as much photography lately, there are still a few things that have been happening:

A couple of my photos were published in High Profile magazine, as part of a feature on designer Omar Mansoor -

I've started trying to work on some self portraits(!). Here is the first one -

I had my graduation ceremony and am officially a Graduate now! -



And of course I'm still taking photos of my lovely pet hamster Honey -


Alongside my work I will be busy over the next couple of months with some client shoots and photographing a November Wedding.
I will try to update my websites a bit more regularly =)

Update

Recently I've been taking some time out away from my online profiles, so I apologise that this blog post is long overdue.
After finishing uni I decided that I needed a break to enjoy the summer, spend time with my family & working out where I want to go from here.

I finished uni with an Upper Second Class Bachelor of the Arts Degree with Honours. After three years of hard work I am proud to say that and the fact I managed to stick with it.
My course was definitely hard work and a struggle at times, but I totally believe I'm better off with a degree as it gives me a lot more career choices.

The past month or so has gone so quickly and to be honest I'm no closer to a decision about my photography & future career, so for now I'm going to say that I'm continuing to be a bit absent, but will definitely be working on something soon.

I have set up a Tumblr blog that I will be posting more personal stuff on which will probably be more regular than this blog.

I also recently got a lovely little hamster called Honey. Her cage is on my desk next to my Mac & she keeps me company whilst I work -




Also Sandra Reynolds Agency have launched their new website which features my photographs on the main page -

Starchild

A bit of a different blog post from me, featuring a different photographer and myself in front of the camera...

This series 'Starchild' is by another student on my course - Mate Dobray. A great body of work, this is a perfect example of the high standard of photography graduates now.

In these first two images I am the model, it was a different experience for me being the subject instead of photographer but I enjoyed it!

Theatre De La Mode

Here are the final photos from my 'Theatre de la Mode' Editorial, part of my Sur Les Pointes project.

This shoot was a great, it was a challenge shooting in such a different location but a great experience. We were able to use the whole theatre so decided to do a mix of on stage & back stage, which worked well to contrast the styling.

Cut Grass Exhibition - The Old Truman Brewery, London

Our second degree show exhibition is currently taking place at The Old Truman Brewery, London, part of the Free Range exhibitions.

The private view was Thursday evening and was a great success with lots of people turning up. It was such a brilliant night, the whole show had a great atmosphere and I really appreciate all the lovely comments and people coming to see my work.

The exhibition runs until Monday at 4pm, more info can be found here, it's definitely worth a visit if you're in London.
Also photos of my work at the Cambridge exhibition can be seen on my previous post here.

Amongst The Fog

Here are the final photos from my 'Amongst The Fog' editorial, part of my Sur Les Pointes project.

This shoot was quite different for me as I haven't used a fog machine before, as well as using stronger lighting than I usually do. I'm pleased with the results of both & will be experimenting more in the future!
