52 Weeks – A mammoth catch up and bluebells
So the last two weeks have been utterly nuts. I’ve been helping with a few extra weddings in April, and my A Level students sat their Unit 2 exams which rather kept me out of trouble. I have had time to get out and photograph, though… Or rather, I’ve been forced to as part of the bookings and commitments! One thing I DID do as leisure though was to visit the bluebells with Natalie. We vowed we’d get together for a creative jaunt and fought tooth and nail to get it in the calendar between commitments… then Finn ran off and we were late leaving anyway. D’oh!
Firstly though, 15/52 here is from the lovely Ali and Ryan’s preshoot at Dinton Pastures in Wokingham. Unluckily for you, Ali and Ryan aren’t able to make their photographs public, so you’ll have to feast on these ones without their lovely faces in. The image on the left has had no edits, and is exactly as I shot it on April 20th. Cor!
16/52 is my favourite image from the jaunt out into Micheldever woods near Sass and Grace bridal shop with Natalie Miller. She’s looking rather stunning here in this image, though that’s because you haven’t seen the ones afterwards where she’s falling over laughing from too much spinning. We had a blast making these photos and I’m really pleased with it! More to come from the bluebells next week, before they all vanish… I’ve got quite the project up my sleeve!
17/52 brings us to the shoot I did yesterday with the Throatpunch City boys. They have a bit of a spacey theme with their EP “Two Thousand and Punch: A Face Odyssey” as a nod to the Stanley Kubrick classic. Their artwork, expertly put together by bassist Sam Smith (no not that one), really deserved to have some awesome promo photos with it and I think we’ve achieved that together! Massive props to the boys for all experimenting with me and being game for trying new stuff, and to Sam and Pete for being my assistants.
Do yourself a favour and grab their EP using the link above for free or for money!
And finally! To get me up to date, a mere 18 weeks into the year, I give you 18/52!
This photograph I have chosen to illustrate what has been the most important purchase in a long time for me. After 6 years, 3 months and 21 days I finally let my trusty 5d Mark 2 take the back seat and bought a brand spanking new (to me) Canon 5d Mark 3.
I can’t show you any more until we blog the wedding I shot on Sunday with it, but omgomgomgomgomg.
Until next week’s project, that’s me out!
