Enjoyable Shoot on the Norfolk Broads

This shoot on the Norfolk Broads was only a few weeks ago, but already seems like a lifetime ago – oh how I miss the bright days, warm weather and light evenings… winter is creeping ever closer!

Towards the end of August I popped along to How Hill and Thurne to shoot some frames of happy holiday makers and the wonderful scenery. Enjoying a couple of boat trips, we found some willing models and set about some pretty quick setups to get some tourism material shot.. a thoroughly nice day spent on the river… couldn’t wish for much else could we!

Spotlight @ Norwich Theatre Royal

I find it hard to believe we’re already at the point of the Autumn (ish) Spotlight event at the Norwich Theatre Royal… a slightly smaller attendance this time around, but the benefits of which meant that people seemed to find time to network and ‘work the floor’

The speaker, was Neil Smith, joint founder and producer of the National Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company, who entertained the audience with a few lovely anecdotes – I particularly enjoyed the description of one of opera trips to Egypt at the time of the Arab Uprising.. having been around Egypt at that time, I can appreciate the humor and indeed concern.

Beautiful Wedding at Waxham Barns

A month ago I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Ant & Martine at their wonderful wedding on the Norfolk Coast at Waxham Barns.
 
Summer was truly in full swing and we were greeted by lovely weather, beautiful blue sky, great food and well stocked bars!
 
The barns provided the perfect romantic space for their wedding, with the beach an ideal backdrop for some extra photographs.
 
Already a month into their marriage, I’m sure these images will provide a lovely little reminder of their special day. Congratulations folks

Working with Young people in Saxmundham.. | Photography workshop

The past few days have been an absolute pleasure working with @access_ourwork on a photography project at Saxmundham Youth Booth.
We had a ‘full house’ of inspiring young people who wanted to improve their photography skills and boy did they achieve some stunning results.
Wednesday saw us heading to Dunwich, where a photography workshop was led in the woods, using the rain as a wonderful resource for some stunning creative photography.
Yesterday was spent processing images and fine tuning some street photography techniques in Saxmundham…

The final choices and those that have been printed are really inspiring and show the depth of creativity young people have.
Simply stunning imagery..

Spot of Photography at a Norwich Acupuncture Clinic

An enjoyable and interesting recent shoot saw me popping along to the charming Three Treasures Acupuncture clinic in Norwich to work with Nicola.

I’ve witnessed first hand the benefits of acupuncture from numerous visits to China, but to really get an insight into the ‘art’ and craft of this fabulous treatment was a real pleasure and indeed interesting. The years studying & constant CPD has meant Nicola is a real knowledge bank regarding her industry and I thoroughly enjoyed a formal introduction to Acupuncture and to understand the numerous treatments on offer and the health benefits these can have.

Radar Checks on the Broads Waterways

Radar checks on the Broads waterways are a crucial part of keeping the numerous rivers in good order, preserving the quality of the banks and also protecting wildlife.

Last week I enjoyed a morning on the River Ant with the rangers, as they patrolled the river and kept a friendly check on the progress of the numerous boats.

The Broads Authority & The ‘Broads Plan 2017’

The Broads Authority launched the ‘Broads Plan 2017’ at the end of July in the grounds of the lovely Whittlingham Broad.

Every five years the plan is reviewed by the Broads Authority, our partners and anyone with an interest in the Broads, through a public consultation process, and a new plan is published.

Using wonderfully strong photography and design throughout, the plan is really a great example of how such literature should be produced to engage the local population.
