A Photographer’s Year: Review Of 2015 (Part 2)
JULY and a photographer’s challenge to get some new website images for a local firm, which involved carefully arranging some heavy machinery and shouting instructions from a cherry picker. The result was a smart photo the company were delighted with.
In another interesting commission, I met a friendly Fylde farmer and was introduced to calf igloos. I think the calves are wondering why he is inside and not them!
Between Lake District showers a window seat make a good spot for a relaxed wedding portrait.
I’m all for a bit of fun and the gents at this Ribby Hall wedding were up for taking on a gnome-like appearance for a photo by the lake!
Still in my busy wedding season, Sharon & Alan’s wedding at Lancaster House Hotel clearly looked better this way up!
I was treated to a lovely sunset on the Ashton Memorial’s granite stonework to make this wedding portrait more special, before taking the couple up into the glow.
Occasionally things don’t quite go to plan and after this commercial shot, my customer accidentally drove over my camera bag. Oops! Fortunately, most of my equipment was over my shoulder at the time.
This is one of my favorite jobs of the year, meeting an inspirational weightlifting vicar from Bacup who was more than happy to pose for a press photo shoot.
NOVEMBER and a fun birthday party hire in Morecambe.
It always makes my job easier and more enjoyable when my customers dress up and are in good spirits! I’ve been booked for a lot of events this year, which I love doing.
Children and animals make for great, if not challenging, portrait photo shoots and I like to try to capture natural interaction between the two. Patience and luck are required!
DECEMBER Christmas was captured with a bit of Photoshop magic in my last family portrait booking of the year.
I hope you have enjoyed looking back at a few of my more interesting, amusing or challenging bookings of the year. Look out for my regular Photographer’s Ramblings articles here.
