Welcome to our blog

What’s not to love this time of year than the fragrance from a freshly cut bunch of sweet-peas.

So you want to start a photography business? Part III: Your website. Do you really need a website? 15-20 years ago the number of businesses with a website was very minimal with many photographers having an actual studio on the local High Street or a car boot full of sample albums to show their potential clients.

As many of you who know me will already know, I do not generally photography people and model work is an unknown quantity altogether!! However, over the past couple of months John has suggested that I get to know the lighting in the studio a little better and that we engage some models so I can get the hang of it.

Several times over the past few weeks I have either been asked various questions related to starting up a photography business OR have heard the infamous “I have a nice camera, how hard can it be to run my own business?” This has prompted me to put together a series of blog posts illustrating

The thorax of a Giant Pomponia I was shooting in the studio recently.  

The joys of image theft!! In the past I have written about protecting on-line images, how to ensure copyright of your images using IPTC and how the ignorance used by some people makes them think that image theft totally acceptable. To date I have been lucky enough to avoid the problem … until today that is!!!

One of the gorgeous bible illustrations I have been working with recently – The Bluebell Angel.

I’ve noticed that every now and again something happens, sometimes good and sometimes bad, that takes you on an unexpected photographic journey. It is happening to me more and more frequently recently and taking me on some totally unexpected routes.
