It was a complete pleasure to photograph at First Focus recently as a commission from The Fakenham Beacon for publication in their June 2017 issue. First Focus does such a valuable job and is run with such dedication that it deserves all the exposure and plaudits it gets. Thank you to all the members of First Focus who allowed me to photograph then and to manager April Simnor for her enthusiastic support.
It was great to be asked to update the photos for Fakenham’s private hire, chauffeur and wedding service, Near and Far. I’d taken the original photos for Chris’s website and publicity material but now that Chris has updated his car, he needed some more. We used the same location and repeated a number of the previous shots as Chris had been so pleased with them. The car is magnificent!
It was great to be with Susan and Tony for a couple of hours before their wedding. They were both ‘second timers’ so wanted very, very relaxed photos in a location they loved before they then went on to actually do the deed! They chose to have photos in Blakeney which as any North Norfolk-ite knows is a beautifully picturesque harbour location on the coast. We took some inside and outside shots and got some pictures that Susan and Tony were very happy with.
A family in the making… Neil and Kristine celebrated the upcoming birth of their first baby by coming to the studio for a very relaxed maternity shoot. It was in fact a gift for them from Kristine’s sister, who bought a KOP gift voucher for them. We had a lovely time and got some fabulous pictures which I know they’ll treasure.
I got to know lovely burlesque performer Yippee IKay a couple of years ago and I’m now pleased to say that she’s a friend as well as a wonderful talent! Yippee came to the studio recently for a shoot and we were lucky enough (with the weather) to do both some inside and outside shots of a couple of her routines, which she will be using for promotion and to send to castings. At the end of the shoot we had a little time left just to have some fun taking pictures with some of her fantastic clothing and props.
The lovely Tracey and Gary got married at St John the Evangelist in King’s Lynn on a beautiful September day. Given the location of the church, we had the opportunity to take photos in The Walks which formed a fantastic backdrop and then we moved on to Knights Hill Hotel for the evening. Tracey and Gary had put everything into their day; it was all planned down to the last beautiful detail, but at the same time it felt relaxed and fun. A perfect day.
