Share your world – 7th April 2020

Another weird week, full of ups and downs. Even if we could leave the house the weather has been so awful, we are better off inside, April is normally so nice, a little chilly at night, but so good for sleeping. Not much else to report, so let’s get straight into SYW shall we? Questions:…

Monday’s Musings…

Monday. Again. Well it’s hard to really do much, isn’t it? Most of the world is stuck at home in isolation mode, we are no different. I think if it wasn’t for my shoulder, it wouldn’t be so bad, but I am finding it difficult to concentrate and do anything for long periods of time.…

I had been looking for something fun to do with some friends and students for an end of the year get together, a change from the usual Sunday brunch and champagne or a ‘play-date’ in the studio. Something fun and inclusive of photographers and non-photographers alike. I came across this European Christmas Cookie class by…

Share your world – 26th November 2019

With barely five weeks left of the year, I can see things slowly starting to slow down and wrap up. I had a very relaxing weekend with good food and good people, time on the couch, time with the animals, time for a sleep in (of sorts). My last workshop for the year is just…

Croissants – three different ways

In a recent workshop I taught, we had these croissants, which I sliced in half, filled with Nutella and fresh strawberries and then we dusted with icing sugar. We captured the icing sugar in action by using a studio flash. Sadly as good as they look, once we finished shooting we actually threw them in…
