News of latest shoots and the occasional piece on my thoughts about aspects of photography.


More from Burgh Castle
29th September 2011 - 0 comments
On Tuesday night I managed to achieve some good luck with the weather and conditions for my continued work on my latest landscape commission.Fresh(?) from a 30 minute run only an hour before hand, I made it to Burgh Castle and yomped to the riverside view in time for the golden light that had been missing on Monday evening. I was far from alone though, the place was very popular, with a lot of people gathering to view the sunset.
I'm hopeful of a more dramatic sky to appear in the not too distant future, but whilst we have this hot period, I doubt it will be anytime soon. So I'll be back to anxiously watching the sky in the west every evening until one appears, which is a ritual that my wife enjoys hugely!!

Beach Shoot

Editing has begun on my latest portrait shoot images, a fantastic session with the Buckoke family at Gorleston Beach. One of many great locations in the area for some portrait shots. I didn't have time to make sandcastles, but had a lot of fun getting some great photos. As good as the Buckokes were, the real star models were George and Rosie, seen below, having a cuddle on the post. Surely this must count as the pinnacle of my career so far!!

Landscapes Are Back

Now that summer is fading and autumn is on it's way, I can add some landscape photography back into the mix. Sunday morning I had the pleasure of working on a landscape commission at the ruined remains of Burgh Castle fort. As you may see by my landscape portfolio I have shot many evenings at the marshes near Burgh Castle, but never at the fort.
I arrived late at 6.30am, most of the pre-dawn colour had faded (Note to self, the snooze button is not an option!!) Luckliy, the sky was fairly clear, so I didn't miss too much, photographically anyway. I'll soon get back into the habit.
That said, I loved the hour and a half I spent wandering about the ruins, trying various compositions, I had the place to myself, bar one or two occassional dog walkers. The peace and quiet was food for the soul!!
