I kept thinking that it had been a while since my last blog and when I looked a few days ago I realised it had been over a year. Im often telling people the importance of regular blogging and although I've been doing blogs for other companies I thought it was about time to take my own advice.
I had a big plan to go through the last year and do this massive slideshow (you would have loved it I'm sure) but after spending hours digging out hard drives, looking at one shoot then reprocessing a few images I realised that probably wasn't the way forward. So instead you get more recent work that was easy to publish.
Obviously there has been lots of gruelling work going on behind the scenes but I have got to attend some great events, meet great people and sample some great food and drink over these last months:
CHEF. Working with Sharps and Nathan Outlaw at the Mariners charity event, a host of amazing chefs pairing food with amazing beer. You can read more about the event on their website.
BEER. Spending the day with Ali (beer-obsessed bad-ass in charge of London beer week) and the Sharps team making beer inspired by gin (under supervision of Tarquin).
BALLET. It will be no surprise that I've been taking pictures of Morwenna. Unfortunately she doesn't pay me very well... unless you count generally keeping me and the kids alive as payment. She has been rolling out BalletFit in North Cornwall and if you see her in a long coat she is probably just hiding a tutu. More info on Facebook Page
HANDBAGS. I don't profess to know much about handbags but I know cool stuff when I see it. The super talented Shelley developing her range under the new label BagFace. Was great working on a lookbook for her latest bags and now just waiting for my man-bag to be designed.. Go follow on instagram @bagface_
OYSTERS. Ive learnt loads about oysters while working with Katy AKA The Oyster Lady. If you have oyster love or want to learn how to share some oyster love go check her out. www.theoysterlady.co.uk
YOGA. Doing a shoot with Amy was great fun, although a little embarrassing when they can talk face to face with their knee but you let out a little groan picking up a lens cap from the floor... @amy_nextwave
ROOMS. Bosinver just seems to go from strength to strength. They basically run a small village but still find time to go and accept all the awards that seem to be constantly thrown at them. I work with a awesome stylist called Jess on this ongoing process of trying to photograph all that Bosinver has to offer. www.bosinver.co.uk
There still seems to be lots more to go on about but I need coffee (thats a blog in itself) so maybe I will come back to this, or do another blog, or leave it for another year...
