Another year, another trip to the Lake District. I was travelling light so left the big camera at home. Below are a few photographs taken with my pocket camera and pocket tripod, which is why the long exposure shots are taken from such a low perspective.
Last week we had amazing shoot at Wells-next-the-sea in Norfolk. Excellent light and such a lovely couple. I still have the sand in my shoes from this shoot.
Last week I had the pleasure of documenting the annual cycling event at Holkham, Pedal Norfolk. I was there for the Saturday and Monday as I was doing a 10k running race in King’s Lynn on the Sunday. This was quite fortunate as the Sunday was a bit of a wash out. This didn’t stop the competitors completing their races. Many of the riders had to ride a total of 250 miles over the 3 days and some even competed in the Time Trial. Olympic Silver Medalist Emma Pooley was there for the weekend, competing in the 250 mile ride as well as giving an excellent question and answer session on the Saturday evening. There was constant entertainment over the weekend along with plenty of Adnams beer. Below are a few of the photographs from the event.
Jonathan & Jiali are having their main wedding ceremony later this year in China, but wanted some photographs taken beforehand on the coast in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. The shoot started off with strong winds, so the veil was straight out of Jiali’s hair before her head got pulled off. The wind soon dropped and it was such a perfect evening. No-one was about on the beach and in the town, skies were bright blue with a some feathery white clouds dotted about to add some contrast and detail. They both brought a change of wedding clothes with them which made the shoot so much more fun as we had new shapes and colours to play with throughout the evening. Jiali’s traditional Chinese wedding dress was particularly stunning…..
All the shots shown above are taken with my wide angle lens (24mm f1.4) as Tim was in charge of the portrait lens (85mm f1.4), but you will be able to see the combined shots on our main blog soon.
