Graduates

Full of joy, excitement and happiness.
We love ’em.

Following a bunch of freshly qualified young men around Leeds University at their Conferment is challenging and full of twists and turns. With hundreds of other graduates to navigate around and their friends, families and loved ones all vying for photographic space we’re pushed to the limits to get our work done.
But with some gentle coaxing and persuading we manage to get enough to fulfil our task for the day and after a tough half a day on campus we’re happy with what we got in the bag.

Thank you guys for letting us photograph your very special day.

working overtime

Who’d have though working overtime would have been such good fun?

Here’s a group of people with the necessary skills to get things done.

Go to work
Finish work
Comb hair, apply makeup, change into corporate T-shirt
Grab a glass of fizzy or crack open a bottle of beer
Step in front of the cameras and just go for it!
Laugh at your pictures, re-shoot, have another drink, get more pics, laugh at everything.
Finish the nibbles then head out on the town for a great night out.

Now THAT’s a photoshoot.

My job is ACE!

Thank you guys for letting me into your offices and grabbing a snapshot of the real you. What a fab, vibrant lot you are. You made me smile.

If you and your company want real, happy faces on your website, all you have to do is call 0784 3099903 and book a session. We’ll do the rest.
All we need is some office space to set up our lights and backdrops and you just have to bring your best smile. Heck.. it’s up to you if you make it into a party.

Headshot Hotshot

Headshot.. boom!

More and more businesses are dealing with an online presence so it’s important to show everyone who they’re dealing with.
A professional photo is a must, you want your clients to see who is doing business with them. Start with a face. Everyone likes a face.

Studio quality headshots are easily shot with the right equipment and know how. They don’t even need to be in a studio! Heck, in the space of your office or even your living room you too can get yourself in the frame and have great profile images for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Skype or your own website.

Get noticed. Get smart. Get a professional portrait.

It only takes a minute girl..

Baby

Oh Baby.. You’ve got it.

Since the moment you showed me your cup of Cheerio’s I knew you were star material.
You came up to the camera and made me focus, stopped me in my tracks and drew me into your eyes. Wow!

Models. They don’t grow on trees you know. You have to go through the training, put the effort in, work at it. You can’t just strut up and expect it all to just.. well.. happen! There’s a ton of stuff to learn –  Poise, composure, attitude, eye contact, confidence and STUFF! OK?

When I say “fold your arms”.. and you do it..

When I say “Look into the lens”.. and you do it..

When you grab a cushion and prop yourself on the table and tell me to shoot.. I DO IT!

Baby

 

Not bad Isla.. not bad.

We’ll work on that a little and maybe, just maybe you’ll have a future in the industry.

Just sayin’

Give me a break

Another cake smash? Really? Give me a break!

Give me a break

 

There seems to be a demand for cake around here and it’s creating quite a stir amongst us 1 year old’s.
I mean.. we’re getting a little bit confused about it all.
One minute we’re told – no.. just a little. No.. no more. NO! Stop now!
Next we’re being told – Go On.. grab as much as you can, get in there!
Well, what do we do?

I’ve seen the cutie photos online. The ones with the fake background and balloons all around. Yeah.. they’re great. That’s not me. I know I’m supposed to look good while I’m being naughty. I can do that, but I’m not gonna. Whadya take me for?
If someone just thrusts a whopping great cake in front of me and wants me to have a go at the good stuff, then be prepared for carnage. I can really do THAT!

_

Unfortunately for this little lady, we can’t show the video we shot of this occasion. It wouldn’t be nice. Not nice at all. Too much mayhem. Too much violence to cake.
So much destruction and demolition. The poor white chocolate had no chance. Cracked, whacked, smacked and split like a.. er.. white chocolate cake should be. That cake had it coming. It really was a smash and grab. Those multi-coloured smarties inside never stood a chance. Gobbled in a few moments. A real mess.

We have the evidence. We have the footage. It will never be released for public viewing. There are some things we must keep private. Some things that aren’t meant for general release. These things are best kept for family viewing, private.. home stuff.. happy stuff.. fun stuff.
We hope that in future years you too will have to endure enjoy those moments when fully grown, sitting down with your family or perhaps a future partner and reliving the day through our video, when you were made to smash cake.

Cute? Ha!

 

CAKE

2017-07-13T13:45:36+00:00April 28th, 2017|baby, events, portraits|

Cake.. smashing!

Well, what else do you suggest we do with it.. eat it? Hmmm…?

cake smash

Imagine if mum and dad plonk you down in front of your very own creamy dream sponge and encourage you to dive right in and do your best to demolish (devour) said cake.
Wouldn’t that be smashing? It sure would. Can’t think of a better way to spend a sunny afternoon with the family.

Here’s our recipe for your very own cake smash.

  1. Find a safe place preferably with easy clean surface  – this is gonna get messy – gardens or kitchen floors are a good start
  2. Use easy clean wipe down vinyl or plastic throw away sheets – you won’t regret it
  3. Undress and prepare at least one baby – don’t worry they’re washable
  4. Obtain one very soft, very creamy, very squishable confection – the creamier the better
  5. Place all ingredients together and stand back behind the photographer – be ready to duck when the sponge mix comes your way
  6. Shout, wave your arms and generally act like a total idiot to encourage the carnage that no doubt will occur
  7. If you have other small prepared participants throw them into the pot and persuade them to get creative, especially with the cream ingredient.
  8. Laugh a lot (obligatory)
  9. Get the hose ready (also obligatory)
  10. Enjoy those moments and make sure you get lots and lots of pictures for the family album.

Gotta love cake!

Commercial Break

Commercial Break..

 

Commercial Break .. not really.. just a pause between photoshoots.
With one or two additional sessions popped in there to keep everyone on their toes.

This is the 2nd time I’ve photographed these lovely people and my brief was a simple job of grabbing some new faces, updating some others and then capturing some “live” action around the office to provide them with some new material for use on their website. Sounds easy enough eh?..

Shooting ambient light has always been the photographers challenge, modern cameras are now much more capable at capturing an image in difficult conditions with super sensitivity always touted as the bees knees. It seems we have it all. Doesn’t always happens that way it seems.

I had a great bunch of willing models, loads of space.. and flippin’ ‘orrible British weather! Something you don’t think of as having any effect on indoor photography but hey.. go figure. We got some great shots. We created some beauties just right for putting up there on tha t’internet thing. Everything looked good. People were happy. High fives everywhere. But it just didn’t look sharp. Something didn’t gell.

So today we re-shot a few frames and because the sun was out and we had our happy hat on, we grabbed what we needed and finished the job. Yay!

 

Love my job. Whatever it takes.

I’m one happy photobunny.
