Getting Busy

In last couple of weeks I have had an increasing number of shoots. All in studio. Up to four a week. Lovely stuff!

Makeup Artist Portfolio Shoot

I have just done a marathon studio shoot with 3 models with different makeup effects for a makeup artist friend's portfolio. It took me the best part of a week, working 6 hours a day on the PC to edit all the images. It was a great learning experience as in the past I have tended to completely finish off the editing of a shoot before I would do another. This was like 3 shoots rolled into one.

Glamour and Pinup

Lately I have been doing a lot of Glamour and Pinup type work. I love it as it really stretches one's creativity to get tasteful results while remaining "Fun and Sexy"

Recently I have been concentrating more on outdoor shoots for models and have shot in some stunning locations with very pleasing results.
I also have a new Website. I received this as a birthday present from Natalie, my niece who is a graphic designer and her husband, Rudi who designs and maintains websites for a living.


June 2010 Update

I have not added anything to this blog for a while so here are a few updates of what has been going on in my life.

Firstly I am no longer doing any tourist guiding. After a very exhausting 4 day tour up the Garden Route recently I have decided that it is time to move on. The money one earns compared to the time and effort one has to put in, is really just not worth it. I am now concentrating full time on Photography.

I have upgraded my studio equipment with extra studio lights, new backdrops and a new setup. I also do a lot of combined studio shoots with another photographer, Fiona Byrns. I often move my lights etc to her house as she has much more space than mine and also an area with nice natural lighting. We work very well together and have had some stunning results. I have also upgraded my camera to a Canon 50D which is built more for punishing everyday use.
