David's Photoshoot

David's photo shoot went really well today. He was so much fun to work with. I brought him to the local forest and let him do his own thing while I captured every moment on camera. David's book is in process. I've just started this project so it will be a week till I get the finished product.

I wanted to capture David as he is, as you can see he's most happy when he's at play in the fields. I shot this with my 70-200mm lens, for a nice depth of field


Hey guys, Here we have little Emily. I did a photo shoot of her today. We just walked through her dads back field. You'd be surprised at the beautiful shots you can take just right outside your back garden. I got the first three shots at sunset, beautiful light. She was a delight to work with. I'm in the process of designing a book about her. Its a 36 paged hardcover book H  8.3 x W 11.7 which comprises all the the images I take on the photo shoot. Which is all on location as I feel it is outside in natures surroundings and light you can capture your child's true personality.
She's very excited to see the finished piece. As so am I! 

I love shooting with the wide angle lens when there's a beautiful blue sky like this one with natures surroundings. Capturing kids of guard is the best. As you can capture their true personality and thoughts.

Mary McAleese_day after show

The day after the show, I was in the gallery, when I saw Mary McAleese walking down the ale of chq. I started a conversation with her and invited her into the gallery. She politely came in and had a look at my work. She was so nice and congratulated me and wished me the best of luck in my future as she knows I've only finished college a few months. She liked my dogs and she had a look at my dog book which I gave her. Hope you enjoy it Mary . Thanks to her for taking time out from her busy schedule and giving her time to me. appreciate it. I asked her if it was possible to get a photograph with her and my 3 pieces of work, she was very obliging and said yes, which is the image you see below
