Quiet on the Home Front

Standard

I know I’ve been as quiet as a mouse recently, BUT, that is because I have just successfully launched my KICKSTARTER.

 

It would mean a lot to me if you (who ever the omnipresent YOU of the internet are) would pop over and check it out, maybe even back a tiny contribution to the cause (new gear).

There are several retouching, shoot, wedding package and promo shoots available as rewards for backing!

Thank you m’dears, have a lovely week!

Darlington Pride 2014

Standard

I moonlight as a photographer in a bar, and this week we had the infamous Darlington Pride, which every year brings out most of the town and some of the best entertainment and offers available all year. I started at 9:45pm and finished at 3am, it was a cracking evening all round.

We had Miss Daisy Diamond hosting and DJ’ing on the terrace (Candypop):

Strength and Beauty can be synonymous, you don’t need to be brawny to have strength and you don’t need to be conventional to be beautiful. All males in this project have the black stripe, females have colour matched stripe and lips.

Hi All!

Standard

Just a sneak peek in to what I may or may not be revealing daily/weekly/monthly. Naturally some days may come hard and heavy with the posts, others not so much as I don’t always spend my days in front of a computer screen!

I have decided as I enjoyed the daily prompt during my last stint online, that I will continue participating in them, this might be a daily thing as it will expand my focus genre/theme wise – which is never a bad thing(!) – but could be a 3-4 times weekly occurrence. I have a few projects in the pipeline, (as well as some that are on-going); so you can guarantee that I’ll be banging on about those!

Anyway, stay, go or follow [;)] I don’t mind.

Keep your eyes open!
