An excellent way to get in the Christmas spirit: spend an hour taking photos of The Children’s Room Christmas Party. Can you spot the local celeb? There are more photos on my Facebook site
I spent yesterday afternoon on Three Cliff Beach with Louise and Simon. They’re getting married on April Fool’s Day next year and fancied their engagement shoot on the famous Gower beach. The photos are in my editing suite right now, but here is one image just to set the scene. More very soon.
Back in March 2011 I photographed Sarah and Steve’s wedding; several images from that lovely day are on the wedding page. Recently I was fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph Sarah and Steve’s first-born, Evie. We had been hoping to create a bump and baby set of images but circumstances got in the way! Here are a few images of the gorgeous girl.
Last weekend I met the Sullivan troop: Alice, Dai, Jack, Benjamin and Hannah, at Singleton Park for a Family Photoshoot. We managed to complete the shoot in and around the standing stones and in the Botanical Gardens just before the rain joined us. There are more images to see, share and like at my Facebook site
I have bumped into Colin several times over the last three years whilst walking Monty. He walks down from Townhill to the Singleton and Brynmill Parks with his two dogs. That’s a fair old walk for a man in his seventies. The dog with him here is Kaylee, who is not as sociable as the other more sociable one of the pair. He or she (not sure) was off socialising with Monty when I took this shot.
I bumped into my neighbour Sara with her Mum collecting some food for their Guinea Pigs in Singleton Park, Swansea. Snowy and Sammy were having a little run around when my hound Monty caught a whiff of them and wandered over. Sara picked them up and spoilt Monty’s fun! Snowy is apparently quiet and Sammy vocal and that was the case whilst I took this photo.
This is Jim Jones at The Chattery in Swansea. Jim, or as he is known on his new album, Small Town Jones, is a musician from North Devon who sings in a kinda americana style. I went to see him at our local cafe music scene last month and was taken by his lovely tone and melodic tunes. Up until his recent album Freight Ships he was known as Jim Jones, but there are a lot of Jim Joneses in cyberland – preachers and rap artists amongst them – so Small Town it is. Take a listen here.
I have been working with Steve Walters on this website. We have agreed an exchange of skills. I am going to provide his family with a Family Portrait Photo Shoot at Langland Bay and he is using his experience and ideas to look at how I can reshape my website and increase visits and enquiries. So far I have revamped my Family Portrait pages, I am running a survey to gather opinion about the logo and I have made a few minor tweeks to other content and the logo. Basic tenets used so far include: keeping all imagery as small as possible and ensuring that the content focuses on the benefits to the potential customer. I have plenty more to be doing including a big revamp of the wedding pages.
Steve’s business is called Small Business Helper and he is currently revamping his own website. He specialises in Lead Generation, Website start-ups, revision and overhaul, improving your Marketing, software advice and IT support. I can guarantee you that he knows his stuff and is very attuned to the requirements of the small local business. You can contact him via his web pages or visit his Facebook page.
This week’s image develops the portrait theme in a new direction; moving from last week’s contemporary style to a bleaker, yet more eloquent scene. There was no movement of the objects as you see them here in a dirty quiet side street just off the main drag of Swansea City centre. Nor was any digital manipulation used. A plain truth is discerned. A life described. And then we move on.

Helen and Dave love vintage life. Fresh from their very own back garden festival – Mean Man – here’s a few images especially created for them.
Laura and Mike got married last month. Ever the couple to do things a little differently they chose a purple and black theme, a theme that followed the guests and every other wedding detail. Here’s a few photos to give you a feel for the colour (sorry) of the occasion.
Here is an image from a recent family portrait shoot with Linzi, Mark, Ashley and William. We were out and about in Clyne Gardens, which is ablaze at this time of year with fresh green growth and flowering rhododenrons. Ironically, I preferred this image taken on a small, pointless tower amongst the trees.
