Featured - Rock n' Roll Bride and The Photography Parlour

I have mentioned The Photography Parlour a couple of times on this blog and I have nothing but positive things to say about the site. Rather than allowing the photography industry to become secular and competitive in a negative way, the site brings together photographers, allowing us to share and learn from each other.
I have already met up with a number of photographers to take part in shoot swaps and I got very excited when a discussion about a vintage shoot started.  Eager to learn and develop my skills I jumped at the chance to get involved.  

The shoot took place back in September and I have held off blogging about the day until now as Kat from Rock n' Roll Bride wanted to use my photographs for a feature she was working on.
Below are some of my favourite photos from the shoot but you can find more of my photos over on Rock n' Roll Bride. Also, check out flickr to see photographs by everyone involved in the day.

London - Columbia Road

I love London and I have a few favourite spots that I never tire of, so when I got my new camera I knew where I would go first.......Columbia Road.
Columbia Road is a little oasis of calm in the middle of the city. At the weekends it is a hive of activity, full or creativity and community. I enjoy photographing the area as it is so different to the London most people think of.  Hope you enjoy these photos!

Leo


Meet Leo. I first photographed Leo at Alice's first birthday party and I am so glad I got the opportunity to photograph him again.
Leo's parents really liked the photographs I took at the birthday party and they invited me into their home to take some portraits of their little boy. It was a great shoot as Leo was so relaxed and so happy to just sit and play with his toys.

This is just a small selection of the images from the day.

George

Meet George, a friend of my niece Alice. I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon with him and his parents as they wanted some nice photos to send to their families.
George has mounds of energy and doesn't sit still, so I had lots of fun chasing him around the house while he played with his toy cars and a fantastic fire engine. The day was also quite exciting as George got his first pair of shoes. It will not be long before he is up and about and when that happens I am sure there will be no stopping him.
These are some of may favourite photos from the day and I am so happy with the results.
