Jo and I try to walk in Richmond Park as often as we can. Last Sunday afternoon there was changeable weather over the park and I was rewarded with this shot of the Royal Oak.
For those of you not from the United Kingdom. Richmond Park is a natural park:
“Richmond Park is London’s largest Royal Park and the largest urban park in Europe, covering an area of 2,500 acres. It is a National Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, of both national and international importance for wildlife conservation.”

Striding out towards an artistic future
I recently did a portrait session with Lou Collins an up and coming artist. She paints beautiful textured nudes using punchy colours and translucent materials. The works are both exciting and vibrant. You can print from her website at: https://www.wildat-art.com/
We had some fun with this shot and Lou looks great in her Loubitans with the wind machine at full tilt.

Rendezvous – A blast from the past! A short Film for Theo Fennell.
The video project happened over two days. Clearly, there were many weeks of post production after this. The first day was shot on location in Pelham Place, Chelsea, just outside the Theo Fennell flagship store.
The second day was at Holborn studios in London, where we shots the interiors and the optical components of the special effects shots.

When doing this I am often distracted with images and shots that took me a while to work up. This shot is one of them.
