Last time it was the Daily Mail. This time it’s the Sunday Times, here in the UK. Cody looking ripped, as she monsters her way up Broomfield Hill in Richmond Park…
To all my friends and family, both here in the UK and around the world, Spring is nearly here.
If you are still in lockdown, like we all are here in the UK, hang on in there!

A guest brought them to the house when she came over at Easter. This was the first time we had received guests since lockdown has been eased, here in the UK.
Just recently, I have been contributing and engaging on some photography Facebook groups. The lockdowns across the globe have seen a growth in subscriptions to these groups, and I have enjoyed interacting with newbies and salty old snappers alike.
This shot is taken on a sunny day. The model is in the shade of an Orangery. I’m am in the orangery, shooting out.
This is shot directly in the afternoon sun. You can see that the sun is top right, from the side, slightly behind the model. There is a half gold reflector, filling the shadows from the left. It’s set parallel to the model, so that it doesn’t “uplight” her.
In this shot Cody shows how a professional model can “switch it on”. She looks beautiful, calm…
Here’s something slightly different. I don’t usually produce images like this…
I hope you are all trying to stay sanguine about our mutual incarceration here in the UK.
Me? I’m practising my mindfulness through the pandemic and trying to discover my own Nirvana.
“It’s amazing what you can do with a half gold reflector in the shade.”
I thought I’d post Cody in Richmond Park today. The weather has been overcast here, and I have been stuck in the house, so I thought I’d brighten up the day with this shot Cody, a friend of mine, at the top of Broomfield Hill.
I thought I’d post some lifestyle shots I did for a long standing client of mine.
Shooting at slow shutter speeds is a risky business. After all, who wants blur in a digital image?
Well, back in the day, when I had hair, and I was a fashion assistant, lots of photographers would run a couple of rolls of film at slow speeds. The order of the day was that they would get the shot nailed first, and then, if time allowed, they would take a few risks with a slow shutter speed, or a shallow depth of field.
Like everyone else during the lockdown, I’ve found myself with a little more time on my hands. Despite the easing of the restrictions here in the UK, we are still not allowed to shoot inside. Starved of any creative collaboration, I’ve been looking through last summer’s beauty shoots to find some new beauty in the shots that have never been used. I’ve forced myself to review what has previously been passed over for another shot.
I’ve lost the plot. It’s been a while since they’ve let me me out. And, even longer since I have shot a single image worth a mention. So I thought I’d go back and look at a shoot with Cody.
Back in the summer Cody and I set about creating some portraits and head shots for her modelling agency. She is pushing on with more commercial work and needed some new images for their look books.
