My work in print and shameless Plug.

A little while ago I was asked to shoot some product shots for my good friend and web guru, Gareth @Dogelg Design, I had completelty forgotten about the images until his site went live last week.
Head on over to Dogleg Design and check out his new site plus see my imagery in the top right hand corner of each page.
Personally I am well impressed with the images and they way they fit site.
It's so good see your own work on display sometimes.

8/52 - Little red trike.

it was my boy's 2nd birthday on Sunday and we got him this radio flyer retro trike. He is a little too short still to pedal it properly but he is loving just pushing him self along on it.
Taken outside our house, where all the best places to trike are, with my 40d at 245-105mm f/4L and speedlight 580 EXII off camera fired by cactus trigger off low camera left.

There a re couple more shots on my flickr stream of him on his trike too.

Dean and Bonnie :: May 2009

This was a great little wedding, nice and intimate with just close friends and family there to help celebrate Dean and Bonnie wedding. Set in the picturesque church overlooking Braunton and surrounding areas of Heanton it was a lovely day. A couple after my own heart really as the wedding car was a sub 16 second 1/4 mile split screen camper. Thankfully the driver kept it sedate! (ish). As ever I managed to stop off enroute to the venue with the couple and have 20 mins with just them to capture a few private tender moments. One of the shots of them in the field of rape seed flowers is currently being used in the latest edition of the North Devon Gazette's bridal magazine on the cover.

7/52 - Down and dirty. Well sandy

I was originally intending to shot each member of my family as my 52 project subjects but seeing as it is my boys second birthday very soon, I thought I would continue on this month with Jack being the star.
This was taken on Saunton beach, North Devon. For some reason he got down on the sand to dig his hole, obviously I followed suit.
Taken with my 40D and 24-105mm f/4 L, combo'd with my 580 EXII on Cactus v4's fired from camera high left @ 1/4 power I think.

More of Alice thru my looking glass

A few more from my recent photo session with new model Alice.

6/52 - Jackson

Well you have suffered my ugly mug for the last 5 images so I thought it about time I changed the subject matter and focused on my family. First up is my eldest, Jackson, who will be 2 at the end of this month, time has really flown by and everyday he seems that little bit more grown up and independent. It's scary how the time flies.

More images of my boy can be found on my flickr stream.

A simple set up, single speedlight @1/8th power directly behind subject firing onto grey background with speedlight in ezybox softbox @ 1/8th power camera right and slightly high, all fired with cactus v4's and shot with a Canon 40D and 24-105mm f/4L. Processed in Lightroom and CS4.

5/52 - Normal service resumes

Well I did it the first month of 2010 with out a shave or hair cut. Treated myself yesterday with a trip to the barbers, the first in 9 years, just so he could hack through the beard growth and thick head of hair I was sporting. It still needed a little finishing trim at home but I got the worst done.
So back to normal now, clean shaven again and respectable. ready for the wedding season to kick off this weekend.
Considering this was another self portrait this week I am chuffed with how it turned out. Love the graduated backdrop from the gelled speedlight firing directly up the background. Stoked.

Set up for this self portrait shot.

Grey lastolite collapsible background with blue gelled speedlight 430ez @ 1/16 power on it, 580 exII through Lastolite ezybox @1/8 power on me just off to side of camera right slightly, camera on tripod fired by delay trigger, 1/250 sec, iso 100, f/4
Flashes fired by cactus v4, image processed in lightroom and cs4
