mermaids and more…


Happy Easter!

It has been another busy and eventful week here in and around the gallery. There have been some really interesting photo shoots including a mermaid.

Poppy is in her final year of university and designed and made the costume.

It certainly caused a stir on the beach, with many spectators. The beach and shell were the perfect setting for the outfit and we achieved some fantastic results.

I have also been doing various other projects and portraits this week too.

I photographed the MacDowell family which was lots of fun.

I also gave a photo training workshop to the local camera club. It was great to meet people so enthusiastic about photography. We covered portraits using off camera flash, landscapes and post editing.

I have had some fantastic feedback:

‘You gave us a wonderful evening, even if it was a little chilly on the beach! There were many expressions of appreciation and I know that we all learned a lot from the outdoor session. Your hospitality afterwards at the gallery was very much appreciated by all of us.’ Chris – APG president

‘Many thanks for a stimulating and interesting evening of tutelage and guidance yesterday, every one expressed their enjoyment of both elements. Thank you too for your hospitality on arrival at your gallery, that was much appreciated.’ Peter – APG Programme secretary
