Baby Teddy

| |

Meet baby Teddy, at just a week old he was awake for most of the shoot.

As usual it took a little longer than I’d hoped, as you can only work at the baby’s pace.  However it was great fun and he was a little star so we did get some great images.

Also I have to say his mum was the most chilled first time mum I have ever met!

Below is a small selection of images from the shoot, I’d be interested to know what you think.

Mink

Here are some more pictures from my day out at The British Wildlife Centre. The mink was quite difficult to photograph; it was a hot, sunny day and when it finally did appear it was fast moving and in and out of the rocks.  It only came out for a couple of minutes the whole time we were there so I think we were very lucky to see it.

However, for the short time it was out I got some decent shots.

Tintern Abbey

| |

Whilst in the Forest of Dean we visited Tintern Abbey.

Tintern was only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain, and the first in Wales. It was first built in 1131 and was a bustling monastery until on September 3, 1536 Abbot Wyche surrendered Tintern Abbey to King Henry VIII’s officials and ended a way of life which had lasted 400 years.

Conservation work has been completed on the iconic 13th-century west front – one of the great glories of Gothic architecture in Britain.

Steam Train

| |

When we were in the Forest of Dean we stayed in a little village called Parkend.  This village has the start of a five station steam train track that runs for four and a half miles, as it was on our doorstep we had to visit. 

There is something majestic about steam trains, although obviously old fashioned, they are full of character and charm.

Puzzlewood

| |
We went to the Forest of Dean for a couple of days and while there, we went to a place called Puzzlewood. 

It’s been used in a number of films and television programs and the best way I can describe it is magical.  It was originally an open cast iron ore quarry dating back from the Roman period, that has now been left and reclaimed by nature.  Everything is covered in moss and lichen and really is otherworldly.

Viking part 3

| |
This is the final installment of our Viking shoot.

As mentioned in the earlier blog it was very hot and bright.  Jim did a great job for us without complaining about the thick clothing he was wearing on such a warm day.  We’d been so focused on all the equipment needed for this shoot we’d forgot to take any water.  For the last part of the shoot we added smoke for effect and I think it really worked well. 


I must say as much as I enjoyed the shoot I was glad to wrap it up and go get something to drink.

This shoot was so different to our usual photographic subjects that we thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to do some thing similar in the future.  If you know anyone that does re-enactments and would like to take part in a photoshoot please get in touch.
