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.  

Below is a small collection of images from the shoot.

I’d be interested to know what you think.

Last time, I told you about a Viking shoot we were doing, with Jim our friendly Viking re-enactor.  
After the studio session we went on location to a small pocket park not far away from where I live.  It was a lot brighter than I'd hoped it would be and very warm, but I think we did OK.

Below is a small collection of images from the shoot, more to follow later.

I’d be interested to know what you think.

Jim’s an enthusiastic Viking re-enactor with all his own gear, so when we asked if he’d mind sitting for us he was happy to oblige.  On the day of the shoot, the hottest day of the year so far, Jim turned up wearing two layers of thick wool and refused to take one off as it might spoil the look (what a top man).


The studio shoot went well and we got some great shots.  Then we moved on to an outdoor setting, I’ll post a selection of those next time.

Baby Poppy

After having photographed both Hayley & Dan’s wedding and their first child Tommie as a newborn, we were especially delighted when they asked us to do some newborn images of their second baby, Poppy.


When these were taken Poppy was just over 2 weeks old, she was very tolerant of us moving her to get her in the right position although she was a bit of a wriggler and didn’t always stay there.  We were hoping to get some images of Poppy with her big brother, unfortunately he was like a whirlwind, so Nan came to collect him.

Darrion & Charlie

We were delighted when Charlie asked us to cover her special day.

Their wedding was conducted at St. Andrews Church in Great Billing, whilst the reception was held at the new Moulton Community Center on Sandy Hill Road.

It was a hot, bright and sunny day which helped to make the wedding very enjoyable The Caribbean food was great.
