Sunseeker Rallye

It that time of year around here, the Sunseeker Rallye hits Dorset. I took some night shots last night, but I they belong in the bin..

Anyway, instead of sticking with the main crowed by the house, I wandered into the forest to find a good spot for some action photographs, something that showed movement, but wasn't boring.. I found a great corner where the cars threw up gravel!

Pete Christie

Well yesterday I had what I consider to be the biggest shoot of my career to date, I was asked by a local music legend Pete Christie to shoot the photographs for his new album FRANK. I've shot Pete at his gigs, and he really liked my photography over anyone else that has ever taken his photograph. Thank you for choosing me to take your photographs Pete!

Only the one photo for now, the rest will have to wait until the CD has been released. This was just a lighting test shot, but I like the way its turned out.

Wedding Photography Before and After

by Robert Whetton 25. February 2009 01:59
A couple of weeks ago we had the privilege to shoot Jess and Mike on their Blessing. Jess coming from the US wanted a shot of them with some graffiti. Well that was a challenge! the local council had decided that graffiti was a no-no for the town, so what did they do? they covered every evidence of it up! what a nightmare!

So, what did we do? we shot the location like it had the graffiti in it.

and then using Photoshop with a little travel back to the early 90's when I used to do graffiti doodles and some masking I created some Graffiti from scratch..

hey presto, custom graffiti for the bride and groom.

50 Side Graphi Studio 30x20cm Album

Back in April last year we took the photographs for Sue and John Chaney. Sue wanted all the photographs we took to go into her album! but I explained that it just wasn't possible and she needed to narrow her choice down. So in the end after a lot of looking she slected 238 photographs to go in the book.
I managed to squeeze all the photographs in to a 50 sided 30x20cm book, 30 sides more than planned, but with so many photographs selected, any less and the album wouldn't have looked as good as it does. On top of the 50 sides, Sue also selected 8 sides that she wanted to be on the metallic stock. 16 13x10cm pocket books were also requested as gifts for the key people who were at the wedding.

The Boxes.

Sue and John think that this latest Album is the best they've seen to date. I have to agree with them, I'm very happy with the way this book has turned out. It contains over 600 separate elements that help create its look, all custom made for the album, unlike a lot of photographers who send their photographs into Graphi and get them to make up the pages using templates, all my albums are created from scratch and sent in a PDF format.
