Adrian Edmondson and his band The Bad Shepherds play Mr Kyps - Dorset Event Photography by Robert Whetton

by Robert Whetton 28. August 2009 14:36

Well, what a Saturday I had, first getting burnt to a crisp on Bournemouth beach while photographing the Free Air Show (I was applying sun cream every hourish, and still managed to get frazzled - go figure)

So after the show was over, and I finally managed to squeeze out of Bournemouth through the back roads past all the 380,000 other people who had also visited Bournemouth for the show. I just about had enough time to grab something to eat and drink while backing up the shots from the day.

Then it was onto my favourite gig venue Mr Kyps to take photographs of The Bad Shepherds, fronted by star of The Young Ones and Bottom, Adrian Edmondson. Lady Winwards Maggot were supporting (shots to come), and as always put on a great show. The Bad Shepherds were pretty damn good, I wasn't expecting much, but I think they surprised everyone that night.

Onwards with the photo action!

Johanna Stahr - Location Portrait Shoot, Bournemouth, Dorset Portrait Photographer Robert Whetton

by Robert Whetton 18. August 2009 22:32

 

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to tag along with Fiona Anderson when she shot Johanna, a local talented singer and song writer, check out her Myspace. I took a few shots for her but the weather didn't hold and the rain came in..

 

I wasn't bowled over with the shots I had captured that afternoon, so arranged to get Johanna out for a night shoot at a local multi-story car park. Before we knew it 2 hours had passed, but we came away with some amazing shots.

While shooting these shots, the local skate kids where riding their boards from the top of the multistory to the bottom, the last time they past us they tried a couple of tricks, and failed. We didn't see them again that night..

Photograph Selection for Jessops UK

by Robert Whetton 14. August 2009 18:27
Ok, so I've not been blogging recently.. been a little tied up with stuff here and there. I was going to blog last week about my cousins who came down to visit with their families, we had a blast, I took a few photographs.. and I will blog about that after this blog!

I went with a friend on Wednesday afternoon to Jessops, to help them select a shoot through umbrella for their new wireless flash. So we're in there looking through the catalogue for the right stuff, when the Manager of the store says hi to Jules and asks if she still has the frog and ear shot from facebook as she wants to replace the posters from head office with ones from the local photographers in the area. Julie points to me and says this is the man you want to get photographs from. I handed her my card, and she was "OOOOH you're Robert Whetton!". I was quite shocked that she knew who I was, I don't really go into Jessops all that much..

Anyway she asked if we could supply A1 sized photographs (23.4 × 33.1in) so I've looked through my selection of portriat orientated shots and come up with this selection.
