Product photography and portraits

Well up until the last post (just a few seconds ago) I didn’t label anything, what effect has this had on my Blog, well no one can see it!
So from now on it's Labels all the way, oh and some more up to date shots!
I cover all sorts of photography from weddings, through to studio work, location photography and can even offer on site print facilities!
Why don't I specialise, well because I love photography, and it can be a wedding or a wedding ring, a magazine shot or something creative, I just love the challenge.
Many advocate specialisation but ask yourself is that to earn more money or to become a specialist? I would say the later, why do I say this? In many walks of life it seems to be the specialist who takes things for granted and makes the mistakes, the person who is capable but who has to attempt something they don’t do all the time is surely going to pay far more attention to detail?
Obviously this scenario won’t work with an open heart surgeon  but you get the idea!
For me being a freelance photographer in Kent allows me the luxury of shooting wedding photography in Kent and London and then doing some product photography and event photography this variation always keeps me on my toes and all styles work together when shoot

Teaching Photography

Well what I nice morning I have had, I have been to the studio and had 7 students and the head of photography from Hillview Performing arts school in for photographic tuition.

the time flew! and I am sure the students got something out of it, we did a couple of different lighting styles, one high key one with black background and using a snoot, I wont say who but one of the students stood out, I don't know who it was it was only when looking at the shots after wards they had taken a different take on it to most, however they all show great interest and I look forward to the next time
