The October '11 Round Up

Darting around the country on both personal and commissioned shoots it's difficult to blog about every photograph I take. I usually tweet/facebook about random goings on, aswell as trying to keep up with uploads to FlickR and 500PX, however for those who don't follow me there i'll be doing a monthly round up of what's happened recently... October saw the Canon Pro Solutions Show take place in Islington, which is a great way to get hands on with all the latest product launches. Racking up the mileage this month, 3 of the 4 weekends have been spent down in Dorset and Somerset covering two weddings and a school photography session. That session meant we shot 26 family portrait sessions, retouched over 1300 images and turned them around for client viewing all within 48 hours!

British Engineering and the glorious McLaren MP4-12C Supercar in Volcano Orange. Quite literally a dream car, and whilst i've not had the opportunity for a up-close and personal photoshoot I managed to grab a quick picture at Snetterton Race Circuit back in August whilst crowds gathered round. Naturally, shot inside a race paddock with peering eyes all around it was never going to be a standout shot resulting in quite possibly my heaviest photoshop to date. I absolutely love this car and thus wanted to make the best image possible out of what I had. A composite of different layers (one for the sky, the floor, reflections in the bodywork of the car etc) we have our final image. Perhaps one day i'll be lucky enough to shoot one of these cars:

I've been fortunate enough to travel to different destinations abroad this year, and my love of travel photography is ever increasing. Shortly i'll be looking to make a seperate section on my website and facebook fan page for various travel related antics. This shot is from Mallorca, and it's northern most peninsula. A view of Punta De La Nau taken from the Mirador Des Colomers, absolutely breathtaking!

Most people will have heard of Stourhead, and it's idyllic landscape gardens. As such this is a very popular shot, however after a hectic weekend covering a wedding in Dorset we headed to Stourhead in Wiltshire to relax in it's Autumnal bliss. Unfortunately a relatively overcast and grey day, although at least it didn't rain!
