Ojos de cielo

One of my favourite subjects.. this little girl has something about her... being the youngest of three girls could have something to do with it.. I always felt a special rapport when photographing her... thanks to her Mummy and Daddy!

Granny´s eyes

This is my grandmother. She´s 100 years old. I took this photo of her yesterday when I went to visit her in the old folk´s home she´s been in for the last couple of years. She´s the best bridge player there. She can´t read the newspaper because of her eyesight but is up to date on current affairs. She remembers every birthday and telephones us on the day. She´s an inspiration.

Happy Customer

Thank you to Max and Amelia´s parents for giving me the opportunity to photograph their children. I am posting a photograph showing the end result. We chose a series of photographs for each child and had them framed together, around a portrait in the centre of each frame... please take a look :)

Balancing ambient light with flash

I like the effect of balancing ambient light with fill in flash and this is an example I am particularly proud of.... :) ...

I learnt this technique by following the photographer Nick Turpin´s work very closely as he is a bit of a genius at creating mood by manipulating and balancing ambient light with flash.
