and so I returned to work this week feeling pretty fabulous and completely refreshed, of course it's always with a heavy heart I send the kids back to school but it does sort of feel like a new year for me too, lots of exciting plans in the works both professionally and personally and I hope that you'll stay round and join me on my adventures.
So first on todays list of things to tell you, I met these lovely people above for a Jack Vettriano inspired shoot down on the beach at Tynemouth, this is just one of many shots which I'm truly chuffed with.
On Tuesday I spoke at a seminar on "Memory Keeping and Shooting your Kids" and just want to thank everyone who came along on the evening, I really enjoyed sharing some of my favourite kids photos with you and chatting with a really friendly audience.
This autumn "Shoot Your Kids" kicks off, it's a half day course to help parents get the most out of their cameras so they can capture great photos of their kids, there'll be two seperate courses, 1 for parents with any camera or mobile phone and a slightly more advanced one for those parents with DSLR's and prices are likely to be in the region of £45 per person which will include an hour in a gorgeous quirky room with presentation and refreshments and then 2 hours of practical on location tips and I'm also promising to photograph every parent who brings their child along, and thats really the joy of this, it's a great thing to bring the kids too!
The course will only be for a maximum of 5 parents per session to make sure that I can spend lots of time helping and advising and having fun and I do expect that it will sell out quite quickly
To register your inital interest (and at this point it's just that, no commitment required at this point) just drop and email to email@example.com and tell me which one you are most interested in.
Next week I'll be announcing a special Christmas Photoshoot package, these are always popular and fill my diary from October - February so keep a look out because I'd hate for people to miss out.
