Highdown Gardens

Highdown Gardens

I recently drove to Highdown Gardens in Worthing to capture some more beautiful flowers before autumn kicks in fully.

It is a beautiful location with such an interesting history of being a chalk pit. As well as that, it’s also free to enter and parking is right next to the gardens.

Here are some of my favourite photos from my visit:

Wedding Sneak Peek

Wedding Sneak Peek

It was lovely shooting Chloe and Josh’s Wedding last month, the first one of the year! I first met them a couple of years ago when I was looking for couples to photograph on Bognor Beach. I then shot their engagement photos, and now their wedding.

Here are some sneak peeks from the big day!

The Trundle

The Trundle

After seeing posts online about a field of poppies, I decided to drive down there to have a look. The Trundle is near Chichester, and has a car park right next to the field. As you approach, there seems to be an endless amount of poppies stretching for miles. It’s always amazing seeing sights like this on your doorstep.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the trip:

June Highlights

June Highlights

June was a great month for photography! I got a new extender for my lens for macro photography, did some headshot sessions, captured some beautiful wildflowers, and shot a wedding.

Lots of variation this month with lots of amazing subjects!

Here are some of my favourite photos taken throughout the month:

Community Beach Clean

Community Beach Clean

I live by the beach and I have wanted to join a beach clean for a while now. With the uncertainty around Covid-19, all of the beach cleans I could find had been cancelled.

I was introduced to The Million Mile Clean by Surfers Against Sewage and saw that there were no beach cleans scheduled for Bognor Regis. On their website, Surfers Against Sewage had a simple guide on how to host your own beach clean. They even provided the gloves and bags! I then contacted the council and was able to borrow litter pickers for the day.

Most regulations had eased and the beach clean was able to go ahead, more than 50 people turned up which was amazing! From a quick glance, the beach looked clean, but we ended up filling multiple bags of rubbish.

After the success of the first beach clean, I’d love to set up more events to get the local community together to look after our beach.

Wildflowers

Wildflowers

Each year in my local area, there is a patch of wildflowers which I go to photograph. It’s located between a car park and road, and really brings some colour to the area. It’s lovely for bees and humans alike, and I’d love to see more of this.
