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.
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:
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.
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.
So today is world bee day, a day of celebrating these amazing insects which do so much for the planet. I love photographing bees and try to get as close as possible without disturbing them. I’ve recently bought an extender for my macro lens and look forward to it arriving so I can try it out! Here are some bee photos I took last year during the summer, when they were out in an abundance.
April was a great month, I begun to get out a bit more and explore new places as restrictions eased. I also began shooting headshots again which is one of my favourite things to do. As well as photography, I organised a beach clean which is taking place in June on Bognor Beach.
It’s been a varied month, and I began to feel like things were becoming more normal as time went.
Here are some of my favourite photos I took throughout the month:
