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.

New Macro Photography

New Macro Photography

I love macro photography, and capturing tiny details of plants and insects. I always find that it’s important to take photos for fun, as well as photography for work.

Recently, I bought an extender for my macro lens. This means I can get even closer to my subjects, and capture even more detail.

It will take time to get used to it but I’m loving the results already!

May Highlights

May Highlights

During the month of May, I began shooting more products and portraits for businesses. I also did my first car photoshoot which was a great experience.

Towards the end of May, I went camping with friends in Cheddar and switched off for a bit to enjoy nature.

Here are some highlights from this month:

World Bee Day

World Bee Day

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 Highlights

April Highlights

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.
