Storm Over Sourton

There are certain days while out driving the car that I know I’m going to get sidetracked by a view or a subject I just simply can’t pass up.

It was while on location last week that the weather turned rather stormy just as I was travelling through a  rather impressive landscape in Devon.

I had completed one assignment and travelling to another when I noticed heavy rain approaching this valley. Fortunately, I had time to spare (not that that would have probably stopped me) so I quickly found a spot to pull in and grab my camera from the boot of the car.

I can work very quickly when needed and I quickly composed and captured several variations before losing the drama.

Corporate London To The South Hams, The Contrast Of A Photographic Week

You can never say this industry is boring, frustrating & unpredictable at times yes,but never boring.
It’s been a very manic few weeks seeing me on location in Scotland,Denmark and a couple of jobs in London.
This week made me realise once again just how no two days or two jobs are ever the same and why I love what I do.
Monday morning saw me in the heart of central London for an early morning corporate portrait shoot in some very modern and swanky offices.
This was followed a couple of days later when I found myself on route to the beautiful South Hams in Devon shooting a Lighthouse for a recent new client.
The contrast in the assignments & the locations was simply chalk & cheese.
The London assignment was in the heart of the city with tall modern office buildings and as you might expect pretty full on but also quite a buzz.
The Devon shoot was also a pretty busy day however the location was simply mesmerising and you could not work for long without taking a moment to once again appreciate the stunning coastline views from our elevated clifftop location.
These kind of days makes me realise how lucky I am (due to many years ongoing hard work !) to get to visit such great places and meet so many interesting people because of the camera.
More images will follow in the coming weeks but for now here are a few iPhone snaps from both shoots and a little video.
Have a great weekend everyone….

A precarious viewpoint !

 

September Sunshine In Devon

A couple of weeks ago I found myself showing my work at Bray Leino (see post Beautiful Bray Leino ) down in deepest Devon.

This week I was lucky enough to be shooting for them in a couple of locations over two days in Devon and making most of the glorious September sun for a few frames.

Beautiful Bray Leino

Today I had a very enjoyable Wednesday morning at a meeting in the slightly grey but beautiful Devon countryside with the rather nice creatives at Bray Leino.

I’ve visited several times over the last 20 years or so and I never fail to be impressed by their stunning offices and it’s rural location.

 

A Few iPhone Snaps

Boats At Beer

Here are a couple of snaps I captured over the weekend while visiting Beer in Devon with friends.

Despite the very bright and quite harsh summer light the location looked too good to not shoot.

As I mentioned last week in a previous post there is never any bad light it just depends what you want to capture.
