I'm all for doing things a little bit different and getting creative at the last minute, but when you've been making plans, researching locations and getting everthing prepared for a very important photo shoot, nothing frustrates me more than the Great British weather letting us down!!!

And that's exactly what happened yesterday! I'd already planned a shoot day with award winning make up artist Anne Bowcock and the original idea was to take a couple of models on location, but when I was contacted by Kiera Weathers management and they told me that if we could arrange to do the photo shoot with her on the 19th May, then that would be perfect, all of our plans changed.

We discussed mood boards and Kiera was spoilt rotten with a fabulous collection of outfits from Mabel Doll.

On the day, we got off to a good start, it was a little overcast and all was looking good, but within 30 minutes the weather changed dramatically and the heavens opened, it meant that our amazing plans of a location shoot changed and it was time to set up the home studio, it's never ideal, but we do get some decent work done in it.

Kiera was in great spirit, we had the music on loud and we all just got on with the shoot.

I'm really pleased with the results and I'm looking forward to working on a few edits over the coming days.

I was really pleased to find out this morning, that one of the portrait I's taken of Maggsy last year had been given an FPI (Front Page Image) on the PurplePort website.

PurplePort is a modern and refreshing approach to the problem of finding people to work/collaborate with.

It doesn't matter whether you are an experienced photographer or a new model their mission is to provide you with one neat and easy to use service so you can find talented people to work with.

You can find out more about PurplePort and my FPI here - Take me to it!

Have a great weekend everyone!

This week, I finally got the chance to work with British Hair & Fashion model Megan Brunell, I'm guessing that a lot of you will know her from the TV show Britains Next Top Model (BNTM).

She was styled by the amazing Christopher Melia at Liverpool's Star Salon for this year 'Trend Vision' awards.

My time with Megan was brief, we had less than 30 minutes to set up and get the final images, Megans expertise really shone through and it enabled me to actually focus on the photography, she needed little to no direction and it was a breath of fresh air. I am very pleased with the overall results, even if they were a little rushed and look forward to sharing them with you in the next few weeks, I'm pretty sure the team at Star Salon are onto a winner this year...they certainly deserve it!

Hopefully I will get to work with Megan again soon, I have spoken to her about a personal project and she seemed keen to get involved..so watch this space!

Have a great week everyone!

If you're like me and you like to spend time in the evening just sitting at your desk, going through your images from the day and perhaps working on a bit of editing, then I'd really recommend you look at buying a set of candles from Smoulder Wolf.

The scents are marketed at us 'modern gents' (sorry ladies, don't shoot the messenger) and a set will cost about £35 with free UK delivery.

Have a look at there website, you'll be well impressed with the service and never again will you have to sit in your work space smelling of rose buds and elderflower.

One thing that I really enjoy, is sharing my passion for photography with like minded people and last night was no exception.

It was the second time that the South Manchester Camera Club (SMCC) had invited me to be a guest speaker and I've got to say, they really do have an amazing group of photographers, the standard of work is truly inspiring.

I'm hoping that in some small way the experiences I have shared with the SMCC will inspire them and that they can all go on to become photographers we can all admire and I hope to catch up with all of you again in the near future.

I wish you all every success and I thank the chair Graham Currey for all of his continued support with my own work.

If you're a keen photographer (and it makes no difference at what level you're at), then seek out your local camera club, they truly are a fantastic way to meet fellow photographers, get advice, share ideas and develop your skills.

Good luck!
