Another special weekend in
Italy photographed mostly for private viewing. Here are some photos of the black tie dinner on the Saturday night. There’s nothing quite like the way that the Italians lay up tables for formal meals.
The unpredictable weather has played havoc with my outdoor shooting schedule this week so I have spent a bit of time editing some of my underwater photos from the trip to Bequia six weeks ago. The camera and system were new for the trip, so it took me a while to get the hang of it and the viz could have been better, but overall I’m pleased with the results. More on my FB page.
I’m always so busy September through to the new year, and never seem to have time to blog, although my FB page does get updated with the odd thing or two…anyway, here’s some photos of a fantastic Queensberry album that the client wasn’t expecting until January, but which left the studio on Christmas Eve and was delivered by my octogenarian parents on their way to my sister’s! That’s customer service for you!
Although it’s a small part of what I do I am happy to help out my networking contacts with head shots for their FB, Linked In and Blog pages. Recently I took some photos of Leo, owner of the aptly named ROAR accounting www.roaraccounting.co.uk She isn’t your ordinary sort of accountant and after doing a few standard shots – business like, professional, friendly, sort of person I’d like to do business with etc I suggested a different take….. she loved them, and they exist as a series to show her real personality.

Cheese Cakes make a wonderful alternative to traditional wedding cakes, and they are an excellent addition to the menu, particularly if guests get a little peckish later in the evening.
I saw the first one about eight years ago and since then there have been many variations on the theme. Today I met with Emma Dandy of La Cremerie , who specialises in fabulous cheese wedding cakes. She offers over 100 cheeses to choose from for a cake and bases her recommendation on the results of a tasting meeting held with the Bride and Groom. Many of her cheeses are sourced from Neal’s Yard Dairy and she guarantees that they will be in perfect eating condition when they arrive with you.
She is based near me in Hertfordshire but supplies cheese all over the UK by courier.
