Kirsty Heslewood

What can I say about Miss K as I call her…Miss Herts, Miss England, Miss United Kingdom, Miss World Finalist, successful model …always great to have a day with Kirsty as I’ve know her for about 3 years now and she has’nt changed a bit, still the wonderful person I met 3 years ago at the Miss Herts auditions and was a complete role model as Miss England and the money she has raised for the Variety Childrens charit has been amazing.

More great times ahead I’m sure for Kirsty..xx





Larry Miller & Alan Johnson – Rock Legends

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to meet Alan Johnson at a photosession and then invited to a gig where he played on stage with Larry Miller Blues band..what a night..Gibson’s and Tele’s everywhere..volume up to 11 and rock and roll.

Xander and the Keys

One of my favorite bands at the moment and has been a pleasure being in the studio with them and at some live gigs taking photo’s , watching these guys create some amazing songs from just a few guitar riffs and the energy on stage is awesome…a band to watch out for next year and I’m really looking forward to documenting their year.

Kev & Racheal ..Day Trip to Hampshire

Back in August Kev and Racheal came dow to visit on one of my photo tutorial days, camera’s and lenses at the ready….

First thing I did was use some coffee jars and some shade and some sunlight..sure they’ll explain..

After some theory and some practice..down to Hengistbury Head..loads to photograph ..sand, beach huts etc..

Since then Kev and Racheal have gone back to Birmingham and have really got a passion now for photography after the one day they had with me..maybe it was me , I’m not sure..but I know they love it now..


And Finally…

Roseanna Liddiard

Since I met Roseanna about 18 months ago when she had just turned 17, I saw something in her that was quite unique.

Upon our first photosession 18 months ago Roseanna got selected by Base Models in London and since then I have been working with Roseanna on various shoots through out the year, I could post hundreds..cause there are hundreds of amazing images that we have done together and it’s been a privelage to see Roseanna grow in confidence and even our day trip to London to all the Top Modelling agencies was fun and she has given me so much inspiration behind the camera as she is not afraid to try new things and is probably one of the most natural people I have photographed in a while.

2015 gonna be a great year for you Roseanna and thanks again.
