Crispy and fresh yet warm morning at Sywell Country park and Anna arrived with the usual positive vibe and openness to ideas amid suggesting a number of her own. Her charm and wit was perfect accompaniment to a walk around the park whilst taking pictures.
Anna is a life couch, psychologist, a social media activist and I am extremely pleased our paths crossed. Her recent idea of offering families photo shoots as part of personal development and bonding filled me with great pleasure. Even more so that we’ve decided to collaborate on future projects! Best things come from collaborations. I certainly do look forward to what’s next and if you are too please check Anna’s profile here to learn about her sessions, work and ideas.
It’s official, the days deprived of light by 7pm and eyes ready to rest shortly after 8. Nevertheless the build up to the festive season is by far my favourite. With its recollective thoughts, a look back at the summer months, appreciation of what’s around here and now and the thoughts of the future. I look at kids and can’t help but to think the world is a good place. So much love. So much warmth. So much passion. And everything is suddenly better.
Next stop, Halloween! And we can’t wait already to dig into those pumpkins!
Shooting with Fuji X camera system has been a joy ever since I tried the x100, a camera flawed by its slow autofocus, true, yet rewarding in every other way. Sharp, clean and extremely pleasing tonality of the files have been a joy to look at and use. Then came the firmware updates. And more updates, and even more and by the time we knew it the system has been reliable, speedy, consistent yet not sacrificing its best areas.
Things get better though. The files being so versatile and packing in great dynamic range, one can easily push them to the new limits. And then comes the printing! The photographs produced by the system have been one of my favourites ever taken and, although shooting alongside Canon flagships, my heart is with the Fuji. Currently using the X Pro 2 conveniently during assignments as well as travel and street I cannot recommend it more. And that’s before you start using the fantastic glass from Fujinon.
I am extremely honoured and thankful to FujiLove who published my second feature on how to edit files from the x cameras. You can read the article here.
Happy shooting! And happy editing!
When a family of ten, plus a dog, feels more like four, you know you’re in for something good!
Kirsty decided to get everyone together for her dad’s birthday and present him a gift of a family shoot. We chose Sywell Country Park, where we popped into one another once when out and about with kids. Spoiled by a gorgeous morning light, positive vibes and quite a few laughs we strolled around exploring, laughing, enjoying life, the family enjoying themselves and oh, yes, right, we did take a few pictures too! :)
Albums coming soon!
Anna started the session so lightly that you instantly felt welcome, understood and appreciated. Each and everyone in the group opened naturally and unfolded whilst she provided gentle prompts and explanations to relationships-related issues. She listened. Like there was only two of them in the world and always related her response in ways that made them feel happier.
I had the pleasure of documenting Anna Bialous-Griffith’s “Developing Happiness in Relationships” sessions recently and could not have felt more fulfilled when done. I highly recommend you check her profile here should you require advice in psychology, relationships, counselling and more.
