Feel free To Share If You know Anyone With A Young Family Monday I was fortunate enough to spend a fantastic few hours with little princess Amelia Faith and her brilliant mum and dad Natalie Suggitt and Craig Suggitt. Without doubt she is a beautiful baby and was an absolute star. I tend to find that patience is the key with children's photography especially when they are not your own and you need several little tricks to keep them entertained and focussed, I have a lens mate squeaky that helps from time to time. I'll be doing more shoots with Amelia as she grows up into a beautiful young lady. If you know someone with a young family that would like a home shoot with us, PM us, we only use the very best lighting equipment, back drops and props plus we are DBS checked FULLY insured and QUALIFIED. We will travel nationally for our clients and all our work is guaranteed whether it be portrait, wedding, commercial product etc, we are also CAA qualified aerial pilots. PM me with your requirements and we'll respond ASAP Adrian Please not these images are digitally watermarked and traceable so please do not copy or use without permission.
Ross Castle Portrait - A beautiful spring day in Ireland
Quick trip back to Tin Mill last Friday, almost forgot where it was too, thanks to Gordon Gibbons for reminding me, going to fire the inspire up there this week too, saves going up to my waist in it and I seem to remember last time I was there I drank a pint or 2 of the water....Mountain rescue stuff
Workshops. I have been on quite a few myself as I feel it's important we keep learning and striving to get better at our craft. I do however have one little bugbear and this has happened on every single workshop. The instructor spends more time doing their own shots than teaching, in other words you are paying for their outing. On my workshops my camera is setup and 1 shot is taken as reference for those attending, this way they get my full attention, see the same equipment being used as they have and more importantly gain knowledge to take forward. Hope that make sense Mark Ashworth, Daniel Cooper and Chris Phillips This reference shot from yesterday was taken in the rain and was covered with spray from Ogwen water but with 5 mins processing and a little savvy has turned out pretty good, what do you think guys, looking forward to seeing your efforts. Workshops run in all weathers in several locations, check them out here or email me email@example.com for more info. The pace is very gentle and informative with as much humour and time given to each persons needs. http://www.adrianashworth.co.uk/workshops/
Well the weekend is here at last, just getting the van loaded ready for tomorrows workshop with Chris Phillips, Daniel Cooper and Mark Ashworth, early start guys 6:30 so get some sleep tonight. The Welsh weather Gods look to be smiling on us so far with rain very early then cloud and sunshine perfect for us. Mystery tour bluebell shoot with Chris Phillips this afternoon, he's driving and hasn't a clue where I'm taking him, wonder if he'll be ok blindfolded driving? Todays image from Anglesey, bit of a sun halo going on in the distance, can't wait to be back there. have a great weekend all Adrian
Ross Castle - Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland A beautiful place to visit especially if the weather plays fair as it did with tis visit. Met a fabulous local photographer who gave me some great advise on local attractions including waterfalls and ruins. I'm a firm believer in always learning and striving to make the next shot better than the last, hope Ive accomplished it...sales will tell. The Irish images may not get a section of their own so sales will be by email only at this stage, thanks Adrian
Please Share This shot took a hell of a lot more than it looks, not only was it thunder and lightning with hail to the left it was a seasonal high tide with gale force winds to the right. Add a complete idiot with a camera in the middle and hey presto you get this shot, must say it was a pretty nervous position to be in as I knew I had a mile walk back across limestone pavement in the hailstorm and dark carrying all my kit too. Well worth it I reckon
Feel Free To Share You'll Be Helping Me Full Story Here http://www.adrianashworth.co.uk/2016/04/dun-chaoin-pier-dunquin-ireland/ Finally back from our Ireland trip and it didn't disappoint apart from the odd heavy rain and gale force winds but that's what you expect from the emerald isle isn't it? Loads of images to post so I'll start with one of my fave places Dunquin Pier or (Dún Chaoin) as it's pronounced and sign posted locally which means Caon's stronghold. Bit from Wiki below. There is dramatic cliff scenery, with a view of the Blasket Islands, where Peig Sayers lived. A museum in the village tells the story of the Blaskets and the lives of the people who lived there including the well-known writers of the island, which includes Sayers, Tomás Ó Criomhthain, and Muiris Ó Súilleabháin. In 1588, when the Spanish Armada returned via Ireland many ships sought shelter in the Blasket Sound — the area between Dún Chaoin and the Islands — and some were wrecked there. A memorial stands on the cliffs overlooking the site. Scenes from the 1970 film Ryan's Daughter were shot at Coumineole Beach and Ceathrú (Caharhoo) in Dún Chaoin. The town's then-struggling economy was largely revived by the production of the film. It was in Kruger's bar in Dunquin that CAMRA was founded in 1971. I had been to the site earlier in the day and did some test shots handheld to get a real feel for the place, it's quite a height and you can see where the cliff top is eroding badly and is certainly dangerous. Extra care is needed where the final shot was taken as you can easily fall from three sides and I had my tripod tied down to a peg in case it slipped and fell. I turned up a good hour early for this sunset shot primarily to prevent anyone else from taking the prime spot, I know it's not good sportsmanship but I have come a long way to get this shot and with the conditions being perfect I wasn't going to miss it for anything, as it happens only a couple of people came and went down the track and back up again then went away before sunset so mission accomplished I had the whole vista to myself. Kit used Canon 1DX EF16-35mm f/2.8L USM 19mm F18 for 3.2s .6 ND glass Reverse grad Singh Ray UFO Doctor Doctor on my headset (always helps) Loads more to follow though I'll probably space them out as I have a fairly heavy work load on now plus a training schedule to maintain.

Well it's that time of year and we have our first wedding of the season tomorrow with the lovely Rebecca and Dave at Darfield Church followed by reception at Tankersely Manor. Me and Chris just headed up to the church to get a front cover shot as the weather is forecast quite poor. Just going that extra bit further for our clients to ensure the days images are perfect for them and they have one less thing to worry about.
