Alfie Entlebucher – dog portraits

I did a portrait shoot with a difference a couple of weeks back – for Alfie Entlebucher over at Alfie’s Blog. Alfie’s a dog who – with the help of his human Linda – runs a successful dog blog (over 3,000 views per month, not bad). The brief was to get a few shots of Alfie looking after his human and keeping her in check, for his about page and to use in posts as and when.

We got some good September weather and headed out to the park with Alfie’s favourite toys. He’s a really bouncy one year old, born to herd, and doesn’t stay still for a moment. Keeping him in frame long enough to capture him interacting with Linda was the biggest challenge! A fun afternoon, and got some nice shots out of it.



You can see more pictures from the shoot over on Alfie’s “about” page.

Jenny – portrait shoot

Jenny is an artist and software engineer. Like many people she’s not a great fan of having her photo taken. She is, however, a huge fan of tea – in all its wonderful varieties. At first she clearly felt a little awkward in front of the camera. One mug of rhubarb and cream later though the atmosphere was set, Jenny was relaxed and from there we got some great shots. Jenny was really pleased, so job done. I don’t drink it myself, but I must concede that there’s a lot to be said for the great British cuppa.


Wille and the Bandits – gig photos

Wille and the Bandits played the 12 Bar Club last week and I was there to capture their set. Will Edwards is an awesome slide guitarist so its always a pleasure to see him play. The 12 Bar is fun to shoot in too, a tiny venue where no-one ever seems to be more than 10 feet from the stage. Click on the photos to open ‘em up big.
