Remembering Summer

Finding and photographing textures
Converting the textures for use in creative photographs
Still life photography
Instruction and demonstration on how I produce my textured images
1-2-1 help and guidance
There are a limited number of attendees and THERE ARE ONLY 2 PLACES LEFT !!

Thanks To All The People I have Worked With In 2016 (Part 1)

It’s getting near the end of the year so I thought I would put some pictures together to record what I have been producing in 2016.

These pictures are a small collection of straight images, creative doodlings and travel pictures.

I have used Photoshop and Corel Painter to produce the images below:-

PS I did a long more “stuff” in the second half of the year !!

This in an example (we have a different model for the workshop) of the type of image you can expect from the workshop – it gained a Silver Medal at the 123rd Toronto International Photographic Salon

Photographic Review Of 2016 January

As it’s coming towards the end of the year I thought I would look back at the lovely models I have had the pleasure of working with this year.

I love photographing models in costume and usually make (or adapt) the dresses/corsets myself – I also make the headdresses too.

I decided that I wanted to do a set of pictures based on A Queen theme (I’ve already “done” The Ice Queen) and made the costumes to compliment that theme.

It took me many weeks to finish the costumes and the first person to grace these outfits was the very lovely Stephanie Dubois

In January I also revisited Corel Painter and began producing pictures that had a very painterly feel.

The Guild Of Photographers

I joined The Guild Of Photographers in September and entered 3 pictures into their monthly comp.

Today I have found out that I have received 1 Silver and 2 Bronze Awards so I am very pleased with that especially as they are new images.

International Photography Awards 2016

Thought I would enter the International Photography Awards earlier this year for the first time.

This photographic competition has nothing to do with FIAP or BPE’s and obviously has entrants (both professional & none professional) from all around the world.

Yesterday I was contacted to say that 4 of my images had received Honorary Mentions (three in the portrait section and 1 in the fine art nude section) – I have to say I am thrilled.

Here are the images that were honoured :-
