A photo journal

A new year is almost upon us

Well 2011 is almost upon us. I guess it’s time to reflect on 2010. How was it for you? Whatever your answer, good or bad, I sincerely hope that 2011 is better. From a photographic perspective my year has been pretty good though quiet-ish in the last month or so due to other things needing my attention. I am already looking forward to a number of projects next year and will be working with some amazing people. Some for the first time, others for the second, third or more.

Below is a short gallery of some of this years work, I hope you enjoy.

A special thank you

Whilst I cannot thank enough, those models that posed in the cold and mud for the Macmillan Charity Calendar, a special thank you must also be extended to three photographers.

Ste Jones – Kitaeru Photography

Ste travelled that morning all the way from Wigan to help out on the shoot and he done a sterling job. His Facebook page can be found here and I urge you to take a look at his work.

James Rose – Roziekins Photography

James is a new photographer in professional terms. He is also a very experienced model. He was honoured to be asked to help out on the shoot and we were honoured to have his help. His Facebook page can be found here and his Model Mayhem photographer portfolio can be seen here.

Richard Rollinson – Zero72 Photography

Richard was brought onboard late in the day to come and help out with behind the scenes shooting and general bit and pieces and he is a true star. The only reason none of his images made the final calendar is due to people looking at another photographer and suchlike. I know a club that was at the shoot are very appreciative of his efforts with their vehicles and I know myself and many others are appreciative of his taxi skills during the shoot.

A special mention goes to Richard as just after taking the Christmas shot in the montage below, he slipped and severely damaged his ankle, so much so, it’s still not fully recovered. His Facebook page can be seen here.

It was my pleasure to work with these gentlemen and they will have the first invites to the next charity shoot I am involved with. They all gave selflessly as did the models.

Other photographic mentions must go to Simon Ward-Hastelow, Mike Fox and Andy Watson.

Another blatant sales pitch

I know, two charity pitches in a day. Well, a stunning model and friend of mine, Gypsy Rhodes, who appears in the Macmillan calendar as in the earlier post, and also in the gallery image in the sliders at the top of this page, has again produced a charity calendar purely of new images of her. The proceeds of which go to aid the Sophie Lancaster Foundation which is a very good cause. Sophie, if you don’t already know was beaten to death defending her boyfriend in an attack in 2007, purely for looking alternative. Please visit the site and buy a second calendar (as you have already bought the Macmillan/Team Chaos one).
