Kids – Don’t you just love em! Photographing them however can be somewhat of a challenge. Having three girls of my own has taught me a little how to capture their attention even if it is just for a short time. The worst bit, if you have girls, is having to pay for their weddings and the hardest thing of all is parting with money to another wedding photographer! I do enjoy photographing children but because of what goes on in this world of ours it is very important to do this with Parents present. The Parents can play their part though, acting the fool, holding the sun shades, holding your gear. Whatever gets the job done. This short set of photographs was taken in midday sun so contrasts and shadows were high. Hope you like the results.

Occasionally is does you good to have a random blog to catch up on some of the individual shoots one has been involved in. So on Sunday night we went with a crowd of friends to a Jazz night at Zefferellis in Ambleside. It was a very pleasant night and good to catch up on conversation. As expected the room was quite dark so I thought I would try out the low light capabilities of my camera by not taking a flash and hand holding every photograph. My favourite was the black and white of the saxophone player so I have included it for your comments. The tiger shot is of two Amur cubs play fighting whilst a third walks by. There are only a few of these tigers left mainly in the Russian forest. The dalmatian puppy is Bodger who is now two years old. At weekend I visited Barton Grange Garden Centre, well my family did whilst I took myself off down the canal whereupon I came across a little family of ducklings and they were so cute I thought you might like to see them as well. Whilst on the subject of birds I am off on a trip to the Farne Islands later this month to photograph sea birds and in particular nesting Puffins so watch out for some photographs of my exploits towards the end of May.
