CD Cover and a glorious wedding in Macc...







Busy couple of weeks considering I was supposed to be having a holiday and overseeing my new kitchen being installed!


I sold a print from the exhibition at the Burslem School of Art which lead to shooting the CD cover for international DJ Andy Moor's new album (they probably don't call them albums but what would I know)... it's funny how things link together. It was a quick job which needed to be turned around in about 6 hours so I could get the artwork to the Estonian Digital Artist (the photo above shows my shot and his subsequent work).


I also shot a couple of wedding in Alderley Edge and Macclesfield - both were blessed with great weather which is a miracle against the odds for this summer. Both had a lovely Bride and Groom who were really interested in getting some interesting shots and made the whole day a pleasure for them and me.


I shall try to take a bit of time now and concentrate on all things relaxing - as soon as I have designed and sent to the printers the wedding albums fron June!

Adam & Phil's Wedding

I attended a Civil Union this afternoon in Bolton. I lovely couple - Adam and Phil - had their service at The Holiday Inn at the Bolton Centre. It has a converted Church as the function room which creates a great backdrop to the Civil Ceremony - family and friends gathered for the brief service and it had just the right amount of camp... masks, feathers, musicals and glitter.
Watch the brief photovideo to get an idea of the day.

Exhibition, Facebook and New Websites

Not too much to report this week, it's been fair steady on the photography front and I've been trying not to convince myself that the sniffly cold and sneezing that won't go away is Swine Flu... it's not, I'm sure.... is it?
Anyway, I've got some prints to enter in a Stoke photo exhibition which I shall submit on Wednesday. Watch this space for further exhibition detalis.
I've set up a budget wedding photography side to my business - I want to give value for money and a very modern feel so WeddingEdge was born. It's strapline:
Unlimited Time, Unlimited, Photos, Unlimited Imagination, One Price.
I figure that if I present a print and photo only option (so no album) the time saved can be passed on and a reasonable deal for both photographer and customer should be the result. PLUS I want to shoot more contemporary style and use fashion lighting and shooting techniques - more fun for everyone! So this resulted in the new website - www.weddingedge.co.uk.
Please check it out.
More next week....
