Ohhhhh err Mrs !!

Well Monday this week I had the most fantastic shoot with Helen :-) she had booked a "cheeky" shoot at my studio as a treat for her Birthday.

Think im gunna call it "Cheeky Boudouir" :-) ........ helen brought along a gang to watch as she posed like a model whos been in front of the camera more times than posh spice !! Helen had even brought along some material we could use AND a bottle of bubbly (my type of girl!!)

Getting towards the end of the session Helen wanted to pay a visit to the toilet ...... I started to take a look at some of the images we had taken during the session and the out of the toilet comes Helen, complete with mop and mop bucket ........ well that was it we just had to get a shot or two dispite all the jokes and laughing .......... Helen you looked beautiful ..... in fact stunning ....... and by the way how much would you charge for youe cleaning services ?? :-)

Happy shooting all

Warren "Whats your favourite image" ?

Im asked this question quite a lot and to be honest with you the answer is not what most people expect. I have thousands of images on my ever expanding collection of hard drives ranging from landscapes to glamour with some great looking models but my favourite images are the ones not many people see.

I have loads of images not taken in my studio, not posed, not thought of before the shot was taken, of Adam (my son), images of my mum who I only recently lost, images of my wife Patsy who was taken from Adam and me in Oct 2009 by cancer, images of friends, images from my childhood down West Bank, images from hoildays and BB camp. Most of these photographs have bits of legs missing, loads of space aorund the subject, the focus may not be spot on and you my see objects sticking out of peoples heads.

I'm basicly the same as everyone else, the images I treasure the most are not the images I take after setting up studio lights metering, posing the model, making sure the make up looks good making sure the lighting is spot on, no it's the the images that bring back happy times and although I do sometimes feel sad when looking at them, I am also remineded of how very very lucky I am to have had such a great time with such great people and friends.

My life is still very very good now, Im doing what I love the most, meeting loads of great people and basicly enjoying my time. Please enjoy your life to the full and live for the day :-)

Now here's some of my recent work please feel free to comment :-)

Happy shooting :-)
