As is now customary at this time of year, I like to take a look at back at all the photo fun I’ve had during the year, but more importantly, to take a moment to thank everyone who has been part of it too.
I find it almost impossible to keep the numbers down, so this year, to do the year justice, I’m sharing the images that will make it into my printed book for 2017 and I’m going to try and make a slideshow, so watch out for that! I’ve tried to keeping the words to a minimum this year, but here are my highlights
January – Rotterdam & the Peter Lindbergh exhibition with great friends
February – Rome for the 6 Nations with dear friends, even the wet weather won’t stop this photographer. Welshot Lighting Weekend #1 with Nadine & Rocky.
April – Walter’s Wardrobe with Jen Brook, the WW team, Nicky, Jodie, Victoria & Kamila at Weston Park. A play date with Rachel, Ryan and Julene. Record Store Day 2017.
May – analogue photography for the very first time with Rachel of Little Vintage Photography, absolutely won’t be the last!
June – the loveliest of weddings in Cyprus helping friends Claire and Jason capture their big day. Dad Edwards opened his beautiful garden once again to the gardening club. Leah & Rachel were sassy models at a Welshot Academy Evening in Chester. My first meeting with Dylan and the Dolbadarn Film Horse Team.
July – my second meeting with Dylan, Amie, Molly, Mark and Sophie!
August – The big Cat Sanctuary in Kent with Gaynor, definitely going to do this one again! Photo-fun with Sonia, Luisa, Rob, Sharon, Megan & Rachel; a visit to Bodnant Gardens and a fun afternoon with lovely Georgia.
September – a workshop with Fuji X photographer, Elke Vogelsang photographing dogs. Welshot Lighting Weekend #2 with Leah, Rachel & Ryan. A creative shoot with Rachel on Hope Mountain & The Good Life Experience Festival with Gaynor and Phil. Pembrokeshire – we only scratched the surface, a return visit on the cards.
October – Final Dolbadarn Film Horses event for this year. A cheeky weekend in Berlin with great friends Tim & Gail for another photo exhibition, Helmut Newton.
November – a workshop with Alex Bather and Tiffany. I got my hands on the Fuji GFX, amazing camera. Headshots and a lifestyle shoot on the loveliest of Autumn days with Amelia, Danielle, Emese and Georgia. The final full-day Welshot event of the year – Poldark with Shelby, Andrea, Sophie and Glenn. Costumes as always by the amazing Paula of Chester Costume House.
December – I had to capture the first snow of the season. My final photoshoot of the year at Cambrian Photography with Rachel.
I think (hope) I’ve given everyone an honourable mention, my thanks to each of you for your friendship and support throughout 2017. I hope we can do it all again in 2018!
Until next time…
