2023 PICTURES

Welcome to my 2023 Pictures diary. I use this page as my incentive to get out with my camera as much as possible. Some of these pictures will be used for competitions with either the Guild of photographers or Photocrowd. Some will be paid jobs that I do through out the year.

The main thing I like to show is that I love taking photographs and I hope I can take as many of you with me as possible.

THE PHOTO DIARY

TAKE A LOOK AT 2022

This is my year in pictures in 2022.  A diary of every time I have gone out with my camera in 2022. I have been taking photographs since my early teens. Since the beginning I love how photographs portrays the world in an instant. It is a constant reminder of what you were doing that day. For me, personally, photography has been my soul mate and my friend and I love the buzz after getting a good picture. It is also a journey as photography is about learning new techniques and new ways and that is why I am doing this constant changing blog. It is a reminder of what I took on a certain day but also an incentive to get out more and enjoy taking more pictures.

We looked long and hard to find the right person to photograph our wedding day and Charles was the perfect choice. He was a pleasure to work with, meeting us for a lovely pre-wedding shoot, helping us to plan everything out in the run-up to the big day and then providing us with a beautifully presented final set of photos once we returned from honeymoon. On the day itself he put us at ease right from the start, blending in seamlessly with our guests and other suppliers. We were really impressed at the way he worked with the bridesmaids and ushers to guide us all smoothly and very efficiently through the organised group photos but were also so pleased with his gorgeous candid shots of some really lovely moments during the day. Thank you Charles, we will treasure these photos for a long time to come!

Last 'Normal' photo

This is the last normal photo on my camera before lockdown. Being a photographer I take a lot of photos of my boys. The poor devils! They have lived with me wanting to take pictures their whole lives!

DAY BEFORE LOCKDOWN

March 22nd will always stay with me. The lockdown was happening the following day and I wanted to get out of the house before we were stuck in it.

Over the years the Purbecks has been my place of choice when wanting to have some real fresh air. This day definitely deserved that choice. My wife went to see her mum and I went with the boys to Chapman pool. This was the first time and it didn’t disappoint. Parking at Worth matravers we went across the fields to Emmett’s hill. It was such a windy, sunny day but as we walked down the hill the wind dropped and we arrived at the bottom to have tea. With the boys fed we moved around the valley to Houns Tout. The sun was setting beyond our line of sight so I was determined to see it before it past the horizon. The climb up Houns Tout was incredible. Only for the crazy and the silly. We reached the top with the full force of the wind and this is what we saw. What a sight.

So my last normal photo before lockdown is a sunset on normal times looking over the most gorgeous scene and my eldest, Tom, looking towards his future.

THE FUTURE

I expect this is not what I wanted to portray at the time. Just wanted a nice photo of my boy infront of the view but now 3 months later it means so much to have this photo. It is a memory of better times. It reminds me that we will get through this and come out of the other side stronger.
