You may remember I had a great trip to the Hebrides last year, so when I was asked if I wanted to go again this year, I didn't have to think about it for long at all....It was with 4 other photographers and leading us all was the super talented Nicki Gwyn Jones; who also has such a great knowledge of the area. When I was asked on my return "how was it ?" and I said "we had such great fun..." they said "yes, but what about the photographs ?"
Well, I am slowly working my way through them but thought I would share a couple of my favourites so far.
I will be at Saltwood Castle tomorrow, exhibiting my images and will also have some of my greetings cards, including a new set titled "Birds on the Beach". Please make sure to pop by and say hello, if you are there too !
I am delighted that some of my limited edition prints will shortly be on exhibition and available to buy at Thalassa, in Folkestone. Thalassa, (the greek word for sea) is a beautiful shop selling everything coastal and is definitely worth paying a visit. It is run by Christine and Mario and has received great reviews..... "Lovely shop with some really gorgeous prints and pieces either for gifts or for yourself ! Really lovely lady owns it too, she was incredibly friendly and helpful".
I will let you know once they are installed and available for viewing :)
My limited edition prints are now exhibited and available to buy at The Dog House, in Sandgate :)
I am delighted that some of my Limited Edition Prints will shortly be on exhibition and offered for sale at The Dog House, in Sandgate. I will let you know once they are installed and ready for viewing :)
The Dog House is run by Karen and David who describe it as an artisan emporium, with an eclectic mix of arts, crafts, specialist teas, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juices and sparkling presses as well as gluten free cakes.
Definitely well worth a visit and in case you don't believe me :) this is just one of their latest independent online reviews:-
"Should you find yourself in Sandgate anytime, a visit to the Dog House is a must. Soak up the friendly atmosphere created by the owners Karen and David whilst drinking coffee, or choose a tea from the many varieties on offer. They have a lovely range of arts and crafts up for sale in their shop as well as a nice selection of light bites to enjoy whilst listening to some relaxing background music.
Thankyou karen and David. Cant wait to visit again"
Had a great day shooting images for Emma Keating, who is a local jeweller who is currently featured in Vogue Magazine, which is very exciting ! She is very creative and talented and her work is amazing and I think you will agree, speaks for itself.
Just a few of my favourite images below...
Julie is a local hypnotherapist, here in Hythe, who has a great reputation. She wanted a new headshot photo for her business... Whilst she initially chose the picture on the right, we agreed that the bright green was stunning on her colouring, so she opted for that one !
Inspired by my visit to the Butterfly tent, I wanted to try and capture some indigenous butterflies in their natural habitat. I had a couple of lovely evenings walking through fields with beautiful wild flowers and butterflies; although I was told that if I had been two weeks earlier there were so many more to see ! Note to myself for next year......
It would also have been a whole lot easier if it hadn't been so windy :)
Had a great day out with a couple of fellow photographers at the Natural History Museum butterfly tent this week and also got to "play" with a lensebaby lense. If you get the opportunity to go it is definitely with a visit.
Whilst a Blue Morpho did land on me, I didn't manage to get a good capture of one, so I will just have to go back again.......
Along with some fellow members of the Folkestone Camera Club we held an exhibition and sale of our works, in Sandgate. It was a great success and a fun weekend, where not only did we sell quite a lot of our work, but perhaps more importantly we all got to know each other better and established some new friendships. I can see quite a few new photographic outings being organised !
The image below was my best seller; the buyers said they loved the colours, the banding and the calm tranquil feeling of the image :)
