For Family days out that is! Over the past 3 or 4 years the amount of photos I have in my portfolio has grown at a fantastic rate, with all the weddings and portrait sessions I’ve been lucky enough to have shot, and yet the number of images I have shot of my own kids and family has dwindled alarmingly. Through that time I’ve been slowly building my camera gear by adding quality lens’ and upgrading the camera bodies, and although I’m over the moon with the quality of the …

2012 for many it seems has been a bit of a naff year, and in many respect its been just that for me to but my photography business has taken strides in the right direction, and although those steps are relatively small I had no idea these steps would ever really happen.
