2018 has gotten off to quite the busy & varied start here at Viperia Images, which is exactly how it should be!
First up was the Pretzl Night Runner event. My second time working with the 360Tri team, I was there with the sole purpose of providing bespoke, pre-race & after race portraiture and documentary style photography for their website & social media. It was an absolutely freezing night but every member of the team powered through like machines and clocking in some great times to boot!
The following week I shot some interior photography for A Step At A Time, a baby & children’s boutique clothing shop based in Horwich. My wife first heard of this shop towards the end of last year and from her first visit she loved it, so when we got our daughter christened the week before there was only one place for us to get her dress from! Also, the owner, Clare & her mum are fantastic people to boot!
Over recent weeks I have started to do some ad-hoc kitchen photography for a local kitchen design firm, AD3 Design. Heading out to their clients homes to shoot their finished kitchens, I’m really enjoying this area of my photography.
The last weekend in January was a weekend full of portraiture. Firstly, one of my previous wedding couples booked me for a home shoot to photograph their growing family after the birth of their beautiful 7 week old daughter Emilia. It certainly brought alot of memories back of when my daughter was that age!
Speaking of my daughter, at 2 year old her personality is really starting to develop and shine and, as she was close to hand as I was preparing for the band shoot, I used her to test the lighting!
Black Sheets Of Rain are a rock n roll band from Lancaster, north west England. The lead singer/guitarist Mr Davenport is a very close friend of mine, having been in See Red together a few years ago. I have also played a few shows with Rich & Dave when my bands The River Soul Project & Blackjack Casino supported them in their previous incarnation of Blackmail Snaps & when they backed Australian guitarist Joe Matera. I shot these in my home studio with the brief of class rock portraiture with plenty of shadows and a key highlight. They really are a superb bunch of guys & Rich,Dave and Matt were really great to work with!
To finish off a great month of shooting I also released my first in a series of wedding vendor showcase blogs. The first was John Alexander of Cool Monkey Entertainment , a superb DJ and top blog too!
Here’s to February!
