Last week I had Clare in for a fitness photoshoot. Clare is the owner of Well Fit, Bognor Regis, and runs lots of classes locally. I also did her photography for her business website. So when I started offering fitness photoshoots, it was natural that I asked her along to test out my lighting and shoot style.
Here are some of the photos from the session.
We had a fab shoot, and the photos from each fitness shoot I have done so far have been really different, depending on the type of fitness the subject prefers. Clare does lots of Zumba and exercise classes so we based her shoot on those things. I am in awe of her press ups!
Fitness shoots last for one hour and cost £65 with one digital image of your choice from the session (prices correct for 2015)
Please do contact me using my website contact page if you would like any more information or to book a shoot. Sessions require a deposit of 50% to be paid to book your time in my diary, with the rest being paid at the time of the shoot.
Thank you for having a look at my latest work,
I thought I’d do a baby safety blog post for you all. As a member of BANPAS (Baby And Newborn Photographers ASsociation) I understand the importance of safety during photoshoots involving babies, newborns and young children. This is why I have undertaken specific training in newborn photography with one of the leading newborn photographers in the UK (Pennycress Photography) to ensure I am safely posing and photographing newborns and upwards.
You will notice a lot of photographers these days offering newborn shoots. Most offer many different poses and ways of working. However a few of the poses which your photographer may use require the use of composite images (combining more than one photo to achieve the end result) this can be tricky, but in certain poses it is the only safe way to get the image you want. Please please ensure your photographer uses composite images if you are after any of the more tricky newborn images. There is a whole web page dedicated to composites also on the BANPAS website http://www.banpas.co.uk/composite-poses.
Here is an example of one of my photos taken in this way-
However, just because a baby is no longer a newborn, does not mean we need to stop taking precautions! Especially when they get a bit stronger and start kicking more. There should always be ‘spotters’ if baby is at any height off the floor, even just by the amount of our newborn posing beanbags. Blankets can be cloned in later, but an injured baby is an injured baby. Please ensure that if anything you see during your photoshoot (no matter where you go for it) that worries you, you ask the photographer and be actively involved in keeping your baby/child safe.
Here I am going to show you a photo from a recent three month old baby shoot.This image was taken with the baby on my newborn posing beanbag, with a parent at each side spotting, and me at the front. This ensured baby was safe and secure at all times. The blanket was added back in afterwards.

Debbie’s family shoot
Last year I had the pleasure of taking maternity photos of Debbie and her family.
This year they returned for some photos of them with their beautiful new arrival. Both children were stars for this shoot, not a single tear from the baby, and big brother was very happy to sit for his photos as well.
This was a standard one hour family shoot, as baby was older than I would recommend for a newborn session. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos.
