April 2010 Blog

The Mill, Bozel

The Mill, Bozel

From reading my last three blog posts about our epic Val to Val trip you may be forgiven for thinking that all my time in  April was taken up with training. Fortunately for my bank balance this was not the case.
As usual April was my busiest month of the winter season. The weather is always more favorable and chalet companies know their plans for the following season and are thinking about next years promotional images. This always makes me really busy, I had several lifestyle on the piste photo shoots over the Easter holidays and several chalet shoots. I made a development to my services with virtual tour movies for chalet websites, which have proved popular  for both the rental and selling property markets. I hope to develop this side of the business further.

This is one of my favorite family shots. It came from the Sandersons home shoot and I am looking forward to more of the mother and baby shoots I have scheduled in May.

May is the beginning of my wedding season and I can’t wait to catch up with all of my bride and grooms. I had a lovely morning in Bozel, France, with Ben and Erica. Here is my favorite shot from their pre wedding shoot. They as always were a pleasure and I look forward to photographing their wedding in France later in the summer.

Of course the Val to Val trip was my best and worse experience of the month however a very close second best is a few days I spent in Beaune at the end of the month at Joseph Drouhin, Chanson and my favorite boutique Vin Yard. Amongst the hard work we had access to Cellars not usually shown to the public. We tasted some delicious wines and learned a lot about the love and care taken over the vines to achieve perfection. I am writing an article about this trip and I will post it on the blog once it’s been published.

It’s always chaotic at the end of the season moving from France to the UK I am pleased that the opening of my studio in June will see an end to some of the chaos and will make it easier for me to work in both countries at any time of the year. Have a fantastic May!!
Kind Regards
