November 2009

Another busy photographic month. I have been getting together all the images for a cook book I am working on. I am really excited about the work but unfortunately I can’t tell you all about it until next year, it is due to be published next September so keep checking back for updates.

My Parents at My Dads 70th

My dad was 70 In November and celebrated with a couple of parties over the space of a week. I obviously photographed at these do’s, one was a special lunch at his restaurant Baldwin’s Omega Sheffield, you can follow the link to see the slide show of the day

David’ s Cocoa and Horlicks Lunch or click here to view and purchase prints.

His second and main bash was a gig night again at Baldwin’s staring Paul Carrick (anyone over 40 will know him from Mike and the Mechanics). Although I did take some photographs at this do, there were so many old friends attending I was so busy chatting I handed the main job over to Chuffed Productions my brothers TV production company. I did take a few though this one of my parents and the rest can be viewed here.

Piggy In The Woods

I have to say I have photographed everything from slaughter houses, alive and dead Turkeys to flaming Christmas puddings this month but my favourite image is this one of Dave Sheppard’s Rare Breed Pig.

A word of warning when photographing pigs always keep an eye on the biggest one! It’s a little scary when you end up knocked to the ground with a large pig standing on you nibbling your boots. Particularly if you have recently watched ‘Snatch’ the movie. I came out unscathed to tell the tale and got some fab pictures you can see the rest here.

I am off to France now for a couple of months, The snow has arrived and it’s time to head out and finish off some commissions and start on some new ones. You can keep up to date with me on Twitter or Face book, and you can keep checking the recent events on my website to view any public events I cover.
