Okay….(I can hardly type with excitement!)…in 48 hours I’ll be winging my way to New York City for my month long stay! So, I wanted to tell you what’s happening and where you can find me online.
First of all, this website. I will be posting New York photographs on this blog. You will also have the opportunity to buy prints of these photographs, thus owning an iconic image of New York and helping to support my trip too!
Big Apple Unpeeled. This is where I am going to be very active, bringing you news, stories, photographs and videos from New York. Pop over, it’ll be ace and I want you to get involved too!
4am Project. I hope you can all take part on the 17th October! I’ll be blogging over on the 4am Project website AND I’m organising a 4am photo walk in Times Square.
So my bags are packed, I’ve got a few dollars in my purse and some comfortable walking shoes. I’m all set!
This photography set comes from a commission from the Health Exchange which is part of the NHS.
The Health Exhchange is a social enterprised based in Birmingham. It delivers free and confidential health information about lifestyle choices helping people to make postivite decisions about their health.
It was a very interesting and varied job with a detailed brief. I needed to capture a set of images that reflected their services and presented an attractive, positive view of the services that they offer.
As well as covering quite a range images, I covered a far bit of ground in and around Birmingham, starting in the city centre then working my way out to various locations in Winson Green, Handsworth, Cannon Hill Park and Sparkhill. And I was mostly relying on the willingness of the public to be photographed!
I hope you enjoy this set of active photographs from Birmingham!
I was by St Philip’s church when some music in the distance caught my ear. I wondered over, to find that the International Dance Festival were choreographying a dance routine. Perfect!
I joined a group of walkers in Handsworth Park. Boy, could they power walk! Which meant I had to run to keep ahead of them at times to get various shots. I was quite exhuasted after that jaunt!
I wanted to capture the ‘movement’ of the treadmill, so slowed my shutter speed down for this shot.
Some screen shots of the Health Exchange website so you can see how my photographs have been used!
I’ve got SO much blogging to catch up on! I did my first wedding photography shoot recently, so will be blogging about that soon, so watch this space
