Looking back at some of my favourite photos from 2018. For each of the 12 days (of Christmas) I’m sharing one of my favourite pictures I’ve taken during 2018.


#12 – Charliee

Another trip to a studio, to photograph Charliee liberated this fine photo, and more than a few others. This was a simple studio headshot, lit with a gridded beauty dish. I took this in Studio88, a local studio I have used before for product shots. I had a fun shoot with Charliee and the time flew by, I hope that we get the chance to meet at the respective ends of my lenses again in 2019.

Camera settings – Charliee

  • EOS 5D Mark IV
  • EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
  • 1/200s, f/7.1, ISO 100

I really hope you have enjoyed the “12” photos I’ve shared from my shoots last year. I’m looking forward to 2019 photographically, and will be seeking out some new faces to work with. Particularly, gentlemen/blokes/guys, please get in touch as I would love to see more of your faces in my photos.

I’ll be delivering more workshops too… starting with EOS Training Academy in the middle of the month, then hitting the road to South Wales and Peterborough at the end of the month for camera club talks.
