Just a quick reminder that I am hosting David Williams at my Studio in January for his superb "Almost Alone" workshop. As most will know David is considered to be one of the finest photographic educators in the world concerning weddings and portraits. It is the first time he has been to Kent and there are only a handful of places left so please book now. It really is the best investment that you can make in your career. I know as I have attended two of them!
Sadly I could not run the half marathon last weekend due to an injury preventing me from training. I was hoping to be at 13.1 mile distance again in preparation for the London Marathon next year. It was not to be though but hopefully next year...
As I could not run (well slowly jog!) in the event I thought I would go around the course and take some photos for the club. Instead of posting them here I have created a slideshow. It can be found at Maidstone Half Marathon. It is quite a large file so I suggest allowing it to load first and then viewing it. There is no music so please select some yourself, turn it up load and enjoy!
If you like my style and would like some portraits of you running or perhaps a family session then please call me on 01622 892227 and we can discuss the options.
I don't write about weddings anymore in my BLOG but had to make an exception on this occasion. Firstly too explain why there are so many images... Susie and Jim and going on honeymoon on the 19th October. Nothing unusual their except their wedding was on the 17th October and they are going away for a a whole year! That is my type of honeymoon... As their first point of call is South America they may not get an opportunity to see them for a while if not today.
Their wedding also deserves to be written about as they did a lot of really cool things that I have not come across before. The first being everyone singing at the end of the ceremony (an Andy Williams song I think) which really set the tone for the day and got the party started in style. This was especially so as one of the guests had bought along a trumpet to play along with. It was a stroke of genius in my opinion. Immediately after the ceremony the cake was cut for everyone to enjoy as canapes along with bowls of sweets.
During the family photos the best man pulled out a mega-phone. Again this worked amazingly well and got no end of laughs which was perfect for me.
During the wedding breakfast a hat was passed around called the "Down in One" hat. If you got given it you had to down your drink. This may sound a little yobish but with this crowd of professionals it was perfect. Again keeping the spirit of the day alive.
Each speech was announced with a different musical instrument creating a buzz of excitement. During the evening funny hats were distributed for guests to wear which went down very well.
What this wedding emphasized to me is that (although this was in a grand venue) weddings are really about the couple and guests. They are what makes a great wedding.
I will be putting a slideshow online for Susie and Jim to see their photos - if you would like to see it then please email me at david @ dpearce.co.uk (leaving out the gaps!) and I will let you know when it is ready.
I am pleased to say that our Christmas vouchers are now available for you to purchase as gifts for friends or family. The come within a personalised card all ready to give. You may purchase them for any amount or for a set portrait package. Please phone me on 01622 892227 for more details.
With the current debacle with the Royal Mail and many pieces of post not arriving I have decided that I will no longer be accepting cheques sent by post as a method of payment. I am happy for you to make bank transfers or pay by debit cards.
We will be at the Wedding Experience show at the County Show Ground on the 25th October if you would like to come and see us for a chat.
We have recently received delivery of the biggest sample album we have ever designed at some 64 sides! It is large but then so was the wedding and quite stunning and a real family heirloom. We really could not make it any smaller! It will be on display at the wedding show or at the studio by appointment.
We have made a few updates to the wedding and portrait websites so please have a look.
We have given notice to leave our studio in February after 14 months. It is a lovely building but just so old and very hard to keep warm and requires a lot of dusting! We are actively looking for another space to act as a studio or just as a viewing and meeting room. If you know of somewhere then please let me know. I need at least 500sq ft for a viewing/meeting room and 1200sq ft for a studio.
I need someone to work for me on a freelance basis to do culling and RAW-JPEG conversion of wedding images. It would ideally be suited to another photographer with some time on their hands. It will be on an "as needed" basis and pays £60 per day. Please call if interested.
Wedding Photography Work?
Are you looking for extra work? Would you like to be my assistant and gain some extra experience? If so then please let me know. You will be tasked with specific tasks on each day and work independently from me but will be required to help with lighting during the couple formals etc.
I have written an article about buying gifts for Christmas which you may find of interest. Instead of having it at the top of this BLOG for 2 months I have created a separate page for you to read it on:-
