The End is Nigh

So, I'm having quite a hectic week. I only have another few weeks left of uni, and then the graduate exhibition in June, so the reality of actually finishing now is well and truly HERE.

On Monday I did one of my final shoots in the studio, doing something a little out of my comfort zone - working with video to make a short film to accompany my final images for my FMP. It was really fun, and can't wait to get editing the footage, even though I am a complete noob, you gotta learn these things at some point though, right?

Here's a teeny sneak peak for you. (All this work will be shown in an exhibition @ The Rag Factory, London June 13th)

I have another two shoots lined up for this week, although being so dependant on weather (and welsh weather at that!) is a pain in the buttocks, tonight is a total right off as it's decided to cloud over (doing nightscapes/astrophotography has it's downsides). But it's looking positive for the next couple of days so will have to cram them in and hope for the best! Not to put any pressure on myself or anything...sigh.

Otherwise, I'm working my ass off for the other elements of my last ever university hand in. Last ever...

Oh, and blogging, of course.

Landscapes, like in your dream landscapes. CRAZY ASS LANDSCAPES. Waaah!

 I can't help but to drool over these images, they are just so luscious and, well lush! Infrared images give this image its striking pink colours which lets face it, even the XY's amongst us would love this to be real. Maybe it's the fantasy of these images which make them so exotic and beautiful, making something we know so well- something we might consider mundane - to become magical and fantastical. I stamp my approval all over it.

Blood, sweat, tears, broken fingernails, everything has gone into this website. It has been a real learning curve, having never built a website before, I took up the challenge. Whether I have succeeded or not is another matter, but for now, I am fairly content with it. But as any person knows, an artists work is never complete - I'll be fiddling with it forever no doubt. 

*   *

Please go over and take a quick look. Love it, like it or hate it let me know! Being a freelance photographer is starting to become very real now, and with only a couple of weeks left of uni the reality of life is becoming imminent. I'm excited for what the future holds, and hopefully you'll be seeing lots of new images and updates on the website!

Pen Y Fan

This month we had one good day of unexpected sunshine. Living so near to the Brecon Beacons is such a wonderful thing, takes such little planning and time to go and see some of the most beautiful scenery the earth has to offer. So at any opportunity I like to take advantage of my surroundings! 

Here's some quick pictures from the walk. 

This was also an opportunity for us to take the new Go Pro out for a proper testing, we mounted it onto a AR. Drone to get some ariel shots of Pen Y Fan. Here it is looking frighteningly intimidating in front of some mountains. 

Here's a cow. 

Check out a little video we made from our trip!

Need a little more practice with the AR. Drone but the Go Pro is SO much fun, and cant wait to take it out to capture some more footage!

Quite Time

I've been neglecting this blog a bit recently. I know, I'm full of neglect and excuses. This time though, it isn't the dreaded dissertation that's been distracting me, but, a brand new spanking website that I'm working on.

Don't tell blogger, but it's on wordpress. I'm cyber cheating on Blogger. Shht. 

I'm so close to finishing it, I can't wait to show you all! I'm having a good friend and amazing designer Adam Chard (Croatoan Design) to help me with some cool font/logo-ey type stuff so I'm hoping it'll look sick. Sick as in good. Not puke.

Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for an update soon with a link to my website.



p.s I still love you blogger, you're so chilled and easy to live with, wordpress is far too complicated and has some issues it needs to work out, but you both please me in different ways. Don't judge.

p.p.s I'm also cheating on you with facebook. I'm such an internet slag! (Go look and like!)
