In Print!

Yippee!  I am famous (sort of)!  My article for Pretty Nostalgic Magazine came out last week – I am so excited and pleased with how it has come out.

I loved exploring my local area taking the photographs to fit the brief given by editor Nicole Burnett.  I also loved having an excuse to use my old Ilford Sportsman camera again, after using it for my year of film project in February.

I was so pleased to be a part of this magazine, especially as it had hit a slightly rough patch recently and been superbly helped out by a Kickstarter campaign in order to secure its future.

If you are interested in seeing more from this wonderful publication please pop over to the website and have a little look – you can find the link here.  You can also have a sneak peek at some more of the wonderful articles from this current issue by going here.

If you enjoy all things vintage, nostalgic and British, then consider this magazine – it is a great read (even if I do say so myself – ahem!).

Film Swapping #1

I recently contacted the lovely Helen Briggs on her blog (you can see her brilliant photography over here) as she was asking for people to take part in a film swap project.  The idea is you both shoot a roll of film, rewind it almost to the end (so the leader part of the film is still poking out) and post it to the other person.  Then you shoot the swapped film again so you get some double exposures.  Some of the photo results were quite subtle – sometimes it was a little bit tricky to see which part of the photo belonged to who and sometimes you couldn’t really see the second image – but some of them were brilliant!

So I thought I would share the results with you here over the next few weeks.  I love photography projects which result in something a little out of the ordinary!

So here are a few of the images for you to look at today, and I will be back with more soon!

The August Break Look Back

A quick little look back at The August Break project hosted by Susannah Conway.  This is a great way to explore your world in photographs with prompts to help you if you need them.

I was taking part for the second year, and it is amazing what you can see in your everyday life if you stop a little bit and think and look.

I hope that you can see some lovely things in your life too – if you are interested in taking your photography further my brand new online course is open for registration over here  :)

Setting up our next exhibition

Phew!  Another exhibition set up and looking good!  We have been preparing for this exhibition for a few months all in all, and I am so pleased that it is finally up and ready for people to come to.

Westacre Theatre in Norfolk has recently been extended and refurbished and it is looking amazing!  The space we had to display our artwork was huge and I have to say we were pleased with how much of that space we were able to take up and command!  We were secretly a little bit worried!

Can you tell I love the panoramic feature on the phone?!

If you are in the area, I can highly recommend their performances, and you can have a little look at our artwork – it is up until 10th November 2014.  If you cannot make a show, you can always arrange a viewing of the exhibition by calling 01760 755800.  I hope that some of you might be able to make it!
