Busy Busy Saltmarsh & Samphire

Hello brand new week!  I hope you are all having a wonderful July so far – it has been a busy one for me.  I have been finalising our online course (you can have a sneaky peek at the course page on the website over here – I am just working on a little course banner to go at the top of the page, but I am so pleased with the course so far!), looked at our next exhibition space over at Westacre Theatre which starts at the beginning of September.

We have also been busying ourselves replacing photographs that have sold at our current exhibition over at Cley Windmill (Whoo! Sales!), and setting up a branch of our wedding photography business down here in Norfolk!  Phew!

As if that wasn’t enough, we are also running our Landscape Courses over some weekends too.  We have 3 sessions left this season with spaces available (our last session has sold out already), so if you are thinking of having a go at landscape photography, whatever your level of photography experience, we would love to hear from you.



What have you been up to so far this month?

New Photograph of Me!

I am usually far too shy to like being in front of the camera very often.  Brett often wants to practice taking portraits, so I am often roped in – but I cannot say that I enjoy it at all!

On this occasion however I needed a head shot for a magazine article which is coming up in September (with Pretty Nostalgic – if you don’t know this magazine, please go and check them out, it is a wonderful publication), so I had no choice!

I knew exactly the kind of photograph I wanted and explained my ideas to Brett, and because he is a bit fab the result was pretty damn good (if I do say so myself!)  I think the reason that I didn’t mind this photo as much as some of the others was the fact that I didn’t need to look at the camera, and therefore didn’t feel the need to smile (and do my ‘camera face’).  Much less pressure = happy Emma.


Are any of you camera shy too?

Cley Exhibition

I spent last Wednesday setting up our little section of the shop at Cley Windmill with Mum.  It was so satisfying to see something through from taking the photographs, printing, framing and hanging the finished pieces in their places at Cley.  We will be displaying our photography alongside Mum’s lino cut prints for the whole of July – which is very exciting!  Saltmarsh and Samphire’s first exhibition.

We are displaying our artwork and photography in the Mill shop at the same time as part of the Cley Contemporary Art Exhibition, so I am hoping there will be a lot of visitors to look at our offerings too.

Car Full

The little car was pretty full of frames and prints, which meant quite a slow journey over to Cley to keep them all safe!  But everything arrived in one piece, so it was on to unloading everything and putting it in roughly the right places in the shop ready to hang.

Arms Full

It was fairly easy to see which pieces would work well together on the walls, so hanging was surprisingly straightforward here.  The only issues I had were making sure that the pictures were straight on the walls.  I think we managed to get everything pretty well straight!

I was really pleased with how this turned out – I hope that we get lots of visitors who think the same, and some sales would be amazing!  If you are in the North Norfolk area during July, do pop in and see us!
