Been looking after grandkids most days these holidays. Earlier in the week we took them to Kirkley Hall
They have a great zoo. I took my Fuji X-T2 along with my 56mm 1.2 lens. I wasn’t really after “doing a shoot”. It was habit carrying my camera.
But, after the animals – and the gift shop of course – we went for deserved cuppa and slushes. For once my youngest granddaughter Olivia was not the bundle of energy she normally is…so had some time to grab some portraits of her. And oldest Chloe of course.
So finally – after 7 years..she sat still!!
I realise that (once again) I have fallen a bit behind in keeping all my many followers (ha ha) up to date with my photographic journey.
Marla is a great model (Marla Pandora to giver her her full title) who can be found here
She hails from bonnie Scotland but often “tours”. She had booked into what she thought was an apartment – but turned out to be one of the many new student blocks springing up all over Newcastle.
This is where my new 16mm 1.4 Fujinon lens really came into its own. The apartment looked massive on the advert…but a tad smaller in reality! But fortunately the light was good and it was split into two levels, so we were able to get some variety during the shoot.
Here are some of the images I took. Marla is a great model and I highly recommend her.
A few of the images may show some boob or nipples so maybe NSFW or under 18’s.
Images all shot on a Fuji X-T2 with 16mm 1.4 lens. A couple of the portraits (the close ups were on my 56mm 1.2.
I used a mix of natural light wherever possoble..or an LED light. I find this less “brutal” than flash as there wasnt really room for a softbox.
Any comments welcome and please share.
Thanks for reading
Watch model Bobbi Castle go through her poses in this short video of her and photographer on a location shoot.
I bumped into my good friend Chris (his blog is on here as Grimeandglamourphoto) while he was in the middle of a photoshoot in Newcastle with a drop dead gorgeous model. (Not unusual situation for Chris to be fair!)
I had my Fuji x-T2 camera with me and asked if I could take some footage of the shoot.
Here are the results! I think it’s quite canny….

Let me know what you think.

1 view……all day….
I post all over and this takes time to do…may have to reconsider
Then again it’s probably because my blogs not interesting enough?
Whether I post street pics..
Or shots from my model shoots…
Newcastle upon Tyne hosted a pretty big Car Show event this weekend. You know the thing – supercars you only see on Top Gear, up market vehicles etc that have petrol heads swooning. I didn’t bother going on the Saturday as had other plans, but Chris Harrison and I wandered there on the Sunday to try and capture the mood etc.
You can see Chris’s work (I highly recommend having a look at this guys work) here http://grimeandglamourdiary.tumblr.com/
Anyway, upon arrival at Grays Monument – well known Newcastle meeting point at the top of the beautiful Gray Street- cars stretched for miles. Well I assume they did because they were submerged in people!!
The place was heaving and as we wandered around Chris and I concurred that “this was a dead loss”!
So we both just basically said “let’s just do our normal street stuff”.
So here it is. My “feel” of the Newcastle Car Show. Sorry petrol heads..not many cars to drool over!
Actually to be fair, I do have a few car type shots so I may do a part 2!

I’ve been trying to put together videos of my shoots. Mainly stills with music. I do intend to try an action BTS type thing one some time. But – I’m learning to edit still.
If you watch it and like it, please comment and give a thumbs up. Even if you don’t like it I can take it!!
