Having several generations at the same time in the studio is always a nice challenge. The stars of the day are usually the smallest members of the family. This session was no different in this respect – but judge for yourself.

Something completely different. I was asked to do some photography of volunteers laying a new hedge near Downham Market in Norfolk. I enjoy working on location and having the opportunity to do some work in the country side is even more of a pleasure.
I met David and Wally at the site where they have already been working for a few days. Hedge laying is a bit of an art and it needs skill, knowledge and stamina. David is retired and although very busy with other things has decided to to a course on hedge laying a couple of years ago. He now gets commissioned to make or renew hedge all over the area. It seems that there is a shortage of good hedge layers in the country. David told me that he loves doing it, although it’s hard work and not really for the money (you are paid per metre of hedge laying) he thoroughly enjoys it.
Although the images were taken digitally I wanted a rustic look and feel to the final pictures so I decided to go black & white and tone them the way I would do in the darkroom. Hope you enjoy my little photography essay of hedge laying in Norfolk.
Robyn and her little wizzzzzard Annie. Getting Annie into the frame was like trying to catch a little mouse but she’s great fun and we had a great photography session in my studio.
What a great bunch of people at the award winning Review Hairdressers in Petersfield. I had great fun at our shoot and would get my hair cut there if I had any (!) You don’t need to be a model to become a hairdresser but at Review most hairdressers are models as well.
