Slow Down, to Speed Up

It's been a little slow on the photo front recently, finding the time to fit it in has been really difficult, which has frustrated me endlessly as it's the one thing I really want to spend my time doing.

I have, however, been putting together a new website, and trying to book in photo jobs. I have a wedding this Saturday, which K and I are doing together, so will hopefully have some photo's from that soon.
I may also be doing some next week, once I have the full details of those, I can say a bit more about them.

For now though, this is our Twitter!/H_K_Photo

New Lens

I recently purchased a wide angle lens and I must say, I love it.

I got it mostly to start doing Interiors, but have been testing it out on other things whenever I get the chance.
It's been a bit slow on the photography front, as my normal job takes up far too much of my time, but these are a few of the testers

I also have a website now:

Street Walkin'

I rediscovered these pictures the other day.
I took them the end of last year, not long after Kevin had arrived actually. I think it was November, it was freezing cold, and we went wandering the streets near our house in search of any interesting places to take photos.
Needless to say, we didn't say outside very long, but we did manage to get these (it helps that he's a complete poser):

And he got one of me.

Tea Anyone?

I recently had the pleasure of shooting a tea party for a charity event Dan and Michele were holding in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. It was a great day, the sun was shining, the bunting was in the trees, and loads of people turned up. It was also a success in terms of the money raised, so well done to Michele for that.

The ladies who came along to host the tea party have their own tea party business Secret Teas and they did an amazing job. With vintage crockery, outfits and style, it was perfect for the day.

These were some of my favourite pictures from the day

Can't have a proper tea without sandwiches.

Alkham and Folkestone

While I'm on a roll with this blogging thing (it won't last I know, I'll be back to posting once a month soon), I thought I'd post a few of the pictures I took on a recent trip to Folkestone. We stayed at Alkham Court Farmhouse and B&B which is in the middle of Alkham Valley. It was the most amazing place, the owners are lovely and accommodating, and we were lucky enough to be the only guests for the weekend, so had the sauna and hot tub all to ourselves.

In Alkham Town, walking off the beaten path turned out to be the perfect thing to do, as we discovered St Anthony's Church hidden behind the houses. With graves dating back to the 18th century still visibe, and apparently ones from the 12th century having once been there, it was a fascinating place to photograph.

We also made a quick stop in Folkestone while waiting for the coach, so there are a few from there too.

Oaksmith Studios

I have often spoken to my friend Mauro about doing photo's with him. Today, we finally got round to it. Mauro has set up his business, Oaksmith Studio with friend and business partner Anna. We went round to do some promo shots for them.
They're both such great people, and so good at what they do, definitely two of the most creative people I've hung out with in a while. Their studio is located in an artists compound in Bermondsey and after being there for an hour or so, I wanted to move in. The place is beautiful and inspiring, especially the breathtaking London view from the roof terrace.
We took hundreds of pictures, that I still need to sort through and edit, but here are a few of my favourites, pretty much unedited.
