Back in a studio at last

It has been a while since i last posted. My day job has been a little crazy (in a good way) and I have had little time to shoot landscapes let alone portraits…. until last weekend.
The wonderful Miss Elsie May, a local burlesque dancer and I arranged this shoot months ago, so we eventually booked a studio (Studio Visage in Folkestone) and a MUA (Sister of Sinister) and headed off down to Folkestone to shoot…. and what a shoot it was. Really cannot wait to do more work like this.

It doesn’t get much better

Life has been busy lately, but in such a good way. My day job working in wine is going well and I am learning so many new skills to help drive the team forward.

Photographywise things are awesome, with many new skills learned and connections made.

All in all life is good, I feel fulfilled, and it has taken so long to get here, and it has been a massive struggle but finally I feel I have a place in the world! For all those struggling, fight hard for what you want to achieve, it is worth it in the end.

Taken last night, this is another epic sunset from a local beauty spot that helps free my mind and focus on the future.

Blast from the past

A few years ago I worked with the awesome Sister of Sinister (Kristina) at my first ever studio day. I arrived very nervous and apprehensive with only a vague idea of what I was doing. Thankfully Kristina and her boyfriend/ studio owner were so helpful in sorting the lights and making suggestions and I came away with some awesome images.

A beautiful day

Last weekend I had the opportunity to shoot some natural light portraits in a location I think will be going at the top of my list for portraits. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and my muse for the day turned up in the most amazing and elegant dress, something like a Greek goddess! Can’t wait for another shoot like this.

The weekend ahead

Last night was a chance to relax before a busy weekend of making new friends, a portrait shoot, lots of office work to catch up on and editing to do. So i headed for one of my favourite spots (Again) and tried a viewpoint I have not done before to capture the sunset. I hope you enjoy.

Do check out my portrait website if you have time and feed back your thoughts, I have been thinking of adding a landscape section…. let me know what you think.  https://www.howardwiddison.co.uk/

Spring has sprung at last

I took myself off out yesterday morning, hunting for suitable portrait locations and how the light plays out on a sunny morning and discovered that pretty much overnight, spring has sprung. One of my local parks…well actually it is two parks…Gildredge and Manor Park, was in it’s full glory with every tree packed with blossom, and the flower beds full of bluebells and plenty of buds and shoots coming up.

Well my mission was accomplished, these two locations seem to be ideal for family portraits and I look forward to capturing some portraits here soon
