Lovely Ruby Celebrations at Coed-y-Mwstwr
25th April 2011 - 0 comments
What a lovely day for Mair & Ron to celebrate 40 years of marriage at the Coed-Y-Mwstwr with the close friends and family.

I was a surprise guest organised by the children of Mair & Ron. Mair a former Registrar has conducted many weddings at the `Coed-y-Mwstwr, so I felt very honoured to be asked to capture them both as the centre of attention for a change.

Very shortly Mair & Ron will be receiving a Loxley Exclusive Wedding Anniversary Book filled with lovely memories from their special day.
Latest Portrait Shoot
20th April 2011 - 0 comments
Lauren needed a decent head and shoulders image for her college portfolio as a dancer.

So we took the opportunity of shooting outdoors at Coity Castle on a brilliant sunny day.

With such a strong sun we had to shoot in the shade which really gives such soft colours and great natural tones.

Whilst we were there we thought we might as well shoot some extra poses.

Point to Point at Ystradowen 16th April 2011

What a great day out for the family.

The races started at 2pm, 7 in all, you can have a bit of a flutter, a picnic out the back of the range rover and a bit of sunshine to boot.

The horses come passed at such a speed its hard to appreciate on television the power of these magnificent animals. The beauty of shooting at such an event that I can get right up close to the action.

I have added just a few of the hundreds of images shot just as a sample of whats available at such an event.

Dough Sandwich Bar Commission
15th March 2011 - 0 comments
I have just completed a series of images for 'Dough' a successful sandwich bar in Cardiff. The remit was to produce some images for their menu drop down list on their web site and a few incidental 'fill in' images to compliment the site.

Here are just a few samples from the shoot. Shot with just one Canon 580ex Speedlite (bounced high above the subject matter to create an even soft light over the item. Plus several reflectors placed at the front and side to bounce back the light to fill in any shadows which were too harsh and were not providing enough detail of the subject.

All the images (food and shop) were shot handheld to allow for greater freedom and speed

All the images had a post edit of a slight sharpen and the 'overlay' blending mode set to 50% to increase contrast.
