Its all about the light....

Well...a bit gutted as the aforementioned motorcross was abandoned due to poo weather... which however, may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

In the last 48 hours i've spent nearly 10 hours on the train, see Newcastle go 1 match closer to championship glory and to top it off had a 1-2-1 session with an awesome photographer and photographed an FHM high street honey..... can a man complain about that!!!!!!

A quick hop in the MOTO MAGAZINE van and quick thinking change of plan by Adam saw us back at his studio covering the wonders of lighting. My brain now hurts trying to understand the inverted square carry on and other delights, but I did manage to get some great pics, partly due to some good lighting instruction from Adam and the amazingly lovely poses of Katie Green, who, aswell as being a really really lovely woman all round, knows all about Nikon's (esp colour management haha).

Hope you enjoy the snaps from today, i did!!

MASSIVE CHEERS to Adam and Katie and of course Adam's wife for the wicked dinner of sarnies and amazing shortbread things.

Sunny Mildenhall....!!!

Well, I'm currently on a train destined (eventually) for Newmarket. Tomorrow see's me in the rather tasty jump covered track of Mildenhall for a days photo training with Adam Duckworth form Factory Media and other such delights.

Hopefully, weather permitting we'll get some nice motorcross pics in and I'll come back a better informed man with regards to MX Photography.

Looking out of the window, I have to be honest and say, I wish I'd remembered my waterproof jacket :(

Pics (hopefully) to follow.

NEMXC hits Rowley!

YEY..the MX season has finally, after few weather hitches, kicked off again.

I unfortunately missed Round 1 for NEMXC due to a bit of last minute relocation, but Round 2 saw a slightly sludgy few corners on a relatively lively track at Rowley, Co Durham last Sunday.

Thanks to some technical mayhem of corrupted memory cards and some auto focus malfunctioning, I lost a few images, but still managed to salvage a few hundred from the day.

Here's a few bits of the action.

(first bend or 'the hole' took a few victims)

(Nice and sloppy near the centre of the track)

(Some of the new generation found the track challenging, but still put together some good rides)

Well, from 4 shows of dancing, to a sunny afternoon in the skate park with one Miss Zoe C.

After a few shots in the studio, it was off upto the Skatepark for some outdoorsey stuff and a bit of off camera flashgun practice.

Oh what a beaurtiful morrrrniiiiiinnnng!! Oh what a beautiful....yeah..enough!

Quickie today as I'm sorting out the pics from the last few days of dance shows (final night tonight).

Drove to the studio this morning with the windows down and sunglasses on. Am I in LA? no...dreaming?..No.... is it finally summer?...NO! 8 Degree, 8 degrees was all it took to leave the coat at home, don the sunglasses and roll down the windows.

The plus side...local MX trac, PJMX (Maverick Moto Parc) reopens next Sunday..GOOAL!

Its all about the dancing!

Well...I've been a bit manic lately, this weekend sees the MX start again, YEY and also a totally contrasting topic of dance shows. Thursday, Friday, 2 shows saturday and sunday (sunday following a days MX at Rowley) may see me sleep in monday morning, so maybe another letter about dropping Charlie off late at school will be coming my way ...OOOPS.

Anyway, couple of snaps from yesterdays show..there will be more to follow but i have to check as some of it involved minors and rules being rules...i gotta be careful.

If you're havin an event and want an awesome photographer haha.
