I’m through to Venus Awards Semi-Finals!

It’s always so lovely to work with the Venus Women Awards in Dorset, I regularly get out & photograph their events and it’s been fantastic to watch the business (and the business of supporting local business women) grow and grow.

I recently photographed 2 of their semi-finalist announcement events, firstly an afternoon tea and networking event for the shortlisted business women at the gorgeous Derby Manor Hotel in Bournemouth. I’m lucky enough to be¬†shortlisted for the Marketing & PR Category sponsored by Exterion Media. While photographing the event, I even went and won their raffle too! ūüėĪ¬†I won afternoon tea at the Derby Manor, I can’t wait to go back – don’t worry, photos on social media soon! ūüėČ

If that wasn’t enough, the following day I photographed the semi-finalists announcement event held at Mercedes Sandown at Holes Bay in Poole, it was an incredibly busy event with well over 100 guests there. While shooting I had to hand my camera over to have my photo taken as I’m also a semi-finalist in the Networker of the Year category sponsored by PlayGolf Bournemouth.

June Favourites

I think June 2016 has probably been my busiest month to date! I think I’ve probably photographed every ‘type’ of photography I cover – we’ve seen families, kids, pets, business head shots, actors head shots, product photography, event coverage & networking photography and one of my current personal favourites – commercial business photography out on location!

We’ve seen loads of families & cute kids in the studio this month as well as a few head shots. Here are some of my favourites….

At the beginning of the month, I headed down to Studland beach to photograph for franchising business Ministry of Dog.¬†¬†They’re an awesome local¬†Dog Daycare &¬†Dog Walker based in Wimborne Minster. With the franchise business launching in September, business owner Alison needed some professional photography to showcase what her business is about – not just looking after some cute pooches, but having a healthy lifestyle & avoiding the office based 9-5 with a unique business based mainly outdoors!

June was also jam packed full of commercial & business photography! White background pack-shot photography based in the studio, and one of my favourite networking events Pure at the Hilton, Bournemouth (what a view!)

 

Family Location Photography

We don’t always stay in the studio! Recently, we’ve had a few very large groups requesting photos to mark special occasions and because they won’t all fit into our studio, we go out on location!

Rebecca was celebrating her 50th Birthday at Captains Club with her family and close friends, travelling from all over the UK to come down to Christchurch to celebrate the special day. We took the group of 14 people from their hotel venue along Christchurch Quay front to their lunch venue at The Kings Arms capturing some portraits on the way.


We also welcomed the Fox Family to Christchurch, a large group of 17 people, having dinner at Harbour Hotel for a family birthday party. We borrowed their grounds to capture the immediate families and some group shots.

If you are interested in having a family shoot out on location, we work on a bespoke basis so give us a call on 01202 432234 and let’s have a chat about what you want!
