    amazing depth of feeling in this image, superb work here

  • Thankyou – it was an awesome day – learn’t so much – not only how to make some changes to the camera setting for a better result, but more so how to work and listen to the model so they are relaxed and enjoy the moment. Thanks for the favourite

    ahh working and listening to the models are one of the most important things to do in portrait photography, I have been lucky to learn from a very talented, very experienced photographer too, its so much more than just taking images, there is direction etc, you have really created a brilliant image here and I cant wait to experience Tony’s workshops too

  • Yes – afraid i have been one that thought “It’s just another job” – getting to know what Claire and Josh where feeling has changed my out approach completely.
