Celebration by Paul Tupman


Small (16.4" x 21.9")

Available to buy on…

Thrilled at being asked to take some pictures for my friends who are expecting their fist child, I jumped at the chance and suggested something a little different to the shoot they may have been thinking of having at home…
Shot out in the desert, west of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on an overcast and windy day… work in post processing, sat in my warm house on an even more overcast and windy day… winters here!
Read my journal for a description of the day… crowds and all!

    Oh my goodness Paul, no offense but I didn’t think it’d be THIS
    good!! I thought there’d be a hot, sweaty oversized woman rolling about,
    (somewhat)..this is totally frameworthy & could be in ANY magazine.
    I am blown away……!

    WOW, Paul…you must be so proud of this. I’m with Birgitta – this is totally frameworthy. Absolutely stunning. Your friends must be so thrilled with the shots. Can’t wait to see more….

    Paul this was certainly worth the wait! This is AMAZING! It is such high fashion/editorial all it’s missing is “Pregnancy weekly” printed along the top and it’s a front cover! It’s a rare thing to see such a heavily pregnant woman…. out in the desert….all glammed up waving a scarf above her head! The sense of freedom and happiness and colour AND title are stunning! Just bloody amazing work : ) Great job x

    Gobsmacked Paul… I love everything about this, from the concept, to the execution and the final product. This is a unique and very special image that any photographer would love to have in their portfolio. The biggest compliment I feel any artist can give to another is this… I wish I had taken this shot.

    God this is so beautiful…
