PORTRAIT SHOOT

28/01/2022

The seasons change and the memories, they last forever.

I was recently asked how images differ month by month for shoots. So I’ve collected a selection month by month to really show how the seasons change. You’ll be surprised by some months, I know I was looking at it all from a different perspective.

This shows that on a cloudy or sunny day and it can look like summer or winter.

Things to consider; there are so many varying factors, obviously the month and season. The weather, time of day, back drop etc. I’ve tried to include wider shots and with varying field/hedge natural backgrounds rather than walls and stables. You can achieve those at almost any shoot in any season.

Frost & snow shoots are harder with needing to check forecast and not be too far away hence so far I’ve just photographed mum at home. I also don’t tend to photograph in January much anymore. It’s a time to schedule in enquiry calls and get everyone booked in, do admin & have a bit of time with my own horses before the real shoot season commences.

Please don’t worry if it’s cloudy/overcast I can work my magic in so many different locations when nature gives us a big natural softbox to work with. Golden hour (evening sun) is beautiful but it definitely isn’t everything. I love all kinds of seasons and whether it’s sunny or cloudy. Your bond is always going to stand out.

“It’s always been what I wanted to do” – My Journey

How did I my business? Is something I get asked a lot. Quite frequently by aspiring photographers and students for their art projects. I wish my inspirations had been so accessible on social media back when  I had to do research projects. It’s still so mad to think...
