#Kingston Blount Point To Point Pictures

This afternoon I travelled a short journey up the road to the Point to Point races at Kingston Blount.

I took a different camera to the one I usually use, a Fujifilm X-Pro 1. It is quite different to use compared to my usual Canon EOS 5D Mk3 system but due to it’s size you can become more inconspicuous and blend into the crowd better and still achieve professional results.

As with all of my work I like to tell the story, capturing the detail, the behind the scenes, the overall picture and people involved in the day and this can be achieved due to the discreet nature of the X- Pro 1. Its not as fast at focusing as my Canon gear but is a great camera to use for photo journalism.

I met several lovely people today and promised to put some images on my blog and Facebook page soon. Please visit my Facebook page to see a small selection of images. Please LIKE my Facebook page to then receive a notification when I post the other images later this week.

Charlotte, Robin and Other Animals….

A couple of months ago I met one of my lovely couples, Charlotte and Robin at Wellington Riding near Reading, Berkshire. Charlotte keeps her horse there and wanted to have some pictures with him and their dog Oswald. Pirate the horse and I originate from Cornwall so we had something in common, he is definately more handsome although my nose is smaller!  I love photographing people as well as animals so this session was going to be great fun and possibly challenging as Oswald and Pirate do not always see eye to eye!

It was a great session and I think we all enjoyed it, even Pirate and Oswald! Here are some of the pictures that Charlotte and Robin had in their signing book for their wedding.
