Street Photography #2

Its been such a busy year so far that my personal project for 2015, to get out there and do more street photography, had taken a bit of a back seat.

Corporate Headshots Photography in Berkshire

We all know first impressions have always mattered, but in the past that would usually occur in person, perhaps with a handshake. However, the world has moved on (or to be more accurate, online) and people are more likely to have researched you via your website, Google, LinkedIn before you’ve even had a chance to test the grip of their handshake.

Family Portrait Photography thats a bit different

The days of popping down to your local high street for a family portrait photography shoot in a studio are, in my opinion, over!

As Valentines Day is nearly upon us, I thought it was a great opportunity to try my baking skills (which are minimal) and combine it with my photography project.
