‪‎Perseids Meteor Shower‬

Tonight I decided to do something a little different. I decided to wake up in the middle of the night armed with my GoPro Hero 4 Silver only to try and capture the Perseids Meteor Shower with the peak of the shower happening over the 11th/12th August 2016. 

The Perseids /ˈpərsiːɪdz/ are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift–Tuttle. The Perseids are so called because the point from which they appear to come, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. The name derives in part from the word Perseides (Περσείδες), a term found in Greek mythology referring to the sons of Perseus.

I knew for this I would have to try try capturing the shower using the Night Time Lapse capturing every 30 seconds on the GoPro as I knew I would have to leave it running for a number of hours in order for it to take a large enough photos to create a long enough photos. I have chosen to do a Photo Night Time Lapse rather than a video one as this way I will be able to use the photos individually as well as creating the time lapse by stitching them together.

Below I have included a montage photograph with all the different shooting stars I managed to capture out of the 261 photographs. This left me with a 51 second time lapse which I have also included for you to view below.

Happy Star Gazing everyone.

Christina & John's Engagement Shoot

After talking to both Christina & John about various possible locations to do the shoot, the couple decided to settle on Guildford Castle as they both live nearby and met in Guildford whilst studying at the University of Surrey.

I will be photographing the couples Wedding in May so this was a perfect time to catch up with them both having only met them at their initial meeting and to get some lovely photographs from it and for the couple to also see what I am like behind the camera and for me to see how they will react in front of it to. 

Enjoy the slideshow below from their Engagement Shoot and I look forward to sharing with you the photos from their Wedding Day in May.

Amethyst Designs Evening Wear

This was my second time shooting for Fashion Designer Linda Brown of Amethyst Designs. The aim of the shoot this time was to photograph some of her new evening wear which she had recently finished designing. 

Once again I brought together my team of fellow creatives to help create some stunning images of her outfits for her to use on her website and other promotional material. For our model we managed to get hold of the lovely Mina Renoir a French model and actress who without a doubt is one of the best models I have had the privilege of working with so far. Every shot we took came out perfect.

We were also fortunate to have some jewellery pieces provided for the shoot by Alexander Davis  who is also a good friend of Linda's which helped create that bit of sparkle to the shots.

Paigey T Model

Today I had a shoot with model UK Model Paige who has appeared in numerous magazines and videos across the world. The idea behind the photo shoot was to capture some new exciting photographs that were different than the ones Paige already had.

I have decided to display these a little differently by creating a quick slideshow of my favorite photographs from the shoot using Animoto, which is great for producing hassle free fast slideshows.

Happy watching.
