GD - nice pics, I think Nam got a Nikon D 3000, but not sure, she did post something on FB about playing with her new toy and needing to recharge the batteries

Blimey... 18 months... has it really been that long?   

GD, yes I got a D3000 a while ago.  In process of clearing out spare bedroom with a view of having a small studio set up.  Toying with camera upgrade ideas subject to VS pay out...

Just thought I boing-ing this thread, wondering if there are any more old and new amateur, semi-pro or pro photographers around in these parts these days?

Not seen GD post in a while?

I see bits of RichK's work on FB...

Anyone else?

Managed to get some decent shots in the last 12 months

Won a flower portrait competetion and had a couple of lanscapes used as back drops on local TV weather forecasts

*waves @ Dave*

I saw your weather pic, that was fab!!

One of my shots recently ranked 'highly commended' (i.e. one of the runners up) in a national competition for a national older persons charity (theme was positive images of ageing & older people), and BBC have one of my butterflies on their website.

It's nice to have little successes like that.

I've done some portraits for a friend of mine which she was really pleased with, I shot Sprocket's kids (not literally I hasten to add) and she was really happy with those results and am about to play second fiddle at my first wedding soon.

Portfolio is slowly building... and entering little competitions here & there...

Hi Nam

Yes I saw your butterflies... Just entered some shots in a wildlife comp at Heligen in Cornwall....

I did my step sons wedding last year.. Stressed or what.. But really happy with 3 or 4 of the shots....

Must be hard and nerve wrecking when you're very involved in the actual wedding yourself, I would imagine?

I wouldn't have the confidence to be primary photographer at a wedding at this stage, but 'second fiddle' kind of gets the luxury of not having the main burden of responsibility and pressured to get the formal shots organised, but can lurk in the background to do all the unobserved interactive stuff.

Yes, I am a professional photographer my website is

I went full time as a photographer 5 years ago and 2 years ago my husband gave up his job to join me in the business.

I specialise in weddings and portraits yes, it is a lot of pressure.... You get one chance to get it right !

I did quite well in the Master Photographers Association awards last year for my region winning Fashion and Glamour photographer of the year, Portrait photographer of the year, pictorial photographer of the year and overall Master Photographer of the Year.

I was also ranked 16th worldwide for my portrait work by the international aperture awards

At the moment we are in peak wedding season, should start to ease up mid October and our last wedding this year is the week before Christmas !
