Development pieces

Moving on from the ridiculous show earlier this week... It did generate 102 views to that single post, along with 138 page views yesterday alone from people all over the world, as well as bumping my 'accusations and backstabbing' post straight up to my most viewed posts of all time, coming in at #3!

Here's some developmental work from a project I am undertaking at University. These are by no means final images, but the general idea and feel of them is what I am aiming for in later work.

Apart from working on my projects for University, I am still working my way through a recent wedding shoot, some more of which has been posted on my facebook page. Also, Christmas is fast approaching so I'm hoping to showcase some of the preparations for my first Christmas with Mr Sinclair :)

*Update: during the time it took for me to write this post, my 'accusations and backstabbing' post has actually moved into position #2 for most viewed of all time!

Accusations and backstabbing

I had a not so nice morning 'surprise' today when I opened my viewers list...

Let me tell you some things.
I started photography seriously way back in 2006. Since then I have developed this welcomed talent into something that is now proving to be more than just a hobby- it is, honestly, a money-maker for me, and a full career if I choose to take it that way. I am currently in the middle of my second year at University working to graduate with a BA(hons) degree in Photography and Video.

When people try to 'rat-you-out' or 'dump you in it'- not just any person, but an immature wannabe who has done nothing but copy and steal your ideas from the beginning, it becomes more than frustrating and more than something to just ignore. 

I have been accused of stealing work from somebody else...accused by a person who does nothing but copy all my ideas. How ironic is that? (yes, THIS is the correct usage of the word 'ironic', and the issue of this person copying me has even been brought up by a 10 year old!). But the thing is, this person didn't think I would find out. They were sneaky. Ha! I'm not thick.

What I don't understand is, why try to backstab someone who you yourself claim to be "a very special person", someone you supposedly "admire for her personality, passion and love for photography", and someone you describe as "truly amazing"? It doesn't make sense, only in the way that this person must be very two-faced. And very immature. To say you have "come across a site" that has supposedly stolen work is a gross understatement when this person seems to follow my blog religiously. 

It's interesting that it has come about at this particular time as the work I am accused of stealing is actually an image I saw floating around the world of facebook, and borrowed it to make a point about certain people, this person included. I have not claimed to have shot this image, nor written the quote. The original source is clearly visible, it is a part of the image. How then am I stealing it and claiming it as my own? I would not do that, I already know a bit of what that feels like.

I am fed up of biting my tongue. I am not a confrontational person, it is just not me. I have mentioned before that sometimes I am not so good with words, but right now is definitely a time when words come easily.

This person will know who they are. I implore now- LEAVE ME ALONE.

Top wedding portraits

Just a very small selection, and includes some of my much older work, but hopefully it will give you a taste of my style of wedding photography.

Looking forward to working with more wedding couples in the coming months!
