I captured this joy filled image in the very late summer on the same day as yesterday’s post. I can give away the secret to the amazing atmosphere that filled the West Sussex coast that day – it was early October and really hot! A rarity indeed in this part of the world and an unexpected gift.
I took this portrait in late summer on the West Sussex Coast. It is my husband in the picture. He loves exploring, and will identify species of birds when he goes walking. I think this image captures his personality perfectly, as he enquiries and seeks to discover. I love combining my love of the beautiful outdoors with artisitic portrait photography.
Yes these deer live in London’s Richmond Park Nature Reserve. In fact the deer were here long before London as we know it. The park is miles wide and although managed, left mainly to nature. People love this park so much they even get married inside it, at its Pembroke Lodge manor house. I was fortunate to grow up very nearby and have many fond family memories here. Nowadays I love to visit and capture pictures here and the Royal Parks is one of the charities I support.
Its a funny story how this picture came about (!) It was a really windy Autumn day, just before a recent storm here in London. There was something in the air and I was doing a portrait shoot. I came up with the idea to try to get an image of my client trying to catch the amber leaves as they blew around. We had a lot of fun trying, and the total mania that ensued created the best picture.
