New! TimeLight Photographic
After much deliberation, I decided to shelve my old FB photography page and SmugMug accounts – Both were named ‘Pitcheresque Imagery’, but although I love a good pun or play on words, that title didn’t entirely roll off the tongue, and spelling it correctly to search on the web was a pain for those new to my photographic endeavors.
Plus I’m a reasonably literate chap who can actually spell ‘picturesque’, and I don’t enjoy the though that others might believe otherwise!
As a result, ‘TimeLight Photographic’ was born!
It’s a name that I feel somehow conjures up the types of images that I focus on (lots of historical and reenactment shots in my portfolio), as well as highlighting that light and time relate to aperture and shutter speed, both rather relevant to any photographer.
I’ve been producing the images for my wife’s business ‘Prior Attire’ (www.priorattire.co.uk) for the last few years, and following this change of name, the first folks to turn up for their new historical outfits were Karen and Wel from Happening History.
They loved the new outfit, and Karen wrote a blog about her new Victorian clothes and our shoot together; you can read about it here:
From now on, ‘TimeLight Photographic.com’ will be my portfolio site, my portal on the net for my
obsession hobby-turned-business, and a place where I can organise my images. I plan to use it to direct my creative impulses and to post projects regularly as I delve into more specific areas of photography and practice both more complex and more artistic set-ups.
I’ll be continuing to produce the images for Prior Attire, as well as offering to cover events (equestrian, martial arts, reenactment and others), portraits, and weddings. The two weddings that I have covered to date have been great fun and a real test of my planning, my photographic skills and my ability to think on my feet.
I have to thank Paul Mockford of Mockford Wedding Photography (http://www.shearsmockford.com/) for all of his help and tuition as I’ve been learning about which buttons to push in what order – and in particular for agreeing to be my ‘second shooter’ at Lucy and Richard Bunt’s wedding in 2015, my first as primary photographer.
So, expect to see and hear more from TimeLight Photographic, both here and on G+, FB, Twitter, Instagram and all other social media.
Watch this space for updates on photography projects and explanations of how I plan and achieve specific results, including my screw-ups in practice…
This is a new beginning!
