Band Photography Essex.

This was the 5th annual Halstead Battle of the Bands event. A joint collaboration between The Rotary Club of Halstead and the Empire Theatre Trust. There were a record eight bands performing (there are usually only six) and the quality of playing and diversity in music was absoluely fantastic.
It was also great to see such a wide age range of performers as well with ‘old rockers like Gerry Champion and Buster Nolan to some of the younger players such as Simon Lucas, Keenan Paige and Alex Diss who were all only 16.


Winner Battle of the Bands Halstead

The eventual winners were ‘Anomaly Point’ followed up by ‘Another Dead Hero’ and ‘Drummer Hates Jazz’ All of the bands said they thoroughly enjoyed the event and are looking forward to next year. Special thanks must go to The Rotary Club of Halstead and the Empire Theatre for such a well organised event and to the judges, Pat Saward, Phil Ockelford, Lyndon Holland and Fergus Jones for taking on such a difficult task and finally agreeing on such a worthy winner.

There will be photo’s in this weks Halstead Gazette and The Braintree & Witham Times.

Hope you like the pic’s

I recently had a series of portrait photographs taken by renowned Braintree photographer Jeff Turnbull. Jeff is a great photographer, I have assisted him on a number of occasions and I genuinely admire his work. Jeff wanted to do a portrait that was ‘different’ and something that I could perhaps use on my web site or blog, as you can see here he certainly achieved that. (I wont tell you that he made me carry his camera gear all the way up the hill and the chair all the way down).

Apart from being an excellent photographer Jeff also runs a number of photography courses where he imparts his skills and experience to others. Course included,

Introduction to Digital Photography

Introduction to Portrait & Lighting Workshop

Introduction to Wedding Photography

One- to- One individual Coaching Days

I have spoken with people who have been on Jeff’s courses and they have all been full of praise and admiration.

You can view Jeff’s web site and find details of all his courses at www.jeffturnbull.com

Brother & Sister – Family Portrait.

Birthday Portrait

Daniel & Corrina are brother and sister and wanted some nice photographs together as a birthday presents for their mum. They specifically wanted them to be done in the studio rather than an outdoor environmental portraits.

We had a great time shooting in the home studio and they were very pleased with the selection of images produced. I have subsequently spoken with their mum and she loves them too.

Portrait Photography – Dave on his Harley Davidson.

Dave & his Harley Davidson

I have only just started my blog and am keen to get some photo’s up here I thought I would show some images from my last three shoots. This one I have called, ‘Dave and his Harley’. I had previously done some family portrait photographs of Dave together with his wife and young son. After the shoot and whilst showing them my portfolio Dave saw a photo I had taken of a biker posing with his motorcycle, as soon as he saw it Dave said, ‘that’s it I want some pictures like that’. The shoot went ahead about a week later.

Hi, welcome, this is my first entry onto my very first blog. (Exciting).

I am a photographer living in Gosfield, North Essex. I love taking photographs and photograph pretty much anything and everything, to be cliché for a moment you could say I very passionate about what I do.

My main love though is in photographing weddings and portraits. I specialise in delivering a fine blend of modern and documentary wedding photography in north Essex and creating classic and fine art portraits both in the studio and on location.

I hope to use my blog to showcase some of my ongoing work and as a kind of diary to let you know about anything interesting I have been up to, which does happen occasionally.

I am also a husband to my gorgeous wife Kate and father to my two brilliant sons Rob and Nick.

 

I hope you enjoy looking

 

Tony
