Photojournalism Essex|Press Photography.

I was sitting at home a few days ago amidst the recent fall of snow when I received a call from Newsquest Media asking if there was any chance I could get some ‘nice’ snowy images for them, for use in local papers. It was great to be asked and I welcomed the chance to get out and take some photo’s; the only problem was I didn’t get the call until almost 3.00 PM and the light was beginning to fade, on top of that I was due to take my son out at 3.30 (ish). None the less I grabbed my gear and set out in earnest, I had just 45 minutes to see what I could do.

Ideally they wanted pictures with people in them, but I also thought a few local landscapes may look good. I had a quick tour of Halstead and Gosfield and managed to get quite a selection, I have shown some of them below. A total of five images were printed in the Halstead Gazette a few days later.

Studio Family Portrait Photography – Halstead

I am a professional photographer based in Gosfield near Braintree North Essex; I specialises in wedding and portrait photography, for more details please visit my main web site www.tonysalephotography.co.uk

It was my pleasure last week to take some portrait photographs of young mum Abi and her 5-month-old son Kian. Well actually most of them were of Kian but I did manage to sneak the odd shot of ‘mum’ now and then as well.

As part of the planning process I like to ensure when photographing babies or young children that they have had their latest feed and sleep prior to the shoot. With Kian It seemed we had timed it perfectly, he was well fed and rested and in fact was still sleeping on arrival. I took the first few shots whilst he was still sleeping and then a few more as he gradually awoke. Kian has fantastic big bright blue eyes and he was a delight to photograph. We got some really nice shots and Abi loved them all.

Unfortunately though Kian has just starting teething and to be fair he soon became a little grumpy and distracted, there was no way he wanted to charm us with his ‘cute’ baby smile.

That’s not a problem, these things happen and there’s not too much you or I can do about it. I will simply arrange for Abi to bring Kian along to finish the shoot on another day, at no extra cost of course.

It’s really importance to me that the photo shoot should be relaxed and enjoyable,

it’s all about getting great images for you. If for whatever reason we don’t get the images you want then we can simply arrange to do another shoot on another day. This reassurance actually helps people to relax; they don’t feel self conscious or obliged to perform

Having said Kian became a bit grumpy we still got some great portrait photographs, see what you think.

One of the best looking, fun loving, intelligent and sophisticated couples I have ever photographed

I’m going to be honest here, this is one of the best looking, fun loving, intelligent and sophisticated couples I have ever photographed; but then maybe I’m slightly biased as this is my son Robert and his girlfriend Emma. Rob asked me if I would take some photographs of Emma and him, He didn’t want to pay for the privilege and he didn’t want to spend a long time doing it. He actually scored well on both points as it didn’t cost him a thing and we did the whole shoot in about 15 – 20 minutes, (although I did take time to set up the studio beforehand). They were both very impressed with the outcome and I think they are pretty cool too.

On Wednesday evening (9th December) the annual torchlight procession and carol service was held in Halstead. This is an extremely popular event with people carrying ‘real flame’ torches from the memorial at the top of the High Street down to the public gardens where a carol service was then held. The service was led by Rev John Blore and Halstead mayor David Hume.

The night was extremely well attended with well over a 1000 people taking part. From babies and toddlers to parents and grandparents they were all there enjoying the festive spirit.

Prior to the event Halstead Town Council commissioned me to document the procession for use on their website, I was also commissioned by the Newsquest Media Group to photograph the event for images to be used in local newspapers. Ten of these images have since been used on a double page spread in the Halstead Gazette.
