Portrait photography – Rev John Blore St Andrew’s Church Halstead.
I was recently asked to take some portrait photographs of the Rev John Blore who was retiring from his role at St Andrews Church in Halstead. I have known John for a number of years and in fact he has conducted a number of weddings at the church when I have been the photographer, he’s a really nice guy.
John was not just retiring from the church; he was also retiring from the ministry altogether, so it was a major turning point in his life. It was probably a few weeks before he retired that he realised that during all the years he had been in his role he hadn’t really got many, if any, photographs of himself. Hence he asked me if I could take some to mark the occasion and also to remind him of the memorable times he had spent at Halstead.
We met at the church one weekday morning and worked together to produce a small selection / collection of different images incorporating different aspects of the church. Some taken outside in natural light and others inside more dramatic portraits enhanced by a touch of off camera flash.
John has now retired and moved to live in rural Norfolk, together with his collection of portraits of course; I wish him and his wife, Jane a long and happy retirement.
