Baptism Celebration Party in Colchester.

I get asked to photograph all sorts of family events, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, especially special birthdays such as 50th, 65th, 80th 100th, engagement parties and also christenings and baptisms etc.

On this occasion I was asked to photograph an after baptism party at Firstsite in Colchester. They didn’t actually want me to attend the baptism itself but wanted lots of nice fun family shots afterwards.

It was such a fantastic assignment to do, it was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and people were enjoying themselves both inside and out.  It was clearly an enjoyable time for all and it was a huge pleasure for me to capture and preserve that special occasion for them.

 Some kind words.

(A review from Barry who hired me to take the photographs)

‘I hired Tony to photograph my daughters post christening party and just asked him to capture a nice range of different photographs.

He has a very calm manner and was excellent with our guests; nothing was too much of a problem for him.

He has an exceptional photographic eye was very skilled at capturing some amazing off guard moments. He also produced some very arty pictures which I wouldn’t really expect from an event of this nature.

He was very patient and good with the children and has captured my son’s personality perfectly.

My guests all warmed to Tony, he was more than happy to go that extra mile and I cannot recommend him highly enough.’

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.
