As we’re nearly at the end of 2016 I thought I’d take a look back at the past year, so below are my favourite 16 images of the year. For Over in a Flash 2016 started with a fantastic pet portrait session with Mabli and Olive in St. Asaph and ended with the brilliant portrait session with the Stuart family. Read more
Towards the end of January I had the pleasure of doing a pet portrait session with awesome Schnauzers, Mabli and Olive. I met their owner, Ben, for an early morning walk along the River Elwy in St. Asaph. It was a lovely sunny day and I really couldn’t have asked for better conditions for a late January portrait session.
2015 represented the first full year of Over in a Flash Photography, and what a great year it’s been!
First of all I’d like to thank everyone who’s allowed me to spend time with them to take their portraits. I’ve met some lovely families and some fantastic pets and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every single shoot. I look forward to a great 2016, filled with even more awesome families, couples and pets.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
Ido is my wife’s Nonno’s (Grandad – he’s Italian) black labrador. He’s a really fun dog who loves a good run around…and run around he definitely did! We went for a walk around the Middle Common in Buckley and it was easy to get some great shots of Ido, especially with Laura’s brother Chris putting in the hard work for many of the action shots.
Last week we went for a walk around Penyffordd with Pepper and her owner Chris. Pepper’s a brilliant Jack Russell with loads of playful energy – the only issue was trying to keep her in my viewfinder during her regular sprint bursts! It’s safe to say we all deserved a cuppa when we got back. It was a lovely mild day for a photo session and I think we got some really great shots of Pepper. It was nice and easy to capture her lively personality. The picture of dog and owner is definitely one of my favourites though.
Kate the Chihuahua’s dog photography session was definitely a stern test for my knees! We met at Wepre Park and I couldn’t quite believe how tiny she was. However, what she lacked in size she certainly made up for in vocal volume! She’s one fearless little dog, packed full of personality and character and was a joy to photograph. She had some great moments while we were on our walk and I think that shows in the variety of pictures we came out with.
A few weeks ago I met up with Rachael and Adam to do a photography session with Del the Rottweiler. We met at Wepre Park and took a stroll up the old golf course in the morning sun. The day started out extremely foggy with Rachael texting me her concern that she’d woken up in a cloud. However the fog lifted just in time to get some awesome shots of Del. He’s a fantastic dog with a really calm personality – he really is a gentle giant!
