As we reach the end of year it is time to put some highlights of 2019 from my photography year together.

In January I worked with Stephanie Dubois a uk based freelance model. Stephaine had been on my list of models I want to work with for a while. So it was good to get to work with her.

Highlights of 2019 images:

January also gave me a chance to shoot some Ski racing in the Ski resort of Tignes. The European Alpine skiing cup was taking place the week we were there. Unfortuately the final parallel slalom races took place in heavy snow. So not easy conditions for the racers or photograhers.

I also got a visit to the Black country living museum in Dudley which gave the chance for a few location portraits using natural light.

Walters wardrode productions, opened it doors with two events which I attended. One in April and the other in early October, both of which were great. Good models and high class fashion designer outfits to shoot in fantastic locations.
