Yesterday I participated in the London leg of flickr’s latest global photowalk called “Howdy Stranger”

To quote flickr; “We want to celebrate the stranger-portrait tradition on Flickr by encouraging you all to making the next global day of Flickr photowalks all about breaking down the social barriers keeping you from the people around you.”

It is possible that you might be reading this because you were one of the “strangers” (a temporary title) who connected with me and granted your permission to be photographed.

There are two sets of photographs available to view in my flickr photostream. They can be found here:

Howdy Stranger and Howdy Stranger with my Banana Phone

It was great to meet you all!

Thank you,

Stephen

London Fashion Shoot with Canon CPS+

I guess that you are familiar with the idea that the more we learn the more we realise how little we know? This obviously applies to many aspects of our lives. Over the years I have trained, read, and experienced a lot that I bring to my photography for clients. However, there is always more to learn about the interpersonal, technical and aesthetic aspects of the art and science of photography. This important realisation is one of the many reasons that I avoid sitting on my laurels and am grateful to be a member of CPS (Canon Professional Services). They provide opportunities to explore different aspects of professional photography including working exposure to other professional photographers. s

Yesterday was one such opportunity to continue my professional development journey and improve what I can do for you.  We learned a range of skills and considerations including the aspects of planning, preparing and professionally delivering a high level fashion photoshoot. It was a great example of how leadership and teamwork can come together to produce some beautiful, emotional and high calibre professional photography. The four photographs in this short article are evidence of that.

If you already know me personally and have experienced my photography on a shoot with you, you will already know that I do my best to bring a range of skills, knowledge and abilities to our photoshoot. Of course, if you don’t know me, please do not take my word for it because you are cordially invited to enjoy the experience for yourself. Why wouldn’t you?
