Naming/Tree Planting Ceremony

Had a great day shooting a naming/tree planting ceremony yesterday.  The event was held at Rocks East Woodlands just outside of Bath.  The weather blessed us with a truly beautiful day bookended by very rainy days!

The ceremony was in honor of baby Merryn and was obviously an emotional day that I thouroughly enjoyed capturing for Merryn’s parents Vicky & Toby.  Watch the portfolio page for some photos from this event.

Frome Local Legends

Well the winners of the local competition ‘Frome Local Legends’ was won by the inimitable ‘The Wheel of Four Tunes’ chaps.  They truly are local legends in their own spandex pants!!

After winning there were billboards placed up around Frome so they got in touch with lenssniper and asked me to do an informal shoot of them romping around in their spandex in reaction to the billboards.

The shoot was hilarious … photos to follow in the portfolio!

New Photos of Bob Marley
