Fleetwood Lifeboat Day 2017

One event in the year that I always look forward to attending is the Lifeboat Day at Fleetwood. Sadly last year I was unable to attend due to other commitments that were on the same day, this also meant that I would be missing the first showing of the new Fleetwood Lifeboat the Kenneth James Pierpoint. The Kenneth James Pierpoint replaced the William Street which arrived in Fleetwood in 1989 and was retired in August 2016 after 27 years of service. So with all that said I was very happy that I could make it to the 2017 event and I was excited to get some photos of the New Fleetwood V[...]

Commercial Shoot - No Angel Boutique

I was contacted by Caroline of No Angel Boutique in Cleveleys about the possibility of me photographing some of her clothing range for her new shop. After meeting to discuss what Caroline was looking for we agreed to go ahead and we set a date for the shoot. The shoot I feel was a success and we managed to photograph the 8 outfits for the shops website. We photographed each item until both Caroline and myself was happy with the detail, pose and lighting before moving on to the next outfit. I really wanted to make sure that I captured a lot of detail in the photos from head to toe so that[...]

Commercial Shoot – Glazey Days

Glazey Days was established in 2007 and until recently the business was located on the Esplanade in Fleetwood. In 2016, Glazey Days started work on renovating a new premises located in a prime position next door to The North Euston Hotel and still only a stones throw away from the beach. The new premises is far larger than that of the older building which has definitely allowed the company to expand and offer much more to their ever growing customer base. Yesterday, the 4th February 2017, I was given the opportunity to photograph the new Party Room. There was an 8th birthday party ta[...]
