Greetings to all my loyal friends and followers, I thought that I would take a little time out to share a few things with you.
My new camera (Canon EOS 6D for those of you not paying attention) has finally arrived, I can’t recommend that you stay further away from www.valuebasket.com , yes I got a fantastic deal but their customer service is non existent and their lead times in today’s world are just unacceptable, especially seeing as they felt the need to lie to me about them on a regular basis. I could have dealt with a three week lead time if I’d been told that’s how long it was going to take at the point of order, instead it began at 3-5 days then 7-10 days then 7-10 working days, then in the next few days with none of their staff having the first idea what was actually going on. Still I have my baby and I’ve named him Luke, he is an ugly baby, but boy oh boy does he take some purdy pictures.
As I am now taking my photography more seriously as a business I was having a difficult time explaining the brand behind Mr Bunny Chow, and whilst Mr Bunny Chow is going nowhere I am now going back to my roots as a blogger on these pages and have re-branded my Facebook page to my real name www.facebook.com/robtwigwood and also launched a very simple professional site www.robtwigwood.com please check them out and let me know what you think.
Since Luke arrived I’ve been lucky enough to go out on two occasions with Lee from Lenses of Croydon and Inner Circle Photography, last weekend we went into London to look at the Taylor Wessing Portrait Exhibition in the National Portrait Gallery followed by a wander around Borough Market. This was definitely a learning process for me, I adore the way that Luke’s depth of field is super shallow in comparison to my experiences on a crop frame camera, I am not going to get too geeky on you here but I definitely need to be super careful not to over use this. It is also incredible how much clearer photo’s are at much higher ISO’s than my older camera. I am a very happy boy.
This Saturday Lee and I again ventured into London to go on a photowalk with the internationally infamous Australian Photographer and Youtube celebrity Matt Granger. The walk was pretty fun and it was great to meet so many like minded photographers, although as it was super busy we didn’t get as much time to pick Matt’s brain as we would have liked, just observing the way in which he interacts with people was fascinating. I managed to pick up a few shots that I was really happy with. While I’m here I’d like to highlight the http://www.savethesouthbank.com/ website, as I passionately believe that this park is culturally important to London and would hate for it to disappear.
So what next for me and Mr Bunny Chow?
I am currently taking bookings for next years wedding season so please do put me in touch with anyone getting married, having babies or doing anything else they might want photographing, I believe my rates are highly competitive and I’ll always do my best to work within any budget.
Hope you are all well
Mr Bunny Chow (aka Rob)
