Pete and I decided to have our own little coffee morning and share some insight into what great big nerds we are whilst also having a little mutter about Movember and begging for more money.

Please like, subscribe and let us know what you think,

We think we’re slowly getting better.

Thanks again

I’ve continued being useless at sharing with you and for that I apologise, it’s been a busy couple of months, outside of my usual parenting duties, I’ve shot a wedding which I will be sharing some pictures from with you soon as well as been on holiday to Majorca a small Spanish island in the Mediterranean so I thought that today I’d share a couple of holiday pictures and also a couple of my beloved dog and boys.

In other news I have managed to order myself a shiny new camera (Canon EOS 6D for those of you who care) which will hopefully begin paying for itself as I pick up a few more paying jobs. It is something I have wanted to do for a long time because as much as I love my old Canon EOS 10D she’s really just not up to the job of taking quality pictures in anything less than ideal light conditions and as I am marketing myself to shoot weddings and other portraiture I want to be able to deliver the highest quality final product to my customers.

Needless to say I am very excited and promise to share my thoughts on it (I haven’t decided if it will be a boy or girl yet) as soon as it arrives. I went along with ordering from a smaller company knowing it would take longer to get to me because they offered the cheapest deal I could find.

I have also invested in current copies of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop

CRW_4666 We drove around for ages trying to find this monastery, we’re not even entirely sure that this was it or just the church the monks use but it was most definitely closed to the public.

Another day we decided to drive down to Cala de Sa Calobra, the road is absolutely incredible rising to almost 700 metres and then dropping back down to sea level over a space of just 12 kilometres . I unfortunately was concentrating on the  driving so didn’t get any shots of the road (Mrs BC had her eyes most firmly closed for most of the drive and refused point-blank to take the camera) but watch this video I found of youtube to get an idea of what it’s like.

obviously the video isn’t mine so please respect the owners copy right.

At the bottom it is very beautiful but the restaurants are all very expensive and certainly the one we chose was rubbish. The beach is also very beautiful, but not ideal for kids with large pebbles and a quick drop off as opposed to your typical white sandy beaches.

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed this little update and as I always do I promise to stop being so rubbish at letting you know what’s going on in the world of Mr Bunny Chow and family

I was given a fantastic opportunity over the weekend to shoot some test make-up and costumes for a local film project.

I think I must have done a good job because they’ve asked me back to do some more shoots for them in the future and possibly even behind the scenes stuff when they begin filming.

I can’t go into too much detail at the moment as no dates have been finalised and no rates agreed other than that I’m cheap.

I hope you like this selected out take of images from Saturday.

Has it really been over a month since I last shared something with you?

Seriously I am a bad bad blogger.

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet too as I just wanted to tell you about a fantastic novel I read recently by one of my blogging friends TBM. She was kind enough to send me a preview copy but you can download your’s from this link.

TBMwomanlost

It’s essentially a romance novel and if I’m honest I’m not a great reader or lover of general chick lit, but because it was written by a friend I dived right in and lo and behold there I was at 3 am emailing her about how much I’d loved it and wrapped up in the whole thing. Seriously this is not your usual chick lit, this has steamy lesbian romps, it has humour it has relationship stuff that red-blooded males can relate to alongside beautiful romance and sweetness.

Please Support TBM and buy this book.

I promise I’ll be back soon (maybe even later today) with some pretty pictures from a recent photo shoot.

Calling all photographers,

for a long time now I’ve followed a wonderful blog with a huger readership called PhotoBoto’s, they were supporters of this very blog from the very early days and were even kind enough to feature one of my shots http://www.photobotos.com/my-leopard/ a little while back.

They are currently reaching out to their readership to go forth and seek out other photographers to share their shots and their stories with them to feature. So without further ado, I implore you my readers to dig through your archives and submit a photograph to them via this link http://www.photobotos.com/submit-a-photo/

I can’t promise you that your fortune will be made, but a little extra exposure (do you get the pun, do you, do you?) can’t hurt.

I promise I will get around to sharing some of my photography with you again soon, It’s been building up and up so I’ll just chuck in a quick one from our recent holiday.

Well the amazing news is that I’ve been offered the opportunity to exhibit some of my photography at a local gallery.  Unfortunately there are costs involved in this honour and I need to weigh them up – the obvious costs being printing and framing, but I also need to hire the wall space (the lowest cost being a  6′ x 6′ area of wall) which has a two-week minimum hire charge.

My ego says hire the whole hall, print hundreds of pictures, leave them for six months and you’ll be a millionaire by then.  The reality is more like hire one 6′ x 6′ area for a month to six weeks and print out six strong images.

But how do I decide which pictures? Am I going to sell any of them?  How much will people be willing to spend on them? How much do I spend on framing?

This my dear friends of the blogosphere is where I am seeking your help…..

Please look through the pictures and let me have your comments on any or all of the following:
* which six prints I should go with;
* whether you would have them on your wall;
* how much would you be willing to pay for a framed copy of approx 10″x 8″ inches;
* should I go with a theme, wildlife as a whole/owls/big cats/Brighton etc. etc. etc.?

I need to make some decisions in the next fortnight so that’s how long I’ll keep the initial run open for. Don’t forget to mention which print number you’d like as your prize.

P.S. I reserve the right to ignore all advice and take more pretty pictures between now and when the exhibition happens.
