A Very Special Thank You

To Paul Goode Photography

Hello there,

This weekend saw me shooting the wedding of Simonie and Mitchell – (see below)

If your a regular to my blog you will know I generally work with an assistant / second shooter and its because of the people I work with that I feel I can create the kinds of images my clients seem to love and want.  Well this week Helen was not able to make it and after putting into practice my backup procedures I am very happy to say that Paul jumped into to help me out.

Paul (Paul Goode) from Paul Goode Photography – http://www.paulgoodephotography.co.uk is based in Sutton Coldfield and is a very talented wedding & portrait photographer in his own right.

Although I am now fully booked myself  for 2011 I know Paul has a few slots left and I have no hesitation at all in recommending him.

Paul spent the morning with the boys while I spent the morning with the girls then we teamed up at the church to provide amazing coverage of Simonie and Mitchell’s big day which carried on to Hampton Manor for the reception.  Paul continued to second shoot and also assisted me with lighting etc for the bridal portraits and some of my signature images.

I know Paul probably wont enjoy this photo but I do try to capture photos of my assistants / second shooters working throughout the day however this was the the only photos I managed to capture of Paul this Saturday since the wedding was so FULL ON and we worked our socks off.

so for the record – THANKS PAUL – your my hero and you helped make me look good !

Hey – Its Me !

Hello there,

I LOVE taking photos but I HATE having the camera turned on myself !

I often hear people say to me, Oh I dont like  having my photo taken and I can relate to that – I think thats why I enjoy the Documentary and reportage style of photography.

So I was shooting the wedding of Claire and Nick and Nikki (My Wife) was my assistant for the day – well whenever we work together she always manages to grab a photo of me.

So if you wondered what I look like – wonder no more, here I am.

Bridal Boudoir / Super Sexy Wedding Photos !

Birmingham & Worcestershire Boudoir Photography

Smoking hot wedding photos by David Purslow

.
Okay, Last week saw me at a photo shooting day – this was not a workshop, there was no training involved, this was just a day to practice and get myself back into the swing of creative lighting as wedding season is fast approaching.

The basic idea was that 10 photographers got together with 1 couple, 5 female models, a stunning venue and some beautiful wedding dresses – we had an hour per couple / model and got to shoot whatever we liked.  We set up our own lights, picked rooms (or church) and just had a great day.

Several of the models were ones I had worked with before but there were several new ones also.

I like to describe my style as – are you ready for it – a mixture of Fashion, Reportage, Contemporary, Documentary and just down right amazing wedding photography. – I wanted to play with strong lighting from portable light sources – the kind of thing I carry at weddings.  I wanted dramatic images, sexy images, beautiful looking brides, rugged looking groom shots, beautiful couple shots and soldering hot bridal boudoir shots.

Here are some of the results.

Well I hope you like these,  I am looking at introducing this kind of lighting throughout my weddings over the next 12 months or so – the subject matter may change slightly as ‘real brides’ may not play up to the camera as much as some of the models seen here however if you want a beautiful, sexy bridal potrait session – this should wet your apatite so give me a bell and lets chat about it.

We are also opening a Photo Studio Between Kidderminster and Worcester in the next few weeks – we will be offering all kinds of  portraits including bridal boudoir photography.

Thanks for stopping by

Two in a row – Another award winning wedding photo !

Wow – where does the time fly ?

I seems only a couple of week ago I blogged about winning an award on the Drama Free Photography website.

As a professional photographer I think its important to constantly challenge yourself and there is no better way for a photographer to do this than entering competitions.  Being judged by ones piers has always been the best way for one to grow in any profession.  As a member of the PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS only Drama Free Photography Forum –  a collection of professional photographers from all over the world, whos membership is made up with members of such photography society’s as   The MPA – The Master Photographers Association, The SWPP – The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers,  The ISPWP – The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, The AG|WPJA The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and many many  more I enter their monthly image competitions.

February sees major changes to the competition, mainly an anonymous team of judges, each awarding marks for differing aspects of the submitted images, two submission allowed each month and the winning categories being, Gold, Silver and Bronze, to achieve Gold you need to amass more than 80 points from the judges.

I am pleased to say one of my two images submitted this month won a Bronze award.

This is the image in question

The image is from the wedding of Isabel and Phil – The wedding took place in Codsall nr Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

If you’re a professional photographer and would like a friendly, honest forum to get good advice about your work and your business, then click on the banner below and apply for membership. Please note that the gold winners have their images shown on the slideshow, so if at work or if easily offended by nudity (artistic nudity, that is!), then maybe shield your screen from others, as one of this month’s gold winners contains just that!
