When I was home in Stoke for the weekend I photographed Fiona, I kept practising with the ranger flash whilst I had it. As the weather was bad in Stoke over that weekend, I wanted to get some photographs taken with the gear whilst I had it. Just because I couldn’t shoot for the project doesn’t mean I can’t get some shots for my own portfolio whilst I have it. May as well take advantage of the fact I have the equipment.

The main batch of shots I produced were actually in my house in the room I stay in when I’m home. the room has white walls and therefore were ideal to photograph in. It’s a small room so composition was restrained but I think I managed to get some decent shots of Benji. I really wouldn’t mind being a rock photographer and I saw some shots of Keith Richards by Ross Halfin taken in this style….against a white wall in B/W.

The outdoor shot was taken at our local landmark, Mow Cop castle. It was icy as hell up there and very bloody cold but we managed to get some decent shots…before Benji almost smashed my vintage EKO twelve string on the ice…
