A Sunday Kind of Love – Photo Night Live

This week I was asked to take part in Photo Night Live, a weekly web show all about photography (duh..) and making your business work for you. This week’s topic was ‘Blogging 101 – Showcasing your life online’ and I was interviewed by Ross Dean, alongside emerging photographer Ali Lovegrove, about our experiences.

I really hope some of the things I say can help you. Looking back, I do wonder if what I’m saying actually makes any sense (!) but I really do love sharing my knowledge of the medium that I adore so much.

You can check out Photo Night Live every Friday from 7pm (GMT). If you would like to be considered for a future show, please drop an email to info@rossdeanphotography.com

Ali & I will be doing a part two to this interview as my next video blog. So if you have any further blogging questions then send them my way by next Thursday (31st March) and we’ll try and include as may as possible when we meet (in real life this time).

Photo Professional

I took a slightly different approach to this month’s article in the new look Photo Pro (renamed Photo Professional) Magazine. I used the blogging example of my girls at Made u Look Photography but made the article more of a selection of tips and tricks to make your photography blog really stand out. Do you like the new magazine layout and my new style of article?

WEDDING Magazine

Little hats, birdcage veils, flower wreaths, crowns…there’s more to bridal headwear than the traditional veil you know. This month I shared some of my favourite ‘crowning glory’ moments with the readers of WEDDING Magazine.

Under the Spotlight – Night Owl Paper Goods

Established in 2004 by graphic designers Jennifer Tatham and Alan Henderson, Night Owl Paper Goods is a company dedicated to creating handmade letterpress cards and eco-chic wooden goodies in a style they like to call ‘modern yet folksy.’  “We are very fortunate to have created a company and product line that combines everything we love,” they told me. “Design + printing + writing + paper + wood + nature + the environment + friends + family. What a hoot!”

Each piece is custom printed on sustainably-harvested birch wood. The envelopes they use are recycled and contain 30-100% post-consumer waste and all their products are handmade in USA. So, whether you’re taking steps towards creating a green wedding or you’re looking to set yourself apart from the crowd, nothing makes a statement like real wood wedding stationery. Their products are quite simply perfect for the eco-conscious Rock n Roll Bride!

Magpie Vintage Launch The Rose Collection…and I Get on a Horse & Jump on a Trampoline to Celebrate!

I sneak peeked this shoot back in February but I had to wait until now to share the full thing…sorry to keep you all waiting, it was hard for me too!

I was asked by Lisa & Tania, the vintage jewellery aficionados behind  Magpie Vintage if I’d like to model for their latest campaign – the launch of their brand new clothing line. Needless to say I didn’t need much convincing, even when they told me I had to get on a horse!

The Rose Collection will be officially launched in September 2011. Each each item will be a one off – a genuine piece of vintage clothing from the 1930’s-1960’s, reworked and quirked with the famous  Magpie Vintage twist.
