We went to the SWPP exhibition in Hammersmith London at the Novotel Hotel. Loads of great infomation there. I could have spent thousands. I was really after i new computer and monitor as i am looking to employ staff. I was thinking about getting a LaCie screen but was advised that the NEC Spectra View is better. Looking at £1119.00 per screen. I was also looking at a new Mac Pro 2.8 2xquad core intel Xeon Harpertown about £1800.00. great computer. I also brought a Cloud dome flash diffuser for my flash head Nikon SB-800. I brought back loads of info regarding wedding albums and art story books as i am going to renew my albums. A good day out!!!!!
Here is a map to my studio.
TAKE A.12 TOWARDS ROMFORD. GO OVER 2 SETS OF MAIN LIGHTS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO GALLOWS CORNER ROUNDABOUT WHERE YOU GO RIGHT(3rd EXIT) AT THE NEXT SET OF LIGHTS GO RIGHT. TO MINI-ROUNDABOUT WHERE YOU GO STRAIGHT OVER AND THAT IS MY ROAD.
GET TO GANTS HILL ROUNDABOUT IN ILFORD. TAKE THE A.12 TOWARDS ROMFORD. GO STRAIGHT ACROSS THE LIGHTS WHEN YOU GET TO CHADWELL HEATH - ‘MODY DICK PUB’ ON THE RIGHT OF THOSE LIGHTS. AFTER MOBY DICK AT THE SECOND SET OF LIGHTS GO LEFT. AS THE ROAD FORKS LEFT YOU GO RIGHT. MY ROAD IS THE 3rd LEFT.
My studio is opposite Lawns park at the top of the hill by the mini roundabout, there is a willow tree on the front lawn and your welcome to park on the drive.
Wow! this year is going so fast, it seems to be flying by and the wedding season is here again. It is a great time time be getting married, with all the flowers in bloom makes for a great back drop for photography. I photographed a wedding last weekend in Little Burstead near Billericay in Essex and the church was on the side of a big field of yellow field of rape, It looked lovely. Is great to photograph weddings when the sun is out but it does create shadows and you unless you are careful the photos will come out with not very nice shadows under their eyes of the people you are photographing. Although i have been a photographer for 18 years i am proud to say it has only rained at approx 5 weddings….. i can hardly believe it myself!.
See you soon, Ross Holding
