First Commission

Just completed my first commission; which was for a number of portraits of 3 teenage children of a family friend. The customer was very happy about the results and said that she would be happy to come back to me in the future.

The difficult part was to make every comfortable and to get natural experessions. I used natural light and a bounced flash.

Trip to Africa

Back safely from my trip across SW Africa which covered over 4,000 Kms. Some of the photographs are on Flickr I will put more on as I work my way through them. I am impressed with my Canon kit, the camera and lenses survived 40+ degrees, dust and vibration.
