King of the Mountain

Key Image Photographers decided to have a bit of a change from photographing portraits this weekend and indulged in some fun photographing the British Super Bikes Championship at Cadwell Park on Bank Holiday Monday. As usual I met some very interesting people. Some fans from Australia who had travelled to support fellow Aussie rider Josh Brookes and some locals from Market Rasen who had been attending the BSB for over 20 years. I also managed to capture some amazing shots of riders taking on The Mountain, airbourne.

But the highlight of my day had to be a surprise fly over by a spitfire and Lancaster Bomber plane. For those few minutes in time I reverted to being a 5 year old and excitedly jumped up and down in between photographs. It was truly amazing to see the machines who were flown by brave men who fought for our freedom flying in formation across Cadwell Park.




Wedding day laughter!

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable and important days of your life…Key Image Photographers believes that your photography should reflect that and be a fun and memorable part of your day as well.

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph Sarah and Lee’s wedding. I always find it an honour to photograph weddings as I get to share in two people’s special day. I had great fun with Sarah and Lee as the photographs below show! I am really excited about them receiving an album of their final images.

Things to do in the school holidays lesson 1

First week of the school holidays is over for most children and more importantly parents! I understand how demanding and exhausting it is to constantly find ways to entertain your children’s endless energy. Working as a primary school teacher for 5 years at various schools throughout Wakefield and Leeds I gained plenty of experience at channelling the energy of children and it’s not an easy task! How many photographers can say that they are qualified teachers?

So lesson 1, how to entertain your children in the school holidays, why not fetch them to Key Image Photographers and we will go play hide and seek in a field full of corn? I guarantee they will have a brilliant time, will be absolutely exhausted and you will have some
amazing photographs of your special day! All you have to do is book, turn up, sit back and I will do the rest. A priceless investment! Visit Key Image Photographers for more information and contact me using the contact form!


Special moments freeze framed in time…..

I keep mentioning that Key Image’s speciality is capturing special moments in time and I evidenced this recently. A photo shoot should be about having fun and showing the unique and special interaction between human beings. Everyone interacts differently, you may find that one family will be all hugs, another would not feel comfortable with tactile poses. Therefore, it is important that your photographer captures the unique ways that your family interact.

During a recent photoshoot with Nick and his mum they did not seem comfortable in huggy poses but they had a very sutle way of interacting…..Nick didn’t let go of his mums hand as she was very nervous. They were delighted with the photograph below which showed the closeness of their relationship in a very special way. Image

Fun in the sun!

I love being outside, especially at this time of the year. While some days have been a little less summer and more monsoon season I was lucky enough to jump outside recently between rain showers and capture some wonderful photographs of Archie and Oliver.

The best thing about working outside for this photoshoot is that Oliver is on the Autistic spectrum. A photo shoot in the studio was just not going to work, I knew as soon as I met him that it would be a sensory overload. I am lucky enough to have had a lot of experience working with both children and adults who have Autism or Aspergers through my previous employment within the education system. As soon as we got outside and into the natural environment Oliver came into his own and began to calm down and interact with his environment.

The photo shoot was an absolute joy and as you can see from the photographs the boys were both lost in the moment!
