Leanne & Nathan 20th January 2018

I photographed the wedding of Leanne & Nathan on a very grey January day. The couple were married at the Reading Registry office which really is a lovely venue, even though the weather wasn’t great we had such a fun day and the couple were so happy with their images.

All the photography was with my Fuji equipment i use a mix of reportage and some posed work it gives a real lifestyle experience for the bride and groom -just contact me to find out more!

Sadly due to ill health I will not offer any more wedding photography

They held their reception at the Moat House Reading

Dear Mark,
Nathan and I can not thank you enough for all your hard work. You not only captured the most beautiful, natural moments of our day but you worked so professionally and it was honestly so much fun to have you share our day with us!

You are so talented at what you do and we couldn’t be more pleased with our choice of photographer. Despite the weather letting us down, you would never be able to tell looking at our pictures. They are remarkable. You made the best set ups for us indoors with no fuss, stress or trouble. Not once did we feel worried about the pictures, you had everything under control and knew exactly what you were doing which allowed us to truly enjoy every aspect of our day.

Thank you so much!

From Mr and Mrs Harvey

London 

I travelled up to London and took this quick shot of Canary Wharf whilst there with my Fuji X70

I love the BW tones with this city view

Fuji X70 a little powerhouse!

Late last year i purchased the Fuji X70 as a camera that i can take with me everywhere i go.

The last couple of days the skys here have been amazing and this little powehouse of a camera really shines when you pair it with the wide angle adaptor.

The image below was taken just before sunset deep on a winters day……….

Captain’s shoot at Hazlemere Golf Club

I have recently been appointed as preferred photographer for the Hazlemere Golf Club near to High Wycombe.

They asked me to do a head shot session of their committee members and their new captain’s appointment’s.

I used a location set up technique to provide studio quality images for them. I decided to make the background darker to give a slightly more corporate and modern look to the final images.

For the photography minded I used a softbox on a boom stand with a grid above each sitter and a small pop of flash with another grid as a hair light to give some separation.

All shot on a Fuji XPro 2 with a 35 mm F1.4 an extremely sharp set up, I have been working with Fuji X cameras now for over five years after leaving Canon DSLRs and in truth I have never looked back.

Street shoot with Paula

I did a street strobist shoot with a model friend of mine. We worked at the rivers edge near Maidenhead.

I love doing strobist off camera flash work!

I am happy with the results

If you ever want the same done just email me markmk1photography@gmail.com

For the photography minded I used an Xpro1 and a 35mm f1.4 along with a Godox off camera flash….

Review of Trec Pak Peli 1510 interior

It is said “that photography is really the pursuit of the perfect bag”.

This is never truer than my own experiences, I have been through various bags and cases in my lifetime of photography and whilst some seemed to work many didn’t.

Around three weeks ago I decided to purchase a Peli 1510 to house all my photography equipment this was delivered with the standard padding sold with the case and the usual fare of Velcro and padding etc. Whilst this seemed to provide some protection for my equipment it really wasn’t the solution for what is a sturdy strong Peli case, the padded inserts didn’t stand up very well and it was very difficult to adjust any size area to re design the case for other equipment.

Below shows my Peli 1510 loaded up with the standard Velcro arrangement, you can see the sides were sagging and slightly misshapen, this was after two weeks and hardly any use!

 

 

I looked around on the internet and then read and review of the Trek Pak system from the USA it seemed such a simple idea but then sometimes the best usually are!
It consists of a series of foam panels with a liner of tubes these form the walls of the bag liner, these are held together with u shaped pins linking one panel to the next – endless layouts!

It took a few attempts to work out the best system for my kit; but as you can see below the whole thing looks just a whole lot more professional and secure. My kit had pre-cut walls for the case and inserts to fix in a multitude of layouts.
The quality is second to none and the ease of adding new or different kit to the case now takes seconds and it looks and feels a lot better.
The kit for the Peli can be found here at www.trekpak.com

Dog Photography in Leafy Buckinghamshire

I am often trying out new equipment on my GSD Indi

Today we ventured deep into the woods in Buckinghamshire where I live to try out the new flash system again, it was a successful venture as I am thinking about offering Dog Photography in Buckinghamshire as part of my photography services.
