It’s been a lovely start to the year. Firstly I had a week off and had a wonderful couple of days in the Lake District. We were so lucky to get clear skies and it was great to be able to photograph some landscapes for a change! Whilst I was there I came across the fantastic gallery and workshop in Kendal belonging to photographer Steven Taylor. He specialises in making beautiful black and white prints from film negatives and runs workshops for anyone wanting to learn more about film photography and printing in the darkroom.

I’ve also taken my first family portraits of 2017. I had the pleasure of spending the morning with this lovely family taking some relaxed and fun shots in their home.
