Nottingham

A Snowy Day

As I’ve mentioned a few times photography is not just a job to me its my passion and I enjoy doing it in my spare time as much as I do for work! One of my favourite aspects of it is going out into the country side and capturing the natural beauty, so when some snow had settled in the local area I had to go and explore.

I visited Attenborough Nature Reserve and it was like a beautiful Winter wonderland, So here’s a few images from my day exploring this stunning scenery. It’s so important that we take time for ourselves and do what we love!

Beat the Street's!

Yesterday was Nottingham’s Beat the Street’s music festival, which is an event where local Nottingham musicians play in venues across the city to help raise money for the Framework Charity which is in aid of helping homeless people, every penny raised goes to this charity!

It’s for such a good cause, Living in a city I see more and more homeless people each day. I volunteer to photograph this day for DHP to document the event to help raise awareness and funds for framework.

It’s such a fun event and everyone buying a ticket, working or volunteering their time to make the event a success makes me proud of my city!

So here’s a few photos of the bands from the Day :)

Nottingham's Beat The Streets Festival!

I was one of the photographers for the DHP company, at the Nottingham festival called Beat the Streets, which is a music festival that raises money for the Framework charity which helps homeless people.

It was a great day and I got to photograph some amazing bands and had a lot of fun too.

In the end, they raised £100,000 for the charity! It was great to be involved in the day and to support the good cause.

Here are a few photos I took on the day more can be seen on the event page.

The Deers

I thought it would be nice to have a little adventure in the countryside to see what nature I could snap!

I really wanted to capture some photography of Deers in their habitat, so made this my mission for the day! I wondered around Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, as I knew this was home to many Deers but it seemed they were nowhere to be seen on the park.

But they where soon spotted in the golf course near the park, this raised a bit of a quest for me as I couldn't shoot in the golf course. So I had to try and capture my photos from the sidelines behind the fence and just hope a Deer would wonder insight, after much searching and waiting around I finally found a beautiful young buck with many Doe! 

They are such amazing creatures, after I got the photos, I couldn't help just standing and watching them graze.

While wondering the park looking for deer, I thought id visit the miniature world with my macro lens, I found a few water droplets on a blade of grass which I thought looked interesting, I love photographing with a macro lens it shows the tiny details of beauty usually unseen by the human eye!
