Gone Global shoot at Kings Weston House

01.
Here’s a bit of fun for you. I was asked to give guidance and to be on hand with lighting kit for a fully styled themed shoot. This is not my usual thing and I had to make sure I was not setting myself up to fail. Anyway to cut a long story short, creative, talented photographers both professional and amateur crafted wonderful pictures from the scenes conceived by Sue Fyfe Williams. Here are a few of my shots that I grabbed at various times throughout the day

  1. Superb shots with a camera that’s really beginning to interest me… oh and the Lupolux lights… amazing… can I become your film ambassador for them? No? Oh Damien. Seriously though, fabulous work as ever. Kindest, Neale

  2. Oh my! As usual, stunning gallery. Amazing craft skills. But tell me: how big would you print these Fuji marvelous portraits? Currently shooting D800, I’m so afraid having to “downsize”. Print mostly A3+ (rarely 20″x30″) size but also love to have nice 2560×1440 wallpapers on my computer screen. Thanks!

  3. Hi Neale, Thank you for your kind words.Your website looks fab by the way – you know that so I’m not sure why I just wrote that. Haha

    Best, Damien.

  4. Hi Eric,

    Thank you for your compliments. These images could go bill board size. The detail is amazing, certainly enough for big prints and double page spreads in magazines. 40″ x 30″ would be a breeze :) I’ve just sold my 22mp Canon 5D2 because I never need it anymore.

    Kind regards,

    Damien.

  5. How random, just looking through your blog and saw this post & I had a wedding enquiry today for there. Looks an amazing place to photograph in, such variety.
