Israel Part Four (Colour) – Jerusalem

If don’t do this everyday then you make mistakes. The girl in the gallery is a young Israeli soldier, I was so nervous that I made a mess of the camera settings and basically forgot everything I know about photography so the shot wasn’t as good as I hoped for.

Week 1 – Starlet….

…..Svenja really is a “Starlet

I had the opportunity to test some Fujifilm equipment the other day. Needless to say I was very smitten, as I still am with my X100, so I’ve expanded my Fuji portfolio just a little 😉

(Whereby the cameras and lenses for this shoot were all borrowed)

I’d like to thank both Svenja and Katja, I had a great time that day!

Week 53 – Finish as you mean to go on…..

…. this is Dia, whom I had the pleasure of photographing last October. I’ve been saving the best till last so to say….

Thanks to Dia for her patience and staying-power (in the cold and very hostile environment) and thanks to Peter for his good advice!

Week 28 – Don’t you just love blondes…….

and this one is a very special example…… meet the aptly named Bonny.

She is a very obedient, patient and easy going girl, quite prepared to have her pictures taken in the rain sitting next to her favourite treat without complaint.

A real low maintenance girl……..
