Lately I have been out and out a lot more with the weather improving as well as an influx in new properties for Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages.
I get sent to a lot of places around Brecon and this new one called Pontfaen Barn in the hills above the historic town was amazing. Really loved shooting there. If you want to read more about my experience and see some more pictures. Head over to the BBHC blog and website and see for yourself, maybe even book a visit!
Here is a taster, shot around 9pm at night, the sky really is that amazing up here. Such fresh clean air too.
I stumbled upon a photographer, called Inga Poweilleit, who is quite new to me whilst thumbing through my April copy of Elle Decoration last week. She had done an interior shot of a house I was pretty impressed with, not just for technicality but interior design, colour and the essence of the series of shots. Looking at her website (link in the name above) I discovered more of her work and my appreciation for her was confirmed.
I really enjoy the way she merges the architectural side of photography with the human element of the inhabitants or their creators. You can have a minimalist approach to life and it still reflect your personality or you can be an eclectic, eccentric and cluttered person mixed in styles and colours. Whilst creating these portraits of people she hasn’t made them the center of attention, but side lined them and included them in to the architectural mass of the image. There are other images of her that I love as well which I am sure i will talk about in another blog. Go check out her work.
I can’t wait for summer!
Lovely hen at Cui Hen Beudy yesterday- had about 20 following me about at one point + ducks as I had given them some old bread left over from shooting. I think she is a rare breed but I am no chicken fancier so not that great on recognising them. Some of the ladies had great punk hairstyles/plumage that stuck up on top. one day when I have the space…I am going too get some rare breed chickens. Then i will get the eggs! and when you catch a chicken their feathers are so soft and fluffy.
My favourite at Cui was a Frizzle! a curly feathered chicken which looks like a fluffy pom pom.
What do you think? First results of a shoot at a country house called Gilestone Farm last week for Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages.
Gorgeous country farm house with ‘butler bells’ and a rabbit warren of halways and bedrooms. amazing place with the sunshine streaming in.
Ebaying today. So much stuff to get rid of before we can even think about moving house! Been putting coats and jackets up for Sam and now I am on to my clothes

50mm f1.4A photo my sister took of me in the kitchen at Mum & Dad’s. She was trying out my nifty fifty and the lovely depth of field it has.
