The theme for this shoot was ‘Suicide Blonde’

Think dirty and edgy rock chicks. Blondie, Debbie Harry, Courtney Love. All of those 90’s grunge rock icons

I hope you enjoy the shots!

5 Golden Rules

Being a Manfrotto Ambassador, they sometimes ask me to write bits for their School of Xcellence. They recently asked me about my 5 Golden Rules of Photography and it took me a while to actually figure out what to write.
I have never liked ‘rules’ and that will become clear once you read what I wrote for Manfrotto

You can find it here: Manfrotto School of Xcellence

I’d love to know what your favourite ‘rule’ is, or any opinions you have on them

Iceland stole my heart

I very recently spent a weekend in Iceland and took my DSLR along as I have neglected it recently, but also because I knew Iceland was meant to be a very picturesque place

My goodness though, you don’t realise how beautiful until you are there. It has totally stolen my heart and I want to go back!

I also didn’t get a chance to see the Northern Lights (just another reason to go back) but I did capture some stars

Enjoy my little travel diary below!
I’d love to know what you think

New Portfolio Shots

I recently spent an hour at Adrian Pini Studios in Brent Cross to shoot the gorgeous Zara Watson. Here are some of the shots I achieved within that small hour for my portfolio

Hope you like!

Monopods are in Fashion!

Recently, Manfrotto asked me to write an article on the use of monopods in Fashion Photography.

Even though I am a Manfrotto ambassador, I have considered this such a great honour, and I have received some great feedback from it!

You can read it at the following link: Manfrotto School of Xcellence

It would be great to hear what you think about it also 🙂

The amount of exposure has been amazing. My own article has even come up as a sponsored, and suggested, ad on my own personal facebook. That was a treat to see on my timeline!

Ryvita Treats!

As most people should know, I’m never one to turn down a treat and I adore everything fashion.

So when Wildcard PR got in contact about a limited edition Ryvita tin, well I wanted to know more! (Ryvita is almost a staple in my diet also).

I love it when brands now collaborate with fashion designers and everybody breaks out of their comfort zone. It’s so exciting and invigorating to see, and with this tin being designed by Ben de Lisi I immediately wanted it. I have fond memories of watching Ben de Lisi on Project Catwalk before I started to pursue fashion photography officially.

Ryvita first collaborated with Kelly Hoppen last year and that flew off of the shelves, so this one is much anticipated!

It already looks great on my dining room table, and now I don’t have to keep my Ryvita crispbreads in a competitor tin. My whole family is wanting to steal it from me it’s gone down that well.

I am essentially a fashion photographer, rather than an FBlogger, so i tried to give my product images the kind of feel I put on my Instagram pictures. I have also uploaded these to my Instagram yes. If you have Instagram search for me and follow me. I’m “Fordtography”.

I think every kitchen needs this as an addition. I probably won’t use this in my kitchen however. I might keep batteries and memory cards in it. Things photographers always lose track of, but the tin is so eye catching and with enough space, that I’ll never lose a thing again!

This tin will be available from the Ryvita website and costs £7.49. A bit of a bargain for something designer! And we know I love Designer.

Teaching Photography

It is now time to flip everything around and look at me on the other side of the camera now.
The reasoning for this however is because I have been teaching my other half (slowly) about photography, and how to use my different cameras. This time I have been teaching him how to use my digital Canon EOS.
These are some of the shots he took when we went away to Ireland and I wanted to share it all with you as I feel like a proud teacher.
Let me know what you think!






#IrishDream

I recently went for a little getaway trip to New Town Mount Kennedy/Wicklow/Dublin within Ireland, and for once, I took along my Canon EOS 5Dmark2. I never take this camera when I go away, but I decided to bring it and actually document my little break a bit better than a compact would, or my phone.

I hope you enjoy this little insight into my everyday life, as well as my Photography itself. If you want to see more, or follow what I do every day a bit more (I try and make the photos visually interesting) please follow me on Instagram. My username is “fordtography”

#ManfrottoUK Ambassador

I am really delighted, ecstatic, so happy, dead chuffed (and all that) to announce that I am now a Manfrotto Ambassador!

I am so amazed that I am a part of this Manfrotto family/community as Lara Jade, who is a huge inspiration to me and my photography) is also an ambassador.

I look forward to what my future now holds for me with this huge company behind me 🙂
