When we started our business, I don’t think we said to one another; “ok, what type of photography are we going to specialise in?” It was a natural progression of what we already loved; being outdoors and experiencing all that the world around us has to offer.

Ever since we started, we’ve taken product pictures and macro shots using a studio. Perhaps studio is too grand a title, for the assortment of locations around the house, we’ve used over the years.

In fields, moorland, meadows, and woodland; the climate effect is being felt. Our small area of land has had significant changes over the last three years. We write a journal about the flora and fauna we see and hear and the weather; from this, we notice significant changes. February was very wet, like most parts […]

Badger walking in garden

Well, they never really went away, just that they were visiting after we had gone to bed in the wee small hours of the morning. As the days are getting longer, they are starting to come in at a more reasonable hour. However, making the alarm go off just as you’re about to sit down […]
