Shooting in a small room


One of the biggest issues with shoots in your subjects’ home is never knowing how much space you will have to work with. This shot shows just what it’s like to do a shoot in a small bedroom.

New Zealand Pacific Salsa Congress


Last year I attended the best event probably of my entire life. The NZ Pacific Salsa congress. It was the first of it’s kind in NZ. And although I was mainly there to soak up the atmosphere, be entertained and dance till me feet fell off, I couldn’t resist taking a million photos. I never go anywhere without my camera it’s become an extension of my arm. Well, now it’s 2008, they are following it up with another congress, bound to be heaps of fun and with many more performers and teachers than before. I’m gutted I won’t make it, as I’m in Ireland now, but I’ve been watching there site for updates all the same. I noticed they didn’t have any photos of the event on the site, so I offered mine. They are located on my website but they’ve added a link to it from the official congress website http://www.nzpacificsalsacongress.co.nz. This years event is taking place from 21st to 23rd March. I’m busy still editing and adding photos to my site. Above is my boyfriends favorite shot of the event.

The town where I live

This is Balbriggan. If I was still Down under living this close to the beach would have cost me a fortune in rent. However, because this is Ireland and we rarely get beach weather this area was the cheapest rent close to Dublin. Not a bad place if you can get a fine day to go for a walk.

Some actual photos!

Sadly I haven’t picked up my camera for quite a long time now; essays, exams and even (shock,horror!) work has got in the way. I also have a feeling that having ordered a couple of flashes and wireless triggers from ebay has given me some sort of unconscious ‘excuse’ not to take any photos. I’ll just wait until the flashes come. Sure there’s no point in trying until I have all the equipment… I have to stop it though! In the meantime, I did finally pick up the camera, and took a few pictures of the Christmas tree. Nothing spectacular, but at least it’s something.
