Steve’s amazing Sahara trek

Our shoot from this morning was our client Steve Searle, Today looking for something a “little” different hehehe,  Steve is about to set off on a 100KM trek to the Sahara so we did a Calendar Girl inspired shoot to help with promotions 🙂

This is an amazing challenge so please check out his page and if this photo made you smile maybe make a donation, every pound is well worth it please.   Donate here

A message from Steve.

 

Steve Searle’s Sahara Slog

I have been contemplating a personal challenge as part of a charity fundraising event for some time now; but have always seemed to find a reason to put any plans on hold.

Well, here we are, I’m sat pondering what can be achieved – and quite frankly have run out of any excuses or rational arguments not to actually undertake something that will really push me; whilst raising some cash in the process.

I’m ‘reasonably’ fit, still have my own teeth and also have a niggling itch that needs scratching in terms of adventure and exploration. I have therefore joined a group of like minded individuals who will take part in a quest to North Africa, where we will undertake an 8 day trek through the Sahara Desert.

This is the real deal; using local guides and a caravan of camels to carry kit we will be trekking for 7 hours a day in isolation over the incredible but harsh landscape. It’ not an easy option – as well as the training programme I’m undertaking (plus the medical and vaccinations), this is proper desert – just sand, camels, tents, sand, dug latrines, rocks, more sand and wet wipes!! I am well aware that this takes me out of my comfort zone, but then so it should.

My chosen charity is very important to the family; my niece unfortunately has CF. Increasingly, it is left to the research work being carried out by Cystic Fibrosis Trust to spearhead the realistic possibility of a solution being found to this terrible condition; especially as Government funding is inevitably cut.

I really appreciate your support and thank you very much for any donations – all amounts are greatly received.

Hampshire wedding photographer and our 30 amazing weddings of 2012

Last weekend we photographed our 30th and last planned wedding of 2012,  I say last planned because if something interesting comes along, great couple or great venue then we might squeeze another one in 🙂

The reason we finished this year so early is simply because we reached our 30 target early, for the past 3 years we have limited ourselves to 30 weddings and last year we worked up until December but this year we have already finished,  I am really pleased to say that we are over half way booked for next year to so it looks like 2013 is going to be another fab year for us.  30 weddings is a lovely number for us to do and with our studio work including our newborns it keeps us very busy but also allows us a life 🙂

If your getting married in 2012 and want to chat to see if we can join you then please get in touch, if you getting married in 2013 then contact us soon whilst we still have spaces.

A huge thank you to all of our amazing couple from this year and to those we have yet to photograph we are looking forward to it too 🙂

I look forward to hearing from you.

Jules
