Julian Porter Photography » Life is lived in a series of fleeting moments...

I also run a cycling club……

A couple of years ago at a beautiful wedding in Surrey, I got talking to the vicar about life in general and he asked me what I liked to do, I answered, Well I love to take photos, I’m really lucky with my job. His reply gobsmacked me. “I Love God, But I need a break now and then” haha so with that in mind I thought I would tell all my lovely clients about my little break from my love of Photography.

I Cycle 🙂   ok maybe a little more than that, I have been cycling almost 3 years after running injuries and I cycle around 12,000 miles a year so “I Cycle” quite a lot 🚴🏻

This year I started my only cycling club, there are plenty of clubs already but most I have found to be, well, less than welcoming, Probably not intentionally but there you go. I wanted a club for everyone, I don’t care where you live, where you come from, how fast you are, what bike you ride. As long as you enjoy cycling, chatting, coffee and cake then you will fit right in at Julian Porter Cycling Club.

We cycle as a club at least 3 times a week, Guaranteed Monday and Wednesday nights and Sunday Mornings. I have 2 groups determined by pace so that everyone is catered for. I have an amazing Lead rider George who looks after the newer cyclists and like me, he is very passionate about getting people cycling.  Mondays and Wednesdays we meet at Eling Tide Mill where there is a car park and then we cycle through the New Forest towards Beaulieu and either Lepe or Lymington anything between 20 and 40 miles depending on route and group. On Sundays, we go a little further again depending on the group but between 20 and 60 miles. All of our rides are guaranteed No Drop meaning even after a mechanical you will not be left alone.

We also do days out, Next month we are cycling to sandbanks for lunch and then another ride will be to the IOW for lunch, both will be a great fun day at a social pace to suit everyone.

So there you have it, my other passion 🙂

If you’re interested in cycling for fun or fitness, cake or racing then please check our club out and join our 53 members.

Happy snapping and safe cycling my friends

2016 and a new trimmer, fitter you.

Well most of you know my weight loss story and these past few months its come around again, not because I have lapsed but because I have been featured in the Daily Mirror and Man VS Fat and now the prestigious runners world all hoping to inspire others to loose weight and get fit and as a bonus live longer 🙂

Just before Christmas a friend and fellow Cyclist Sean contacted me and asked for some before and after photos, Hmmm I thought about it and came up with a plan.

We will photograph you twice in the studio, once before and once when you reach your goal and from each shoot you will get all the photographs digitally to print out at home or work and stick to the fridge or in my case my wardrobe but whatever these will help you keep on track and loose that weight and become a trimmer healthier you.

Most people will not want us using photos from the before 🙂 thats just fine we wont but once you see the transformation I am pretty sure you will want a photo published just like mine below.

I wish above everything that I had my before photos taken in the studio now but at least its driven me to offer this service.

So. Come along for your before photos, these can either be fully clothed or in sports gear or in swimwear/undies its entirely up to you and then once you have reached your goal come along again and we will create an before/after shot like mine below.

Total cost for both shoots and all photographs will be just £99.00  which is a fraction of what we normally charge but I am doing this to hopefully help you stay focused with your goals and become a better you.

I lost 8 stone in around 6 months and I am also more than happy to share my story too.

So wether you have 10lb or 10 stone to loose get in tough if you want some extra inspiration and some superb quality photos and who knows you may to get published just like I did.

Fitness photography with Zorena

Just before Christmas we had an unusual request for portrait photography but it was more Fitness photography with Lorena Roe who is a local celebrity in the weigh lifting and body building circles. We have worked with Zorena before so knew this shoot would be a lot of fun and we actually just treated it as any other Julian Porter portrait shoot which ultimately gave Zorena the results she wanted and us a real fun couple of hours.

Here at Julian Porter photography we offer all sorts of shoots from newborn babies at babyjp through to Weddings, Portraits, sports and Boudoir and all manner of corporate work too so please keep us in mind for your photography projects. We also offer photography workshops covering all sorts of subjects too.

Sue and I photograph hundreds of portraits every year and I am very proud to say we always get the results we want, we have very much an unhurried approach to our studio work, we often sit down for a coffee with our clients before the shoot and let the kids play on the background with our selection of toys, this make the parents relaxed and the children comfortable and it gives us cracking smiley photos. The difference between us and a high street studio with a strict time limit is immeasurable because unlike them we never rush a shoot. We believe if people are comfortable and happy in our studio then they will come back again and again and its proved to work 🙂

It also helps that we both LOVE what we do………..

We are running some very special portrait offers at the moment so if your looking for photos of yourself or your  a couple or a family please take a look because I am sure you will find something that will interest you

Southampton Tri club tt championships

Being a cyclist is great and if you know me you probably know I talk a lot and thats normally works if my favour professionally and one of my friends is a member of Southampton Tri club and she recently asked me to photograph Southampton Tri club tt championships which were being held over 3 Thursdays at the local popular P164 route which I cycle in Beaulieu.

Sue and I setup and photographed a couple of group photos before heading off on the course to find a decent spot to capture the cyclists at their best. We started at the bottom of a hill which was fab for me panning but ideally I needed more space so next week we have a new spot.

I spent most of the evening with bike envy, there were all sorts from dedicated tt bikes right through to a mountain bike but one thing is for sure, everyone loved it.

I hope you enjoy these cycling photographs, I am looking forward to doing my first tt very soon, apart from anything else it sounds like a good excuse for a new bike 🙂

Here are a few photos from todays event. We volunteered our time to Southampton Tri Club and I hope you have enjoyed our Cycling photography and please consider using Julian Porter Photography for any photography requirements or events you might have coming up. Sue and I photograph almost anything where people are involved and we would love to hear about any projects you have coming up.

Featured in the Glasgow Commonwealth games magazine

A few weeks ago we were contacted by the Commonwealth games about some of our photographs that Sue took of the Awesomeness that is Steve Way and the possibility of using them in the official magazine.  Needless to say we were very happy and sent off a selection.

The image they chose for this awesome 2 page speed was one that Sue took at the Hackney Half Marathon which I ran and she photographed.

Steve like myself overcome being a fatty 🙂 to start running, to be fair he runs a little faster than I do 🙂

You can read all about him on his website below.

To add to all this I can honestly say that Steve is a top bloke and always has time for a chat with us and unlike a lot of runners we always get a thank you for the photos 🙂

Well done Steve,  I am as proud as punch knowing you buddy.

I am equally as proud of my amazing wife and her photo talents.
