Sunshiney Days


Today was a real pleasure to be out photographing for EGB SW at their Wadebridge ride. It was a bit of a shame that the only spot I could get that was relatively level and with the sun behind me, was in deep woodland and it made the technical side of the day a bit of a headache, however the sun shone, the riders smiled (most of them) and the horses all behaved. proofs now available here http://www.farlap-photography.com/section151915.html
With the weather set to hold for a bit longer Im planning a calendar shoot day soon in the Plymouth area......this will be a fun morning or afternoon (date TBC as soon as possible) with hopefully lots of dogsof different breeds coming along and posing for their calendar photos. All those taking part get a free portriat for taking part and if chosen for the calendar then you get copies of that too. Theres nothing to lose!

Another busy few days, with a funloving family of chihuahuas to photograph for an editorial commision, and then a rather handsome malamute client on Saturday . Definitely two opposite ends of the spectrum, but both equally endearing in their different ways.

Pet passports at the ready


This week has seen 3 overseas sales for Farlap canine images, so I hope these gorgeous hounds have their passports, as they are about to be published in a text book in Austria. We also sold a staffy image to a magazine in Russia and finally a Jagd Terrier Head study to a French magazine.

I have a few of the 2012 calendars left. literally just 5 left and I am now offering them for any donation (all funds go to Gables Farm Dogs home). the breeds I have left are:
Greyhound, tibetan terrier, Vizsla and italian Spinone. Links to the calendars so you can see the quality and size of the photos is here http://www.browntrout.com/calendars/category.asp?MGID=1269 and any money for them will all go to Gables as mentioned above. Last chance to grab a calendar and support this great charity!! They can be collected from me in person on Saturday at Okehampton CS open show or posted for a £2 P&P fee. grab them before they aer gone, and help support a worthy doggy cause.

Oops sorry



Thanks to those who have emailed to check Im in the land of the living......it appears my blog posts ARE missed after all!! So here is todays offering! its been a very busy fortnight, with jobs all over the place, and as the lambing season is now in full swing, lots of my work for the farming publications have involved lambs. Ahhhhhhh....so sweet. Ive also had an interesting job at Bicton College, which had special meaning for me, being an "old Bictonian" myself. fab to see some faces and places that were a real blast from the past.
This week weve had images appear in Your Dogs magazine, which is a new one for us, and an odd sale was to a magazine in france, who wanted something very specific, and luckily I was able to help them. Hope you enjoy my favourite photo of the week which wasnt for a client....its of my new puppy!
