John Lennon's Watch...

Back to The Globe Stockton today for some up to date shots of the progress so far.  John knows the building from top to bottom and he took me on a guided tour and even carried my bag.  He told me the John Lennon story, apparently Allen Klein The Beatles manager at the time presented each member of the band with a watch prior to their gig.  John Lennon lost his in The Globe and it has never turned up...

Studio Portraits...

 Although I prefer working outdoors when photographing children, sometimes on a day filled with rain and hailstones it's nice to be in the warmth of the studio...

The Futureheads...

 Sunderland four-piece The Futureheads stopped off at The Georgian Theatre Stockton for an intimate gig as part of their nine-date tour promoting their new album, Rant.
The band has established themselves as one of Britain’s most thrilling and durable guitar bands, releasing four albums between 2004 and 2010. Their fifth album is a daring release, as it does not feature any instruments at all. It is comprised entirely of a cappella versions of the band's tracks and a series of cover versions, including Black Eyed Peas' Meet Me Halfway and Kelis' Acapella as well as renditions of three traditional folk songs. While less traditional, The Futureheads’ version of ‘The Number One Song In Heaven’ by Sparks also works remarkably well. Its success is down to the band’s skills as singers, as their harmonies are so neat and crisp, they can effectively recreate the kind of choral synth sounds that were so fashionable in Sparks’ heyday.  
In all my years of buying music I've never purchased an album that included a beer mat holder and a beer mat to pop in your holder and all for under ten pounds...

George Flies The Flag!!!

 Sometimes the simplest of idea’s can be the most effective. Situated in Norton means we are only 20 minutes from the coast.  Team this up with a little bit of creative thinking and a young boy with a vivid imagination (George thought he was a Roman soldier carrying his flag to the mountain top) and the finished results can look fabulous…

Sonny + Laura's Shoot...

 It’s nice sometimes to head off for a shoot with no real idea or direction of what you want to achieve.  It’s even better when you work with a couple who are willing to allow you that freedom!  This enables you to experiment and try out some new ideas without worrying that it’s wrong.  Thanks again to Sonny + Laura for allowing me to play…

Spring is in the air...

 It happened on a Thursday, yesterday as a matter of fact. I walked past a man in the village and he was wearing a white vest top and Bermuda shorts, using him as my barometer I’m assuming summer is here?  During the spring and summer months you will find me scouting out new locations for my photography and so far I have found 3 inspirational settings…  We also have a great spring incentive offer on for a limited time.  Give the studio a call 01642 355205 or email studio@garywalsh.co.uk

Seeing and taking the image is just the start...

 On Tuesday 20th March 2012  I was lucky enough to spend the day at Aspire photography training with Andee Tate from CRAVE photography based in Utah. The day was spent tweaking and improving my photoshop skills. Seeing the image and using my camera to record it are the first steps of the journey.  The post production is the next step, this is very rewarding and will give my images that little extra punch.  The final stage is seeing them beautiful presented either in a bespoke album or as wall art.  
The image on the left has had some basic tweaks but the image on the right has had the benefit of some new techniques I learnt on Tuesday...
