Hi and welcome to my Blog....

I am sure it will soon become evident that I am no literary master of words, though I hope to share some of my thoughts and experiences whilst I am out and about as a photographer.

These may be in the form of an account of a commissioned assignment or a stock photographing trip or personal project, or even some straight forward views on workshops I have attended.
Whilst I can claim to have accumulated a good deal of experience as a photographer, I am always on the look out for new stuff to learn and don't ever feel I know it all.

"Virtually" there!

This is Alan, a self-employed IT engineer, certified Java script wizard and all round decent sort, fixes hardware and sorts out software problems, also builds and hosts websites.  The above image is created for an editorial introducing his new community project.

He's trialing a community Website (click on title to go there) at present for which he is  seeking feedback from the public. It's focused on individual communities such as villages or districts with their own unique identity. It's packed full of features, including information about local business and community resources such as Libraries, Museums, Bus services, Sporting facilities, Clubs and Societies with links to their Websites or offering an on-line presence for those who aren't on the web. Sounds like a great project and one where the community has an opportunity to shape it.

Village Networking 2nd Birthday at Henfield

Since joining Village Networking in June 2010, I have met so many new faces and developed links with a number of local business, even doing business with a few, but more importantly, learning from others, both in my own field and from those who have acquired some years of business experience and willing to share their invaluable knowledge with others. 

So on the 12th September at the George Hotel in Henfield,I found myself playing an active part for Village Networking in capturing this special occasion, the 2nd Birthday, by creating a few images brought home to me the scale of Jo's achievement in just two years of undoubted hard work.  

 A special cake was made for the event by Sharon Walker, from the Southwater group, beautifully iced and decorated with the Village Networking Logo. 

Helen Turier gave a ten minute motivational presentation with tips on how to give a meaningful 1 minute Intro to your business, delivered with her usual alacrity, humour and verve.

Where it began with just one group in Henfield it has since grown into five with Storrington, Southwater, Lindfield, Rustington. All of which were represented by at least one regular member from each group, including the two other  leaders, Rachael Burgess of "Lifestyle Sussex" who heads the Storrington group and soon to be established Billingshurst group, and Natalie Stafferton of "Utility Warehouse" who heads the Lindfield group. The new group at Rustington would be launched the next day by Dawn Wiseman, with a small business event styled as "Posh Market". Unfortunately Dawn was unable to attend because of her commitment to the launch of this new group.

The group image was posted onto the News Desk together with professional copy by Mike Beardall of Oakfield Media, one of the original members of Village Networkings Henfield group.  Lets hope it gets picked up by the local press and run in future publications.

If you've not heard of Village Networking, to find out more, why not visit their website: http://www.villagenetworking.biz/# you'll get to meet a great bunch of local business people at an open Networking group that is friendly and supportive, come along and join us.

Holy Innocents Church Fair and Dog Show

A very successful local event which raised £1800 for the Parish Church with a well attended first ever dog show, was held in the vicarage garden at Holy Innocents in Southwater last Saturday. 


In addition to offering the customary classes, the dog show also featured the Best 6 Legs, which drew some delightful entrants and amused the crowds and the judges.

The Fair was generously supported by various local businesses, including Southwater Action Team, Montessori Schools, Trophy Pet Foods and Forever Living.  There was a display by the local Karate club.


Sharon Walker of Sharon's Cakes, served as one of the judges for the cake contest, along with may other's who volunteered for such onerous tasks as the Best Vegetable Animal"

A beautiful Longhaired Retriever eventually won "Best of Show" and received a voucher to claim an Art's Eye 1 hour Pet and Family Portrait sitting.
