August, 5th, 2017 - *Another Day, Another Shoot*
Today was part 2 of my photo shoot at Ruislip Lido with The Model Code Agency.
Things started off a bit rocky as I was feeling a little under the weather health wise and the weather itself was playing around too much.
A few of the models dropped out of participating in the shoot at the 11th hour which didn't help things much as the last couple of sessions have been quite honestly a waste of time.
Regardless, things went ahead with the ones that did turn up and we managed to make a productive day out of it.
Even when it started raining in the middle of the session, we regrouped in the woods and came up with a different type of shoot we could do until the rain had subsided.
All in all, despite looking bleak at the start, the shoot turned itself around and managed to get some shots which I can say I learnt more from taking & have a slight better understanding on posing & stances.
Thank you to all the models that came out and should have the photos ready to be released in a while. (Am still pretty swamped!)
*Now for Hire!*
Back in March, I was looking for people/models to practice my Portrait photography skills because I am predominantly a Landscape, Nature & Candid photographer and didn't have much one-on-one experience capturing people.
Since then, I have grinded on elevating my photography skills & worked with a few people on collaborations/projects where I was fortunate to gain a lot more experience/opportunities.
The feedback has been really positive so much so that as of late, I have been receiving requests and bookings to shoot more people
Because of this, I have found new courage & confidence to offer my services to anyone wanting quality photography.
For a limited time, I will be having an introductory price of £50 [for London locals only.]
For this, you will get the following:
up to 2 hours on-location shoot
@rtoffelix's unique image enhancement & retouching of your photos (retouching features & requests to be confirmed after the shoot)
12 Full-resolution JPEGs from the shoot
Please also share this info with your friends/family.
- As a reward for helping to promote @rtoffelix, (with a watermark & social media photographer tag), a £5 discount will apply if you choose to do so.
- Any additional requests are subject to extra fees, to be agreed upon before making the appointment. Additional photos & copies are also subject to extra charges
- An initial 30% deposit (non-refundable) must be made after the shoot, the remaining 70% to be paid after sample final review images are sent for approval.
- Offer until October 2017 where regular pricing will increase.
May 28th, 2017 - Family Ties.
Last night was the annual Afro Model Awards held in Cricklewood and I got to attend as a press photographer for the night.
I also was there to support my cousin who was nominated for the best modeling agency....
So congratulations to him for winning the award!
It was a very eventful night and there are over 1000 captures to sort through so it will take some time to sort & process.
I will endeavor to get them out soon.
May 12th/13th, 2017 - Stop for Press.
This weekend I had the opportunity to become a press photographer for 2 events for "One Africa"... ->
April 23rd, 2017 - Level Up!
Today marks the day of making a transition photography wise.
But that will be revealed very soon as I make the proper preparations & get things sorted... Hopefully, it will help take my images to a new level.
*Update* - The big news was I obtained a Canon 5D Mark. II!
Anyway, today also was spent enjoying a #RandomDayStroll in Camden Town during a busy Sunday market run and ended up taking me to Primrose Hill capturing a gathering of people atop the hill watching the sunset.
The photos are in the lab currently being processed and will be brought to you soon!
April 12th, 2017 - Tinkering with Set Up
Lately, I've been working under hard drive space constrictions as I have kept conveniently running out of space. With no donations & support (as of yet) I have had to work a few low key errands & jobs to be able to finance a new hard drive & NAS configuration.
This isn't me plugging for support/donations [although they would be greatly appreciated as providing content isn't cheap] but rather just letting you know what has been happening.
Additionally, I have been feeling ill as of late which has meant delays in productions & falling behind on retouching & sorting out my galleries.
As soon as I get this MacBook Pro configured with the new drives & get health back to a manageable level, I will hit y'all up with some good content.
April 1st, 2017 - No April Fool here!
So much to do but this month should be filled with a lot more #RandomStrolls and collaborations with models for Portrait sessions.
Also, there is a new gallery for the collaboration I did with @themodelcodeagency for their Leake Street photo shoot.
Welcome to April.
