Ade's moving at supersonic speed with the coding, and the first draft should be on-line any day now... a lot of the content is still missing (the galleries for instantance), but the shell is there. I think we're going to put it on line for the world to see very soon!

Am doing lots of shoots at the moment, and getting some really great images. I'm excited about where this is all going, and looking forward to doing more shoots of various kinds with all sorts of people.... any volunteers?


moving on apace....

I'm in the process of setting up a website to showcase my photography. It's going to be matthewgough.com when it's up and running... Ade's writing the code as we speak, and I'm VERY excited!

I'll be putting up some galleries of some of my best images so that people can see the sort of pictures I take. The images will be broken down into categories such as 'nature' 'people' and 'events', and these categories will be split further, for example 'people' will be split into 'studio images of men' 'studio images of women' 'fashion' 'natural' and the like.

The first draft of the skeleton of the site will be up and running with a week or two, and once it's up please feel free to make comments and suggestions about the look, layout, ease of use, speed etc etc etc....


it's been a while

Hello! I'm afraid I've not posted for a while... been extremely busy with my new found hobby/career as a photographer! I'm getting loads of images onto the two stock agencies I sell through, and have now done three sessions with models... some of the results are great, but it's high lighted how much more I need to learn. There are some great photographers on the sites, and I've a long way to go to get up to speed with them as far as people photos go... we'll have to see what the agencies think when they get to review the images!

I'm trying to keep my concept unique, and am looking not for fabulously gorgeous models with perfect skin (thank you photoshop!) but for real people who have natural smiles... I've got lots of interesting sessions lined up too, including a wedding, some promo stuff for a concert pianist, portfolio work with a hairdresser and stylist, a couple of models and some fashion work.... all very exciting! :-)

it's been non stop work crazy since we got back from NZ, and then the busiest weekend! I've not had any chance to write stuff up about NZ... I'll do it though I promise.

The photos are being up loaded as we speak: I'm about half way through the 900 pics I took, filtering out the crap ones and selecting the best ones for your delectation. The gallery will be here, and half of them are uploaded so have a look and tell me what you think so far... I must admit though, that some of the best ones are still to come...


and we're back! :-(

We are now back from New Zealand: got home just before lunchtime. Have managed to get the laundry going, but we are both feeling highly peculiar with the jetlag, and aching all over after a 3 hour flight, followed by an 8 hour flight, followed by a 14 hour flight with not more than half an hour between them...

We had a fantastic time - really relaxing and great fun - but I'm in too much of a state to blog properly right now, so I'll do a post in the next few days once I've recovered enough. I will be sorting out the photos into a gallery once my brain is working properly too...


and we're off!!

About to leave the house - it's VERY exciting!!!!! :-)

Keep an eye on this blog, as I'm going to be updating it if and when I get the chance, otherwise keep an eye on the online gallery to follow our adventures.

love to all, and see you when we get back!
