The Dutch Photographer https://www.johnrossphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/8/the-dutch-photographer It was great to have a visitor to the island a couple of months ago, this time all the way from Holland, nooo.... she isn't from Amsterdam and no she doesn't smoke weed, I asked.

Karin was visiting Guernsey for the first time and got in touch to ask if I could show her around the island to take some landscape and nightscape images. Karin's photography expertise lies in family portraiture and wedding photography so we had plenty to talk about.

Although landscape photography is more of a hobby for me, I hadn't been out to take any images for myself in well over a year. The images I have been out to take have been commissioned for commercial use and local businesses so it was nice to get out and create something new without the pressure.

Either way I was keen to get out with a likeminded photographer and create some epic images, I only had 2 evenings free, so the first evening we headed out to L'Ancresse Bay and found a new location I'd never shot at the shooting range. For sunset we then headed towards Port Soif to capture some long exposures.

The second evening we headed to the cliffs at Pleinmont. After walking around for an hour and taking a few snaps we ended up on the slipway in front of the fairy ring, not sure what that's called but if you know feel free to drop me a comment.

Soon after sunset that evening we headed back up to L'Ancresse to see if the stars would come out. Sure enough they did, and what an amazing sky it was! Although it was a little hazy and I'd seen clearer nights in the past, Karin was amazed to see so many stars and mentioned she had never seen anything like it in Holland.

We ended the night resonably early at around 12am, i knew id missed the chance at taking my usual selfie in good light, so we decided on a slightly different style.

Karin specialises in family portraiture and wedding photography and you can check her work out over on Facebook, Instagram or her Website.

We are looking forward to heading back out again in October when she will be visiting for the second time, but for now, here are a few images we managed to take.

Fermain Valley Hotel wedding https://www.johnrossphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/fermain-valley-hotel-wedding I received a phone call a couple of weeks before Amanda and Ian were due to get married and, after some confusion, I came to realise this wasn't a Guernsey wedding but more of a honeymoon / engagement / wedding session mash up!

Not having met the couple and having only spoken to them over the phone a couple of times, plus arranging dates and times by message, didn't give me much to work with. So, I didn't actually meet them until the day of the shoot, had no idea what they like doing together, what their style is or what sort of people they are as a couple. They didn't book a photographer for the 'big day', so I really didn't know what they where expecting.

Anyway, despite my concerns, it turned out that none of this mattered! We all had a great, instant connection and these photos were going to take place no matter what - unusually and refreshingly, I had a blank canvas to work with!

Amanda and Ian were arriving in Guernsey the day after their wedding, bringing the dress and suit and staying for the Easter weekend Bank Holiday and it turned out they couldn't have picked a better weekend; it was a beauty.

Thanks to The Fermain Valley Hotel for their amazing input in helping the couple get ready with make-up, hair, flowers and dress. They also recommended their new Yoga House for a few photos which turned out to be a stunning location.

And we couldn't pass up the opportunity of utilising a fully-blooming Bluebell Woods with it being so close and the perfect location for this time of year.  Heading out of Bluebell Woods I realised we weren't going to make it on time for the sunset at Pleinmont, so a last minute decision to go to the cliffs at Petit Port turned out to be a great move, as you can see!

The first of its kind on the island and what a turnout!

From trikes to racing cars and not forgetting the Best Of Guernsey Bus, there was no escaping this jump! Hi jumps, long jumps and barely lifted the ground jumps, o and a few crashes.

Check out the full gallery above.

365 Project https://www.johnrossphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/1/365-project 2015 Project 365

Well.... 2015 has been another fantastic year of photography! Although my 365 Project was meant to be personal, it includes a great mix of images for me to look back on; all thanks to my good friend and awesome photographer David Gilliver who nominated me.
The 365 project is on many photographer's bucket list but most never get round to completing it. I knew from the outset this would be a tough challenge; the closest I have been previously was the '52 week landscape project' back in 2011 when I struggled to take just one landscape image a week.

I'm proud to say I've never seen such a variety in quality and genre than this album which contains images from eight different cameras and 10 lenses.

The best camera you have is the one you have with you and for most people it's the one in your pocket 99% of the time, your phone camera. So it's not surprising that 65 of the project photos were taken with my iPhone, as well as five from my Go Pro, 20 from APS-C Cameras and 275 from my full frame cameras.

Like any year, there has been ups and downs and some sad days, but thankfully many more happy ones! And the best thing about it is that I can just look at this album and remember every moment like it was yesterday.

Thank you so much to my friends and family for their support throughout the year. And a special thank you to the Buffalo Huddleston band for letting me use their music for the slideshow. They have always supported my work and have always been happy to have their photo taken as you will see below.
