So I have finally launched my new website www.jondaviesphotography.co.uk All blog posts will now be uploaded onto the Blog section of the new site.
If you are currently subscribed to this blog and wish to be kept up to date with my new posts, be informed when I post new images, etc you can go to www.jondaviesphotography.co.uk and subscribe to the new site for regular updates. It’s probably worth staying subscribed to this site as well as I may upload the odd post on here if it’s not really suitable or in keeping with the portrait and commercial emphasis of the new site.
I have also just created a brand new Facebook page www.facebook.com/photographerjondavies which is where I will be uploading additional images and running promotions and special offers. Take a look and ‘Like’ the page!
Anyway that’s all for now! Thank you all for following this blog for the last couple of years and for all your comments. I hope you’ll enjoy my work on the new site from this point forward! See you there 🙂
This weekend I met my first Aylestone Bulldog! Part Bulldog, part Dogue de Bordeaux (Like the dog in Turner and Hooch) Her name was Echo and she was one of the loveliest, most well behaved and funniest dogs I’ve ever met. She’s not yet reached the stage where she runs at you, jowls flapping and drool flying everywhere, which is nice as it meant we got to play with her and I could photograph her without needing waterproof casing for my camera 🙂
Here’s some images of Echo the Aylestone Bulldog!
She’s cute eh! These were all shot just using natural light from a large window and my trusty 50mm lens at around f1.8-2.8 giving those lovely out of focus backgrounds.
Last night 80’s Icon – Belinda Carlisle played at The Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham with Nina Smith as her support act. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go backstage and shoot some documentary photography of Nina and her ‘Man Band’ during their soundcheck and before they went on stage as well as photographing their set and then Belindas.
Here are a few images from before they took to the stage:
I’ll have some images uploaded from both Nina and Belinda Carlisle’s set very shortly!
Here are a few more images from my Evil Scarecrow promo shoot. The band needed some product shots to promote their merchandise and T-shirts on their website. We thought that some cheesy, white background catalogue type shots would work well so here they are!

Ok so below are a few more shots from Sundays shoot with Evil Scarecrow. I took a lot images on the day so I will be adding more as I get through the editing process. Enjoy 🙂
Keep an eye out for more posts as I’m on a bit of a blogging mission at the moment 🙂
Until next time!
Today I have been in the studio photographing metal band Evil Scarecrow. It’s quite late so I’m not going to babble but I’ve just edited a couple of my favourite shots from the day so here they are!
The band are a great bunch of people and really good fun to shoot. More images to come over the next few days.
Today I decided that my long suffering reluctant model and girlfriend (not reluctantly my girlfriend, just model!) was going to put on a pretty dress and let me take some shots of her using some off camera flash techniques at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.
After arriving at the park and realising that I had left all of my memory cards at home I left her there and went back home to get them. By the time I got back 40 minutes later I found a very cold and not best pleased reluctant model who was even less impressed that I’d left her to freeze for so long in -1 degree temperatures wearing a dress and tights. Still, being the sweetheart that she is she let me take some pictures and I think has just about forgiven me now she’s thawed out and seen the images 🙂
I’ve done a fair bit of processing of these images using textures in Photoshop to give some of them an almost watercolour like appearance. I really like the effect and will probably be using this technique again for another shoot I have coming up this month.
In other news… I will be transferring my blog over the my new website in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for the new look blog!
