Photographing The Hidden Story

TED Talks continue to inspire me with their phenomenal content. I watched this talk by Ryan Lobo today, on Photographing the hidden story, and was inspired all over again by the power of story and of photography… this is why I do what I do.

Hopkins Photoshoot

I had the privilege of photographing an extended Hopkins clan this morning in Bartlett – and boy am I glad it stayed dry! It’s the first dry day I’ve had here really. Here’s a little sneak peak of this mornings shoot.

Online Art Shows

Promise ran a fun little online art show over on her blog today… really cool to take part, and there are some amazing artists around her community there!

Blaine is running one next week… stop by his blog & submit something cool for us all to see.

Find Me Here

I’ve really enjoyed getting my (photography) work out there a bit more, as terrifying as that is. I realise I haven’t really blogged much about these things, but there are a few places you can find me currently…

Where Your Heart Is‘ specialises in wedding favours, and a few months back I did the photography for the site. You can also find me under their ‘featured artist‘ section at the minute.

Big Mouth Coffee is, of course, my local coffeehouse… and a few of my photographs are adorning it’s walls currently. I’m also featured on their brand new website here.

I’ve also just booked my first wedding photography gig… really excited about pushing myself creatively and can’t wait to get stuck into it! I’m also utterly terrified, but I think that’s a normal part of the process!

[Beware: shameless plug coming up]

You can check out more of my work on my website, www.emmaboyd.co.uk, and hire me by dropping me an email.

Poverty Monologues Retrospect

I’ve put a few new things up on the Poverty Monologues blog, including a link to a great article by DFID on it, and a few photographs I snapped on Wednesday night when I saw the show.

Normal service will resume here in a while…. you know, that nice, undefined period of time.

Black & White Goodness

I got my first roll of B&W 120 film back from the printers today… learning that I need to use a much longer shutter time for them! I love this shot of my flatmates & I, and a few of the others kinda came out as ‘cool abstract stuff’.
