15 days to go until 2011 9 Sleeps to go until Christmas


Christmas issue

Welcome to our very festive December edition of photonews online. It is indeed that time of year when santa has had to give his sleigh its annual service in readiness for its Christmas eve trip to every home where children are waiting eagerly to wake their parents at some un-natural hour in order to open their presents.

Phil, Mark, Angela, Mark & Michelle would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers, new and old a Merry Christmas & Happy new year.

Christmas fayre

We had to get into the christmas spirit early this year. The above shot is from our portfolio and was for the Thursday Cottage festive range and was in fact taken in the summer. These seasonal treats are all hand made from the highest quality ingredients and are absolutely delicious.

Yes... we had Christmas pud in July.

Xmas competition


We often shoot products out of season. For example as we approach Christmas we are currently shooting a beach scene for Toys R Us as well as products for next years spring / summer catalogue.
We've shot Christmas puddings, gas fires and winter coats in the middle of a heat wave. You try buying a santa suit in July and daffodils in December.

Twist and Shout

In this months technical spot we thought we would like to talk about lighting....
Yes Christmas lighting.
As you can see above used correctly the results can be amazing. Be warned though, once you store them, they do two things automatically:-
1. tie themselves into knots so badly that it takes hours and hours to untangle.
2. develop a fault causing only half of them to work no matter how many bulbs you twist, plug in and unplug, test and replace. At this point Mark recommends a stiff drink!!
If all else fails, go to the nearest superstore and buy some more.
(Remember not to throw out the faulty ones, as you want to repeat the same experience next year. Ha ha ho).
