2014 has been a wirlwind year. My duaghter Eleanor was born in May and she is a beautiful joy to spend time with. Between power naps and nappy changes the last year has proven especially busy with lots of travel both abroad and in the UK. Photoshoot trips to regions of the UK I would not otherwise have visited and journeys further afield to Barcelona. I have been privileged to meet some amazing healthcare staff and see them at work. It’s been a pleasure to continue to collaborate with my long standing clients, producing creative work for annual reports, websites, marketing and advertising. I am looking forward to producing and developing more creative output in 2015.
I have also upgraded and added new equipment to my kit. The Nikon D810 and D800 currently the only DSLR 35mm cameras capable of producing 36 megapixel files, the largest digital image files available from a camera in this class. In conjunction with this I have upgraded my computer and storage in order to maintain an efficient workflow that can handle the larger files sizes produced by the D800 cameras.
Below is a small sample of photography completed during 2014.
Photographed the Grimsthorp half marathon today for Runner’s World Magazine. This was a beautiful setting to work in and I am pleased to have discovered the wonderful Grimsthorp Castle. http://alexorrowphotography.photoshelter.com/gallery/Grimsthrop-Half-Marathon/G0000ISlXW6Tn2mc
Had to share this! Don’t often see stand up comedy but Joe Wilkinson was great. His routine performed at the Junction in Cambridge was very engaging, with a persona that made me luagh about the little oddities in his life. Like getting the Mega Bus to Dundee!!
The evening was a warm up before the two acts headed for Edinburgh Festival. Roisin was great but openly struggling with new material but that was funny anyway.
I was asked recently by BAFTA to photograph an event with the actor Bill Nighy ‘A Life in Pictures with Bill Nighy’ held at the Cambridge Union Society. The event was a Q&A with the journalist Miranda Sawyer. The brief was to photograph without flash the Q & A on stage and the audience asking questions. Bill has acted in many great roles in such films as ‘Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean’ I really enjoyed listening to his humble approach to acting and career. Low light capability of the Nikon D3s came into its own. Technical: Nikon D3s / ISO 6400 / 80-200mm lens. 200th/s f/4
