I nervously said "Yes!" without fully thinking it through. I luckily had lots of family and friend encouragement. On Monday night, I went to St Hilary Photography Club to do a talk there, about my work. 

I'm pleased to say, it went much better than it was inside my head. The members enjoyed the speak and was very interested in my photography - and they've asked me to come back again in a few months. Of what I'm extremely happy to do.

If anyone would like me to do a talk at their photography club - I'd be extremely interested. I'm currently focusing on (no pun intended) steel wool photography topic, as when I mentioned it at the club, I found the members were very impressed by it. 

Thanks again to St Hilary Photography Club for inviting me to do a talk. I hope to see you guys again.

Shabbyness! http://jakeridingphotography.com/blog/2016/12/shabbyness The other day, I was approached and asked if I would be interested in shooting a music video. Being as they're friends, I said yes - it gives me some experience and them a video. After lots of laughs, here it is... Shabby Chic - White Christmas:

Massive thanks to Alice Allen for recording and mixing the music! Helped me out sooo much.

Photo featured in Helston Advertiser http://jakeridingphotography.com/blog/2016/12/photo-featured-in-helston-advertiser So living in Helston, I'm a huge fan of the Christmas Light display in Helston. The other day, I decided to go out around the town and photograph the beautiful display. I went out late to avoid traffic and people, and in my view I believe I got some wonderful photographs. I had lots of wonderful comments about them too on Facebook.

Today, I noticed that my photograph of Helston Christmas Lights 2016 has been featured on the front page of Helston Advertiser. I was very pleased to discover this. (Thank you Toby for using it).

Cornwall Hospice Care. Santa Fun Run 2016 http://jakeridingphotography.com/blog/2016/11/cornwall-hospice-care-santa-fun-run-2016 Last year, I photographed the Santa Fun Run in Helston for me, I then got contacted by Cornwall Hospice Care asking if they could use my photographs, of course I said yes! I then got asked to photograph their other fun runs. Then throughout 2016 I was asked to photograph their events (that I could get to).

I learnt more and more about Cornwall Hospice Care, and the team - what a fantastic charity they are. Now, very close to my heart.

With less than a month to go until Christmas, it's time for Santa Fun Run's 2016! There was one yesterday, in Bodmin, but sadly, it was too far for me to travel. But today, there was one in Marazion... Yep, I was there, snapping away.

Well done to everyone involved and the people who took part. Very lucky the weather was good, okay, a little bit cold, but c'mon. It's the end of November!

The next ones I have planned, are:

  • Truro.
  • Falmouth.
  • Helston.

If you see me at any of them, please give me a wave (or thumbs up).

Christmas Mugs in Iesha's Attic http://jakeridingphotography.com/blog/2016/11/christmas-mugs-in-ieshas-attic-helston Last year, I stood in a field for ages that was freezing cold and wet to get one of the most amazing photos (in my view!) of Helston Christmas Lights Switch-On Fireworks. So many people loved it, that I got in contact with a Helston based printer and got the photo put on 10 mugs.

The Mugs! They are currently for sale until the end of December, in Iesha's Attic that's located at the top of Meneage Street in Helston. Whilst you're in there, there is also loads of amazing homemade stuff, that's perfect for Christmas (or just for yourself).

There are (and only will be) 10 mugs available, so I'd get over to Iesha's Attic as soon as you can! As the saying goes "You snooze, you lose".

She's located at 44 Meneage Street, Helston, Cornwall
