This summer's weekends are busy, and weekday evenings are usually tied up with music rehearsals, but we have time to fit in planning meetings around that. Thank goodness some of the audio recording is coming in during the week. Good use will be made of our air conditioning.
Last week all of the team travelling north, staying near Inverness. The weather was perfect, as the image shows. That glass isn't too distracting I trust.
Brainstorming ideas for the eventual relocation of the company, after our lease in Kings Cliffe runs out next April. Even after the premises close, we will continue to work in the Peterborough area, so work in the two areas will overlap by several months before the eventual move north.
The electrical inspection of the studio was completed yesterday, required by our landlord who is changing his insurers, and quite separate from our own insurance. Since the power was turned off for a time in each part of the studio we made sure that there were no bookings to be disrupted.
We are taking more enquiries from Bark which has the effect of booking up dates further in the future, particularly at weekends for wedding and event services, but we like to fit commercial projects during the week. Juggling several diaries is a skill.
Its been some time since we updated the video and photo examples on our website. We do have more examples and often email out links so have a look on the video page and see what's included.
There's been a huge range of photography happening in the studio and beyond, with 3 different commercial projects this week, and more wedding photography to come, but we're not ignoring our musical roots as we're recording tracks on the weekend as well. No lack of variety!
Fenech Soler have been in the studio over the last couple of weeks with some intensive sessions. After a bit of rearrangement, the live room is freed up now for the next 5 bands coming in this week, while we set up to produce some video in the stage room.
We're busy with product photography just recently for very different clients, in the studio earlier on in the week taking images of products which help anyone visually-impaired, and today working out at the Battery Store in Market Harborough.
Thank you for your ideas and suggestions about great photo locations in the area. We aim to offer a selection of the best areas when booking a shoot, and its good to know ahead of time which locations have parking charges or restrictions on specific activities. Please keep sending suggestions through.
Exploring good venues for engagement photography in the area, we're finding its a bit limited for areas that allow dogs as well. We would like to build up a directory of locations suitable with or without dogs, and would welcome help if you can make suggestions please. Email your ideas through to us and we'll check them out - thank you
