We began the Mark Lane photo shoot project meeting Mark at his home in Keny about his requirements for the photo session and took along some basic camera gear for some test shots.  We also took a laptop so we could look at the images we had captured allowing us all to discuss the details and help to decide if we were going to be able to get the shots Mark needed.

Mark is a very personable person and quite at home in front of the camera so we could concentrate more on the shooting than on making him feel comfortable as he already was.  It was a pleasure and fun working with Mark and looking forward to the next session

Wakehurst is a beautiful place and very well presented certainly worth a visit. Our plan included a discussion with Sandra about the options available as it wasn’t possible to do a pre-shoot recky.  Our trusty chaperone Sandra identified many potential places to get our light, bright and colourful shots.

Lily and I discussed the options available in the areas that would provide good light good foreground and background, we manage to find plenty, the weather was sunny with some cloud so pretty good potential defused lighting and colourful flowers in abundance .

We work on light bright and colourful and this fitted perfectly with the brief and managed to find plenty of options to try out.  Mark Lane can be found by following this link https://www.marklanedesigns.com
