Fuerteventura Holidays

 

I don’t normally post my personal photos on my blog, I like to keep it a place for my professional projects. However, everytime I shoot film I am keen to share my photos with everyone, for that sense of pride that comes from shooting film.

These photos are from my holidays in Fuerteventura on March/April this year. For the first time in my life I went on a completely relaxing beach holidays, not doing much apart from going to the beach, relaxing in the swimming pool, eating, drinking and sleeping…and it felt wonderful!

We only hired a car one day that the weather was not so good and we visited some other places in the island, like El Cotillo and Betancuria and the most famous beach in the island, Corralejo, which was in the other extreme of the island from where we were staying, Jandia.

These first photos are in Corralejo, a white sandy beach with huge huge dunes.

All the beaches we went to in the island had this stone constructions that you can see below, they are refuges to protect sunbathers from the wind, as Fuerteventura can be a bit windy sometimes.

This was our amazing hotel, the Jandia Princess, the beach was only a few meters away, and everything was just wonderful, the perfect place to relax, I completely recommed this hotel to everyone and I would love to go back again one day.

The North Sea in Blakeney, Norfolk

I hardly ever post any personal pictures on my blog, just those that are part of my work, most of them weddings or engagement shoots.

I decided to post one of those photos that I take for myself this time, as I particularly like this image and not only it is one of my favorites, but it was taken with my film camera, which I am getting to use more lately. I also feel particularly proud of my images taken with my film camera.

Film amaze me every time with the beautiful colors and perfect contrast.

This photo was taken during a weekend trip to Norfolk, in Blakeney.

Bridal Shoot on black and white film

After a week waiting for my black and white images from the lab, I finally got them and I can share some of them here.

These are from a session I had with Angela.  If you have visited my blog recently, I posted some of the color images taken with an AE-1 Canon film camera and a roll of Fuji Pro 400 last week. If you haven’t seen those images, you can do by clicking here.

The black and white images on this post were taken with a Praktica camera using a Kodak T-Max 400 roll.

Fuji Pro 400 Film Bridal Shoot

Last Sunday was an exciting day for me. I organized a bridal shoot with Angela in a London park. Angela is already married but she fancied some beautiful photos on her dress in London.

We had a great time together and she was a pleasure to work with, but the main reason I was so excited, was because that day I was shooting film and not digital. These photos here were taken with a AE-1 Canon film camera with a roll of Fuji Pro 400.

I love how film looks, even if that sometimes means to have a less “clean” image or not so sharp. There is something charming about film.
