Having finished working on photos from Holly's shoot at West Wittering, today I'll be working mostly on photos I took of Sakura for a couple of clothing companies. These were shot early one morning at a skate park in Burgess Hill. Actually, all three shoots with Sakura have been early morning shoots. The first one, a nude shoot at Shoreham for Deviant Nation, will take some beating though.

I'm starting to put together plans for the first shoots exclusively for the Showcase Book Project (SBP). Given the financial investment in this project the final images need to be something special. I already have two models who wish to be involved over the 2 year shooting schedule and I anticipate that interest from other models I have already approached will increase with the first positive results. Goes without saying, I suppose. The first year of this project will run alongside the solo book project featuring Holly so in every sense, the solo project is like a trial run for the SBP. Framed prints from the SBP shoots will be exhibited locally and at galleries in London and Brighton starting next year, all being well. I'm broadening the scope of the SBP to include more clothed figure-in-landscape images but the primary focus is still nudes. Further details will be added to the project page on my website.

After buying a 50mm prime for my K10D last year I don't think I've taken it off the camera. I found I was using the Sigma 50mm macro on the KM 7D more than any other lens so a 50mm on the Pentax was an obvious choice. I 'm starting to feel the limitations though and will be adding another lens or two in the the next couple of months - something wider, possibly the new Pentax 35mm macro, and something longer. I'd love a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 but I'd really prefer something a little earier to carry around.
