Photography - Seriously - come and look!

A self portrait by my daughter Jessica

I visited Clarissa Draper's blog this morning Listen to the Voices where she was talking about getting a photograph for an author's bio, and this made me think it was about time I blew my elder daughter's trumpet. She is in her third year at the University of Wales, Newport studying Photography for fashion and advertising and she will be heading into the big bad world in just a few months time to earn a living. I wanted to share some of her pictures with you and invite you to visit her website: The first picture you see on her website is my younger daughter by the way.

This next picture is one of my all time favourites of hers

Probably closely followed by these ones

She has been commissioned by young bands, hopeful actors and actresses, hair salons and even company executives!

Enjoy! Please feel free to contact her if you like her work or if you hear of anyone needing a photoshoot, of course! (She doesn't do wedding photography I'm afraid)


  1. Wow, Dominic, now there's a photographer!! She's an artist at her craft. Talent like this really illustrates my previous point. She studied, she worked at it, in order to become a professional.
    Plenty of people have a good eye for scenery, etc., but they are still just people with a good eye and a camera. They're not photographers.
    Your daughter, however, very much is.

  7. Wow, these pics are great, Dominic. Your daughter has such a grasp of lighting and colour. She makes the subjects leap off the page.

    And that self portrait is lovely. She's beautiful.

    I'm now a follower.


  8. yay .. welcome Jai! You must, of course, understand that the picture of Jess is touched up in photoshop - which is an integral part of her course and she is actually much better at it now. Not that I don't think she is beautiful anyway!!

  12. Just Popped over from N.R. Williams' blog. And... so glad I did. Beautiful photography.

  13. The first two shots are stunning, Dominic. It is easy to see why she is already being commissioned!

  14. I should have mentioned that the photo of the man posing as a boxer was submitted to a magazine along with photos from several professional photographers, and hers was selected to go on the cover XD

    ... and a huge welcome to all of you visiting for the first time!

  15. Hello. Thanks for visiting my blog and posting my blogfest.
    Your daughter is very talented. These photos are beautiful. I wish her best of luck in the future.
    Also, best of luck to you.

  16. Hi,

    Just love the classy pic of Jessica: her style is very theatre artistic and I can see her doing well with mag *cover* images: book covers, too, because there's a distinct emotional edge to the listed pics. A very talented young lady. ;)


  17. What a beautifully talented daughter you have...not many parents get to have both. :)

    Can't wait to check out her site.
