Matt Lucas visits Aylward Primary School

I was very lucky to be asked to photograph a special celebration event at Aylward Primary School in Stanmore which was attended by former pupil Matt Lucas. Matt is a delightful man and was complimentary about his teachers and school years at Aylward. The event was in celebration of the new school building situated in Pangbourne Drive. The atmosphere at the school was warm and welcoming. Clearly Matt has had many accomplishments, some not so well known to children under 11 but they were wowed when they heard that he had voice-over parts in Paddington, Gnomeo & Juliet, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee (in which he voiced both!)  –  their excitement was definitely a highlight for me. Matt was a real inspiration to the children; talking about some difficult times in his life which have played a part in bringing him to where he is today.

Being a mobile photographer has it’s challenges, setting up a studio in clients homes being the first of them. A sense of space can turn an ordinary photo into a great photo. I was blessed yesterday to have lots of space, in a perfect environment, with a lovely family.

Thank you. Enjoy!

Listening to Clients

Listening to Clients … I go to photo jobs with lots of ideas in my head, this maternity shoot was no different. I aim to produce a selection of images in 3 settings; outdoors if possible and indoors with two different backgrounds, contemporary studio and something different.

I’ve photographed many pregnant tummies now with various props. I still love the sensual maternity photos the most, but I have to say, this teddy prop in this position was just great, (the arm prop was dad’s idea), the bubbles make it perfect! I would have spent an eternity trying to get the teddy to sit just how I wanted it and I would not have thought of that. The best thing is, asking for suggestions from clients just gives me a lot more options … I never stop listening and learning (and I wouldn’t want it any other way).

Thank you and I’m already looking forward to photographing the newborn in January 2018.

I never saw myself agreeing to a Boudoir photo shoot but was persuaded by a good friend of mine of a similar age to do a Boudoir shoot with her. She is a pretty fantastic woman with more energy than you’ve seen in any 20 or 30 year old, absolutely buzzes she does. My client (friend) looks fabulous at forty something and her hubby wanted to treat her for her birthday to a photo shoot. She works out regularly and runs her own business (amongst other things) part of Isagenix which help people with weight management, energy and performance through natural nutrition. This, coupled with her exercise routine for has proved itself; she looks fabulous.

There were a wide selection of photos, outfits, poses, all very beautiful and tasteful.

This is what she had to say …

“Thank you so much to sadiejanephotography for my fantastic, fun & relaxing ” fab at 40ish” photoshoot.

Well thank you  –  2 happy ladies!!

Thomas Gray 250 Superkart @ Castle Combe August 2016

Castle Combe  –  29th August 2016

Going into the penultimate round of this year’s British BSA Superkart championship at Castle Combe, Thomas Gray was full of anticipation knowing after this meeting there would only be one more round left. We knew we had to score points in all the remaining races to have any chance at this of the title to become the British BSA Champion in the very first year of trying. With Tom being the youngest competitor; still only 18 years old, it would be a huge achievement. With this in mind our preparation was set once again for reliability rather than outright pace.

Tom was advised to take things steady and feel his way into the circuit, the team were confident that at this super-fast venue with an average lap speed of 101mph and a top speed of 135 mph it would be a track that would suit Tom very well.

The weather was beautiful, something we have been blessed with throughout the season luckily. Unfortunately, not quite so lucky with the kart early on at Castle Combe; a few problems throughout the day and Tom taking a hit at 110mph, scary stuff indeed, although Tom and the Superkart seemed ok.

However, it was soon discovered that the reed valve in the engine had been destroyed lifting the rear wheels which in turn, over revved the engine resulting in the previously unseen damage, with no spare parts it was a mad dash around the paddock to seek out replacements, with the engine back together and seconds to spare he made it on to the grid for race one during which Tom set a fantastic lap time of 1.15.045. The race was brought to a premature end with a red flag when one of our competitors Luke Plain was involved in an accident and taken to hospital suffering with suspected concussion. Thankfully Luke appears to be fine and we hope to see him back racing soon.

Race 2, Tom made an excellent start; passing people in the more powerful class ahead, Tom was in his element and clearly enjoying his race. Lapping in 1.11.094 now he was really beginning to find his stride; having a fantastic battle with his nearest rival Mark Newton and separated by only tenths as they passed the pit straight, lap after lap. However, on lap 9 the red flags were once again brought out and the race stopped, this time unfortunately after a huge crash involving Roy Bennett who had to be cut from his Superkart after suffering a massive impact that resulted in Roy being taken to hospital by air ambulance. His condition update was that Roy had suffered a broken neck, punctured lung and internal bleeding and was put into an induced Coma at the circuit.

The team decided to withdraw from the final race of the day firstly due to safety concerns and also as the third race was not part of the British Championship. Tom had done what was asked of him and secured a respectable overall 5th on the day and bagged good points ready for our final meeting of the year at Pembrey in Wales.

At this moment in time the Teams thoughts and feeling are 100% focused on the well- being of Roy and all the Bennett family and team. We wish Roy a rapid and healthy recovery.

Thomas Gray 250 Superkart wins trophy at Donington Park

Thomas Gray’s superb driving, wins his first trophy at Donington Park; just his fourth competition in the Superkart.

A gorgeous day at Donington on Sunday. Mission for the weekend was to capture video in order for Thomas to make his own inspiring promotional video. Thomas had prepared well for how he wants to portray his thoughts and ideas on racing, to inspire young people to follow their dreams and believe in themselves. No doubt a busy project for the Summer for Tom as he takes a break now from studying at the MSA. I look forward to bringing that to you when it is ready.

Having suffered severe damage to his engine during his last Donington visit meant that Thomas was entering this time knowing that if he was unfortunate enough to experience any further problems – there was no back up engine. He was also faced with running in a new engine during the qualifying session, holding him back a little from being able to achieve the best possible grid position for the first race.

Not only did he run it in nicely he achieved the necessary to secure a decent position which led to a 2nd place finish in the first race, followed by a 3rd place in the second.

Thomas studied everyone’s points and had worked out that he had one person to beat in order to secure a first place overall for the day. He was both nervous and excited as he sat on the grid waiting for the race to begin. After a couple of laps it soon became apparent that all was not well and he very quickly appeared in the pit lane to assess the way forward.

The throttle cable had been loose during the first two races and on discovery, it was tightened up for the third race, but this meant too much fuel was going to the engine and Thomas could only use half throttle, and an additional problem with the tyres forced him to go slower.

Luckily Thomas was soon back out; finishing the race was very important to secure some points in the BSA championship. He achieved sixth place, resulting in an overall 3rd.  Naturally Thomas was initially a bit disappointed, having set his sights on a 1st place, but it wasn’t long before it turned to appreciation of winning his first trophy racing the Superkart.

As sponsors we were extremely delighted.  Well Done Thomas.
