The Christmas Auction.

Christmas Auction 2015

It’s time for the annual London and Surrey VizWhizz charity Christmas auction.  Organised by the wonderful Lucy, this annual auction attracts some great prizes and all the proceeds go to a collection of voluntary Vizsla rescue and charity organisations.  It’s a fun time when everyone has a chance to bid on all sorts of prizes and know that their money is going to the best of causes.

The lovely Otty who recently died from polymyositis and who was owned by Lucy. Research into and treatment of this pernicious disease is just one of the many good causes that benefit from the auction.

I will be donating a Home Shoot worth £120 which consists of a studio shoot, combined with an outdoor session, to get a lovely set of images of your prized hound!  The shoot comes with a free set of watermarked images of approximately 0.5 mpix size which is ideal for use on social media.  However, once the shoot gallery is up on my website all sorts of wonderful choices are available for purchase that would allow you to enjoy your photographs.

Should you not be local to my location then some travelling costs might be incurred… please see my website for details.

The last charity prize shoot I did was of the handsome Csaba, below, and his gallery can be seen here:  http://www.nickandersonphoto.co.uk/Petra-and-Csaba/

They Shoot Horses Don’t They?

Kings Park 2nd Proofs-3744Not my usual fare but I really enjoyed the change of pace when recently shooting for Kings Park Equine Clinic.  A fabulously equipped establishment who were updating their website and needed a set of updated images to publish gave me a great opportunity to broaden my horizons.

The vets were all equipped with travelling test equipment in their vehicles and most of their work is done at a client’s stables, but just in case a horse came from a distance away the clinic also had everything necessary on site.

To offset the images of treatment and veterinary equipment the practice also wanted some shots of healthy animals in a less clinical environment so off to a local field to get some more picturesque images… all of which went very well.

So quite a change from capturing Gun Dogs racing around at 40 mph but, nevertheless, a great fun shoot.
