It didn’t take long before they started clowning around. They were a lot of fun to shoot.

From Previous shots
It’s been a busy week on the work and personal front this week so I haven’t had much chance to write much .I would, however like to share this with you all.
On Sunday at a family party I had the pleasure of meeting and having the chance to photograph Torolf Nordbø and his wife Marit. For you non-Norwegians Torolf is best known for his comedy revue work and his music. They have kindly allowed me to publish a couple of the pictures I took of them, and I have linked to a music video starring Torolf ,and well-know Norwegian singer songwriter Rita Eriksen
A big thanks to Torolf and, Marit for being such great sports.

Enjoy the video

How To Make a Haggis

Thats right it says “Make a Haggis” because as any self respecting Scot will tell you nothing tastes better than those that are caught in the highlands when in season. At all other times you have to make do with factory farmed imitations. Still you can get very near the taste of the real thing if you find the right s and someone who knows how to put them together.

So here goes.

1. Find yourself a tame master chef that has an over the average interest in Scottish culture:

2. Hopefully Nr 1. Has a kitchen big enough

3. Invite friends and make sure there is plenty of Whisky at hand.

4. Get Chef (Nr 1) to explain what to do while not trying to look too sceptical.

5. Try not to laugh when The chef is talking.

6. Try not to look too horrified . More whisky can be used to calm first time nerves.

7. Quality control is of utmost importance

I was writing an update to me gear page and looking at some shots I took with my FM2. This is one of my favs. I thought I’d share with you.

This is a shot I took at a miners strike demo in London back in the eighties. Policemen and women forming a corden before the march arrives .I love the way he has his hand on the policewoman just like he is caught in an embarrassing moment.I shouted to get the policeman to turn his head and snapped the shot.
I used my Nikon FM2 and a 100mm E lens . Film was Ilford XP2. It’s a fun candid of a serious moment .
This is a trial scan from my new Epson V700. .
