Tea Break Tog Awards
Tea Break Tog, sadly now defunct, was an incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable online community whose podcasts and natural light course taught me a lot of what I know about the mechanics of photography.
In fact, had I not stumbled upon Tea Break Tog a while ago, I honestly don’t think I’d have this website and be writing on it as I just wouldn’t know how to expose a photograph properly. However, I must have done okay with these images below for them to be short-listed!
I’m now a children and family photographer in Edinburgh, but it’s not only children and families I photograph, and not only in Edinburgh I do it. In fact, before I got into portrait work, I really enjoyed taking landscapes, and often still do. It’s not difficult to find fabulous subject matter on your doorstep when you come from Inverness-shire, I’ll tell you!
Some of this “other stuff” I’ve submitted to the Tea Break Tog weekly competition and are pictured here in this post, and I’m really chuffed to have been short-listed four times for their competitions.
If you’re at all interested in taking photographs, their Facebook group is definitely the place on the net to be, to blether with likeminded people, share images, ask questions, and learn LOADS!
Normally I never bother entering photography competitions, not because I have anything against them, but more because I usually forget.
But as I’m now primarily a children and family photographer, I love having a good nose in the Tea Break Tog group – the work of the photographers of lots of different genres in there really inspires me.
