Below is a list of some of the things that kept up busy in 2011.
December 2011:
December image If you're reading this then you've already seen the big change this month - our new website. The old site has served us well, but was looking a little ragged around the edges after over 5 years of use. The new site contains additional examples of our work and helps gel together the 3 main areas of our business: wedding, portrait and commercial photography.

When we've not been trawling through past projects to compile images for the new site, we've been out working in Luton, Bristol, Nottingham and Sheffield, and have just finished shooting the stills for a new advertising campaign for 3M's Post-It notes due for release ahead of February.
November 2011:
November image This month we've been up to London photographing Radio One newsreader and broadcaster, Dom Byrne for a new iPhone game from developers: tapmob.

Dom was a real professional and a lovely guy to work with, so we'll be happy to promote the game when it launches.
October 2011:
October image This month Steve was accepted into the Wedding Photojournalist Association. We aren't usually great fans of photographic associations, however the WPJA is a great fit for the work we do, in their own words:
"The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) is a professional organization composed of photojournalists and wedding photographers from around the world. What sets our members apart in the industry is their candid, documentary approach – a distinctly artistic vision toward wedding photography"

Martin has been in London photographing a screening of a new film Tash Alaska - normally film screenings don't lend themselves too well to great photos, except here there were some fantastical moustaches on display!

October has also seen us busy with client meetings - after some successful wedding fairs in September we're now meeting lots of new clients for 2012, and have some very exciting weddings and some new venues that we're look forward to photographing.
September 2011:
September image Wedding fair season! With the main wedding season now drawing to a close we've been busy with meeting next year's brides and grooms. Steve, Mark and Tash are all attending wedding fairs over the following couple of months and we've already taken numerous booking for next year.

Elsewhere Steve has been to Luton and Salford university campuses hosting photography workshops, photographing the launch of a new hotel grading system for Best Western, and we've all been topping up our tans with the lights in the studio.
August 2011:
August imageOur new studio is open for business! After begging, borrowing and renting studio space for several weeks while the builders were in, we're pleased to say that our own dedicated new studio space is up and running.

At 400 sq feet our new space combines a large studio area with plenty of room for large commercial shoots plus additional desk space for for post processing/workflow.

Out of the studio we've covered the Wiltshire's celebrity golf tournament for the 3rd year running, and photographed weddings in Cambridge, Yorkshire, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Somerset and Hanmpshire.

July 2011:
July imageJuly has come and gone, and between the showers we photographed some great summer weddings, caught some sunshine while photographing at the Larmer Tree Festival, and hid from the rain in the studio working for a new client on a product photography account.

The Little Photo Company also moved premises this month, just a few miles down the road, but our new location offers us much more desk space for our expanding team, and a dedicated studio for the growing number of clients requiring studio / product photography.
June 2011:
June imageSummer's here at last! And quite aptly, this month we've been to the seaside photographing students in Bournmouth, while Mark has been photographing Princes William and Harry playing Polo in the sunshine for a London art gallery.

The Little Photo Company has even been caravanning in June - having taken delivery of a vehicle for mobile events, just in time for next month's Larmer Tree Festival and a rural wedding taking place on a bison farm.

Other projects this month without a summer theme have included further supermarket photography, a couple more jobs in Cambridge, and photography of new Autumn/Winter clothing ranges.
May 2011:
May imageThis month we've been working for a new client photographing members of the public getting to grips with the internet. This has included assignments as varied as primary school children in South London learning about safe internet use to a pensioner receiving tuition in his local pub near Falmouth in Cornwall.

The studio has been busy and seen an upgrade of technology with four new Bowens studio heads and Lastolite Hilite - the latter will be very useful for location studio work.

Wedding season is well underway with both Mark and Steve photographing a wedding every Saturday this month and a few in-between.

...and, Tash's maternity leave have finally come to fruition with Martha Mary Lee-Jones born at the end of May.
April 2011:
April imageApril is here, and has blessed many of our wedding clients with some amazing sunshine. Notably Polly and James who I think enjoyed the wedding sunset of the year so far, down in Cornwall this month.

On the corporate side we've managed to get out of the studio and into the sunshine on a few occasions; photographing examinations in Cambridge, a conference in Brighton and some swanky offices in London.
March 2011:
March image The Little Photo Company gets a little bit bigger this month with Mark Leonard joining the team in a permanent role. Mark has been working with us as a freelance photographer since 2009, and has finally become one of the family.

March has been busy in the studio with photography of new Spring/Summer ranges for one of our clothing clients, while out on location we've been becoming expert in Sainsburys store layouts, having photographed media in a number of branches for Capture Marketing throughout the month.
February 2011:
February imageFebruary is usually a quiet month for us, a chance to service our cameras, and even squeeze in a holiday - however wedding photography has been manic. The company photographed three weddings on the first Saturday of February alone.

The commercial side of the business has seen us travelling the length and breadth of the country. In February we covered an event at the Sikorski museum in London, student accommodation in Salford, photography consultancy and a conference in Cambridge, and we've just completed some stills photography to accompany the new Hula Hoops TV ad campaign.
January 2011:
January imageThis January has been our busiest yet and a pretty mixed bag.

We've been on site photographing a new student village in Luton, and the studio has been busy with photographing the new Spring/Summer collection for a clothing company.

Although weddings are pretty quite in January this side of the business has still kept us occupied, exhibiting at the Wedding World exhibition in Bristol and meeting lots of new clients for this and next year.
