>Wallace Artworks Ad

>Just a little post to let you see the rough unfinished promo Ad, which was filmed a few weeks ago. There are still changes to be made to it, but it’s too exciting to keep it under wraps and not show you what we have so far…….

I will of course post up the full finished final cut version….. as soon as I get it! 😀

>Casting Call…….(yes another one!)

>Hello folks…..

I’m looking to expand my portfolio for my “Trash the Dress” gallery.
I’m looking for couples to have some photos taken in unusual locations whilst wearing their wedding attire.
If you think you might be interested, drop me a line info@helenwallace.co.uk or reply on Facebook

>Carol & Steven, Orocco Pier South Queensferry Wedding Photographer

>Back in March, I had the honour of photographing Carol and Steven for their wedding at Orocco Pier.

What a lovely couple, great fun and down to earth. The day went well despite a few issues with Restaurant staff. I have to say that the staff who were working on the wedding were great, but I was extremely disappointed with the way I was treated as a paying customer in their restaurant.
(This wasn’t the only hitch regarding the venue on the day or in the run up, but it’s perhaps best not to go into detail on here, as it’ll then become a rant. This blog is supposed to be about my lovely couple.)
However, this shouldn’t have impacted on Carol and Steven and indeed you can see from the photos that they had a wonderful day.  Orocco Pier is a very popular choice of venue and so I assume my experience is a minority one.
Here are some images from the day………

>Print your OWN photos

>Well….. as you know digital photography has meant that we all have image files stored on our devices, but we are printing our photos less and less.

I’m often asked if I will print other people’s photos straight from their camera on to canvas etc. It’s not a service I offer for various reasons, but mainly because it wouldn’t be very cost effective for the client.
I have however found a solution for you…… you have taken a photo you’re really proud of, you want a good quality printed product so that you can admire your handy work……. well….
I’d suggest and recommend Pinhole Press. Pinhole Pro, brought to you via GF Smith, who are a large supplier to the PRO photography market, has expanded it’s facilities to offer services to consumers. So you know you’re going to get a good quality product, but at a consumer level price point. Fab! so here’s the link…….. Pinhole Press
Take some pleasure in photographs again…… have them printed! 😉

>Baby Charlotte, Edinburgh Baby Portrait Photographer

>A couple of months back I was contacted by Charlotte’s Mummy enquiring about a shoot for little Charlotte.

They were going to Australia for several weeks and whilst there, had planned to have Charlotte baptised.
Charlotte’s Mum wanted some nice simple classic portraits of her in her lovely dress before they went.
Here are some of the results…….

>Monica and Alex, Location Engagement Shoot Edinburgh

>Monica and Alex are due to get married this month. When they booked me they took advantage of the offer of a complimentary engagement shoot.

We did this shoot a few weeks ago, although ordinarily it would be done with a longer amount of time before the wedding.
We had a stroll through a local park and along the canal and they brought their gorgeous wee boy with them.
Here are some of the images from the day……

>Long overdue update!

>Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I updated my blog, so I thought I’d do some catching up today.
Last time I posted I was asking for volunteers to help me with the filming of a little promo ad for Wallace Artworks.
The filming, whilst it had to be postponed, did go well when it went ahead. I had a great day, despite still being a little swollen from the car accident I had had a few weeks before. Everybody who was involved was great. Much praise must go to Adam Troop of Inspire Video Production who did a great job on the day.
Some images from the shoot can be seen on my galleries here:

>Casting Call…….

>Hello folks…..

I’m putting a call out for a request for people to model for the day.
I will be setting up several shoots to be filmed at various times throughout the day on Saturday 3rd March.
Set ups will consist of:
An Engagement shoot
A Trash The Dress shoot
A family portrait (in the studio)
A family portrait (on location)
A Newborn/ baby shoot (in the studio)
An Actors headshot
A boudoir shoot (in the studio)
A male boudoir
A model portfolio
A location/ lifestyle shoot
A band promo
Coverage of a live gig
A commercial/ PR / Corporate shoot
I need a different person/ group of people for each set-up. You must agree to be filmed whilst being photographed and sign a model release form.
Each set-up won’t be a full length shoot, as the priority will be for filming and getting through as many set-ups as possible. However, you will be given a 6×8″ mounted print (to fit a 10×8″ frame) of your favourite image of the day (worth £25) as a thankyou for taking part.
If you want to take part, you must be available on Saturday 3rd March 2012. Email me at info@helenwallace.co.uk or contact me via Facebook

>Products

>Just wanted to share a couple of photos of some recent customer orders that have come in…..

The quality is superb, beautiful looking products…….. our clients are going to be very pleased with their orders!
Remember, here at Wallace Artworks a full product pricelist is always available to you, any time you ask. There are no hard sell techniques, the price will be the same regardless if you place your order at your viewing or not, unlike at some larger “vulture” studios.
There is never any obligation to purchase a product from us after your photo shoot…. but believe me, you are going to be delighted if you do!

>Midge Ure, Jam House Edinburgh Live Music Photographer

>Last week, the legendary Midge Ure was performing a little mini Scottish solo acoustic tour.

I had the very great privelidge of being able to attend some of the gigs. He was superb, as always.
I’m sure there already some online reviews, so I won’t bore you with the analysis of each night’s show….. instead I will share some images from the Edinburgh Jam House gig of Thurs 16th Feb……
