On Sunday the 16th June 2019, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Wedding of Vanessa and James at The Old Golf House Hotel, Huddersfield. A Whisper Hotel set in the heart of Yorkshire, with 3 acres of beautiful grounds.
It's been a busy few weeks at Danny Thompson Photography which is why our latest blog is a bit late! We’ve been networking with other businesses, visiting some beautiful new venues and getting some fabulous clients on board, including Dan Keane from Minds Matter and Joanne from ABC. I've even managed to squeeze in a bit of family time with the wife and kids whilst they've had school holidays.
I'm always looking for new ways to promote Danny Thompson Photography in and around my local area of Halifax, West Yorkshire, so recently I became the proud sponsor of Sean McCormack, a 1st team player for Siddal ARLFC. I try my best to support local causes, ventures and businesses whenever I can and it's great to be involved with such a successful club! It is one of the leading amateur Rugby League Clubs in the country.
Over the last few weeks I have been working with 3 guys who have taken it upon themselves to try make a dent in the World’s Mental Health Crisis. UNMASKED. A Peer to Peer Mental Health Support APP.
They are 3 typical local lads, Doug, Logan & Robin who I met at a Halifax Business Networking Event at Halifax Business Centre. We had a laugh, cracked a few bad jokes and then arranged a meeting to discuss working together on a Commercial Photography Shoot.
We met, over a cold one, to talk about what was important for me to capture in their photos. It was then that I learnt each had their own story, their own personal reasons for trying to make a difference. Quite quickly it was obvious that the photos needed to show their struggles, as a way to connect to their audience but to show the positivity they have for life and the new project UNMASKED.
There's nothing quite like visiting the old haunts from your youthful childhood days! As I made my way to Christ Church, Liversedge and later on to Gomersal Lodge Hotel, a recent venue for a beautiful wedding shoot, I was reminded of the many times I had trudged my way to school during my teenage years.
#Blog3 - Every now and again you stumble across someone that will grab your attention. For whatever reason they are intriguing. I began to follow a fellow local business after a social media post made me laugh out loud.
He was a Belter by business and by character. A recent shoot for my Commercial Photography led me to a Yorkshire mans workshop.
#Blog2-I had the privilege of working with Pebble and Pine, a growing company of specialist coffee roasters! It's something a bit different for my Commercial Photography and I loved creating some exciting, bespoke images to be used on their website and in their promotional material.
Most people who drink coffee will never give a second thought to the taste or the process that's gone into their morning wake up brew. I know I don't, but today I discovered that It's an art in its own form!
#Blog1 - I have taken the plunge and started up a blog! I have done this for a couple of reasons, one is so I can be more connected to you guys, you can see me in action and in a little more depth, with pictures (obviously as I am a photographer).
Secondly, I will link to who I work with in the industry for my Wedding Photography, Commercial Photography, Lifestyle Photography and what's happening in the Studio.... Also I am wanting to basically give you a vip look at my company, behind the scenes of my shoots in the studio, on set or at a venue.
