Fantasy, Magic, Movies......there's so much to shoot. Models, families, children, pets.....
Another past time of mine when I was young was writing, I love coming up with narrative tales and fictional stories. As a young 12 year old I used to sit in front of my typewriter, old man, and write out stories most weekends. With my friends as a young man such as Tim Jefferies we would write stories together and sometimes even film them. As with my cousin when I was about 10 we used to film little horror stories together. Which mainly involved one of burying ourselves in the back garden and filming each other coming out of the ground. Since I came back from the USA I have wrote numerous stories and even managed to put together a collection of four short stories, sadly nothing published. As I grew older I began to explore other types of stories and even laid out a series of children's books. As I approach my forties now, I feel if I do not do anything with these ideas, then nothing will ever get done with them. In the future when I die they most likely will be binned, so that is what has spurred me into the next phase of my life. Combining all my hobbies into one.
For now I will be concentrating on my photography and still do the portraits, but soon will be leaning towards film making, I soon will be on the look out for someone who can run my photography business as I concentrate on the film making. Currently I have set up a Film Production company called Portrait Films to handle any video within my business. My business and I so far are the main shareholders and from now until April 2017 there are options for anyone to invest in and become a shareholder in the company as well. So if anyone out there fancies a yearly % of the company, get in touch to Pestridge Portraits on Facebook using this link:
As for now it's business as usual, creating great Portraits for those who wish to see themselves in a different way.
As well as the usual way of photographing portraits....
