A week in the life of a top British Film Photographer (who’s also my big sister!)

There are many places to draw inspiration in life. One of them for me is my big sister.

Like me, she took the plunge of leaving a life with a regular pay check behind to follow her dreams.

Quitting her job as a lawyer in London, she decided to make a career out of one of her biggest passions – film photography.

It has been amazing over the last few years to see the stunning images she has captured, and to see her become more established in the industry.

This is a short film she created using Premier Pro to capture a week in the life of a film photographer. It doubly amazes me that she has made this momentous career move whilst also having a baby. My nephew Noah is now 2 and features a lot in the video, partly just because he’s such a cute model (not a biased auntie talking I promise!)

I’m just getting into the world of making mini videos. The one I made from my time on music cruise Cayamo was done on iMovie (http://youtu.be/RE7Z5AVFbxU) and I’ve also heard of a program called “Vine” that takes 3 seconds video clips that can be edited into something cool.

I’m looking forward to doing some more experimenting!

If anyone has any other cool programs you like to use for this kind of thing, I’d love to hear about them!

It’s all about the family time

After a busy couple of months, and lots of travel including being in 7 airports in the last week alone, I have finally made it to the UK.

I’m really enjoying taking it easy and catching up with friends and family, and thankfully the weather is holding out so far too!

I have espcially loved seeing my gorgeous 18 month old nephew, Noah, who has so much personality and so much energy. The photo of him above was taken in Richmond Park in London by my sister Steph, who is a super talented film photographer. You can see more of her lovely photos on her website www.callaghansmithportraits.com

It’s just a short blog this week, but I wanted to wish everyone a fantastic weekend!
