Civvies Train for the 'Frontline'

Members of the Territorial Army have recently deployed to Cyprus to endure some action packed training for the 'Frontline.'

108 members of the Royal Mercian and Lancastrian Yeomanry (RMLY), have recently been boosting their training in an effort to prepare for future tours of Afghanistan. The predominantly Midlands based soldiers, have endured the soaring heats of Cyprus, in Afghan like conditions, to prepare, should their services be required in 2012.

All of the Soldiers, who also have civilian jobs, take time away from home to train, so they can fulfil their vital role in boosting numbers on the ground in an operational theatre.  

The Territorial Army, who have a good 35,000 soldiers, of varying cap-badges, are a vital role in todays modern warfare. 

For a full feature written by Robert Platt please visit The Leader for day 1, of a 5 day feature on the RMLY.

Going up in the world

After a few months of hard work, long hours and a lack of time spent with my wife, things are on the up. Having got my work published with Status Quo, gaining Runner Up Professional Army Photographer of The Year 2010 and having a 9 page article about me in Turning Pro magazine, things are looking good.

I have also just submitted my paperwork to gain the next level in professional accreditation with the British Institute of Professional Photography. I am currently a Licentiateship, but have now, after 18 months of hard work, submitted my papers to become an Associate. 

With my photography coming on nicely, and a new website to plan, 2011 is looking bright!

Thanks to all of you that support my blog, and thanks to my wife Michelle for putting up with me!

The Old Barn

A couple of weeks ago, I came across these two old barns, resembling what looked like a pair of old chicken barns. After an initial scout about, I organised another shoot with a guy called Rob. We had worked together before, and I thought he would suit the surroundings very well. After finding the owner of the barns and explaining what I wanted to do, he was more than happy for us to fill our boots.

The shoot was all planned. I even had another photographer, Paul Morrison, with me. Paul is a colleague and friend, and was keen when I asked him if he wanted to tag along. We got into location, I showed everyone around, and discussed what I wanted from the day, and we started.

The location was, in my opinion, a goldmine! For my particular style of photography, this was heaven! The place was a mess, just how I wanted it. The roof had collapsed in places, there were all sorts of weird and wonderful things about this place, too many to mention in fact.

I hope you enjoy viewing them
