Harpenden Gang Show 71st Featured

Another Year another Gang Show. The 71st this year. I wonder if I will be photographing the 100th.

Next year is the last in the Public Hall / Eric Morecombe Hall. The following year the Gang Show will be performed in the new location being built in Rothamstead Park.

I photograph the show through the week. My favourite day is Saturday. Matinee back stage and the evening last Performance.

The matinee is great low light and looking for movement and expressions. Pushes the camera to the limits. Plus I like producing black and white images.

To view the images from the day http://www.richardwashbrooke.photoshelter.com -> Galleries -> and then click on a folder called Scouting

Dan Shelley Master Thatcher Featured

D.G.Shelley Master Thatcher, Hatching Green, Harpenden 15th August 2019

It was a great to see and photograph a thatcher at work today. Dan Shelley is a sixth generation thatcher based in St Albans. www.hertsthatcher.com

If you think this is a dying art you might be surprised to hear that they are as busy as they can be. The average cottage will take 2 people 5 weeks to complete. A good thatcher will have work booked for 1 year and sometimes 3 years in advance. They work throughout the year and rain does not stop them working.

New Website – Richard Washbrooke Wedding Photography – Blog

I had been looking round for a website that would give me the opportunity to show my wedding photography skills using a simple but clean website design.

I had an old website which had started to look a bit outdated so the decision was made to update. I chose Wix.com in the end and I’m really pleased with the end result.
