Arangetram






On Saturday, 6th October, I had the great privilege of shooting at Pavani Gingrich's 'Arangetram', or dance graduation. This was a two hour performance of complex and varied traditional Bharatha Natyam dances, and was a huge family event to which a great many people travelled. It was a joy to see the culmination of twelve years of dedicated learning and practice under her Guru and mother, Dr. Maha Gingrich, and to be able to capture the closeness and pride of their family and friends.

Check out the My Other Limb Facebook page for more photos, and performance updates later this week!

366 Project

A picture of me, every day, for a year.

The general idea was the same as every 365 project (366 as it's a Leap Year): to keep the camera in my hand at all times. Not too tough, as it's usually attached anyway. But I also wanted to make sure I was getting on the other side of the camera more often.

I wanted to do something to track this year of huge changes, and the only constant theme would be me (at least visually). Some photos are artistic, some are rough, some are very casual, some are cheats, some aren't even taken by me, some are thoughtful, and some are spur-of-the-moment. But here's 366 days of me; from long brown hair to short blonde hair, from the UK to the US, from Rogerson to Lloyd, from leaving to arriving.

From and including: Thursday, August 11, 2011 To and including: Friday, August 10, 2012. It is 366 days from the start date to the end date, end date included, or 1 year including the end date.

Where You Been So Long?

The quietness on MOL of late has been due to a few things. Work at the studio has slowed down a lot, which is apparently normal during the summer, and while I am taking MOL bookings for later in the year, a combination of the heat and (I imagine) the fact that this is a new business means that personal work has been scarcer of late. However, not to be discouraged! I will be working part-time at the studio and also (hopefully) at one of several jobs I have applied to, to help keep things ticking along.

A more personal reason that I've been quiet is because of a new addition (actually two, but this one is the reason for the quietness for sure!) to our family. We are the proud, happy, tired, loved-up owners of a rescue puppy named Alberta (Bertie for short). Bertie is a Collie/Australian Shepherd mix (we think), and is an absolutely wonderful dog. She's been with us for almost 6 weeks now and is getting along great. She is enjoying life with our other dog, and our new cat who we adopted at the same time as we got her.

As you might imagine, this has been an extra excuse for some photography...

John & Michelle's Wedding



Just a quick post to say how happy I was to be able to shoot John and Michelle's lovely wedding at the Hotel Concord, Concord, NC two weeks ago. They had a beautiful gallery room for their intimate wedding ceremony, and were absolute troopers posing for outdoor photos in the 32C/90F heat in full wedding regalia. There was a relaxed atmosphere of joy and fun, and probably the funniest cake-smooshing ever! The full album can be seen via the post below (on Flickr) or by visiting the MOL Facebook page. All the best to this brilliant couple!
