hiring an accountant

We needed an accountant asap. We all got it into our heads the tax man was going to audit us and once an idea takes hold it’s hard to shake. So to make sure we were ready for the worst we needed to get our finances in order and get an accountant sorted and hired.

In the north east they are fairly easy to come by but we ended up going for north east accountants based in DarlingtonĀ http://www.accountants-northeast.co.uk/darlington/

It made sense. They were local, had been recommended and were quite cheap considering.

So we went for it, financial advice is worth it’s weight in gold so we weren’t to bothered at the extra investment. We expect it to save us cash in the long run. We’ll keep you up to date as our adventures in tax returns continues.

Promotional oddsmonkey pictures

We were recently approached by local matched betting firm oddsmonkey to take some promotional photos for an upcoming campaign. We were delighted to be asked and jumped at the chance to be involved.

I can’t publish the photos here as they are being used as part of an advertising campaign but we were delighted with the outcome and we think our customer was too.

It was an interesting day and something completely different from our usual wedding/portrait work that takes up the majority of our time. We are always willing to stretch our muscles in any department so if you have any need of any kind of interesting or artistic style photography then please contact us.

The oddsmonkey review posted on their site is quite thorough and shows the commitment and quality of their work. We have a similar apporach to work ourselves. Work hard and get rewarded is our motto and so far it paying dividends. We work long days and sometimes nights but our business is growing rapidly and we couldn’t be happier.

Spray Paint Photography

I’ve always been interested in different types of photography. One thing I’ve always been interesting is combining traditional forms of art with photography. Photographing art work is a big part of my business these days. People want to catolougue collections, take photos for an auction or insurance purposes and some want to create brochures to advertise their museum or event.

I recently came across some photos of art that had been done using spray paints and was intrigued to have a go. The colours were very vivid in real life and even more so on the photography. I enquired about what spray paints had been used and discovered that ral aerosol spray paints had been used. Ral and pantone spray paints are very popular right now for their wide range of vivid colours.

Getting colours to pop in photography takes practice, the lighting has to be perfect. I bought some spray paints to practice with. The colours were amazing in real life but I was struggling to recreate the brilliance on the camera.

Daylight was no good so I set it some paints up in the studio with some professional lights and I started to get somewhere. I don’t want to post the results yet as I haven’t got them to a standard I’m happy with.

I found these pictures interesting as well.
