Photography - Norfolk, Holkham, Weddings and Nudes?

November 07 2011 – 2

Hello all, Above is 'Holkham Hall Snow', having been used during the year in advertising for Holkham Estate this image is now being used again as their Christmas advertising on the back of the Coast Hopper buses. This photograph is available to buy from the website: http://www.coastalphotography.co.uk/shop/11-norfolk/4431-pn241109-holkham-hall-snow This month is proving to be a busy time. Firstly, I am a judge on the national photography competition "Inspired by the Coast" on facebook and twitter, by Isla Negra. Photographs from all around the coast of the UK and Northern Ireland have been sent in so it won't be an easy process to pick the final one. From the 10th November to 24th December I will be exhibiting my landscape photography at Picturecraft Gallery, Lees Yard, Holt, Norfolk, NR25 6HS. New images of this wonderful coast will be there to view and buy. 12th November to 20th November is my first ever 'nude art' exhibit - fine art photography of the naked body. At Kings Lynn Arts Centre, 29 King Street, King's Lynn, Norfolk. PE30 1HA. I will be with three other artists. The exhibition will include my photography, paintings, drawings and sculpture - all of the naked form. We have named the exhibit: "as Nature intended". The first weekend will include drinks and nibbles and entry is free. Come along and have a look - I am very pleased with the reaction I have had so far. On 13th November I will be showing landscapes at Weybourne, The Maltings, so will not be attending the above on that day. 10am to 4pm, entry free. 26th and 27th November is the Holkham Victorian Xmas at Holkham Hall, Holkham Estate, Norfolk. I will be exhibiting coastal landscapes of the Norfolk coast in the Bygones museum area. This will be a fun event as we all have to dress in authentic Victorian period costume. I have ended up - don't ask - as a Victorian Harlet. Please keep in mind that would be showing the ankle! This is a K.I.T.H.E. & Black Knight Historical event so there will be lots of other things going on too. Worth coming along to. For the update on what I have been doing - other than getting ready for exhibits - I managed to squeeze a holiday to Greece in. A very troubled country at the moment but still beautiful and can't wait to go again. I had a slight problem with my camera breaking on the 3rd day, so not many new images but they should be on the website this week. So keep watching. Also on the website, gift vouchers for Portraits are on sale. A special Christmas present or a treat for yourself. Portraits include: individuals, couples, baby bumps, new born, toddlers, families, fashion, lifestyle and nude art - location or in the studio. Any questions please contact. New to Janice Alamanou - Coastal Photography are WEDDINGS. For the past couple of years I have been asked to photograph them and have denied but I have finally been persuaded. A quote from the person asking me to photograph their daughter's wedding: "It's because you care that we know you will do the best job".  How could I refuse? I must admit that after doing several portraits this year I actually surprised myself how much I enjoy working with people. My aim is to create a relaxed, professional but personal atmosphere with a mixture of reportage style images and including a few 'set-up' images if desired. Advertising for this can be seen on the EDP online directory too. Contact for a chat about your special day. Well that's all for now. I hope to see some of you at the exhibits and I will blog again soon. Janice
