The year is still whizzing, I'm afraid I fell behind on my monthly updates again! Here are a few of my June Highlights:
As you may have seen in my previous blog post, I met Tom and Elena at Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum, Essex, to take a few portraits before I photograph their wedding there in October. It was quite a damp morning but we still had a lovely time and got some lovely lush green portraits of the two of them!
It was a busy month for commercial work, with consultancy work and corporate shoots. I was the official photographer for the TEDx Chelmsford event at Anglia Ruskin University, which was fantastic. You can read more about the day on my commercial blog, here: http://blog.jaynelloyd.co.uk/2015/07/corporate-event-photography-tedx-chelmsford/

I've carried on pushing my personal projects further and am working towards putting them into something at some point too. Being in the new house I've been exploring that a lot with my camera, which I'm really enjoying.
I had my haircut by the fab Verity of the Vanity Box so thought it was time to update my profile picture!
Exhibition of the Month: I went to Revelations: Experiments in Photography at the Science Museum which was very interesting. It was great to see a lot of photography I've seen in books up on the wall. Particularly a piece by Ori Gersht, who I saw speak at Photo London last month. They also had the Kraszna-Krausz and First Book Awards 2015 on display in the media space, which I particularly enjoyed.
Learn: I learnt a lot from the exhibitions I visited, and have been doing a lot of general reading etc, but didn't go to any dedicated 'learning' events this month as such.
Make more art: Still enjoying Instagramming in a more creative way, and exploring my new house in an abstract way too!
Enter more competitions: I entered even more competitions this month - still no wins, but having the the deadlines to work towards is helps push me along and encourages me to look more closely at my work, which has to be a good thing!
I think my favourite montage this month was probably this one from 15th June!
Well, that was my June - how was yours?
