Vintage Weekend In Eastbourne

one sunny weekend in October my Friend Juan and lovely Ladies of Proud Parkers Photogaphy took a trip to Eastbourne for a vintage shoot. Here with my Juan ready for a day of serious hard work!!


so we took ourselves back in time to the 1940’s and  Juan looking very cool, looking like Frank Sinatra. on the Beach a little  gathering of friends  met up with us  for a picnic and a few glasses of fizz and a few giggles on the beach, my idea of a perfect photo shoot!




we were blessed with fine weather and really had a fun day, I decided would try and do a similar image to the famous Jerry Hall and Norman Parkinson Shot which involved me  balancing on this groyne. Was a bit of a challenge after a few glasses of fizz, what you can’t see that the other side of it was a 4ft drop Juan was standing just out of the pic ready to catch me!



but what a giggle getting me up there in the first place!  Natasha of Proud Parkers Photography had one chance of the shot as I was shaking like a leaf. Luckily there was no trips to A & E!



Now the shot we wanted to do for a long time, at last the everything was in place to do it, the sea was calm enough and not that cold considering!! so we waded out complete with umbrellas! passers by must of thought we were completely bonkers, and they wouldn’t wrong either! it was worth it


great day was had by all, although 2 people ended the day slightly wetter than they started but did they care? of course not!

the lovely ladies of Proud Parkers certainly did us proud.
