Wildlife in the Garden

June 28, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Sorry it has been a while since I did a blog post, so here is a brief one. I have to admit our back garden is a total mess. I don't really have much of a green thumb, plus the fact that here in central Texas for most of the year the weather is set to "Broil" so any attempt to do any gardening or even enjoy the garden will usually result in me coll...

More fun & unusal things to do in Austin

November 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Last May, I wrote about the delight of visiting a Synagogue and participating in the transcribing of a new Torah. Well during the first weekend of November is when the Pow-wow is in Austin. If you have never been, it is a wonderful experience. A pow-wow is a coming together of Native Americans/ First Nation of various tribes for celebration and co...

Happy "Brexit 1776"

July 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Growing up in the UK, there was never an actual day of "National Identity", the closest we got was "Bonfire Night" on November 5 where we celebrate the attempt to assassinate the King and Parliament, but it certainly was not a national public holiday (Its a British thing, part of our sense of humour, just roll with it).. But it was a totally diffe...

Trying out a new Studio in South Austin

June 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Now, while I can have clients come over to my humble (and somewhat cluttered) abode for a photoshoot, we do not have a dedicated space that allows us to get truly creative. Yes, we can handle family shoots, headshoots/portraits and boudoir, but for something really elaborate, to really push the skills a studio would be nice. And finding a suitable...

Gay Pride-Vienna 2014

June 14, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
This is Gay-Pride month where many cities around the world celebrate inclusiveness and collectively thumb their noses at... well, no need to go there I guess, lest I offend. Anyway, for one reason or another I have never been to a Gay Pride Parade - I don't actually recall seeing any or whether there were any during the time I lived in London or O...

Here for the Summer

June 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
One of the activities I get to do each year is photograph the new crop of fresh faced interns for the program that my Wife Runs. It is always fun to watch these fresh faced youngsters arrive in Austin and then as the summer goes on, grow close together until the end of the program when its time to wrap up. As part of the wrap up, they get to travel...

Maker Faire - how does your garden grow.

May 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I love Austin Maker Faire. Its more than an "Arts and craft" fair, while there are vendors there, they are also about demonstrating and how to explore creative side. But essentially it is where all the geeks gather and get to show of their projects not only to each other, but to the general public in order to pass on that inspiration - and to fan t...

On Sunday April 23, my wife spotted a little notice on one of the "things to do in Austin this weekend" websites - at the Dell Jewish Community Center they were transcribing a new Torah and the general public were invited to come and participate in the event and actually be part of the process...

A Victorian Flash Crowd for April Fools..

April 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Believe me, the title is accurate. Last Weekend we were in St Louis for a 1860’s period ‘ball’ and to meet up with some very dear friends of ours. Part of the planned event was a daytime activity so that folks could show of their daytime Victorian Garb, and an evening Ball where the real finery comes out on display. For this year, the St Louis M...

Too Sexy for my (Deadpool) boxers...

March 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Well first off I need to apologize for being somewhat tardy in my blog posts, I had planned on writing this post a few days after Valentines day. A few folks liked the Valentines picture I had posted, and thank you for the feedback, but I must admit I did make several mistakes with it. Once I started processing it, I realized that I had made an err...

Be My Valentine

February 14, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Happy Valentines Day everyone. When I was growing up there was not much of a deal around Valentines Day, this was in the UK in the 1970's so that may be as good an explanation as any. The only "Valentines Day" thing we ever did in Junior School (erm, I think that is K thru 7th grade? None of this modern stuff thank you). Anyway, all of us in clas...

Capturing the joy of the moment.

January 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
When working with Josh and Ethan for their shoot, I wanted to show "them" and by that I mean I wanted to capture the brotherly love that these two had for each other. Working with them was ideal, because doing a 'normal' by-the-numbers shoot would not do them justice, yes I could capture their likeness and make their parents proud, but I want to pr...

Fun with Twins and treating them equally

January 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Fun with twins - I know what you are thinking, but no. I mean fun doing a photoshoot with twins and the challenge to ensure that photographs featuring them together, that they get equal "Billing". This 'fairness' comes from being the youngest (and introverted) child with older (and 'extroverted' / 'alpha male' type) older brothers and feeling like...

Here's to a happy and successful 2017

January 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Now that we have 2016 well and truly behind us, here's to a happy and successful 2017 to you all from Chris Fieldhouse Photography. I do love Christmas Trees, and in Austin I love to see the "Feral" Christmas Trees appear as people go out and decorate the trees along the highways, TX-360 north being a traditional favourite. I do not know when or h...

The Bifrost Bridge over Alaska

December 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
This past summer we were fortunate enough to go on, what are now being called "Boutique Cruise" thru the inside passage of Alaska. We want to say first off, this was one of (if not THE) best vacation we had ever taken. It was with the company and basically if you are ever considering taking a cruise in Alaska, don't g...
