(Turn and face the strain)
Don't want to be a richer man.....

And it’s probably a good thing too because I doubt its ever going to happen!

The past nine months (Except it was really the first half of that [Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec and a piece of Jan]) have been a time of great upheaval in my life. Not emotionally (thank God!)  I don’t think I could have stood heaving up my emotions!

I’d been waiting to do this journal on the first day of Spring (September in the right-side-up hemisphere).  Except I was told, about that time, that my Mother had decided to move to Hamilton.  Frailer than any of us would like; I’d become used to dropping in frequently to keep her spirits up and stay abreast of her situation.  Hamilton is a two-hour bus ride away.

Second hit came midway through September when my landlords told me that they had to sell the apartment I was living in.  I couldn’t blame them: They’d held on as long as they could because they’re my best friends.  But finances....

 Long story short: By the last week of November (unable to find a suitable replacement to the apartment I’d just vacated) I was living in my best friends’ spare room and everything I owned was in storage.

A time of displacement: It should have been very stressful....

....Work, more shoots than I could shake a stick at, support from family and friends, prep for Christmas and flat hunting, left me too busy to develop any of the negative side-effects I would have expected.

(Except, of course, for my drop to lurker status on DA...! Missing my 8th anniversary in the process.)


I’d found a new flat by the end of the first week in December, finished my second move in the first week of January.  Helped with my mum’s move (at both ends of the line) mid-January.

And now I’m (still) wading through the post-processing for more shoots than I can be bothered counting.


It’s, actually, been an excellent few months!


Now to catch up with the previews from my shoots in the last year (good grief!):

 180513 Amber Jordana and Jacinda (preview) by marshrr

 My second shoot with Amber and Jordana, with a guest appearance by Jacinda.

 180513 Charlotte(preview) by marshrr

 My fourth (?) shoot with the stunning Charlotte.

 150613 MJ (preview) by marshrr

 A sweet surprise was the return of another of my past and, arguably, one of my all-time favourite models.  (With a vengeance!)

MJ, after I found she had returned from Australia, sat for her third shoot with me in June.  We’ve just completed our eighth!  So you can expect to see a whole lot more of this amazing lady in my future posts!

 120713 Tania (preview) by marshrr

 Tania, a stunning and versatile, actress and model.


 140913 Sara (preview) by marshrr

 My sixth shoot with the amazing Sara.

 271013 MJ (preview) by marshrr

 Like I said: Back with a vengeance!
My fourth shoot with the seriously amazing MJ.

 131113 Mayson (preview) by marshrr

 Another return (after a very brief drop from modelling): Mayson decided to sit for me again in November, and again a month later, and a month after that....  Lol!  No complaints here!

 091213 Mayson (preview) by marshrr

 My fourth (or  third depending on how I decide I'm keeping score) shoot with the stunning Mayson.

 111213 Sade (preview) by marshrr

 My sixth shoot with the seriously cool Sade'


181213 MJ (preview) by marshrr

 My fifth shoot with MJ.

 221213 Eri Ota (preview) by marshrr

The delightful Miss Ota.


070114 MJ (preview) by marshrr

 My sixth shoot with MJ.

 220114 Clarette (preview) by marshrr

 A, way too short, shoot with the lovely Clarette


230114 MJ JD and DJ (preview) by marshrr

 My seventh shoot with MJ with a couple of friends this time.

My first shoot with the delightful DJ

And the stunning JD

 280114 Mayson (preview) by marshrr

 My fifth shoot (I finally decided how I was going to keep count!) with the Stunning Mayson.


030214 MJ (preview) by marshrr

 My eighth shoot with MJ

 040214 DJ (preview) by marshrr

 My second shoot with the amazing DJ


040214 DJ + Quintin (preview) by marshrr

 This is still my second shoot with the amazing DJ but we did some shots with her boyfriend and I ended up with so many good images on the day that, rather than cut it down, I was able to split it to cover both aspects of the shoot.  And ‘why not?’ I say.

 130214 Prerna (preview) by marshrr

 The delightful Prerna.


230214 Yasemin (preview) by marshrr

 A lady I've wanted to shoot for a very long time!
The exotic Yasemin.


020314 SLR (preview) by marshrr

 The vivacious SLR

I’m hoping to organise another shoot (when our schedules eventually mesh) later this year.

 190314 Lydia (preview) by marshrr

 The seriously talented Lydia.
An up and coming Hip-hop and R&B artist.


020414 Alyce (preview) by marshrr

 My first shoot with the stunning Alyce

 260414 Natalie (preview) by marshrr

 The sweet, charming and stunning Natalie.
An absolute delight.

 270414 Lydia 24-7 (preview) by marshrr

 My second shoot with Lydia was a major departure from my usual style of shoot.
A behind the scenes look at the making of her first video. It also put my camera (for, perhaps, the first time) seriously through its paces.  I've got to say it proved itself up to the task beautifully!

 170414 Cherie-Nicole (preview) by marshrr

 My second (long over-due) shoot with the stunning Cherie!

 180514 Alyce (preview) by marshrr

 My second shoot with the stunning Alyce

 And that brings me (almost) up to date.

There are still a few shoots being post-processed from the last month or two.  But waiting for them to get done is what got me this backlog in the first place. So they’ll just have to wait for my next update.

My favourites from the same period:

I’ve been a lot less active (even as a lurker) in that time....
