Scarves and Wraps made from Japanese Silk – Handmade Products – Photography in Teddington

Handmade products, photographed for our neighbour Valerie Timmis who makes beautiful scarves and wraps. We spent an afternoon in my Teddington studio photographing for her website. Val asked another neighbour, Graham to model. Such fun!

Val’s business is called Kumadori, have a look at the website. Her gorgeous scarves and wraps were a joy to photograph. They are unique, made from the silk of vintage kimonos which, Val says “combines Japanese aesthetic, luscious quality silks with fine, innovative decoration.”

A few doors up from me – and a few doors down from Val is the home of Charlotte Duff, who created the Kumadori website.

Practice Photography and Take Better Photos

practicing photography skills with Handmade WorkshopsPractice photography with me and Handmade Workshops at The Railway in Teddington.

We’re aiming to get more people taking better pictures, and it’s amazing how much you can learn in 3 hours. It’s intended for enthusiastic mobile phone camera users who want to move on to using a real camera. We cover the basics of what looks good in a picture, and how to get the camera to give us the picture we want! This is our ‘syllabus‘.

Best of all – we get cake! Plus tea or coffee and some time in lovely Bushy Park practicing photography.
