Due to circumstances beyond our control we are having to rationalise Red Zebra Photography in the next few months. Part of this process is slimming down our web site and as a result our Stock Library will be removed.
We realise that this is a popular feature but there will be the opportunity to buy digital download files from the Stock Library in a week or so at a much reduced price for you to keep for posterity.
STOCK IMAGE SALE only £9.99 (usually £39.99) for an instant download digital file at 3,200 px and 300 dpi!

So 2016 is here and along with it a New Year’s resolution to blog more often. The paradox is that if I don’t blog people won’t be able to read it and follow what Red Zebra is up to. If I spend quite a bit of time blogging and no one reads it?
2015 ended with three new bits of photography news. We had an outdoor event in December with Colonel Overton’s Regiment of Foote at Newark in the Castle grounds and the English Civil War Centre. A little bit of a grey day but excellent musket shots and time to create some artistic as well as reportage images.
The previous month had seen us at Donna Nook in Lincolnshire at the Seal Sanctuary where at 8am we were spoilt for choice with images of seals and their pups. It was also an opportunity to use the new Canon EOS 7D mkII and the Canon EF 100 ~ 400 mkII lens combination which replaced the older 40D and the “trombone” 100 ~ 400 lens which had some dust issues due to its manner of its focal range and zooming.
Later in the day we went to Skegness which ticked a destination off of Gerald’s Bucket List (along with Cuba earlier in 2015). Skegness provided excellent conceptual imaging taking the everyday and making it a little more exciting or ambiguous.
Finally another on the Bucket List was a local disused church and graveyard. Gothic style images with colour tones or in great monochrome.
So one positive move on the 2016 resolutions, next onto Instagram to publish more images. Next blog will feature the fashion work on the 2015 winter, studio work featuring some fabulous models. Please let me know if you have read this and any positive comments are always welcome. Gerald
You can see the Seals and Skegness images as albums and the Gothic style images as “Image of the Day” on www.redzebraphoto.co.uk

At Red Zebra we are always looking to enhance our customer experience and give more value for money. For 2014 there will be the offer of free packing and postage on all prints over £12 ordered within two weeks of an event, this means saving at least £1.99 on a basic order of 6 by 4 inch prints.
The other good news is that despite the rising costs of various items we have managed to keep our 2012 prices for the start of the 2014 season. As photographers we use Loxley Colour a professional Print Lab based in Glasgow to provide our customers with excellent, high quality prints on Fuji Professional Paper. All prints are hand checked before dispatch.

End of the Easter Egg trail at Mr Straw’s House.
Spent a fascinating Saturday morning with Eric the egg, photographing the Easter Egg Trail at Mr Straw’s House. Eric followed the trail and modelled in a series of scenarios in the house. Mr Straw’s House is a National Trust property which shows life in the 20th Century. The house was lived in by the Straw family of Worksop and has lots of original features and artefacts. As it is Easter there is an Easter Egg Trail around the house and gardens with chicks to find and a quiz with Easter Eggs as prizes.
Eric liked modelling and is considering apply for an eggquity card and moving into acting. He would like to thank the supporting eggs and the chicks taking part in the Easter Egg Trail at Mr Straw’s House. He feels, however, that he does not wish to pursue a career as a stunt egg as he experienced a panic attack while on the kitchen cooker.

Two recent weekends have seen Red Zebra working with the National Trust in the Walled Kitchen garden at the National trust property of Clumber Park in north Nottinghamshire. The orchard has been dressed with Tree Bombing Knitting (Yarn Bombed) with lots of colourful hand-made pieces of knitting sewn around the trunks and branches of the trees.
In addition hand knitted apples have been hung from the branches to create an amazing effect, especially as a knitted frog, vole, mice and a snake have been added. A wonderful Tree Bombed effect!
This also provided the opportunity for Red Zebra to do some time lapse imaging. The camera is static and the images taken at regular intervals and put together as a video with the colourful Tree Bombing and the white clouds scudding across the deep blue sky.
WKG Tree Bombing 1402c
The 2nd of March saw the wassailing at the WKG. Wassailing does not have to be at Christmas and in this case was to assist the fertility of the apple trees in the orchard at Clumber Park for the coming season. Thoughts were written onto luggage labels and attached to the trees, the songs sung, music played and re-cycled organic bread thrown at the trees to assure a good harvest later in the year. The wassailing and tree bombing made a spectacular sight.
More Red Zebra images can be seen on Clumber Park’s facebook page.

Red Zebra has been photographing historical re-enactment and living history for over seven years now and accumulated an excellent archive of stock images relating to World War One from various events and venues.
