This was the fourth year I have photographed this event and it was really lovely to be back to capture the event again this year. The awards celebrate the talent, skill and inspiration of garden media professionals across the industry, and are open to everyone who generates or publishes garden-related material.

I was there capturing the day for those who were there and to publicise these and future awards. It was a fantastic day with a drinks reception, product demonstrations from the sponsors, delicious three-course lunch and much celebration at the awards ceremony itself, hosted by the fantastic Gyles Brandreth who had everyone roaring with laughter with his tales in the stunning surroundings of the Savoy.

Below are a few photographs from the day. To see the complete gallery on my website visit: www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/gmgawards17

Amass Zine - a foldy photo zine http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/10/amass-zine---a-foldy-photo-zine I've written before about my weird photo collections and I've been wanting to make a little zine for ages, so when Moo had a sale recently I decided to do something about it. I've made a 'foldy' zine before to give to people I was meeting at portfolio reviews, so I thought this might be a good approach for this. 

A browse of synonyms and a look in a dictionary later and I decided to call the zine series 'amass': to accumulate or collect.

amass zine 01 - obsoleteamass zine 01 - obsoleteProduct shot of amass zine 01 - obsolete, by Jayne Lloyd

Issue one is titled 'obsolete': no longer used; out of date, and focuses on my collection of images of empty notice/advertising boards, which I've mentioned before: Why I like abandoned noticeboards.

amass zine 01 - obsoleteamass zine 01 - obsoleteProduct shot of amass zine 01 - obsolete, by Jayne Lloyd

It's a 'foldy' zine, made from a sheet of A4 folded and cut to make a 6-page A7 booklet with an A4 poster on the reverse - three different image variations. The bright white paper is quite thick (200gsm) and I folded it by hand so it doesn't line up totally perfectly, but that's part of the charm!

If you know me in the 'real world' I'll have a few on me if you'd like a look, but if you'd like to buy one online they are available to buy on Etsy for £1.50 + postage (65p within UK, £1.17 international).

I'll be sporadicly making new ones with different collections so check back to see what I'm up to, and I'd love to know your thoughts!

Architectural Jewellery PV, Contemporary Applied Arts, London - event photography http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/9/architectural-jewellery-pv-contemporary-applied-arts-london---event-photography Last week I had a lovely evening photographing a 'Meet the Makers' evening event at Contemporary Applied Arts in Bankside, London, as part of their Architectural Jewellery exhibition for the Bankside Design District for the London Design Festival

 

Architectural Jewellery was a fabulous showcase of bold constructed, modernist and architecturally-inspired jewellery by CAA's maker members. Although the show itself has sadly now come to an end, many of the pieces are still able to be seen at CAA, where their constantly changing shop is always full of fantastic pieces by their 350 members, who represent the top talent in the UK today working across the disciplines of ceramics, glass, textiles, jewellery, metal and wood, creating unique hand made functional and non-functional objects.

 

'Meet the Makers' events are a fantastic opportunity to meet the people behind the designs and to find out more about their creative process. Here are a few photos from the evening - you can see the full gallery here, and please do visit CAA's website to learn more about them.

Good Funeral Awards 2017 at Porchester Hall, London - Event Photography http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/9/good-funeral-awards-2017-at-porchester-hall-london---event-photography Last week I had the privilege of photographing the Good Funeral Awards 2017 at Porchester Hall in Bayswater, London. The awards celebrate the hard work and dedication of the people in the funeral industry who do outstanding work for the bereaved and aims to be a bridge between the general public and the much misunderstood funeral industry. 

It was a fantastic day and I met some really wonderful people, who care very deeply about the incredibly important work that they do.

There was the most amazing chocolate cake sculpted by Conjurer's Kitchen, entertainment from the wonderful Allegra Shock and Alison Jiear, and the excellent host for the day was author Guy Browning.

Here are a few of my photos from the day - you can see more at the full gallery here, and please do visit the Good Funeral Awards website to learn more about the awards themselves.

Abandoned noticeboards - an Instagram collection http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/7/abandoned-noticeboards---an-instagram-collection jayne_170710_2823jayne_170710_2823

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I have slightly bizarre little collections of things I notice while I'm out and about. Since University the recurring theme in my personal work has been documenting the traces that people leave behind and I like thinking about the stories behind them - why do I keep finding puzzle pieces on pavements? Why do people decide to wipe dirt from their hands on to a wall, where it will stay for pretty much ever?

jayne_170711_2838jayne_170711_2838   jayne_170711_2839jayne_170711_2839

My main collection at the moment, though is empty noticeboards/advertising boards. My favourites are those that appear to have been abandoned for quite some time, but when I'm just walking past somewhere it's not always easy to tell if they've been given up or are just in-between notices. 

jayne_170710_2815jayne_170710_2815

I think it's fair to assume this is more than just 'in-between' notices.

Were their locations once hubs of activities but aren't so much anymore? Are physical notices needed less now that people have digital advertising methods?

jayne_170710_2813jayne_170710_2813

Let's not over-think it too much though - I just like them! Frames are pleasing to photograph. I should probably add that I don't go hunting for them either - these are things I see when I'm going about my day and photograph on my phone. Yes, I'll cross a road or nip round a corner if I spot one, but I'm not trawling the streets or making special trips to find them.

These are probably the photos that started the collection:

jayne_170710_2825jayne_170710_2825   jayne_170710_2824jayne_170710_2824

All those staples and bits of tape - I can't help but wonder what they used to hold, who read them and what it lead them to!

 

So for the Shutter Hub OPEN this year I decided to enter a couple from the series, and was delighted that the noticeboard from Trinity Street, Colchester was selected for inclusion. The show runs from 2-30 July at The Dark Room, Ocean Terminal in Edinburgh as part of Retina Scottish International Photography Festival, but if you can't make it to Edinburgh you can see all the photos from the show here and vote for your favourite.

What are your thoughts? Do you have any collections/themes you keep returning to? I'd love to hear about them.

Wrabness Day Trip Photo Zine http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/6/wrabness-daytrip-photo-zine Recently I found myself with a very quiet Sunday morning - on the Saturday evening I though it would be nice to do something with it, so I had a look for somewhere not too far away that I hadn't visited before. I found this 'Woodland and River Ramble', packed my camera and got a relatively early train to Wrabness.

WrabnessWrabnessWoodland and River Stroll and Stour Wood Stroll

I decided that I'd just photograph whatever caught my eye on the walk, do an edit and make a little book of the photos. I'm really interested in zines and thought this might be a good little project to get me actually making something. 

WrabnessWrabnessWoodland and River Stroll and Stour Wood Stroll

The walk was really lovely, as is the village. It was a warm day but not too hot, and the walk had a lovely mix of a slightly coastal feel, fields and woodlands - about two and a half hours all together, with all my stopping for photos.

WrabnessWrabnessWoodland and River Stroll and Stour Wood Stroll

I stuck with a 50mm lens and I decided I wouldn't crop beyond straightening the odd shot (I'm very fussy about that). I wanted to be a bit constrained to make me think about things more.

WrabnessWrabnessWoodland and River Stroll and Stour Wood Stroll

There is a really great community shop next to the station with an excellent range of products and I was very grateful for the cool drink and Tunnock's Teacake I treated myself to while waiting for my train back to Colchester.

JayneLloyd_DocumentaryPhotography_Wrabness_2094JayneLloyd_DocumentaryPhotography_Wrabness_2094

There's almost definitely a better way to do this but it worked for me

When I got back I edited the images down. I decided to keep them in the order I shot them and was really interested to see how some of the pairs echoed each other - the triangle of a rope swing and the triangle of a path through the woods, red and white tape in a field, red and white flower by the hedge. 

 

 

 

In the next couple of days I spent a bit of time making a very small book - A7, I suppose. The whole project probably took about a day, altogether. It's just printed on my printer, cut and stitched by me, so it's pretty rough round the edges and doesn't line up properly at the ends, but I'm pretty pleased with it on the whole and it's definitely encouraged me to do more mini-projects and make more zines/photobooks.

Notes on May http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/6/notes-on-may Argh! How has May been and gone already?! Here are some highlights:

Promotional photography

Last month I mentioned that Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) launched a new special exhibition in April - Bloomin' Jewels: The blossoming of the floral in contemporary jewellery, guest curated by Corinne Julius. I took some installation shots to show it all set up:

I photographed the Business Woman's Network's May meeting with speaker Mark Pettit, who spoke about how to 'power up productivity and profitability'. As always it was very informative and full of great opportunities. I'm trying to use my time better using Mark's tips!

I was commissioned by The English Garden Magazine to photograph the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. You can read my blog about this and see their updates on the show here.

Exhibitions, inspirations, general ramblings etc.

I took a much needed inspiration day and went to visit 'Legacy: Photographs by Vanessa Bell and Patti Smith' at Dulwich Picture Gallery, which was lovely. I really enjoyed both 'Just Kids' and 'M Train' by Patti Smith so it was wonderful to see these photographs in person. 

Then I popped along to The Photographers Gallery to see the Deutsche Böerse Photography Foundation Prize. Dana Lixenberg was a well-deserved winner - her project 'Imperial Courts' was incredible, but I also found Sophie Calle's 'My All' hugely moving. 

 

That evening was the opening of Accumulate's 'Made by Us' exhibition at the Guardian, which was fantastic! It was wonderful to see all the hard work everyone had put in come together in such a brilliant exhibition. Shutter Hub are now running an appeal to ensure that the participants can continue their photography - #CAMERAAMNESTY. If you have an old camera sitting gathering dust please do consider donating it to this fantastic cause!

 

I collected my prints from my recent holidays - instant cameras from Reykjavic and Italy, and a roll from a Kodak Beirette that I picked up at the Farleigh Hospice charity shop in Moulsham Street, Chelmsford (they regularly have old camera events). I particularly liked this shot from Reykjavic, and the one below is from the Beirette. I hadn't quite sussed out how to rewind the film, which is why there's a light leak, but I quite like it.

 

 

I managed to get to the seaside again for a friend's birthday and had a great weekend of sea air, hearty meals and laughter round the campfire.

We also went to Slam Dunk Festival, which was brilliant - an incredible line-up with some our favourites including Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, Don Broco and Enter Shikari.

 

I wondered if people are interested in other things I enjoy, like music and TV shows? I get a lot of inspiration from them and I love when people tell me about what they're listening to/watching, but not sure if mine are that interesting, particularly as I'm terrible for not finding new bands, just being stuck in the past. I'll give it a go, and you can tell me if you'd rather I didn't! 

In my headphones: I've been re-discovering Björk (definitely influenced by travelling to Iceland), I really liked the new At The Drive In album In-ter a-li-a too, and my friends Rad Pitt launched their album Pink which is pretty awesome. Of course I was listening to the Slam Dunk bands quite a bit in the lead-up to that too, so I've had quite a lot of Ska in my ears.

On my TV: Netflix - the brilliant Master of None was back with an excellent second series, series 3 of Better Call Saul (visually gorgeous as well as everything else), Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12(!) and Designated Survivor was back too. Big Little Lies was excellent, and we've also been really enjoying The Good Fight - one of few shows to be talking about America now, in my opinion.

That should do for now, but you can join me on Twitter or Instagram if you'd like to see snippets of my view of the world - there are quite a few shadows at the moment. I'm also trying to share a few Instagram Stories to show what I'm up to on a day-to-day basis. I've also got a newish newsletter you can sign up for below - I'm trying to share useful tips and things in that so let me know if there's anything you'd like me to look at.

 

Have a great June!

RHS Chelsea Flower Show for The English Garden magazine http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/5/editorial-photography---rhs-chelsea-flower-show-for-the-english-garden-magazine Earlier this week I worked with The English Garden magazine to photograph the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I do have a background in garden photography, as my first job in the photography industry was at Garden World Images, but this was the first time I had been to Chelsea!

It was a very busy press day but I really enjoyed capturing all the different gardens, visitors and unusual plants. There were some really stunning designs, gorgeous colour combinations and plenty of inspiration for keen gardeners (I wish I were better at it myself!)

Here are some of my photographs from the day, but check out The English Garden's blog for the full story and all the latest news from Chelsea.

Home/Work Project - Teigh-Anne's Workspace http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/5/home/work-project---teigh-annes-workspace Today's blog features Teigh-Anne's workspace as part of my Home/Work project. I visited Teigh-Anne at her wonderfully colourful home to photograph her workspace.

What type of business do you run?
I’m currently creating a couple of books at the moment so I’m not sure that falls under the category of a business. I’m an artist. I do run a non-profit community organisation though – which focuses on laughter and happiness.

When did you start working from home? 
I used to work from home in my previous role as PR and communications Lead for Involving Essex until the project lost funding and I was made redundant in 2009. This job had needed to be flexible and they had allowed me to work from home because of family/carer commitments looking after my son. He has special needs so when I was made redundant I set up my own organisation continuing some of what I’d been doing previously around mental health. 
Creativity is very important to me and so I’ve been developing that side of my life and an opportunity came up to focus a bit more on this area.

What made you decide to work from home rather than in premises off site?
I had a studio space at Hylands House for a short time but it really didn’t suit me at all. Mostly it’s about time, and being able to work flexibly. I couldn’t really afford the rent – plus the travel there and the commitment to covering it when it was open to the public was impractical for me with my son and meant less time spent on actual creating. I decided the best solution would be to invest my redundancy money in building a studio at home. I needed resources to be able to create and little by little, one step at a time I started to build these – so when I left Hylands I needed an alternative. I used the kitchen until I finally had the log cabin built which was a much more cost effective solution. 

What do you like best about working from home?
The flexibility and that I can work it around my son. I am able to work an hour at a time, and sometimes late after my son has gone to bed so I can focus.  I need to be in the right environment to thrive and this allows me to do that.

Are there any difficulties in working from home?
It can get lonely – when I worked in an office I enjoyed mostly making people laugh. I have joined some networking groups and this enables me to get out of the house and learn other aspects of business that I’ll need along the road and running laughter workshops helps to add in that people contact with much needed connection and positivity.  

What is your favourite feature of your workspace?
When I was planning what the ideal space would be for me I really wanted to have various areas. I wanted somewhere to sculpt, have numerous paintings being created simultaneously and somewhere to draw. I also wanted to be able to be messy without worry. It’s just all about flexibility really and being able to create something that puts all of my training and experience together into a resource that will help others. 

Teigh-Anne's websites are being updated but you will soon be able to find out more at www.tashave.co.uk and www.giggletogether.co.uk

Home/Work is my current project documenting people who work from home. 'Home' is a recurring theme in my work - I am fascinated by our interactions with objects and spaces, particularly our homes, and with the number of home workers on the increase I thought this would be fascinating to investigate. 

According to the UK Office for National Statistics, "There were 4.2 million home workers in January-March 2014, or 13.9% of those in work. This was the highest rate of home working since comparable records began in 1998." Visit www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/lmac/characteristics-of-home-workers/2014/sty-home-workers.html for further information on these statistics.

I am hoping to photograph the workspaces of lots of different people, working in a wide range of industries, but all of whom work from their home or within the grounds of their home. I am interested in how people create these workspaces and how the lines between home and work are defined or blurred. If you work from home and are interested in participating in the project please get in touch!

Notes on April http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/5/notes-on-april April was a pretty excellent month - I was travelling for half of it! I did do some work too (and I seemed to adopt a '4 camera minimum' whilst on my travels, which is probably a bit odd), but here are some highlights:

Promotional photography

Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) launched a new special exhibition in April - Bloomin' Jewels: The blossoming of the floral in contemporary jewellery, guest curated by Corinne Julius. It was wonderful to photograph some of the work featured in the exhibition, and to capture the opening night too. There are some really stunning pieces on display so highly recommend a visit - if you haven't been before it's just by Tate Modern.

I photographed the Business Woman's Network's April meeting with speaker Keith Grinsted, who spoke about how to get the most from LinkedIn. It was very informative and full of great opportunities.

Digital imaging consultancy

I had another session helping a client digitise slides for lectures. She is now all set up for her upcoming lectures with PowerPoints and slide lists, and I had another dose of inspiration!

Shutter Hub

Great news for Shutter Hub as we were awarded the the UK Blog Award's 'Best Photography Blog'

I joined the Shutter Hub team on a trip to Hunstanton where we had some time to concentrate of work and planning. We squeezed in a bit of photography and some exploring too of course. Lots of exciting things on the way - check out shutterhub.org.uk to see what we're up to and join in on the current calls for entries for the OPEN and Artificial Things!

Travel

This month Tim and I had a sort-of belated honeymoon and went to Venice, Rome and Reykjavik (we came home in between to pack for the totally different climate!). We had an amazing time and saw some awesome things. I will do proper posts about these soon (I have a LOT of photos to process!), but here are a few shots in the meantime!

(Full disclosure - it didn't look this bright to the naked eye - it was incredible, but a lot more subtle. The long exposure needed to capture it made it a lot clearer on camera)

Exhibitions, general ramblings etc.

While we were in Reykjavik we went to the National Museum of Iceland, which was excellent and filled with lots of displays all about the history of Iceland, but there were also two photographic exhibitions which I really enjoyed.

Steinholt by Christopher Taylor explored memories connected with Steinholt (the house Taylor's wife's grandparents built in 1929) in rich, striking black-and-white images. I think it particularly appealed to me having photographed the house my own grandad designed.

JayneLloyd_TravelPhotography_Reykjavic_170415_0443JayneLloyd_TravelPhotography_Reykjavic_170415_0443

Grímsey by Cole Barash captured the people, landscapes and details of the island of Grímsey in rich colour and gave a wonderful insight into the community. I particularly liked the details of everyday life as that's so often what I'm drawn to myself.

Tim and I also went to see the BP Portrait Award 2016 which is on display at Firstsite in Colchester at the moment. We enjoyed the variety of work but my favourites were Falk by David von Bassewitz and Stanley on a Painter's Rag by Keith Robinson:

The journal-of-sorts has been on a bit of a hiatus as I fell so behind while I was away. I'm catching up/starting up again from this weekend though so check back next time... 

...While we're on checking back, I said last month to check back to see if I acted on my note to self to EXPERIMENT MORE - I think I've started off fairly well but there's a way to go. I mixed things up with photographs on holiday and I'm planning on doing something a bit different for the Shutter Hub exhibitions.

That should do for now, but you can join me on Twitter or Instagram if you'd like to see snippets of my view of the world - there's quite a bit of seaside at the moment. I'm also trying to share a few Instagram Stories.

Notes on March http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/4/notes-on-march Well it's been lovely seeing spring really starting to break through this month! March was another month filled with a mix of things, so here are a few highlights:

Website and newsletter

I've had a bit of a re-jig of the website: updated my portfolio, changed how things are organised etc. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on this and if there's anything you'd like to see more/less of. 

I also set up my new monthly newsletter. I am aiming to share some useful information as well as letting people know what I'm up to, so I hope you might like to sign up, and again if you have any feedback on what you like/aren't so keen on it would be great to hear it!

 

Promotional photography

I photographed one of the Chelmsford Breakfast Business Club's meetings for our promotional material. CBBC is a networking group I've been a member of for a while - a great group of people from a range of different industries. If you're interested in coming along you can find out more on the website: www.chelmsfordnetworking.co.uk

It was the Business Woman's Network's 8th birthday this month so there was a very busy meeting with speaker Annabel Kaye from KoffeeKlatch, which I photographed for them. There was also cake, which was delicious!

I had a haircut so it seemed like a good time to take a more recent self portrait:

I continued my work helping a client digitise slides for lectures. I came away inspired yet again and determined to study art history a bit more. I'll let you know how that goes... I have an idea...

Shutter Hub

It was great to get fully involved in work with Shutter Hub this month. I visited the University of Northampton for a day of portfolio reviews with the second year students. It was a really interesting day seeing a wide range of work and I hope that I was able to provide useful advice for refining their selections. 

jayne_170320_9652jayne_170320_9652

 

Then later that week the Shutter Hub team all visited the Photographers' Gallery working with Accumul8 to help with portfolio reviews. Accumul8 is a social enterprise project that helps young, homeless people explore their creativity through a range of creative workshops, including photography, film making, creative writing and illustration, and it was great to be involved in helping the participants select which images to put into their upcoming exhibition at The Guardian in Kings Cross, and to enter for the opportunity to be awarded one of three scholarships to pay for opportunity to study on the one year creative and digital media course at Ravensbourne. Find out about the exhibition here: http://accumulate.org.uk/the-accumulate-exhibition/ and check out shutterhub.org.uk to see more of what we're up to - lots of exciting things to come!

Project work

I did a shoot for the Home/Work project with an artist I have known for a few years. Another very inspiring morning and what an incredible workspace! Really looking forward to sharing that on the blog soon.

The journal-of-sorts is continuing, though all the things I've stuck in mean it's become massive already and there's no way it's going to hold together for the whole year!

I finally managed to get to Tate Modern to see The Radical Eye and Wolfgang Tillmans 2017. I was nearby for a client meeting so thought I'd make good use of the rest of Saturday and see them both. I must get a National Art Pass, but as I hadn't at the time I took advantage of the combined ticket with free drink (I thought I'd add cake to really make it an extra big treat) - what a lovely idea! 

Wine and cake at Tate ModernWine and cake at Tate ModernWine and cake at Tate Modern

 

The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from the Sir Elton John Collection is a great opportunity to see photographs from the first half of the twentieth century in Sir Elton John's impressive collection. Seeing prints the of such iconic images as Man Ray's Glass Tears and Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother is wonderful, and the way the work was grouped flowed really well. I particularly liked Irving Penn's Corner Portraits, and some of the collage pieces, and the video showing Sir Elton John in his apartment where the photographs are displayed was really lovely - it's great to see the joy that they bring him, and that they are looked at every day with real attention.

It's on until 21 May so visit if you can!

 

Wolfgang Tillmans 2017 was also excellent, and I enjoyed the way the work was presented, 'specially configured by Tillmans as a personal response to the present moment' - we had to look up, down, flick through books. Prints were many different sizes and on a variety of papers. Instead of having captions on the walls, each visitor was given a booklet, which I really enjoyed. Instead of doing the polite shuffling around the text we normally have to do you could read at your own pace. To be honest I looked a bit at the time but read it properly on the train home, when I could think a little more about it. 

This runs until 11 June so do go see it!

In my notebook I wrote EXPERIMENT MORE! In big bold letters - both exhibitions made me feel this way. Check back next month to see if I acted on it.

I think that will do for now, but I am posting more regularly now, and you can join me on Twitter or Instagram if you'd like to see snippets of my view of the world - I'm still a bit obsessed with noticeboards that are no longer in use and walls being used as places people wipe their hands...

Home/Work Project - Anne's Workspace http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/3/home/work-project---annes-workspace Today's blog features Anne's workspace as part of my Home/Work project. I visited Anne at her lovely home earlier this month to photograph her workspace (and chat about photography!).

What type of business do you run?
Photography - specialising in weddings and portraits but also undertaking some corporate work.

When did you start working from home? 
Autumn 2015

What made you decide to work from home rather than in premises off site?
I’m not really in a position to rent a studio space at the moment, and since most of my photoshoots take place outdoors or in clients’ home, it’s not a problem really.  However, wouldn’t it be amazing to have a studio?!

What do you like best about working from home?
Being able to work around personal commitments and interests is great, and in the summer, I tend to take breaks away from the laptop with a spot of gardening!

Are there any difficulties in working from home?
Not really.

What is your favourite feature of your workspace?
My big table!  I love to be organised, so I tend to lay out my work so that I can see it all in front of me.  I’ve also just had my workspace painted - it’s been transformed from magnolia to a blue/grey colour.  Very relaxing to the eye.

Home/Work is my current project documenting people who work from home. 'Home' is a recurring theme in my work - I am fascinated by our interactions with objects and spaces, particularly our homes, and with the number of home workers on the increase I thought this would be fascinating to investigate. 

According to the UK Office for National Statistics, "There were 4.2 million home workers in January-March 2014, or 13.9% of those in work. This was the highest rate of home working since comparable records began in 1998." Visit www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/lmac/characteristics-of-home-workers/2014/sty-home-workers.html for further information on these statistics.

I am hoping to photograph the workspaces of lots of different people, working in a wide range of industries, but all of whom work from their home or within the grounds of their home. I am interested in how people create these workspaces and how the lines between home and work are defined or blurred. If you work from home and are interested in participating in the project please get in touch!

Notes on the year so far... http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/3/notes-on-the-year-so-far Well it's March already so I thought it would be good to let you know what I've been up to recently - I do quite a mix of work so I think it's probably helpful to talk more about it!

January and February were a very busy couple of months, with quite a range of projects, so here is a little about some of them:

 

Promotional photography

I shot a new line of jewellery for my regular client Carrie Elizabeth's Not on the High Street store - initial necklaces in silver, gold and rose gold. They are really lovely and it's well worth checking out their gorgeous products! You can also buy directly at carrieelizabeth.co.uk and ASOS.

Jewellery by Carrie ElizabethJewellery by Carrie ElizabethJewellery by Carrie Elizabeth I had a few events to photograph too - a conference for 300 people near St Paul's Cathedral which was great, and the Business Woman's Network's January and February events at their new venue, Wivenhoe House Hotel, which is really beautiful.

I also worked with a wonderful company I have known for a while, The Bra Consultancy. They do fantastic work offering personalised bra fittings, particularly for women looking for specialist bras following surgery. We had a session taking promotional photographs demonstrating the services they offer, and once they have been released I will post a blog about the shoot.

 

Digital imaging consultancy

It has been a busy couple of months for consultancy/digital imaging work - I was back helping a client whose slides I have been digitising for lectures. It's a job I have really enjoyed as it gives me the chance to look at images of art and design that I hadn't come across before - it's always very inspiring! 

In a similar vein, I was really pleased to go back to the Geffrye Museum to work in the picture library where I worked before I went freelance in 2013, checking images and adding them to their picture library system. It was great to see familiar faces and see how things had changed. I really enjoyed checking out their Teenage Bedrooms exhibition too!

Project work

I managed to squeeze in a couple of shoots for my ongoing project Home/Work too - I revisited Jo to see her new workspace in her garden, and also photographed photographer Anne's workspace, which will be on the blog very soon.

Shutter Hub

I'm excited to say that I'm now a Project Manager for Shutter Hub, an awesome photography organisation doing lots of great things! I'll be getting a lot more involved over the coming months so will share updates when I can. Check out shutterhub.org.uk to see what we're up to!

 

Exhibitions, general ramblings etc.

In more general news, I've been making an attempt at keeping a sort-of journal this year. I'm terrible at journals - I just can't keep up with them. So this time I'm trying just sticking photos from each day in, adding words when I feel like it, and other random things. So far it's working quite well. I'm not totally giving up when I miss a day, and I've been enjoying taking time out to do a bit of collaging each week!

jayne_170122_8102jayne_170122_8102 I haven't been great at visiting exhibitions this month as it's been so busy, but I did catch Gee Vaucher: Introspective at Firstsite, which was excellent. I think most people are familiar with Vaucher's 'Oh America' image which has been used extensively in the media recently, but the wide range of her work is quite staggering. The exhibition has finished now but it's well worth checking out her work if you can.

 

I think that will do for now, but I'll be posting more regularly now, and you can join me on Twitter or Instagram if you'd like to see snippets of my view of the world - current interests include noticeboards that are now longer in use, walls being used as places to wipe your hands, and our adventures in decorating...

Home/Work Project - Jo's Oil Shack http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2017/2/home/work-project---jos-oil-shack Today's Home/Work blog is a bit different as I am revisiting Jo, who has a new workspace in her garden - the Oil Shack. Jo runs a holistic therapy business from home called Oils By Jo, for which she uses DoTERRA essential oils. You may remember I featured Jo's office and treatment room in her lovely light and calming home in June last year, so it was great to see how her setup had changed. You can see her previous workspace here: www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2016/7/home/work-project---jos-home-office-and-treatment-room.

Home/WorkHome/WorkPart of the Home/Work project by Jayne Lloyd, documenting people who work from home.

I asked Jo a few follow-up questions to find out a bit more about her new workspace:

What made you decide to build a new workspace at your home, rather than continuing with your existing setup, or taking on space away from home?
The reason I wanted my outdoor space was because I was having many clients coming to me with huge health issues and they all seem to get very emotional during the process so I wanted them to relax in a professional but caring atmosphere. I wanted a relaxed, honest and comfortable area for every client to relax in.

I have a few crystals in certain areas that allow people to talk without judgement and in other areas such as the massage area to relax. There is a salt lamp to help with calm and relax too. It is a no shoe environment to enhance the grounding feeling.

What do you like best about from home, but outside of the house?
I love working from home as it all seems like 1 big unit being with the family and working with more clients because of the flexibility. I can pop out to the shack on a Saturday or a Sunday if a clients wishes to talk.

Are there any difficulties?
There are no difficulties apart from not enough hours in the day to help everyone! 

What is your favourite feature of your workspace?
My favourite feature has to be sitting up to the long table sharing the oils with people, I'm so happy with all of the amazing results I am having and changing people's lives drastically.

Notes on last week – 18 October 2016 http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2016/10/notes-on-last-week-18-october-2016 It was another crazy busy week last week! Work-wise it was mostly processing and office-based things, so I bought a lovely autumnal bouquet to brighten up the office. I had a couple of great days out exploring London - my mum and I managed to go on the Emirates Airline, Up at the o2, on the Thames Clipper, the London Eye, met my sister for dinner and went to see the Lion King - all of which were brilliant! I had another great day for my friend's hen party, including a historical scavenger hunt around Moorgate - great fun! This was a two-pie week - the very best kind of week.

While you're here, just a reminder that the Girl Town exhibition organised by Shutter Hub and the Old Girls' Club at St Margaret's House for Photomonth, is still on, featuring some of my work amongst a wonderful selection of photographs celebrating the culture of the female in the 21st century. Do check it out if you can!

What have you been up to?

 

The weekly montage is a collection of some of my shots (usually from the previous week!), a mix of work and leisure from an assortment of cameras and Instagram. If you like my snaps come join me over on Instagram to see more!

Notes on last week – 11 October 2016 http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2016/10/notes-on-last-week-11-october-2016 Well last week was pretty busy! I was lucky to have work accepted to the Girl Town exhibition organised by Shutter Hub and the Old Girls' Club at St Margaret's House for Photomonth, and went along to the opening on Thursday night, after a busy day of shooting on the South Bank, catching up with a friend and climbing lots and lots of stairs to get to the top of the Switch House at Tate Modern

The exhibition is fantastic! It was filled with fabulous people and so lovely to see all the images together. Whitechapel Gallery included it in their Top 5 exhibitions to see this month, too, which is pretty cool! Check out the Shutter Hub blog to read more about it (and see my photos of the night). Other than that I've been getting on with work, snapping random things that catch my eye, and eating Tunnock's tea cakes. Not bad...

What have you been up to?

Notes on last week – 05 October 2016 http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2016/10/notes-on-last-week-05-october-2016 I thought it was about time I brought back my weekly photo blog - it's been a crazy busy summer and somehow I let this slip, but I'm bringing it as I think it's a good way to log a bit of what I've been up to, the bits I took photos of that is!

 

The nights (and mornings) are drawing in and I find myself in the dark a lot on my travels at the moment. We did have the first fire of the autumn though so it's not all bad. T and I spent a day making our wedding rings - it was brilliant! The Farleigh Hospice charity shop on Moulsham Street in Chelmsford had a camera event... I may have bought something donated. I had a fun trip to Goldhawk Road in London with Julie, we went to see Rad Pitt at the Waiting Room in Colchester - they were awesome! Oh, and there was Monday - that required caffeine.

Home/Work Project - Liz's Home Office http://www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog/2016/9/home/work-project---lizs-home-office Today's blog features Liz's home office as part of my Home/Work project. I visited Liz at her home in July to photograph the office from where she runs her travel consultancy.

What type of business do you run?
I run a travel business called Travel Counsellors. Although I work from my home in Wivenhoe, near Colchester, Essex, my customers come from far and wide. As a Travel Counsellor, I can arrange any holiday from a short break to a round-the-world trip and at a highly competitive price.
Travel Counsellors is a multi-award-winning company whose franchisees like myself provide a highly personal service and a unique degree of financial protection for customers.

When did you start working from home full-time? 
I started working from home in September 2015.

What made you decide to work from home rather than in premises off site?
Travel Counsellors is largely a home-based business. I chose to work from home because it gives me a degree of flexibility in both my work and family life. It also means I can be available for my customers 24/7. 

What do you like best about working from home?
I like the environment and independence which working from home offers. I can choose my own work-life balance. I work near my daughter’s nursery school and I can pop out when I wish.

Are there any difficulties in working from home?
Knowing when to stop!!

What is your favourite feature of your workspace?
There are two favourite features in my office workspace. One is my globe which helps me to visualise all the exciting places where I can arrange holidays for my customers. The other is my painting of a seascape which helps me to relax when things get hectic.

I visited Jo at her light and very calming home in June to photograph her office and treatment room.

Jo's Home Office and Treatment RoomJo's Home Office and Treatment RoomPart of the Home/Work project by Jayne Lloyd, documenting people who work from home. What type of business do you run?

I have been involved with DoTERRA since April 2015. I am having an office, workshop and treatment room area built in the garden as the business is expanding a great deal.

What made you decide to work from home rather than in premises off site?
I wanted a business that could work around my family and would also give my clients a very personal touch and be able to create and work in a very relaxed and therapeutic environment.

What do you like best about working from home?
I love the flexibility it has given my family, myself and my clients. It also makes the clients relax and feel more comfortable. I can also take my dog for a walk and this enables me to clear my mind and relax too.

Are there any difficulties in working from home?
No, I just love it.

What is your favourite feature of your workspace?
I love the tranquility of my treatment room with the aroma of the essential oils in the diffuser and the relaxing music. I love giving the aromatouch massage as I get the benefits of the oils as well as my client.
