Blog has moved!!

Hi everyone - this blog has now moved to http://www.tamararogers.co.uk/blog.

It's also expanding- under the banner of 'Fade', not only will you be able to get updates on my own photography and projects but I will also be collating free textures and resources for you to use, highlighting other photographers and artists' work, sharing weird and wonderful stories for inspiration, and pointing out really great tutorials/techniques.

Go and check it out and I'm looking forward to seeing you over there - any suggestions feel free to email me at tmrrogers@yahoo.co.uk.

I'll be highlighting new blog posts from my twitter feed (http://www.twitter.com/tamrogers) but don't forget you'll also be able to sign up to rss feeds using the button on the right hand side of the new blog.

See you there!

Cheers

Tam

My website has had a makeover!

My brand new revamped website is now online and ready to visit! You can see my photography, illustration, graphics and retouching work, and even listen to an interview I did on an Amerian radio show "Sci Fi Saturday Night".

As of the 16th July I'm going to be available on a fulltime basis for commisions and freelance contracts so feel free to get in touch.

Also, I'll be showing and selling some prints in Northampton on Saturday 10th July - I'll keep you posted with more details so watch this space.

a simple potrait - when will winter end?

So as the long bank holiday weekend is coming to a close (and a good one it was at that) I can't wait now for a bit of sun... or at least no rain, for a whole day... maybe I'm asking too much but you never know. On the up side I finally got my studio pretty much set up in my new house, it's great to have a proper space to leave the lights up and ready to shoot in again.

Welcome to the product of a few bottles of wine on a friday night. Currently recovering and soon to be working on some new pictures/revamping website, we'll see how the day develops...

Mad as a hatter


So excited about the imminent release of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. In a similar way to Sweeney Todd the style looks set to be amazing. Can't wait to see it on the big screen!

New magazine by Alan Moore with cover art by Tamara Rogers


Yes that's right, Alan Moore's magazine Dodgem Logic, first issue due out later this month, uses my image as the front cover! Here's what he had to say about it...
"Drawing upon an overlooked and energetic pool of local talent as well as numerous friends and co-conspirators from comic books, the arts or entertainment, Dodgem Logic sets out to provide a splash of subterranean exotica in a bleached-out cultural and social landscape. Published every other month by counter-culture veterans KNOCKABOUT, Dodgem Logic is a forty page full-colour spectacle that, in addition, has an eight-page local section in each issue, thus inviting other areas to publish regional editions by providing their own inserts.

As cheap and beautiful as a heartbreaking teenage prostitute, Dodgem Logic has a cover price of £2.50, with its content similarly tailored to the fiscal toilet-bowl that we are currently engaged in sliding down. Regular columnists provide delicious, inexpensive recipes, wide-ranging medical advice, simple instructions for creating stylish clothing and accessories from next to nothing, guides to growing your own dinner by becoming a guerrilla gardener, and, in the first of Dave (The Self-Sufficient-ish Bible) Hamilton’s environmental columns, a bold experiment in living with no money. The same approach to helping readers deal with socio-economic meltdown and a blitz of repossessions is there in upcoming features on the present-day resurgence of the squatters’ movement, or in our communiqu├ęs from the Steampunk/ Post-Civilisation gang on how to start rebuilding culture and society before those things have broken down completely and our children are reduced to battering each other to a bloody pulp with their now-useless X-Boxes in a dispute over the last tub of pot noodles.

Not only seeking to give practical advice on getting through a rough stretch, Dodgem Logic is also committed to alleviating the attendant sense of anguish and despair by brightening the world with the astonishing cartoon-work of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s sublime Kevin O’Neill or that of underground legend Savage Pencil; the musings of Father Ted, The IT Crowd and Black Book’s own Graham Linehan or of the nation’s sweetheart, the implacably positive Josie Long; even a delirious commemoration of the lunar landing’s anniversary by the masterful Steve Aylett. In addition to a variously-hosted women’s column launched by Lost Girls co-creator and erstwhile underground cartoon artist Melinda Gebbie, Mr. Moore will himself be contributing a lead feature on the history of underground subversive publishing from its origins in the thirteenth century, along with various illustrations and words of advice. All these and many other sterling features, including a free CD of magnificent home-grown Northampton music over fifty years, will be contained in the historic premiere issue, sporting an hallucinatory front cover by digital artist Tamara Rogers and debuting this November. Wake up and smell the fairground ozone! No ramming!”
...can't wait!

Northampton landscape prints available to buy

This series of photographs was taken as part of a commission for The Lowdown, a Northamptonshire based charity giving help and support to young people. They do great work, and it was brilliant to be able to work with them on this project. The series reflects scenes in Northamptonshire in a whimsical and mysterious way.

You can find out more about The Lowdown at their website:

and by signed prints from my store:
