Italian and Charming. Wholesalers in the UK for Zoppini Charms, Jewellery and accessories.

Two new sites have now gone live in recent days......... a Jewellery Wholesaler from Tuscany based in the UK and a community and services site for the Kemptown and St James' area of Brighton and Hove, east of the Pavillion, here in East Sussex.

And for we have two new customers, so please welcome Talking Tots for childrens language development in Brighton, Hove and Lewes, as well as Mick from MB Roofing, who has so many positive comments and feedback from his customers he is clearly the Roofer to use in Brighton and Fiveways.

On meanwhile, Elaine Borges-Ibanez of Reel Life Photography, a Destination Wedding Photographer based in Yorkshire, has joined the site for her fourth consequitive year; Elaine is our longest standing customer and a lovely woman with it, over the years I've grown to recognise her as a friend as much as a customer, and we completely endorse Elaines photography and could not recommend her more strongly. See Elaines work here And we are likely to see Ivan Luckie providing coverage for Weddings in Mexico in the next few days too, but I'll save Ivans welcome for next time.

Photography Courses in Sussex.

Well, happy new year folks, 2009 keeps rearing its ugly head but here we are late Janury 2010 with all that the new decade promises. Somehwat overflowing with optimism here, lots going on, some sad, some very bad, and some unbelievable good fortune too, not to mention good health and the very best friends and family around me, so what's to grumble about? Absolutely nothing! Although a healthy dose of realism is always a good idea, I tend to remind myself from time to time that whilst men makes plans God laughs. :-)

On the photography front, sands are already shifting, but I hope to be running courses in the south of France with Deyan Photography of Australia some time in June, and a first visit to Egypt is also planned for the long overdue Suez project; there's a chance to visit Marakesh and I am planning, with some trepidation (hence the God laughs comment above) to go up Killi before it loses it's snowy peeks completely; but that's October and this is January, with winter and Xmas padding still evident some serious training has to occurr between now and then.

I have been working on various websites, producing images for Elwood Wines in Brighton (see and also working on a new Jewellery website. Currently planned are the new local sites for Brighton KemptownOnline and SevenDialsOnline so keep a lookout since the site has been such a success.

Last month a number of photographers joined us at including I am delighted to say Jeremy Standley; Jeremy is without doubt one of the very finest Destination Wedding Photographers in the world today, hugely respected by his peers and those elsewhere in the industry too.

Lastly, on the photography courses front I am looking to extend geographically from Sussex to London as well with the potential to go into any area in the UK and deliver day courses, so long as sufficient numbers make it worthwhile. I was approached by two people from Newcaslte asking me to run one on the Northumberland coast and have asked them to come back when there are at least 8 of them. So, similarly, if you would like me to run a course elsewhere do get in touch; I am now setting dates for the Sussex courses; snow and ice shut one course this month already, so next dates are likely to be in February and March. Do get in touch if interested, the courses are extremely good fun and very inspiring. See more here
