CITY GARDENS - CP CREATIVE BLOG
Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? If you live in London, the answer is with innovation. City gardens have to tick lots of boxes, providing outdoor space for planting, relaxation and entertaining. Usually in a relatively small area, they need clever designs to make them work well.
We are aware that in the city some of you may not have a very large garden to work with or maybe not a garden at all, but who’s to say you can’t be creative with whatever space you do have? Whether you are blessed with a captivating cityscape,...
Top of the Props - CP Creative Weekly Photo Blog - Part Four
Well the famous saying that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb did not really ring true this year. It seemed to come in like a lion and get progressively worse and ended up leaving like a pride of rabid angry lions wanting to tear strips off you. Aside from the weather, the month of March was positive for CP Creative property marketing and saw us photograph and floorplan over 400 properties across London. In addition, we have completed a project of virtual tours and artistic photography for a student...

It can be hard to find your enthusiasm for your day job when you've just spent 2 weeks eating, drinking and being merry with family and friends, however without your day job, you'll soon be in a pickle so here are some top tips for finding your energy for the new year ahead.
1. Eat Well
Have a detox, cut out alcohol, eat lots of fruit and vegetables. The Christmas excess can leave you feeling bloated due to too much salt, fat and sugar - and alcohol is a know depressant. Be kind to your body by giving...
Photographers on Ice
Who'd have thought that photographers have a natural ability at ice skating?? Turns out they do! We were all surprisingly good with only Jon and Ashleigh ending up with damp knees and that was thanks to arm-linked groups of children acting as both obstacles and missiles! Check out the photos taken by a specialist iphone-ographer. The centre photo below shows (from left to right), Patricia, David, Jon, Sam, Erica, Max, Ashleigh and Gabby.
Erica Hawkins, normally based in our office as Creative Manager, recently went on a course to learn more about using flash in portrait photography. She is building her own career outside of work as a wedding photographer and has already got 12 weddings booked for next year. Here is her account of the course:

10 things we think make Britain great.
1. Funny Place Names
You literally couldn't make them up; take this small sample of British place names - someone, somewhere is having a laugh.
Prickwillow, Cockermouth, Sodom, Bush, Bell End, Cockshutt, Dicker, Fannyfield, Weeford, Upperthong, Shitterton, Badgers Mount, Brown Willy, Pratt's Bottom, Looe, Muff, Tarty Burn and Twatt. Not forgetting the River Piddle which flows to Puddletown in Dorset. There are so many more we could list here, but we are scared that our blog will get banned if we put them all in.
Anyone who has walked around Camden recently could easily have thought that it is overrun with the un-dead, based on the alternative fashions on show, the pale skin, dark hollow eyes and body markings and piercings, but might there be a reason that Camden has become this kooky, individual hot bed of eccentricity? Could it be something in the water or even spirits from the past possessing its current inhabitants.
