Sally Lloyd of MyriadLifePhoto enjoys Norfolk life, paying tribute to the beauty and history of the county through her photography, writing and designs.

My Norfolk landscape photography encompasses the coast, the Norfolk Broads, and the fine city of Norwich. I live by the River Wensum, right next door to NCFC (you can see my photo blog posts about the river via my website).

Being so central to city life is a privilege. I shop at the amazing Norwich Market on an almost daily basis, and I am constantly inspired by the stunning Norwich Cathedral. It's humbling to live in a city so steeped in history, and it's comforting to know it'll be here long after I'm gone.

Although we live in this inspiring age of technology, I realised how much I use notebooks on a daily basis to record thoughts, ideas, and to-do lists. It occurred to me that I should create a collection of Norfolk notebooks so that all lovers of Norfolk could enjoy the scenery as they wrote too. Daily planners and journals soon arrived in the collection, together with larger square notebooks. All with tactile soft back covers, they have a luxurious feel to them, are lovely to use, and are also great to give as gifts!

The Colour my Cover notebooks are great to get artistic with, making them uniquely your own. There are plenty of city and coastal scenes to choose from. Lined internal pages to get creative with.

In addition to notebooks, I have created a collection of Norfolk designs to celebrate favourite places along the coast and in the city. These designs are available on a wide range of items, including clothing, tech and pet accessories, home decor, stationery, and prints in a variety of formats.

A portrait is much more than a photograph .. it is a there as an investment in your history, for posterity, an heirloom and a treasured memory.

Portraits capture the real you, a thousand stories can be seen in a great photograph. Each time you view your portrait you’ll relive a great memory. 

Your portrait experience will be a laughter-filled day, centred around you and your needs. The session will be fun and natural, with no worries or hurries. The best shots can take a while, but with a sense of fun in a relaxed atmosphere, we’ll work together to capture your true nature and create a portrait telling your story. 

ATN003-2.jpg

I’m more than used to working with large families, tired babies and grumpy teens! I have years of making even the most camera-shy individuals shine; the day is yours and I will make sure you, your family members or friends all have a wonderful experience. 

ATN001-2.jpg

Pet Portraits are the perfect way to capture your favourite friend’s unique personality; guaranteed to make you smile each time you view your artwork. 

The best shots come from patience, a healthy sense of humour and a relaxed atmosphere. I am more than used to tenacious terriers, reserved cats and even sleeping reptiles! (The only pet exception is spiders — sorry, I’m an absolute arachnophobe!)

ATN005-2.jpg

Together, you and your pet will have a great experience, designed around your specifications. Whether you prefer highly stylised imagery, your pet in a natural surrounding or being caught playing mischievously in the studio, your pet’s portrait will capture the essence of the companion you know and love.  

ATN007-2.jpg

Equine portraits are the perfect way to bring out your horse’s expressive body language and personality. Your portrait in your home will ensure the strong bond between you both is unbroken — whether your horse is in livery or at the bottom of your garden.  Your photography experience will be a wonderful moment to relive and enjoy each time you view the artwork which has encapsulated your horse’s nature.

Lisa North Photography … in words!

Photography is something I have always relished; there has been a camera in my bag since I can remember. To me, photography immortalises people and animals, a portrait can be held and loved for generations. 

I have been fortunate to work as a professional photographer for over ten years, spending time capturing images in the studio as well as in beautiful country settings ranging from beloved grandparents, family portraits, favourite pets and new parents to create fine art for posterity. 

Living in the rural community of Harleston lends itself to my art; I adore exploring the surrounding countryside and discovering beauty spots perfect for location shoots with animals and families. As an experienced horse and dog owner, I have also become specialised in equestrian and animal photography, which I certainly view more as a love than a job!

Broom Boats has been a part of the Brundall boating community for over a century. Our heritage is boat building, but our future is focused on protecting and opening up the Broads waterways for the benefit of its wildlife and people.

We’re reviewing every aspect of how we do business. We aim to bring a greater range of services to our customers and the Brundall community, and to protect the environment of the Broads.

In addition to providing luxury boating holidays, we also maintain and repair all makes and models of boats. For boat owners, we provide a small number of private moorings at our marina on the South Broads.

BrmBts1_0060_sr.jpg

We have a fleet of 24 luxury hire boats which can be booked throughout the year, alongside electric day boats and fishing boats which are available to hire for days out on the Norfolk Broads.

You can visit local attractions and amenities using your foldable Broom Bike and explore the peace and tranquillity of Norfolk on two wheels. We have recently added the Food Vault to our site, an on site café which serves a range of freshly cooked food, available to both boating holiday customers and passing visitors from the local community. We have also built an indoor seating area for the café. 

We have expanded our range of services by becoming a floating Waterlodge distributor, the perfect way to have a holiday on the water.

We have great belief in young people and are members of the 5%Club. The 5%Club is an organisation which promotes apprenticeships in the UK and we are proud to say 18% of our workforce are apprentices. We want to ensure the valuable skills which our workforce boast are passed on to future generations, maintaining the level of quality which has always been demanded by Broom. The future is in good hands.

Sustainability is always at the forefront of our intentions at Broom Boats, by protecting and caring for our environment, we can ensure it will be here to enjoy for future generations. By using carbon offsetting, ground, air and water source heat pumps, renewable energy, water monitoring and electric transport, we are helping to sustain the natural environment in which we operate.

We welcome visitors to our site in Brundall, many changes have been made over the last two years and we welcome people to visit to see how our site continues to develop. We are lucky to be situated in such a beautiful part of the Norfolk Broads, so visit us for a coffee and watch our marina in operation.
