Shooting outdoors

January 16, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
All photography is inspired by light, light that we either create with flashes and the like to more natural light of the outdoors. As I shoot I'm always looking for great light to pose you in. So the winter is rolling away and it's time to look towards Spring. Winter brings about a flat, non inspiring light with mostly grey overcast days. Once in...

So How Far Do I Walk At Function ??

January 09, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
When I work I give everything 100%... from the preparation before hand, getting to know you, getting to know the venue and the event shoot itself. A function shoot can easily be 8 hours or more. From travel to arrival. Set up for portraits and then the party and the journey home. I've long wondered what sort of distance I cover on foot during th...

New Born Photography

July 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
New Born Baby There's something about taking pictures of a new born, ideally in the first few weeks whilst they are all still nice and scrunched up, generally asleep. Wait a little longer and they know you are there and make life just a little bit harder. Babies can be unpredictable at the best of times so I always make sure to have plenty of time...

Having a good back up strategy

July 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Back It Up I'm paranoid, it's true. First you've invited me to take your pictures, that in itself is scary enough to some people.

Some times I do corporate work too ...

May 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
OK so when people ask me what I do I tell them I'm a photographer and I take pictures of people and pets. If it has eyes and a heartbeat then that's me. From time to time that changes. I've done some work for the Spire Bushey hospital, headshots and the like, and I got a phone call late last week. This isn't a word for word transcription but it wi...
