Black & White Photography At Dungeness

It’s been a while since I went out just for the fun of it to take some landscapes photos so off I went to the coast at Dungeness. This is quiet a strange place in many ways, it’s like going back in time as it feels like this place hasn’t changed for years. If you fancy a vistit to somewhere quite different I highly recommend it especailly if you like taking photos. I will take another trip there some point as I didn’t have quite enough time as I also wanted to photograph the acoustic mirrors bu these a bit … Continue reading

Wedding Photography At The Roman Baths In Bath

reflection in bath, bride & groom

From a photographers point if view in many respects to get a booking to shoot a wedding at such an historic beautiful venue and a gorgeous looking couple is a wedding photographers dream. When I first met Nisha & Nick last year at a wedding show at London’s Excel centre I was really excited a soon as they mentioned where their wedding was going to take place. I guess I’m selfish in many ways as I wanted to really be their chosen photographe because I know it would be such an inspiring venue to work at to create some beautiful … Continue reading

Wedding Photography At Botleys Mansion Of Karen & Tristan

We recently had the pleasure of photographing Karen & Tristan at the beautiful Botleys Mansion in Surrey. Weather was looking rather grey on our arrival but it turned to a much brighter day later in the day. I have attended 100s of venues throughout the UK and what I was impressed with at Botleys was the very professional level of service of the staff, they were very helpful and the food came out to all the guests within a few minutes so all got to eat together unlike another recent wedding when the top table had finished their main course … Continue reading

Our Baby Thomas At 8 Days Old

Some portraits of our new liitle baby BOY Thomas who was a week and 1 day old this morning at 2.10am. Thomas was a healthy 8lb6oz at birth and mother and baby are doing well although mum in particular is lacking some sleep. Photographing new born babies means you get to capture some priceless moments and we will treasure these many years and so too hopefully will Thomas in time. He’s such a cute little boy and some say he looks like me but I think he’s far cuter;)

Wedding Photography At Hever Castle

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Victoria & Igor at the beautiful Russian Orthodox Church, South Kensington followed by a reception at Hever Castle in Kent. It was a very wet day but Victoria was up for photos outside at Hever despite the weather conditions. In may ways it sets the scene for some more unusual wedding photography as it offers opportunities for some lovely photos if the bride is brave enough. I hope you enjoy this sampling of the couples shots of the day.

Wedding Photography At Gosfield Hall, Essex Of Alex & Tony

We had the pleasure on bank holiday Monday of shooting the wedding of Alex & Tony at the beautiful Gosfield Hall in Essex, the weather was just perfect or rather the timing was as no sooner had the guests sat down for the wedding breakfast did the weather turn rather awful but hey we got the photos done outside that we wanted good weather for and anyway by then no one really cared as the guests were enjoying the food. If it’s going to rain I often seem to experience days like this. Whether it’s my luck or the couple’s … Continue reading

Chimmney Sweep At The Wedding

I haven’t seen a chimmney sweep for a few years at a wedding. It’s a tradition dating back over 200 years and it’s apparently good luck for the bride to see one on her wedding day. Often they hide away like this one did ready to greet the bride and groom as soon as they walk out the church. In most cases arranged by the mother of the bride as a surprise. I happended to see him as I popped outside the church during the ceremony for a few outside shots and couldn’t resist taking a shot of him. I processed … Continue reading

A Day Out In Brighton – HDR Photos On Brighton Beach; Actually HDR Look

Yesterday (Sunday) the weather was perfect for the time of year and so we decided to head for Brighton and went with our friends David and his girls. David is a videographer friend of our’s and so we thought we’d have some fun and try out some different photography techniques on the seafront. The light was perfect for a technique I love to use; off camera flash, and here’s a few from what I took. I’ve included a shot that shows the flash guns so you can see how the lighting effect is created. For those of you technically interested here’s a full rundown: … Continue reading
