Changing The Way We Shoot – Wedding Photos And Woburn Abbey Scuplture Gallery

About a year or so ago a new device was invented by a US company that allows the use of flash guns to used off camera and although that was nothing new what this new invention did was quite remarkable and without getting technical this allows those photographer that embrace the technology to revolutionize the way we can shoot with off camera flash and have full control over the light, as an example the image below was shot in daylight but I wanted to create a nightime look. What counts to brides and grooms of course is results and here is … Continue reading

Olivia & Nick The Old Kent Barn

Well I hadn’t disappeared off the face of earth, some of my regular visitors may have wondered ‘how come no posts’. My wife came to work with me last November on marketing and sales for our studio portrait side of the business and she has kept me very busy with portraits; so little time so much to do:) Anyway I had to post some from last weekend’s wedding at the Old Kent Barn near Canterbury of Olivia & Nick’s wedding. They both were so much fun to photograph and both enjoy playing for the camera. Olivia was keen on doing some … Continue reading

Outdoor Photo Shoot In London

This week we had the pleasure of photographing Dawn & Bill from the US who were over here on holiday. They found me on Google about 3 months ago and after a few emails sorted out a date. Being October could have been risky with the weather but it was a glorious day. Well all had a great time, started off near the hotel they were staying in round Leicester Square and spent about 6 hours in total, I thoroughly enjoy do these shoots and hope they will like like what we did which we rushed to them today so … Continue reading

Wedding Lanterns At Night

Chineese lanterns seem to have become quite popluar in recent years and with many couples opting for an extended coverage this year in particular has meant we are around to photograph events after dark on some weddings. I’m really pleased with these two. Digital photography and high iso capability has meant creating such a possibility and as cameras continue to improve so will their ability no doubt at low level light. Of course one needs a good operator as well

Wedding At Marble Hill House In Twickenham

What a busy, busy time at the moment. Two full days of weddings last weekend and an all day one yesterday. Just had a chance to look at yesterday’s and when I took this one below I got all excited knowing it had a lot going for it; well what I like about a good photo anyway. I love the light striking the faces. For me the light on the groom with his face half lit I find works really well for men and Alice has her face looking towards the window just out of shot which I find beautifying … Continue reading

3 Weddings In One Weekend

Well what a busy bank holiday we had with weddings on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Here’s a few from Sunday’s wedding. Wedding photography at Hever Castle is such a pleasure with it’s stunning castle and gardens. Weather was my ideal as well, overcast with cloud detail, not that flat white sheet we oftne get in the winter. We took a good mix of reportage and directed, here though although some reportage most are directed.
