Black & White Photography

There’s something about black & white photography that I find hard to describe what it is I like so much about it. Maybe it’s the fact that photography ‘painting with light’ allows the viewer to just see where the light is falling across the surfaces within the photo and leaves it uncluttered of colour. Sometimes I think I’d like to just photograph everything with the intention of it being black and white but then on a wedding we feel we have to see the colour of the flowers and dresses. Certainly many fine art photographers predominantly worked in black & … Continue reading

Wedding Photography At Newick Park – Katie & Andy

Saturday was such a beautiful day for Katie & Andy’s wedding. The church ceremony in Eastbourne and then off to Newick Park. Doing wedding photography at Newick Park is a great pleasure, it has to be one of my favorite venues in the South East so I was really pleased when Katie & Andy booked me to take their photos. I love the Art Deco style of this lovely country house with it’s fantastic photo opportunities. Here’s a few from the day:

Another Gold

This year I have decided to make an effort to make make sure I enter my wedding work in to competitions and having already got a Gold award in March I was pleased to get another for May’s competion in British Professional Photography Awards.

MPA SE Region Workshop

Yesterday myself and John Langridge put on our first worshop for the South East region MPA. We had around 20 delegates who all hopefully went away with something from what we had to impart in the short space of a day. Being my first workshop I certainly thoroughly enjoyed it. Here are a few images from the day. Non of the models were professional which is my preference so the posing etc. is down to my direction which I feel so important so I can show how to direct a bride. Seeing that it was such a success John & … Continue reading
