Alex and David – Hertfordshire Engagement Shoot

Nestled at the end of a bite that Bedfordshire takes out of the corner of Herfordshire, there’s a stunning area of the Chilterns where David and Alex will be getting married this summer. Just south of the farm where they’ll be holding the reception lies […]

Matt and Kimberley – Bicester Portraits

As I drove up to Matt and Kimberley’s place in Bicester, the weather was improving after a pretty horrible day. They’d just got back from Thorpe Park and I thought a cup of tea couldn’t do any harm. The oncoming storm cloud disagreed … we […]

London Studio Photography – Down for the Count

Last year I did the videography for a wedding at Christchurch in Oxford and the reception had Down for the Count playing an amazing mix of jazz, soul, swing and motown. The band were looking for some updated studio shots with a couple of different […]

Looking back at 2011

It’s always nice to reflect on the year that’s passed – thank you so much to everyone who’s supported me this year. I’m looking forward to more of the same in 2012! Good luck to all in 2012!

Snowfa Revisited

I’ve recently been investigating different print suppliers for my clients. The difference in printing you can get from exactly the same image can be staggering but I was really excited the other day to see the amazing quality prints that came back from Loxley Colour. […]

Bristol Portraits – Steve

My good friend Steve was on the lookout for some new profile pictures for his facebook page and very kindly leant me his rather nice 135L lens as well as his 5DmkII to try with which these shots were taken. I wasn’t sure if I […]

Bristol Newborn Baby Photography – Colm

Baby Colm was absolutely gorgeous at one week – and his older brothers couldn’t help but get involved with the shoot (much to their granddad’s dismay!)
