WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PECKFORTON CASTLE, CHESHIRE

Is Cheshire a posh place where everyone drives a 4×4? What I do I know is that I really enjoyed my visit to that part of Englandshire a few years back, when I was asked to be Heather & Adam’s wedding photographer for their wedding at the beautiful Peckforton Castle. As I’m

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT GLASGOW UNIVERSITY CHAPEL & THE BRIG O’ DOON

And on the subject of looking fondly back at weddings past which I’ve had the pleasure of photographing…I have to say that I do like the odd jaunt over to the west coast! Glasgow weddings always seem to have a certain something. But I’m not quite sure what! Whatever it is, it

One of my favourite parts of the day and something I really encourage – photographs of the ‘getting ready’ stages on your wedding day. It’s amazing how this part of the day differs from wedding to wedding. Some mornings are chaotic and frantic. Other mornings, the room in

My wedding photography resolution for 2011

Whether I’m shooting a wedding in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London or Venice, my wedding photography resolution for 2011 is to use video light a lot more. In particular to explore situations where I can mix video light with existing ambient or flash. Used well, a video light can crank up the

My photography gear for 2011

It always makes me smile when I hear photo-enthusiasts talk excitedly about new equipment releases from Nikon or Canon or wherever. Goodness knows how many times, in years gone by, I’ve waited anxiously with baited breath for the next camera release or lens or even bag upgrade and how many
