WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT MAR HALL IN BISHOPTON – ALISON & COLIN

Naturals in front of the camera. I always love shooting at Mar Hall. Something special usually comes of it. I spent a wonderful morning capturing the fun of the getting-ready stages with Alison, her bridesmaids Jennifer & Lynne and her mum & dad. And Mark Owen. Yep, Take That were resident

X-Factor

Due to the relocation of a much valued team player, I’m on the lookout for someone new to join my gang. Not a full time employee or even a part time one but a competent photographer willing to join my network of contacts. Someone I can hire to be my 2nd shooter at a wedding or if I need a

Don’t compromise

It’s what you do with it…

I can buy a £200 pair of adidas super striker football boots. But that won’t make me David Beckham. Ronaldinho can juggle a tennis ball with his bare feet. On a sandy beach. It’s not about the equipment you have. It’s what you do with it that counts using the skill you have at

Must have taken you ages to get that shot!

Well, no, not really! While it’s always nice to get random emails from people complimenting my photography, it’s interesting to note how often it’s assumed that it must take me ages to set up my directed shots – to light them, to pose them and to photograph them. Nothing

I’m totally thrilled having just taken delivery of a new set of ‘Parents Albums’ from my bookbinders. I still call them Parents Albums because they’re so popular with mums and dads! But really these replica albums are ideal for any family member – brothers, sisters,
