Update






well its been a busy few weeks



between family and baby portraits I managed to finally shoot some test shots for Terratag Clothing, although the weather was not on my side Sunday so I will have to do a re-shoot, they wanted blueskyes (a little tricky this time of year) still There are a few great shots, but with a much more moody atmosphere than the brief



I did my first Christmas Black tie event (of the season) on Saturday which was allot of fun, managed to raise some money for Breakspear School. I print on site so they can take their photo's with them that evening.



Lastly I found out that I haven't been selected as 'Commended' or 'Highly Commended' for 'photographer of the year' I thought that was it and I was a little disappointed, but I discovered that I may still be in the running for 1st/ 2nd or 3rd prize so all is good, the winners will be announced early December so only a week or so until I'm put out of my misery, Still if I don't get any further, it was still a fantastic achievement to get as far as I did out of 100,000 entries.

Families and Babies

well Christmas is nearly upon us again and this month has defiantly been all about babies and families, I have been shooting a few for Christmas (I think you can't get much more thoughtful at Christmas then giving the ones you love pictures of the ones they love, its priceless, I do it every year, I give pictures of my little girl to both her grandparents and it always brings tears of joy, even when its so obvious what they are going to get (me being a photographer and all). Tomorrow I have my first toddler group of the season at little rascals (lets hope they are little angels and not rascals)and on Saturday I will be shooting families at an open day for Lighter Life.
have a look at this, one of my favorite images of last week, how beautiful is this little baby?
makes me almost want another one (I did say almost)

Moorpark Shoot

I did a fantastic shoot last week at Moorpark it was a last minute thing but after much begging and borrowing we where very lucy





managed to get the venue sorted and borrow some beautiful clothes from Pica Pica - an amazing vintage clothing and furniture shop in West Drayton we had a 1940's real blue fox coat (stunning) so thanks to Pica Pica for their generosity and thanks to the staff at MoorPark for letting us shoot there. I would also like to thank Lucy who is an amazing makeup artist which I will be defiantly working with in the future. everyone did a great job including my assistant for the day Tom, thanks always a pleasure working with you.
The band is also fantastic, newly formed so they are yet to come up with an official name, I will keep you posted. It was great to get out on location and do what felt like a proper creative editorial style shoot.

The Weding Site is finished (almost)

Well its almost done
check out the new galleries from many of this years weddings plus some old favorites from past years, I have also added a Questions and Answers page, with all those common questions you have, if you think of any more just let me know.
I'm off to a wedding tomorrow as photographer/guest as the couple are friends of mine, so I can wear a fabulous hat.

Almost finished

its almost finished
my main website has a completely new look and I have a new wedding website all linked together with a flashy new splash page. I think I have the gist of this blogging craze now (hopefully)
The wedding website is far from finished yet but it is live (accidentally pressed publish instead of preview) and spent last night in the early hours uploading some pictures on there so people wouldn't be looking at a blank screen, I have lots of ideas for it, but just haven't got the time at the moment to perfect it. So keep coming back and having a look, its going to be fabulous, when finished.
tonight I'm off to st Giles church in Ickenham for a rehearsal of the wedding I'm photographing on Saturday, I haven't done a wedding there for a while, so its a good idea to meet the vicar to find out how strict they are with photos during the ceremony, these days most churches allow photography throughout the whole ceremony. so hopefully he will too.
