December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.

Closing weekend of the 2011 Cambridge Film Festival

Posted in Commercial and PR at 15:24 on 27/09/2011

The 2011 Cambridge Film Festival drew to a close at the weekend, and now I've a chance to recover from 11 busy days of events, special guests and phenomenally anti-social hours I can post some pictures!

Let's start with Saturday evening's big event - Paddy Considine visiting Cambridge to present his directorial debut, Tyrannosaur. I've already posted my favourite portrait from that evening, but I like it enough to post it again right now:

On Friday, we played host to Denis Dercourt, who was visiting to present his new film Tomorrow At Dawn. I'm useless at remembering movie facts (or any other kind of trivia) so I wish I'd looked Denis up before I met him - he directed the brilliant The Page Turner and those who've seen it will know what I'm getting at when I say that I wish I could have found a piano (or, even scarier, a cello) for him to pose with:

The Cambridge Arts Picturehouse is staffed by many lovely people, but if you take the time to get to know them you'll discover that they're all frighteningly talented as well as being great company. Project Trident is a collective of Picturehouse staff who make films in their spare time, and this year's Tridentfest was the third annual show of their work. Here are some of the Project Trident team talking about their work:
