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.

University of Cambridge May Bumps 2008

Posted in Commercial and PR at 17:27 on 23/06/2008

The May Bumps is one of the most visually exciting events in the University of Cambridge's calendar. Unlike the annual Boat Race that pits Oxford and Cambridge's boat crews against each other in one decisive race, the May Bumps takes place over four days as each college's boats battle each other to advance further up the river. Here are some of my favourite images from the afternoon I spent taking pictures on the river Cam.

The corners see lots of excitement as boats try to cut inside each other to bump:

Why use a telephoto for sports photography when you've got a superwide lens in your camera bag?

The start of each race can be very congested:
