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.


Light Blue: Photo wins major software industry prize

blogImage1Light Blue: Photo, the business software for photographers that I launched earlier this year through my company Light Blue Software, has won a major software industry prize.

The FileMaker CubeAwards are an annual event designed to acknowledge the achievements of software developers and Light Blue Software walked away from the prestigious awards ceremony with the ‘Best private sector solution’ prize.

Award entries were shortlisted by a judging panel made up of representatives from FileMaker, seasoned developers and independent IT experts. The shortlisted entrants were then asked to attend a judging day where they could demonstrate their solutions to the judging panel.

The judging panel described Light Blue: Photo as " of the slickest vertical market solutions we’d ever had the pleasure of picking apart, wide in scope with innovative, clever, features built to high standards, demonstrating an exemplary user experience."

We’re delighted to have won the CubeAwards. Light Blue: Photo has proved to be a big hit with both professional photographers and the trade press, but receiving recognition from such a major software industry competition is a great reward for all of the hard work we’ve put into it.
