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.

As featured in The Guardian...

Posted in Miscellaneous at 13:53 on 17/02/2007

The Guardian's Annalisa Barbieri interviewed me last week for an article that appears in her Personal Shopper column today. A reader had asked her to recommend DIY albums that she could use to to mount a mixture of professionally printed and amateur prints.

DIY albums are rather different to the albums I produce for my own clients, but it was interesting to have an excuse to research what's available on the high street or via mail order and how they compare with professional albums. Although the rise of digital photography has brought many new styles of album to the market, there's still a healthy selection of DIY albums out there.

Despite the range of choices available, the biggest differences between DIY albums and those that I use are design and build quality. There are some great pieces of album design software available to professional photographers at the moment and combining them with suppliers that can produce albums to your personal designs with the quality and care that comes from making them by hand produces fantastic results.

New album supplier

Up until now, I've always preferred matted albums. My album supplier in New Zealand produces fabulous work - gorgeous prints mounted onto heavyweight pages designed in software that allows me to combine elegant designs with traditional construction techniques.

Today, I'm adding unmatted albums to my services in addition to matted albums. Unmatted albums allow me to print directly onto the album page instead of mounting prints behind cardboard mats, giving an altogether different finish to the more traditional matted style.







Cambridgeshire Agenda

One of our images graces the cover of the weddings section in this month's issue of Cambridgeshire Agenda. It was taken at one of our weddings last summer, where Helen and I were very excited to be working with a bride who used for work for the Fitzwilliam Museum. Sarah arranged access to the museum for us, so we stopped off there for a wedding portrait session on our way from the church to the reception.
