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.

Wedding photography portfolio updated

Posted in Wedding Photography at 14:53 on 31/03/2009

Wedding photography is my main speciality, so it's exciting to be able to look back over the past year's work when it's time to update my wedding photography portfolio. Choosing a set of images to represent my approach to photographing weddings is always a challenge, but I'm really pleased with the result.

You can find my updated wedding photography portfolio here.

Emily & Jan's engagement portrait in London

Posted in Portrait Photography at 10:21 on 31/03/2009

Emily & Jan are getting married in Cambridgeshire, but they live in London and have strong ties to some of the central areas around the Thames so we decided to do their engagement portrait session there. The shoot took in a wide range of locations, from Tower Bridge and the London mayor's office to the South Bank and Millenium Bridge.

Vida & Steve's wedding at Trinity College, Cambridge

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:22 on 30/03/2009

Trinity College is one of my favourite wedding venues in Cambridge. As the largest of the University of Cambridge's colleges, it's a spectacular location and contains some of my favourite locations in Cambridge.

Vida & Steve's wedding made good use of Trinity College but also took in the Shire Hall register office on Castle Hill and La Mimosa, an Italian restaurant on the River Cam. Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from their wedding day.

Debbie & Ben's engagement portrait session in Cambridge

Posted in Portrait Photography at 09:06 on 24/03/2009

I've been really busy since getting back from holiday two weeks ago, combining wedding photography, engagement portrait sessions and training sessions for photographers with working on version 1.1 of Light Blue: Photo. I haven't had much chance to post any images for a while, so I'm going to try and make up for that over the next couple of weeks!

Debbie & Ben are holding their wedding at the lovely Longstowe Hall in Cambridgeshire and we decided to do their engagement portrait session in central Cambridge last week. Spring has arrived, so it was good to be able to get out onto The Backs after a muddy winter!

Children's photography seminars: a reminder

Posted in Seminars at 17:11 on 19/03/2009

A quick reminder for you all: children's portrait photographer Helen Bartlett is presenting a series of seminars for Calumet over the next few weeks. The Belfast and London dates have sold out, but there's still a few tickets left for the other cities.

Helen will guide you through the highs and the lows of setting up your business and explain many of the key techniques she uses each and every day to ensure that each and every client has a stunning set of images.

* How to develop your own style by thinking through your images and what you want to achieve rather than imitating the photographer down the road.

* How to evaluate a location for the best shooting spots: be it a park, a beach or a basement flat.

* How to work with light, or lack of it, indoors and out.

* How to get the best from the children and achieve the all important family group shot.

*What to do when you hit meltdown (yes, we work with two year olds) and how to get the shoot up and running again.

* How to market your new found skills and attract new clients.

Find out more, including how to book tickets, on Helen's blog.
