As part of the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse's ongoing series of Q&As, director Warwick Thornton came all the way from Australia to present a preview screening of Samson & Delilah.
As well as its excellent regular programme, the Arts Picturehouse hosts all sorts of fantastic events throughout the year, all of which help to make Cambridge a great place for cinema lovers. As well as regular Q&A sessions with filmmakers like Warwick Thornton, there is of course the Cambridge Film Festival, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The Cambridge Film Festival is running a fundraising campaign to help make this year's festival even more impressive than last year's - you can find out more about it on the festival website.
Enough proselytising; here are some pictures.

Cambridge always provides me with constant variety for pre-wedding portrait sessions, so I had great fun getting muddy with Caroline & Steve last week. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from their engagement portrait session in Cambridge.

Unfortunately quite a lot at the moment if you are my friend and fellow photographer David Calvert.
David has just discovered this in light of the recent stories run in the daily papers suggesting that Jon Venables (who was convicted of murdering James Bulger) was going by the name of David Calvert. Since then David’s photography site has had over 50,000 hits. Normally we’d be thrilled that his site is so popular, but at the moment he is obviously very concerned.
As his colleagues we are doing all we can to help David disassociate himself from this dreadful story.
David, 46, is a national award winning photographer and his business David Calvert Photography, based in Hertfordshire, specialises in family and child portraiture. David has our complete support in these difficult circumstances and we hope very much that they pass without impact to him, his own family or his business.

The latest issue of Photo Pro, the UK's biggest magazine for professional photographers, dropped through my letterbox this morning and I was delighted to see that I'm featured in there alongside the biggest names in wedding photography in the UK. The article is all about how established photographers dealt with their first weddings, what they wish they'd known back then and their tips for those just entering the business and facing their first wedding shoot. The magazine hits newsstands later on this week.

After so much recent travel (my last four weddings were in India, Lincolnshire, London and Gloucestershire) it was a pleasant change to stay in Cambridgeshire for Rachel & Steven's wedding at Sheene Mill. It's been a while since I've been to Sheene Mill, but it's a delightful restaurant and hotel near Cambridge and another of those venues that proves that, for me, wedding photography is all about the people involved, because all of the weddings I've photographed there have been very different.
Here's a small selection of my favourite pictures from Rachel & Steven's wedding at Sheene Mill:
