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.

Portrait photography in Cambridge - Hamish

Posted in Portrait Photography at 15:09 on 14/04/2009

The multi-talented Hamish launched Light Blue Software with me earlier this year. Good Friday found us mucking around (sorry, I should say 'being really serious about taking some portrait photos') along The Backs after eating too much cake a bit too early in the morning.

For those of you who live in or near Cambridge, I've got a new favourite café. Benet's on Bene't St (see Local Secrets for a review) serves beautiful coffee and remarkably-shaped cakes. It's great, so go there and eat lots of cake.

Portrait photography in Cambridge - Katy by the Cam

Posted in Portrait Photography at 15:01 on 14/04/2009

Katy is an old friend of mine from Selwyn College who has recently moved back to Cambridge. She was kind enough to help me out with a project I'm working on at the moment, so we arranged a portrait photography session down by the river Cam.

Light Blue: Photo, studio management software for photographers, updated to v1.1

Posted in Light Blue Software at 18:24 on 06/04/2009

We worked hard to make Light Blue: Photo 1.0 comprehensive, but we were never going to rest on our laurels; we've been beavering away to add some new features and remove some gremlins which crept through our net. Thanks to our trusty band of beta testers, we've kicked the tyres and topped up the oil, given everything a final polish and let it out on the world. Light Blue: Photo 1.1 is now available for download.

If you've already registered your copy, you can upgrade for free; if not, download the full version for a (newly-extended) 30-day trial. If you like what you see, you can buy it from our website for the special introductory price of just £325, including VAT.

To find out what's new in Light Blue: Photo 1.1, check http://www.lightbluesoftware.com/news for the full release notes.

Sara & Robert's wedding photos: Christ's College and The Royal Cambridge Hotel

Posted in Wedding Photography at 08:23 on 06/04/2009

Photographing weddings in Cambridge colleges is one of my specialities and - as a graduate of the University of Cambridge - it's always nice to go back to colleges I haven't visited for a while. Sara & Robert met at Christ's College so it was an obvious choice of wedding venue for them. The day started for me with the bridal preparations at The Royal Cambridge Hotel, followed by a rainy dash to Christ's College for the ceremony and reception.

Corporate photography: Co-operative bank launch

Posted in Commercial and PR at 08:05 on 06/04/2009

Corporate and PR photography makes up a large part of my photography business, but commercial photography like this doesn't often make it as far as my blog because I only tend to blog bigger projects such as weddings or major commercial photography projects such as the Cambridge Film Festival.

In an interesting juxtaposition, while the G20 summit was taking place in London the Co-operative bank launched a new corporate banking centre in Cambridge with a drinks reception at Corpus Christi college. It's been a while since I've been into Corpus Christi college and with both King's College and St Catharine's College on the other side of Kings Parade it's easy to overlook, but it's one of the most attractive of the city centre colleges and it's Hall is one of the most richly decorated.
