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.

2008 Cambridge Film Festival: day eleven

Posted in Commercial and PR at 12:59 on 29/09/2008

The 2008 Cambridge Film Festival has been a great experience, combining the usual programme of brilliant filmmaking at the Arts Picturehouse with a series of inspired events that took the festival out into Cambridge. It ended yesterday with what was probably the strongest programme of the festival, including sold-out screenings of Werner Herzog's Encounters At The End Of The World, Peter Greenaway's Nightwatching and of course the surprise movie.

Starting early last week, a list of predictions for the surprise movie appeared in the festival office and I got in there quickly with my guess: the Coen brothers' new comedy, Burn After Reading. The Tilda Swinton connection made it sound like a good guess, so I was very happy when the film rolled and proved me right. What a way to end the festival.

"As featured in The Guardian…"

Posted in Commercial and PR at 09:41 on 28/09/2008

I've just stumbled across this piece in The Guardian about one of the open air screenings at this year's Cambridge Film Festival. The Magdalene Street screenings are definitely one of my highlights of this year's festival and it's great to see one of my pictures illustrating the piece.

And now onto the eleventh and final day of the Cambridge Film Festival! I have a ticket for the surprise movie, so I'm hoping to be so blown away by festival director Tony Jones' choice that I don't regret missing every other film at this year's festival...

Thursday was a bit quieter for me in terms of the number of guests arriving at the Cambridge Film Festival, but I made up for that by shooting some great Q&A sessions.

Jean-Pierre Lledo's Algeria, Unspoken Stories inspired fierce debate after its UK premiere:
