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.

CFF2010 - day five

Posted in Commercial and PR at 09:57 on 21/09/2010

Day five of the 2010 Cambridge Film Festival might not have been packed with quite so much in the way of big outdoor events as day four, but it was just as exciting for me due to the return of Canadian filmmakers April Mullen & Tim Dorion. April and Tim were last in the UK for the launch of their first feature, the awesome Rock, Paper Scissors: the Way of the Tosser and this year they're back with Gravytrain.

CFF 2010 - day four in photographs

Posted in Commercial and PR at 09:51 on 20/09/2010

After a couple of days away from this year's Cambridge Film Festival to photograph a spectacular wedding in Herefordshire, I was back in Cambridge on Sunday for one of the busiest days of the festival in terms of special events.

The biggest event of the day (and possibly the whole festival) was The Rhythm of the Tracks in the grounds of the Fitzwilliam Museum. Festival stalwart Neil Brand, accompanied by Günter Buchwald on violin, improvised a soundtrack for a series of train-themed silent films.

Susie & Nick's wedding in Leamington Spa

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:35 on 20/09/2010

Susie & Nick's wedding was a fun-packed day that not only took me to Coventry and Leamington Spa for the first time, but included my first ice cream van, cookery competition and quiz at a wedding. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from their wedding day.

Susie & Nick's wedding in Leamington Spa

Posted in Wedding Photography at 11:54 on 16/09/2010

Susie & Nick got married in Coventry and held their wedding reception in Leamington Spa. We've had an odd lot of weather this summer, and their wedding was typical of that with heavy showers quickly clearing to give us a bright day. I'll post more pictures from Susie & Nick's wedding next week, but for now here's an umbrella incident…
