Outdoor screenings? Been there, done that. Watching films from a punt? Yeah, whatever, that's nothing new. Watching films outdoors from a punt in a swimming pool? Don't let anyone say that the Cambridge Film Festival isn't inventive when it comes to finding new ways of experiencing cinema.
Sunday saw the Cambridge Film Festival take over the Jesus Green Lido in Cambridge. Here's another set of pictures that proves that my cameras can see better in the dark than I can…

Thanks to everyone who came along to my first talk at the Apple Store on Regent St, London last night - it was great to have such a large and enthusiastic audience.
Thanks also to Apple for inviting me to speak there, and specifically to Robin, Darren and Cambria for all of your help in organising everything and making me feel so welcome.
The next course that I'm running is taking place in Cambridge on Monday 8 November. If you'd like to find out more about it, please read the original blog post.
Thanks also to the always wonderful Helen Bartlett for taking a few pictures of the event.

Following on from last week's appearance on the Apple website, MacWorld have just run an interview that I did for them earlier this year. In it, they ask why I started out my career as a professional wedding photographer, my approach to photographing weddings, and the importance of Macs in my post-production work.
You can find the interview here.
On the subject of post-production, there's still a few places left for the intensive one-day course that I'm running in Cambridge in November. You can find out more about it here.

Not that I'm excited about it or anything, but this is a quick reminder that I'm giving a talk at Apple's Regent St store in London next week.
Running a photography business on a Mac
Apple's Regent St Store, London, Monday 13 September, 19:00-21:00
Apple have invited me to speak at their flagship store on Regent St which, considering that I've been a Mac user since I was 12, is very exciting. I'll be talking about the fundamentals of setting up a wedding photography business and running it from your Mac, and there'll be plenty of time for questions if there's anything else you want to ask me about.
The seminar is free and there's no need to pre-register, but space is limited so please turn up early if you want to make sure you get a seat.
I'm also doing a full day post-production course here in Cambridge in November, which you can find out more about here.

Elena & David got married at the lovely Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge and held their wedding reception at Trinity Hall. Both are among the prettiest of the Cambridge colleges, and conveniently only about ten metres apart!
They got married in a wedding ceremony in Gonville & Caius College chapel that included both Anglican and Greek Orthodox parts. Elena & David's was my first Greek Orthodox wedding, adding to the long list of firsts I've had at this year's weddings!
Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from Elena & David's wedding.
