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.

Kitley House Hotel weddings in Devon

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 28/09/2011

Two years ago, I travelled all the way from Cambridge down to Yealmpton in Devon to photograph Corinne & Matthew's wedding at Kitley House Hotel. Two years later, I was back to photograph Elle & Jonny's wedding there.

Here's a selection of my favourite photos from Elle & Jonny's wedding at Kitley House Hotel in Devon.

Closing weekend of the 2011 Cambridge Film Festival

Posted in Commercial and PR at 15:24 on 27/09/2011

The 2011 Cambridge Film Festival drew to a close at the weekend, and now I've a chance to recover from 11 busy days of events, special guests and phenomenally anti-social hours I can post some pictures!

Let's start with Saturday evening's big event - Paddy Considine visiting Cambridge to present his directorial debut, Tyrannosaur. I've already posted my favourite portrait from that evening, but I like it enough to post it again right now:

On Friday, we played host to Denis Dercourt, who was visiting to present his new film Tomorrow At Dawn. I'm useless at remembering movie facts (or any other kind of trivia) so I wish I'd looked Denis up before I met him - he directed the brilliant The Page Turner and those who've seen it will know what I'm getting at when I say that I wish I could have found a piano (or, even scarier, a cello) for him to pose with:

The Cambridge Arts Picturehouse is staffed by many lovely people, but if you take the time to get to know them you'll discover that they're all frighteningly talented as well as being great company. Project Trident is a collective of Picturehouse staff who make films in their spare time, and this year's Tridentfest was the third annual show of their work. Here are some of the Project Trident team talking about their work:

Paddy Considine portrait

I'll post more pictures from the closing weekend of the 2011 Cambridge Film Festival soon, but here's a quick preview for you. Paddy Considine is visiting Cambridge for the UK premier of his debut feature as a director, Tyrannosaur. He'll be staying for a Q&A session after the film, but he was kind enough to pose for a quick portrait before the screening. Without further ado, here he is...

Day seven of the 2011 Cambridge Film Festival

Posted in Commercial and PR at 11:55 on 23/09/2011

I'm getting a bit behind on my blogging from the 2011 Cambridge Film Festival, and I'm going to blame that on the hectic schedule of events and guests arriving at the festival. Here's a roundup of the highlights of day seven of the festival (aka Wednesday).

If we're keeping score by the number of filmmakers and actors who come to the festival to support their film, Dimensions wins by a long way with 10 actors joining writer/director partners Ant Neely and Sloane U'Ren. Let's do a roll-call, starting with Sloane & Ant:

Also at the top of the bill for Wednesday was Page One, which was brought to Cambridge by director Andrew Rossi and New York Times journalist David Carr. They were joined by the multi-talented Professor John Naughton for the post-screening discussion:
