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.

Cambridge University Press calendar

Posted in Commercial and PR at 15:02 on 21/10/2008

Earlier this year, I had the honour of being asked to produce a set of images for the Cambridge University Press corporate calendar. The calendar is an important promotional tool for the Press and is distributed globally by the company's various international offices.

In contrast to their previous calendars, my images steer clear of the more common views of Cambridge. Instead of concentrating on views that have appeared on innumerable postcards and calendars, I decide to focus on the details that often go unnoticed by both visitors and tourists alike.

Flatteringly, the 2009 calendar is going to be the first of the Press' corporate calendars to be offered for sale to the general public. It will soon be available from the Cambridge University Press bookshop and I'll be sure to post more details on here as soon as I have them.

In the meantime, here are a few pages taken from the calendar.







Wedding photography seminars update

Posted in Seminars at 19:26 on 13/10/2008

My wedding photography seminars are coming up in a couple of weeks' time, so I thought it was time for a quick update.

Hosted by Calumet, the course is aimed at people who are either thinking of becoming professional wedding photographers or those that have recently set up their business and want to know how to turn it into a full-time career. Over the course of three weeks in October and November, I'll be touring the country and giving a one-day seminar at seven of Calumet's stores.

The London and Belfast dates have nearly sold out, but there's a few tickets left for them and more available for the other dates.

The aim of the seminar is to fill in the important gaps left by many introductory courses. While many photography courses aim to teach you how to take great pictures, they don't tell you how to establish a successful business or deal with the workload that comes with it. What I'll be doing is using my experience of building up a business alongside another job before becoming a full-time photographer to give you a guide that can help you to do the same.

I'll be discussing ways of making a start in the wedding photography market, establishing a business that can be built up alongside another job and then making the transition to life as a full-time photographer. I'll also teach you how to set up a workflow that can be adapted as your business progresses, allowing you to keep on top of your deadlines and ensure that a growing business doesn't create problems for you.

Each seminar runs from 10:00 to 16:00. The seminar dates and locations are:

Tuesday 28 October: Belfast

Wednesday 29 October: Manchester

Tuesday 4 November: London (Drummond St store)

Wednesday 5 November: Nottingham

Thursday 6 November: Liverpool

Tuesday 11 November: Bristol

Thursday 13 November: Birmingham

Tickets are priced at £75 inc VAT. Follow the link on each location to buy tickets.

Louise & Paul's wedding in Norfolk

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:08 on 02/10/2008

Louise & Paul got married at Louise's home village of Colkirk in Norfolk. It was a day filled with personal touches, from the village hall filled with flowers to the dove release after the ceremony. Here's a selection of my favourite pictures from the day:
