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.

2013 Cambridge Film Festival round up

Posted in Commercial and PR at 13:09 on 01/10/2013

This year's Cambridge Film Festival is the ninth that I've photographed, and it's great to have been invited back to photograph it for every festival since 2005. Last week, I posted some pictures from the Stephen Hawking documentary that opened the festival, but I've been a bit slack about blogging my work during the festival itself this year. Instead, I've been posting pictures regularly to my Twitter stream, but now it's time for a round-up of the highlights from the 2013 Cambridge Film Festival!

Most of my work at the Cambridge Film Festival is focussed on photographing the various filmmakers and other guests who come to Cambridge to present their films, but I'm going to start my round-up of the festival with something a bit different: a set of pictures of the people who make the festival possible, the staff and volunteers who run it. Whether they're working behind the scenes, front of house or hosting Q&A sessions with filmmakers, they're a vital part of the festival a big part of the spirit of the festival that makes me come back every year.

And now onto the events themselves! The reliably brilliant Neil Brand took a break from his busy schedule of BBC programmes to provide a live soundtrack to Nosferatu as well as a programme of silent movies for the younger members of the festival audience.

This is already threatening to become a titanic blog post, so I'm going to rattle through the rest of these highlights very quickly!
