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.

Professor Stephen Hawking at the Cambridge Film Festival

Posted in Commercial and PR at 10:55 on 21/09/2013

I'm back in Cambridge for the Cambridge Film Festival, which opened in spectacular style with the premiere of Hawking, a feature-length documentary about the life of Professor Stephen Hawking. With all of Professor Hawking's close links to Cambridge, it was a huge event that took over all three screens of the Arts Picturehouse. Additionally, the Q&A hosted by Krishnan Guru-Murthy after the film was broadcast via satellite link to dozens of other cinemas around the country.

Here's a selection of my pictures from the event, starting with a portrait of Professor Stephen Hawking and then a cheeky self-portrait…

Christ's College Cambridge weddings: Janice & MIchael

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:00 on 13/09/2013

I've been lucky enough to be booked to photograph weddings at Christ's College in Cambridge for the last several years, and it's always a pleasure to return. The college is full of beautiful sandstone architecture, and the Fellows' Gardens with their wonderful old trees make for a great location for a drinks reception.

Janice & Michael got married at Our Lady and the English Martyrs - Cambridge's largest Catholic church - before heading over to Christ's College for their wedding reception. Their wedding ceremony fitted the grand venue perfectly, with plenty of special moments for me to capture as well as wonderful music that I'll have to leave to your imagination. Here's a selection of my favourite images from Janice & Michael's wedding ceremony, and I'll follow them up with a set of pictures from their wedding reception at Christ's College.

Weddings at Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:00 on 30/08/2013

It's been a while since I've photographed a wedding at Our Lady and the English Martyrs, the large Catholic church right in the centre of Cambridge. It's a wonderful church, with spectacular architecture and light, so I was delighted when Janice & Michael asked me to photograph their wedding there.

I'll be posting more pictures from Janice & Michael's wedding at Our Lady and the English Martyrs next week, but here's one of my favourite pictures from their wedding ceremony. After exchanging vows, the bridal party promenaded around the church while singing a hymn, and this lovely moment between the bride and groom was captured right at the end of that.

Suffolk weddings: Ali & Matt's wedding at Yaxley Hall

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:00 on 16/08/2013

Yaxley Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues, so it was a pleasure to return there for Ali & Matt's Suffolk wedding. Yaxley Hall features a great combination of a lovely building (decorated with spectacularly good paintings), charming service and a great atmosphere.

Ali & her bridesmaids got ready at Yaxley Hall, before taking a vintage VW camper van along the Suffolk roads to the wedding ceremony at the church in Yaxley village itself. Ali & Matt's wedding was a bit larger than the other weddings I've photographed at Yaxley Hall, so they made use of the marquee in the grounds as well as the hall itself.

Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from Ali & Matt's Suffolk wedding at Yaxley Hall.

Photographing wedding speeches: Ali & Matt's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 10:00 on 09/08/2013

I'll be posting more pictures from Ali & Matt's wedding at the wonderful Yaxley Hall next week, but here's one shot that caught my eye. Photographing the speeches is one of the highlights of the wedding day for me, because there's so much scope for great shots of both the action and guests' reactions to the speeches. I like this particular shot of Matt's speech because it catches both in one picture, as well as acting as a scene-setting shot for the rest of his speech.
