I’ve never been out of the country entirely by myself before - I feel fortunate to have been on some great family holidays, also with friends, groups and boyfriends. But never solo. I turn 30 this year, so now, for me feels like the right time to be doing this, breaking away from the every day, having a small journey by myself and coming back home with fresh eyes and new experiences. They say a change is as good as a break. It was nice to shake things up a bit. Street photogr
I've just been transported through looking back at my personal photos, so much so that I've dedicated a small section on my website to them.
I am so glad I took them.
Even when I considered having a ‘day off’, I still took my camera (often my 35mm Minolta film camera). What I have now, is a visual record of places I’ve been, trips I’ve taken, parties I’ve been to. Even when there was nothing to document - just that was still worth documenting. What could have easily been
During our initial meeting, Lisa and Steve explained to me that they were after some really relaxed, candid photography on their wedding day and weren't too keen on any formal, posed photographs. After hearing this, I knew we'd be a good fit and I felt confident that I would be able to use my soft, documentary approach to its fullest. On the day of the wedding, I met Lisa in one of The Ardens hotel rooms, whereby I was greeted by a merry bridal party, all whizzing around with
We can't get enough of this family. My boyfriend Alistair has known Mike Worthington from childhood. Since then he has produced two beautiful children and is married to the wonderful Charlene. Maximus, their son, has the most infectious smile and has a great enthusiam for anything motor/animal related. He is also really enthusiastic about his little sister Chloe too, who has the best eyes and newborn back-chub I've ever seen. Despite the fact that I want Chloe and Maximus to
I love second shooting weddings for many reasons, but the main one is that I get to have fun, capturing details without the sole responsibility of wedding photography on my shoulders. Second shooting for those of you that aren't 'tog boffins is shooting as support for the main photographer - who in this case was John Charlton. This blog post is about the inbetweeners (often my favourite shots, even when its my own wedding). The shots between the shots. They are so great becau
Ah man this shoot was fun! The Hill family are just so lovely and super happy to have the experience of my Specialist Portraiture Package. Mom Jo was so excited when she found out she was the winner of my Specialist Portraiture package - ran in conjunction with Undiagnosed Day 2015. Her son is a member of SWAN (Sydromes Without A Name) and so they regularly attend the SWAN meet-ups as a family. He is so cool, so energetic and a real comedian. Mom Jo said about the shoot: "OMG
Dumbleton Hall is pretty spectactular and what better place to have a traditional white wedding for Paul and Kelly. I was employed by Workhorse Weddings to shoot their big day and it was such a pleasure. Seeing how in love Paul and Kelly were bought everything together - Kelly was one excited bride! There was lots of love, friendship and laughter all around which made photographing for a few hours them all the more fun. Here's to your future Paul and Kelly! #relaxedphotograph
London can easily swallow you up. Even after years, the average Londoner is still very aware that his or her lifestyle, exciting as it is, comes at a price they eventually question its sustainability. Something that gets me every time I visit, is the incredible rate of consumption my friends go through day-to-day.
