What I did on my holidays….

I get asked some variant of this all the time.  "What do you do on your day off?"  "Do you still take pictures for fun?"  "Do you carry a camera with you everywhere?". And of course the answers are "lots of things, yes and....no". But I did take a camera with me

I know I put some previews of Abi and Adi's wedding in Chilham on the site a week or so ago.  I'm just putting the finishing touches to their images now and this one just popped up on my screen. The happy couple are now back in the summer weather of

Remember Annabelle?  Hard to believe it's the best part o a year since I photographed her. Even harder to believe how much she's grown since then! She's just as cute as ever - but now she can hardly stay still for 2 minutes. She loves playing in the garden.  But some times....she just

Tough job being a fashion model.  This is actually a fairly typical behind the scenes shot for me.  Naomi is modelling the entire House of Nicholas 2012 collection in a single day.  Emma (camera right) is touching up her makeup while Marina is putting finishing touches to her hair.  In

I'm by no means a macro photographer.  But sometimes you just can't help yourself. I had a macro lens and a couple of flashguns handy and these leafcutter ants on the floor of a Peruvian rainforest made perfect practise subjects.  After all there were millions of them - literally. But I knew

This is a room that strikes fear into the heart of any Kent wedding photographer.  It's the diorama at Quex Park.  Aka "the wet weather plan for group pictures".  Aka "one of the hardest rooms to take pictures in anywhere in Kent". Every time I've worked at Quex Park it has

Ever get one of "those" emails?  As often it came from Nicola at ProposePR. I have a client who needs some high quality images of their product for press and PR use... Sure that shouldn't be a problem.  What's the product? A brand new kind of confetti made of only rice... So small colourful

Summer holidays and cold winter nights seem to have something in common.....I'm always busy taking pictures of babies in April and October. If anything, October is even more fun than April because with colour in the trees and gorgeous light we can go outside with slightly older children.  Of course we

Something a little different this week.  I've been doing a lot of commercial photography lately for businesses around Kent.  A lot of it is confidential to the clients (in fact some of it's so secret I can't even tell you where I was).  But I'm delighted to be able to

Meet Mikel. Mikel was our model for my monthly lighting workshop which I hold on behalf of Lencarta.  Every month we take over a hotel conference room, hire a model and I teach a bunch of delegates how to use the boot load of lighting I bring with me. For example, this
