Here's an image from a few weeks ago. Nish and Prina were married in July.  Actually on several days in July - I covered 3 days of their wedding with a couple of associate photographers.  The last day was all mine - 800 guests, a massive sports hall, a huge mandap

Not all of my work is weddings.  And not all of it is people.  This week I've been doing a lot of commercial work and also shooting comp cards for a modelling agency.  All a lot of fun, but I don't think you want to see empty industrial buildings and

It was an August Bank Holiday.  But not like any other. A quick couple of days away in Brighton sounds normal enough.  But in the entire 3 days, I didn't encounter any traffic jams at all.  No bank holiday snarlups at all.  And it didn't even rain - well only for

So I'm back from Peru. Over the last 3 weeks I've been sweltering in a tropical rainforest complete with the biggest spiders I've ever seen, relaxing on a city break in Cusco, climbing a couple of mountains on the Salkantay Trail and touring Maccu Picchu. I'm back now - and normal service will

One more from the recent Madeline Isaac-James 2012 collection shoot. This is a dress called "Miranda".  My Latin teacher would be very proud of me for remembering that means "she who is to be admired". This was shot quite late in the day and very fast - by this time we were

Here's one from a couple of weeks ago.  An estate agency asked me to take some pictures of  their properties in Docklands.  They also wanted some iconic shots of well known building and features of the area. "Great - like the Millennium Dome," I said.  "Err, you mean the O2?". Suddenly I

Here's one I like to call "making the best out your surroundings". If you're going to have 800 people at your wedding, you're going to need a pretty big room.  And rooms that big in London are few and far between.  We were actually in Tolworth Recreation Centre.  Ordinarily, this isn't

A couple of years ago, if somebody had told me I would get excited about wedding dresses, I would have laughed at them.  But 2 years on, after several designers have asked me to photograph their new collections for them it's getting to be a lot of fun. Take this dress

This is a detail from Nish and Prina's wedding at the weekend. It's a very simple shot - available light with a shallow depth of field from a macro lens.  But for me it's a very important shot for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I take a lot of pictures of hands.

Weddings are my favourite thing - the joy, the emotion, the people, the details, the adrenaline.... But bridal fashion is a very close second.  Especially when it is shooting for the amazing Madeline Isaac-James.  I photographed her entire 2011 collection last year and yesterday I got a sneak preview of the
