When you're shooting fashion, even the outtakes can be fun. I was photographing a cover for Wedding Ideas Magazine in their rather lovely new office and Kelly from Tantrums and Tiaras was there to style the shoot and provide tiaras and headgear. I'd just finished rigging the lights when Kelly tried on

This weekend I had a few friends visit me in Canterbury.  They are all keen amateur photographers so dragged heavy cameras, lenses and tripods all over town.  I can carry too much gear with the best of them but this was my day off and I was in my home

Here's an image I've been dying to share for ages.  It's from the Madeline Isaac-James 2011 collection and I took it way back in April.  The collection has been under close guard since then ready for its public launch at the British Bridal Exhibition in September.  A few image are

Really, I've been dying to share this shot from Mark and Louise's wedding with you since before I even took it. We were chatting away and I asked if they had any extra special details they wanted to be sure were captured.  "Oh yes, the cake", they both said, "it's, err,

I had an email from Claire who had seen some of my crazy Trash the Dress work.  She wanted a bridal shoot with her husband Jonathan but really didn't want to ruin her dress.  No problem, I can do that.  Dresses very rarely get ruined when I do a Rock

A Bank Holiday and a day off!  So I went down to Lydden Hill for the BHP Performance Show.  A heady mix of "run what you brung", demonstration drives and huge traffic jams. But my favourite is the drifting. When a couple of high powered performance cars are sliding sideways at you

Snails in Kent - or Escargots if you want to be posh. Seriously, how rock and roll is the life of a social and fashion photographer?  Last week I was photographing beautiful jewelery in beautiful surroundings, this week it was snails in a lovely house in kent.  Slightly out of my

Available light is very much the "in" thing in wedding photography.  So it comes as a surprise to some people when I tell them that I routinely pack 6 flashguns for a wedding.  Including some fairly powerful location flash.  It possibly comes as even more of a surprise when and

The Reading Room at the British Museum

March 23, 2010  |  Photoblog  |  No Comments

The Reading Room is a rare treat - a building that could have been purpose designed for photographers. Sweeping curves, huge softlight window at the top and lovely honey coloured stone. All you need is for somebody to walk obligingly into the shot to complete it. Sometimes taking pictures is pretty easy.
