Who would have thought...
24th February 2017
...I would be wishing for less sunshine the day after Storm Doris! Only from a photographic perspective of course.

This shoot was postponed from last year due to rider injury, so it was great for us to be able to go ahead with it before the start of the endurance season.

This is one of my favourites of Katie Bedwin and her stunning Arab mare Layla, who is training hard towards her first 100km race of the year.

Actor head shots
23rd February 2017
I do find creating actor head shots one of the most enjoyable genres of photography. Changing clothes, hair, backgrounds and expressions make for completely different looks.

Please do get in touch if you would like a similar set of images as in Louise Newman's video.

Student discounts available.

London Life

The sights of London never cease to amaze me. I snapped this image on my iPhone last Friday in one of the most exclusive parts of London, a couple of minutes from Harrods. British eccentricity at its best...

I would like to wish all my clients and followers a Happy New Year. It has been great reflecting on 2016 and thank you for all your support. Every like and comment means a lot. I look forward to creating many more special memories in 2017.

Here is my favourite one from a memorable Christmas spent at Penny Bigwood's Pendragon House in Bude, Cornwall. What a dream location!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Harry

My last shoot of the year and what a wonderful one to finish on. This little chap is without a doubt the happiest baby I've ever come across. I smiled all through the editing process.

Personal project
09th November 2016
I've been meaning to create some images for some frames I've had in my house for ages.

My home is full of handed-down, pre-loved furniture and ornaments, so I wanted something that had an aged feel. As I love the charm of old photographic plates and my ancient orchid happened to be flowering, I decided to use this as my subject with my lens wide open at f1.6.

As a perfectionist who aspires to producing sharp images with the best dynamic range my equipment can achieve, it goes against the grain in many ways to work towards achieving something that is "soft" and is technically perceived as imperfect these days, but that was my aim. With a little help from Photoshop, it's all come together.

Printed on fine art paper, they look just as I hoped they would.

Finally...

The beauty of nature
08th November 2016
A tortoiseshell butterfly has decided to hibernate in my house, which gave me the perfect opportunity to photograph this exquisite creature.

I had no idea they were so furry!

Happy client

A bit of rim lighting

I'm such a sucker for a bit of rim lighting...

Different challenges
25th October 2016
Photographing products is a whole different ball game to horses. There may be no need to get any ears pricked, but it presents its own challenges, especially glass.

Here are some product shots I produced for Pollyfields's Christmas range.

I'm not normally a fan of smellies of any kind, but I have to say, these are gorgeous. The reed diffuser gave the house a hint of Christmas without being overpowering.

Wonderful day learning how top theatre photographer Michael Wharley mixes natural and artificial light to produce his award-winning head shots and creates interesting backgrounds in the studio and out on the street.
