Dalston Wedding Photography

Dalston Wedding Photography and the Case of the Missing Blogs So this is the first time I’ve blogged this year.  Which  would be slightly remiss of me in say, March, but it’s the middle of August.  I have no excuse for this.  Well, actually that’s not true.  I have a …

What Does Alternative Wedding Photography Mean?

What Does Alternative Wedding Photography Mean? So this may look like I’m about to have a go at alternative wedding photography, or alternative wedding photographers.  But I’m not.  I promise.  What I’m more interested in asking, as I kick about on a Sunday afternoon, is What Does Alternative Anything Even Mean?  Can …

BRAZILIAN CARNIVAL CLUB PHOTOGRAPHY

BRAZILIAN CARNIVAL CLUB PHOTOGRAPHY So let me first start by saying it’s not all that easy to get candid shots in a Brazilian nightclub. Brazilian girls seem to have developed extraordinary powers of precognition, and seem to know where the camera is at all times–sometimes before you do–and have an almost …

BEST OF 2016 – Weddings, Portraits and Fashion

BEST OF 2016 I’m not sure I have the energy to sum up 2016.  Luckily the photos are doing to do that for me.  All I’ll say is being a photographer is a beautifully random thing.  I’ve photographed everything from secret weddings to family shoots to fashion to Little Mix …

Punchdrunk Theatre Wedding

I’m revisiting this wedding A) because it’s a Punchdrunk Theatre Wedding and, five years on, it’s still one of the most extraordinary weddings I’ve ever shot and B) more technically, I’ve just written some words for Rangefinder magazine extolling the virtues of flash — and this was shot without any …

The Ritz Wedding Photography

The Ritz Wedding Photography Sometimes people, places and things are just too ridiculously photogenic for their own good.  This wedding is one of them.  The day started in a high-windowed, well appointed flat near Kensington Gardens, moved to Lincoln’s Inn Chapel tucked away behind the Strand and beside the law courts …

Immodesty Blaize Wedding

I first happened across Immodesty Blaize when she was performing in a hot and sweaty, smoke filled Cobden Club in London some ten years ago — back when clubs were still smokey and you watched the acts through a soft fuggy haze.  This was the height of The Whoopee Club, …

Friday Photo: The Cat Has My Worry Beads

Friday Photo So here then is another one of those storytelling photos.  What I really love about the right photo is the immaculate clutter.  It’s not messy, but it’s not tidy either.  A place for everything, and everything in its place–it’s just that those places are random and held there …

Friday Photo: Paint It Black

Friday Photo: Paint It Black So why are so many wedding photographers afraid of the dark?  I just did a google image search for ‘wedding photography’ and after my eyes stopped bleeding long enough to take it all in I was confronted with an endless sea of soft greenery, golden …
