Friday Photo: This is England

Friday Photo So after what feels like almost a year–mostly because it is almost a year here is the return of Friday Photo.  On a Wednesday.  But you know, it is a photo.  And it’s a photo of the Father of the Bride.  I’ve put this photo up on Instagram …

Wilton’s Music Hall Wedding

Wilton’s Music Hall Wedding Well so much for my plans to restart the weekly wedding blog.  This blog, the keen-eyed observers among you will have noticed, is not exactly hot on the heels of the last one.  I’d like to say this is because I’m a feckless dandy who’s been …

Bambi Blue – Barracuda Girl

Katey Scott aka Bambi Blue – Barracuda Girl video shoot So hot on the back of posting my first wedding blog of the year last week, here is my first burlesque blog in about four years.  To be fair that’s partly because I haven’t shot any burlesque in the past …

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?

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 …

RANGEFINDERS 30 RISING STARS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

So apparently I am one of RANGEFINDERS 30 RISING STARS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY, 2016 Yeah.  So that happened.  And it turns out being voted one of the top 30 wedding photographers in the world feels kind of nice. In fact if you want to know how I’m feeling right now put on Aretha …

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 …
