Friday Photo: Art, Awkwardness and Enigma

Friday Photo: Art, Awkwardness and Enigma So the big one: What is art?  I already feel bogged down just asking that.  I can feel hackles being raised and I can sense shoulders being slumped.  Because you could argue that art is anything a group ascribes the term art to, if …

London Wedding Photographer MC Motors

London Wedding Photographer MC Motors So I should probably tell you up front that this wedding is a year old — in fact, Gemma and Lewis have already Facebooked their anniversary — but the only reason that I haven’t posted before now was that this wedding got so much social …

Friday Photo: Up Close and Personal

Friday Photo: Up Close and Personal Robert Capa said, “If your pictures aren’t good enough you aren’t close enough.”  But then Robert Capa also said a lot of dumb macho things that he’s not remembered for, and then he got blown up.  Still, it’s always a good line to trot out …

London Wedding Photographer

London Wedding Photographer – Fliss and Jon at Shakespeare’s Globe Okay, so this is the wedding between the utterly charming and delightful Fliss Walton and the equally charming and winningly louche Jon Edgley Bond.  Fliss and I go way back, bonding over the perils of drinking slightly-below-par tea from a twice …

Friday Photo: Girl in a Box / Film

Okay so I haven’t posted this year and I probably should.  I mean it’s May for FFS.  So in keeping with my go-slow web presence I thought I’d post about go-slow photography.  Otherwise called, shooting on film.  Now I don’t subscribe to the idea that with the proliferation of cameras …

Friday Photo: Less is More

Friday Photo: Less is More So the first Friday Photo of 2016 kicks off (do you see what I did there?) with ‘Less is More.’  It’s a simple effective maxim for any kind of storytelling really.  Okay, the keen-eyed among you will have noticed that sometimes my photos have a  hell …

2015 A Year In Review

2015 A Year In Review You know it’s actually quite daunting when you look back at all the weddings you did the year before.  All the places you went, all the photos you took.  Most wedding photographers are absolutely done in by the end of the year.  Banjaxed, boondoggled, discombobulated and …

New Years Eve Wedding Photography

New Years Eve Wedding Photography So it’s possible I may have overdone playing the long-game in terms of choosing to hold on to this wedding until today.  I could have blogged this wedding any time in the last year.  But I thought, no, I’ll be obtuse.  I’ll wait.  I’ll post …
