It's always good to see new business coming to Wellingborough...


...so I was delighted to be commissioned to photograph the opening of a Dominos Pizza store in London Road recently. Mr Chaudhry and his team had taken a until in the new retail park and were very proud of this new store...although the day was a bit damp and dreary, the store looked great with red and blue balloons and brand new pizza ovens

Always carry a camera....


..is the advice often given to novice photographers, but it really is GOOD advice and one which I always follow! I was on a short break,in a lovely place called Instow in North Devon, recently and as usual I had taken my cameras with the intention to get some new stock photographs for my library on Alamy (www.alamy.com). The forecast was good and I know the estuary of the Torridge and Taw rivers very well as I've been visiting regularly for over 20 years...in fact I first visited Instow in the late 1970s when the place was still very quiet even at weekends

Walking along the beach I approached the beautiful sand dunes and could hear the sound of music! Sitting on the crest of [...]

Family Photography is important...


...for all of the reasons that I often write about, but I recently photographed a lovely family for whom the need for a family group portrait was very poignant, The family's much loved grandfather was seriously ill and they wanted to capture those precious memories for ever....and,in my opinion,no matter how many smart phone pictures you have nothing compares to a beautifully printed and framed high quality photographic print

The family comprised 7 members, from a baby boy through to granddad, and I was delighted to be asked to capture several portraits of the old man, who was charming and kind and who clearly loved his great grandson. Sometimes the emotions of a shoot like this are very tangible and at the subsequent viewing many [...]

I love it when clients return....

...for another shoot. It tells me that they were not only pleased with their first photo session, but they liked it so much they want more and trust me to deliver the quality photography that they want

I photographed little Holly around Mother's Day last year as a thoughtful present from her dad to his wife and mother, so I was especially delighted to see them back to book another shoot in the same location. Holly had changed a lot i the last 12 months and it is lovely to see a child's personality beginning to develop from the toddler that they were. We had a sunny walk around the stunning Abington Park in Northampton...lots of different areas to capture a little girl and her [...]

Actors and writers...


...are always interesting people to photograph and a recent sitting with author Mike Richards proved to be no exception. Mike has written several books and been involved with film making , so I was flattered to be trusted to produce a set of headshots to be used in publicity materials and for banners and posters at various literary festivals around the country

Photographing adults is a much more demanding job than shooting children...kids are generally without self consciousness and therefore it's relatively easy to capture their various changing emotions during the course of a photoshoot. Adults,particularly creative people, often have quite fixed views of how they wish to present themselves...which may not always suit the real person inside. When photographing Mike we spent quite a [...]
