Restored photographs....


...are wonderful time capsules, just ready to be opened and enjoyed all over again. When John brought an old Polaroid instant print in to me, it was obvious from the clothes which era it had been taken in! The guys were in flares with long hair and beards, while the girls were looking lovely in Biba style outfits...and to complete the look there was an old VW Beetle in shot! it could have been taken at Woodstock in 1969....

The print was in a pretty poor condition with a large crease across one face and much peeling and damage to the emulsion...and it was only about 3x2" in size. Major restoration work was needed and the power of digital technology makes it a lot simpler [...]

Jura...not only a very fine whisky...


...but a very handsome dog! I had the pleasure of photographing Jura and Lexi, two beautiful Labradors, in the studio recently and what a great photo shoot it was. Some dogs can feel a little "trapped" in a studio, so I also love taking canine photographs outdoors, but Jura and Lexi were stars, even though Lexi was a bit under the weather; they both behaved impeccably and their owner, Kay, clearly loves them to bits....just one mention of "Petit Filou" and she had their immediate unwavering attention!

Jura goes shooting regularly so I wanted to capture his look of intense concentration, as if waiting on a command, whilst Lexi was more laid back in her style....

Kay chose a stunning Dark Oak frame and double [...]

You've been framed...


..used to be a popular TV show some years ago, but it's very important to me as a photographer in Wellingborough! It means that I have finished the work for my customers and they can take their beautiful photographs home and ready to hang on their wall.

All artists believe that we we produce is wonderful (!), but a print or canvas alone is unfinished and lacks the finishing touches which will truly set it off in your home. Which is why I offer a bespoke framing service with all my photoshoots - I have literally hundreds of framing options from simple black or white through to ornate heavily gilded masterpiece style frames for those classic family photographs that I love making for my customers.

I love it....


...when old customers come back to see me...especially when they bring a challenging job my way! I had photographed Lesley Day's two grown up children a few years ago when they came in for a photo session to provide a birthday present for mum, so it was really nice to see them back in the studio in Nene Court. Lesley brought with her a framed print from her wedding ...I won;t say how many years ago....but it was severely faded and framed in an ornate gilt frame. On first sight it looked like a canvas print but after I dismantled the frame to scan the original I discovered it was in fact a photographic paper print with a "canvas" texture overlay which was then all [...]

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
