This Is My Blog

recent work

If you're interested in having a look at my most recent work then this is the place to find it. There's lots to look at, mostly weddings but also some pre-wed portrait shoots and a few random personal blog posts as well.

Please feel free to have a good rummage around and if you like what you see and would be interested in talking to me about photographing your wedding then I'd love to hear from you. You can reach me via my contact page.

Further Adventures Of Documenting My Family

 Sun | Sun | Sun


This is the next instalment of my continual struggle to try and take more pictures of my family.

Still struggling.

I’m genuinely not quite sure of why I seem to have this inability to take more pictures of my kids and my family.  I’ve even bought a new camera (a Fuji X100s for any camera geeks out there) with the idea that is would be smaller and easier to carry round.  It is indeed smaller but I still don’t really carry it around much.

I think perhaps the only slightly meaningful rationale to explain why I might not be taking as many pictures of my family as I’d like is that I’m used to photographically documenting moments, events, relationships etc.  Intrinsic to the documentary process is that I’m relatively objective to what I’m capturing.  I obviously can’t be objective when photographing my family and here in lies where I’m struggling.  I want natural, relaxed, observed pictures of my kids…. but with Dad being behind the camera this is mighty hard to achieve.

But I do try.

Here are some of my attempts from a recent holiday in Cornwall (I love Cornwall – genuinely nowhere I’d rather be when the sun is shining).
