Occasionally a job comes along that makes me nervous. I don't do heights, I'm not good on ladders; so why did I agree to climbing up onto a small wooden platform, less than a metre square, on top of a glorified telegraph pole... to take engagement photos of two fearless... Continue reading

Weddings can be difficult to photograph at the best of times, but when it's your own daughter getting married... it's a whole new ball game. Torn between playing the role of photographer or father, this was probably the most difficult wedding I've photographed. The emotion of seeing your little girl... Continue reading

In less than three weeks from now, will be walking down the aisle with my daughter at her wedding. Doubtless I will be feeling an element of stress at that moment, although not necessarily for the reasons you might expect (with the possible exception of the constant thought that later...

After over a year of deliberating, I finally made the decision to buy the Fuji X100. This camera has been a game-changer in the photography world, combining gorgeous retro-looks with cutting edge technology and stunning quality images - especially in low light. I'm really looking forward to putting it through... Continue reading

Thanks Dave. Yes, is was hysterical at times... but that's how I like all my shoots to go. It relaxes people and they perform better in front of the lens. End result, better photos.

Taking pre-wedding photos of any couple is a priviledge, but it is especially so when it's your own daughter and future son-in-law in the frame. Sally and Russ live on the south coast, and despite the wettest summer in living memory we managed to find a few hours of sunshine... Continue reading

I had so much fun with this image. Becky used to play rugby for a girl's team while at school and when we asked her to model this shot for us there were no problems... except she no longer had any rugby kit to wear (apart from boots, which we... Continue reading

I'm running this half-day workshop in April for anyone who has a camera (point & shoot or DSLR or anything in between) and wants to simply take better photographs. I meet a lot of people who, despite having some very sophisticated technology in their cameras, still seem to struggle to... Continue reading

This weekend I photographed Hayley. The brief was to take a traditional beauty image with uncomplicated, smooth lines. This was the image I was looking for, and I'm delighted with the results. Hayley's stunning looks help make a good shot look sensational. To acheive the look, we first of all... Continue reading

Today I spent nearly seven hours with my new assisants Leigh, Loren and Heather. It was our first training day, with over two hours in the morning going through the equipment - and the rest of the day working in the studio and outside on the streets of Purley. The... Continue reading

I was up in London for a few hours this afternoon helping a young photographer get to grips with her camera. We passed by the Anti-Capiltalsm protest outside St Paul's Cathedral and just had to grab the opportunity for a few shots. We found it remarkably clean and quite a... Continue reading

Never had you down as a rocker Dave! Thanks for your comments. Hope you have a restful time over the next week (although I guess Christmas Day will be a busy one for you).

Last weekend I was invited to photograph a Ruby Wedding anniversary for Tony & Carole Latham. They had booked one of their favourite hotels in Berkshire, the Ramada Jarvis at Elcot Park. My brief was to capture the evening on camera, to document everything that went on, no posed shots... Continue reading

Having just got back from seven days braving the weather in the highlands of Scotland (a good 550 miles from our home in Surrey) I look back over the photos. Some documented the time we spent with our friends Richard and Liz, some recorded the local wildlife and others were... Continue reading

I was asked to take some photographs of four different churches this morning. Croydon Churches are staging a big worship event at Crystal Palace football stadium and a video is being put together (by Owen Kingston) with a montage of stills showing the variety of churches within the borough.
