Wonderful Winter Wedding in Suffolk

I’m delighted to share some further images from the lovely wedding of Gary & Tina, held at the stunning Woodhall Manor, near Woodbridge.

An intimate winter wedding was something I’ve never had the pleasure of photographing, but WOW, what an idea… everything just seemed to work – although the light disappears quickly, it does bring other options to the table (eg, sparkler /night images) and thankfully we were blessed with some lovely light and dry weather.

Wishing you much happiness Tina & Gary x

In Sunny Lowestoft with Access Community

I was recently back in sunny (well, it was damp & cloudy actually… in fact the amazing backdrops made it feel sunny!) Lowestoft to work with the fabulous Access Community, shooting material of their passionate staff, amazing volunteers and dedicated service users.
 
I traveled to a few of their sites, meeting some really passionate people who are making change in the Suffolk community – certainly not an easy job in our time of constant social care cuts – but the determination shines through and it’s down to organisations like these that help to shape our communities for the better and I feel privileged to be able to provide some form of photographic record of this.

Creative Annual Report Photography

When a call comes in for a shoot, asking you to capture images for the forthcoming annual report, naturally a certain style / preconception comes to mind… within a very short amount of time and following a meeting with the dynamic Chief Executive those preconceptions were blown out of the water as Emma’s plans for a dynamic, vibrant and inclusive Annual Report came to life.

Working with the staff of Access Community Trust
volunteers and service users I had great fun over a day and half shooting images in different settings around the town of Lowestoft – by the end of the second day the report begun to come to life – a selection of vibrant images captured the passion and commitment of the staff, the self-belief of volunteers and service users and provided a perfect visual story to the report, continuing their amazing inclusive commitment.

Water, Mills & Marshes Performance

On Wednesday 9 May the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft saw a live performance by pupils of Lowestoft Sixth Form College and Pakefield High School when they concluded their project to compose, record and perform an album of songs inspired by the Broads. The finished album now kicks off a new competition which will see the pupil’s work go ‘on tour’

The pupils drew their inspiration for the album from a trip to Halvergate Marshes where they were able to spend time immersed in the Halvergate area of the Broads National Park. The experience was then used as a muse from which to draw inspiration as they took time in the classroom to work individually and in groups to compose, write and produce their own score of music.

Corporate clients invest in photography

I’m fortunate enough to work with a handful of terrific corporate clients who invest in photography – they have ditched cheap universal stock photography and all the associated problems these images bring (the same images on similar businesses etc) and instead believe in creating their own imagery of staff and clients – real people and a real focus on individuals.

Recently I was sent out to the coast to photograph one of their clients, a landlord who has a reputation for providing fabulous property services, as well as renovating some of the gorgeous Victorian properties along the seafront.

The wedding of Dominique & John | Proof Book

Looking forward to seeing John & Dominique when they return from their honeymoon… The ‘proof’ album has just arrived from the printers and I’m busy designing their coffee table book… always nice to look back at all the images from the day.. I know they’ll love the proof book, let alone the amazing coffee table book! #WeddingPhotography #Norfolk

Early morning on the East Coast at the Orbis Centre

Lovely morning the other day… After a busy day shooting in Birmingham on Tuesday (now that was hot!) I was on the seawall at 6am the following day, shooting a couple images of Orbis Energy for my client.

The light was stunning, helping to create an unusual image of the centre at Sunrise.

This Saturday – Non League Exhibition

This coming Saturday, pop along to the Crown Meadow, home of Non League football club, Lowestoft Town and take a look at a mini exhibition I’ll be holding at the club, showing around 20 images from the fight for survival photo documentary I worked on last season.

While you’re at the club, settle back with a cup of tea and a nice pie and watch some ‘proper’ football when the Trawlerboys take on Tonbridge Angels, I can’t guarantee the result but the football is normally pretty decent!
