Event Photography Awards Shortlist

Delighted to announce I’ve been shortlisted for the 2019 Event Photography Awards. The image in question was a capture during a hectic morning shoot in one of the kitchens at a Cambridge College.

Commercial kitchens are never the easiest places to shoot, limited on time, space and equipment. Thankfully several elements seemed to come together and with careful planning the capture was complete.

It’s always a pleasure to be recognised in a national photographic award and especially one that is so hotly contested within the event and commercial photographic world.

BigC Workshop on the Broads

Saturday played host to the BigC Broads Photographic workshop, which I hosted in aid of the fabulous Norfolk charity on the Edge of the River Bure & Thurne.

Given we’ve enjoyed some fabulous recent weather, I think, quite rightly myself and all the participants envisaged a wonderfully warm, bright day with the cameras….. Sadly, we were met with wind, rain and dreadfully cold temperatures… in fact, it felt more like November.

Still, we Brits are a hardy lot and having only one participant pull out, the rest of us popped the rain coats on and proceeded to shoot some atmospheric images along this picturesque part of the Broads.
Naturally, during the workshop, I’m not shooting my own material, instead, advising, suggesting and running through settings and ideas with all.

After the folks had departed Thurne, I stayed on and shot a few 40 second exposures as the darkness rolled in and moments before it began to rain.
A beautiful hue formed over the mill & river and thankfully in those couple of minutes I managed to capture my one frame of the day.

Justus | Uganda

Justus,
I met Justus last year in Western Uganda and was captivated by his community spirit and commitment to helping other people with HIV.
 
He kindly agreed to become part of my documentary series.
 
Justus is a peer educator Working with the MARPS health centre since 2007, he was diagnosed with HIV in 2004 with his wife, when they were tested together. “I was a primary teacher, but now I am a labourer” Justus is a Practising Catholic and now uses his knowledge to educate others about HIV & the dangers of contracting the disease. He walks around 15km to the health centre twice a week for medication.

Fresh Looking Group Shots in Cambs

Group shots can often offer up several challenges.. In days gone by, photographers would typically line people up – one row standing, one row sitting and bang – that was the shot… thankfully, those times are largely gone and it’s enjoyable to use the space and furniture and create pleasing visuals that portray groups of people in a slightly more interesting way.

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

A Wonderful Wedding in Woodbridge

On a beautiful cold winters day, Tina & Gary ‘tied the knot’ in the wonderful surroundings of Woodhall Manor.

While the winter light disappears quickly, it does bring other opportunities for the photographer!

Thankfully, Tina came prepared with enough sparklers for each guest and with the guests happy to brave the freezing conditions for a few minutes we created a wonderfully atmospheric scene to celebrate their union.

Wishing you a happy lovely life together.

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.
