Adding Flash to Ambient Light

This is another from Jo and Paul’s wedding, and like the gate image, this was just one of those scenarios you kinda stumble across.

Review – Strobius StrobiStrip

Arriving in a tightly packed box, I had two identical, nylon cylindrical cases. One contained a 50cm Strobius StrobiStrip, whilst the second contained a 100cm model.

The Outlaw – Avoiding Reflections in Chrome

This image came from a location lighting course I was asked to host in August 2015 for Cambrian Photography, based in Colwyn Bay, Wales. Our model was a local “Outlaw” chap, complete with a self-built bike.

Using Speedlights to Maximum Effect for OCF

This is OCF (off camera flash) at it’s cheapest, along with the use of some basic rules and techniques. Seeing as sunsets tend to be in short supply in the UK, I try and make the most of any sunset that coincides with an event I’m photographing, and this particular wedding at Murrayshall House in Perth, Scotland, was one such event.

Wedding Photography at Eaves Hall

Eaves Hall is a fascinating wedding venue, with lovely architecture and little hideaway places that are great fun for couples wanting photography that’s distinctly different. In the grounds, you will find a lovely stone built gazebo. It photographs beautifully, and with a little added light, the backdrop of greenery really comes alive.

Food Photography in West Yorkshire

Food photography is one of my favourite subjects, and not because of the food. I actually don’t eat the food, I struggle to keep my weight down as it is!

Wedding Photography at Barton Grange Hotel

This particular venue is full of surprises. Barton Grange Hotel in Barton, nr Preston, is very unassuming when seen from the road. But go poking around the back, or indeed inside, and the potential presented to the wedding photographer is really quite mind boggling!

The Sparkling Bride at Farington Lodge

Victoria There’s a little bit of a back story to this. Well, not the image, but the bride. I had an email requesting a visit, and I thought I recognised the surname. Turns out her mother was a friend I had lost touch with twenty years previously.

Bridal Portraits With One Light

This was from Lee and Hannah’s wedding in July 2014. I was fascinated by Hannah’s quite arresting gaze, and had the idea for this particular image from early in the day. It’s actually lit by a single light source, boomed above me. Access was a little tight, as there is a piano between the couple and me. As you do.

Food Photography for Macdonald Hotels

There’s a number of hotels I photograph food for, the Macdonald Tickled Trout is one of them. This was part of a number of images for an advertising campaign, photographed within their recently refurbished restaurant.
