Georgia & Joe - A Beautiful Outdoor Ceremony at Elmore Court

November 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I recently found myself back at the amazing Elmore Court to photograph Georgia and Joe's beautiful wedding. After chatting to them about the plans for their wedding during their pre-wed shoot, I was excited to be heading back there again. Elmore Court really is a very special place for a wedding. I was lucky enough to capture one of the first wedd...

Week 6 - Dealing with Imposter Syndrome

November 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
After last weeks disastrous efforts, I started the week with the determination to be focussed and organised. It lasted one day! Monday was fantastic - after packing my lunch (at least that task seems to be going well!) I was in the office early and started the morning by writing out my aims for the day over a cup of coffee. I managed to tick off a...

Ben Vuckovic - Live Musician

November 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Ben Vuckovic to capture some photos for his website. Not having my own studio and knowing that he wanted a few different types of shot, I was able to call upon the lovely Rachel Terry at the Citadel Hall and hire the hall for a couple of hours to give us lots of space to play with. Ben was...

Week 5 - Struggling to find a Rhythm

November 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Lets just start with this - this week has been a bit of a struggle. I seem to have found it nearly impossible to settle into a rhythm. Having additional time to play around with has meant that I have started lots of other little tasks so I feel like I am juggling just as much as I was before! It hasn't helped that the girls are back at school this...

In the Studio with Band Electronica

October 31, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
It's been such a long time since I took these photos but I am excited to say that I am now able to share a handful of images from the time I joined Midge Ure and his Band Electronica in the studio. It's the kind of photography that I love best - being a fly on the wall and documenting proceedings without distracting those involved. I love the chal...

Week 4 - Money Matters

October 29, 2017  •  2 Comments
First thing Monday morning and I found myself sat in bed creating a spreadsheet to keep track of my income and expenses. The reason? Although I took a couple of rather large payments in my first week, I haven't really received much else since. I started to wonder how much my daily income has been on average since I went full time and the only way t...

Family Photography at Oldway Mansion

October 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
A couple of weeks ago I took a drive down to Paignton to undertake a family photoshoot in the grounds of Oldway Mansion. I very rarely drive so far for a family photoshoot, but after a few stressful weeks I decided that it would be a great excuse to stay away for an evening. I'm so glad that I agreed to do it. Although it was the start of October,...

Week 3 - Still Learning

October 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
And so here we are, in week three already! Without intending to do so, Mondays seem to very quickly be turning into my "day off". Last week I spent Monday travelling back from Devon and this week I was invited to join some friends at Lacock Abbey to see an interesting Virtual Reality exhibition by Mat Collishaw and it was amazing! Admittedly, when...

Kirsty & Owen - An Intimate Wedding in Chippenham

October 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
A few years ago I photographed the intimate wedding of David and Sarah at the Bath Guildhall. So when I received a call from David a couple of years later, I assumed he was enquiring about a family photoshoot. However, I was excited to learn that his daughter Kirsty was getting married and having seen how I work and liking my relaxed style they had...

Week 2 - Making Progress

October 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Last week I started a new series of blog posts documenting my foray into full-time photography. If you would like to read the first post, please take a look here. Having a bit more time to schedule my own workload means that I can spend a bit of time writing some extra blog posts without feeling too guilty for pressing pause on other aspects of wo...
