David and Anna – A Ringinglow wedding

  For our last wedding booking of 2011, Helen and I were in the lovely rural setting of Ringinglow, just outside (well, looking over) Sheffield at a wonderful pub/venue called the Norfolk arms. Helen and I had visited the pub as patrons previously so we knew the venue was great, we just had to work […]

Katy and Paul – A Walsall wedding

Helen and I shot a recent wedding at a gorgeous spa hotel in Walsall for the wonderful Katy and Paul. I used to go to school with Katy so it was good to catch up from all those years ago, ¬†and an honour to capture their special day. We had a great time photographing Katy […]

Ashley and Yun – An evening portrait shoot

  A while back, I did some wedding photography which unfortunately had to be cut short due to the riots in Manchester (those of you visiting from facebook may remember a lengthy debate about it on my wall – and thank-you to everyone on facebook for their kind words of sympathy for the bride and […]

Builder and Engineer awards 2011

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the Excel Publishing hosted Builder and Engineer awards 2011 a few weeks ago (I told you I had a busy schedule!) , which whilst I have done event photography before, was a little further from my wedding, portrait and urban photographic comfort zone than usual! The […]

Darren and Sally – A Salford wedding party to remember!

Hello!   I haven’t been able to update my blog for a while due to an incredibly hectic schedule (friends and family will attest to this, I’ve not shut up about how busy I’ve been, sorry guys) – but i’ve got a bit of spare time now for me to breathe and to post some […]

RWM Event

As you may have seen from my previous post, I was on a bit of a photographic mission in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago (i’m playing catch-up at the moment with various photography jobs – I promise you I’m not complaining though!) – part of which was photographing an event in the recycling and […]

A wander round Birmingham at night.

I went for a bit of a wander with a couple of friends a week ago in Birmingham to do some night photography/general catch up – last friday and saturday night i had wedding shoots (more from those in the coming days) so i wanted to firstly get my eye in, and secondly to do […]

Ashley and Yun – A Manchester wedding

A fortnight ago Helen and I shot a wedding in and around Manchester for the wonderful Ashley and Yun. With Ashley being a photographer himself it was a little more nerve wracking than normal (!), but we got some fantastic shots, and even though we were rudely interrupted by the riots going on in Manchester […]

A trip down bokeh lane – Chinatown in manchester

I took a trip into Chinatown in Manchester yesterday evening, took the 50mm lens out for a run as i hadn’t used it much since i bought it – and to check out some good locations for portraits. The neon lights lend themselves well to some pretty out-of-focus ‘bokeh’ backgrounds, and the reds and blues […]

More mountain biking!

A friend of mine is a very good mountain biker – so we decided to head out last Sunday in the glorious sun, find some trails and get some nice action shots! Turned out to be a great day, although some of the trails we found were pretty un-rideable, we found a few good spots […]
