How to photograph weddings in the City | Feature in Rangefinder Magazine

Peaceful, natural and romantic—these are the words that no doubt spring to mind when you think of a rural landscape. You notice the gentle light and the complementary tones and colours, and, most of all, lots of open space. By contrast, the city is more closely associated with being noisy, dirty, aggressive and crowded. The light is harsh and directional, and the surroundings are awash in greys with clashing colours—not to mention, a comparable lack of space. The city is an assault on the senses for both you as a photographer and for your wedding party, but with a little …

2016 | Pick of the Pics

A little late to review 2016, however, as a photographic artist it’s a valuable process and after the pain of filing my tax return, I really enjoyed doing it! As a London wedding photographer, my year began on a cold day in January at one of my favourite London venues the Asylum in Peckham. Then I pretty much spent all my wedding days in the big city of London (other than a couple of jaunts up to the North and a trip to Santorini) shooting my last wedding of the year on a dark rainy day in December with the Wedding Arrangers at Shoreditch Studios.   As …

Council Chamber | Islington Town Hall

I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of one of my faves in October last year.  Sarah & Paul.  Mr & Mrs Beckett tied the knot (after i persuaded them to change the room) in the Council Chamber at Islington Town Hall in October.  After a lovely ceremony and a massive confetti exit Sarah, Paul jumped in a cab to Spa Gardens for a few photographs.   We all arrived to the pub in Clerkenwell just before sunset for cocktails, cakes and dancing.

Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars 2016

Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars… A prelude: In 2003 I got a proper camera and went to Sierra Leone. In 2005 I woke up one morning and decided that I was going to be a professional photographer.   In 2009 I left my marketing job to follow this dream. My development as a photographer has been via a series of destinations.   It’s been a journey along the way, but as artists we need goals and affirmations to keep us going on the infinite road to development. In 2011, while studying for my master’s degree in photography, I came across Rangefinder Magazine‘s Rising Stars, featuring …
