No more than a few hours after finishing off the photoshoot with Lauren, I had another photoshoot with a new muse. This turned out to be my longest photoshoot to date (5 hours, 1,000 photos) – I think the pictures below will explain why… This is one of my favourite portraits that I’ve taken so...

Photoshoot with Lauren

I’d just received a free sample pack from Lee Filters (simply email them and ask for one) – there are 300 different coloured filters, and they’re perfectly-sized to fit over a flash.

5am on a Misty Morning

5am on a Misty Morning

I left a party at 5am, to find that it was VERY misty and cold outside. Unlike any sane person who would have headed straight to bed, I was feeling inspired about my photography thanks to a new friend, so I went down to the King’s backs to try to get some atmospheric photos. These were taken with my new Canon 50D – the better ones had the camera resting on a bean-bag,...

Publicity for ADC Dance Show, "Beauty"

Publicity for ADC Dance Show, "Beauty"

Having photographed the last few years’ CUCDW dance shows in Cambridge, I was asked again this year to create the publicity for the forthcoming show. The show’s producer, herself a dancer, had ideas for the dance imagery to be used in the poster. We worked together to get enough photos of herself in a graceful poise, as well as photos of a flowing scarf, which together...
