Conference – The Progressive Generation

Conference – The Progressive Generation

A leadership conference for American grad students in the UK, focussing on Healthcare, the Environment, and Education. These bright individuals may be the future policy makers and thinkers for America, and having listened in on their discussions, that future looks good. The keynote speaker, Matthew Taylor, has been a key government advisor for the last 10 years, and now heads the...

Photoshoot with Greg (Mr Darcy)

Photoshoot with Greg (Mr Darcy)

Yet another photoshoot, taking advantage of the glorious weather. Unfortunately this one had been postponed a couple of times, and the weather has started to get a bit cloudier and colder. Breaking from my usual photoshoot habit, I thought I’d photograph a male model, partly so that I don’t focus solely on photographing beautiful women. I first met Greg at a formal...

Photoshoot with Rebecca (Meadows)

Photoshoot with Rebecca (Meadows)

I’ve been taking advantage of the glorious weather, and have been doing more photoshoots with my muses (5 this week).

About a year ago, I started planning a set of photos of Cambridge...

Photoshoot with Sarah (Orchard)

Photoshoot with Sarah (Orchard)

After the brief but beautiful photoshoot with my friend Sarah a few days ago, we decided to arrage a proper photoshoot. As the weather has stayed warm and sunny, we had a picnic in the orchard at the back of her college, St. Edmund’s, followed by some more photos, which again look fantastic. The mid-afternoon sun wasn’t ideal for direct-light photos, but there were...

Photoshoot with Sarah (Castle Mound)

Photoshoot with Sarah (Castle Mound)

I met Sarah through some of the dance shows that I’ve photographed this year – she was in Perspectives, this year’s CUCDW show, as well as the CU Ballet Show. I’d taken a quick portrait of her a few weeks ago, and was keen to take a few more photos of her. The weather has been rather sunny recently, so with half an hour to spare before I had to be elsewhere,...
