Photoshoot with Sarah (Studio 2)

One of my favourite muses, Sarah, had asked me to do a photoshoot for her sister. Those are coming soon, but in the mean time, now online – here are some of my favourites of Sarah from the shoot. This first photo is an updated headshot to add to Sarah’s portfolio, as she’s doing more theatre and film these days. At the end of the shoot, Lucy took the camera...

Acting Headshot for Laura

Acting Headshot for Laura

The first portrait/headshot photoshoot I’ve done since December (which was one of my best ever, before my photo-mojo went walkabout). Laura was at St. John’s, and is one of the stars of BBC’s Wannabes.

Royal Botanic Gardens, Madrid

Royal Botanic Gardens, Madrid

I’ve not really taken many photos in the last few months, but a spur-of-the-moment trip to Madrid was a great way to get my photo-mojo back in gear. While there were few photogenic subjects in the city, the Botanic Gardens contained a wealth of stunning visual treats. I also put together another Colour & Form montage from the Botanic Gardens . Purple Pansies Close-up of...

Retiro Park, in central Madrid. A bright sunny day. Water fountains. Perfect conditions for capturing the water patterns of a jet of water, with time-frozen droplets of another fountain filling the rest of the...

Balloon Art

Balloon Art

I was commissioned to photograph the Cambridge University Jewish Ball, where one of the entertainers, David Crofts, created the most incredible balloon art I’ve ever seen. Some of the creations shown on his website have to be seen to be believed. Monkey and palm tree David Crofts, with Tigger and...
