I’ve know Robbie and Sophie for about five years, so was honoured to be asked to photograph their wedding.
Amie and Faye are two models I’ve photographed before, and happen to be best friends too. And they both happen to be excellent photographers as well. So it was only natural to do a shoot with them together.
I headed up to Faye’s “Castle Zombie” in Sheffield for the day, and many fun and amazing photos were taken.
The red dress gets another outing with Amie. I’d already shot Faye in it when we first shot.
At the end of the shoot, I got this candid shot of Faye checking her phone.

Holly was in Cambridge for a photoshoot, and as we planned to start shooting at dawn, she came up the night before. I showed her around St. John’s college, where I studied, and took a few Instagram meta photos of Holly taking photos with her Hipstamatic iphone.
Photos from our shoot the next morning are at http://claudeschneider.com/photoblog/2011/06/14/location-photoshoot-with-holly/
I’ve been commissioned by New Hall to take publicity photographs for their prospectus several times in the past, including last year’s garden party. They have since acquired a benefactor, and are in the process of renaming themselves to Murray Edwards College.
This year’s Garden Party theme was based on Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, with several guests going to great lengths to wear appropriate costumes. Here are some of the photographs the college selected for their forthcoming prospectus.
I was invited back to the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme, at the Divinity School in Cambridge University, to photograph their annual Inter-Faith Conference.
A one-day client sales trip to Toronto afforded me a few hours to see the city.

I was invited to photograph Alex and André’s wedding in Devon, and they and the whole family were most welcoming and helpful. The room used for the bride’s preparations was bright and cleanly-decorated, the ideal location for natural photos.
As Tyra Banks would say on ANTM, “Fierce!”

I was asked to get some photographs of the annual Footlights pantomime at the ADC Theatre, for the University’s 800 Campaign. This year’s pantomime was “Theseus and the Minotaur” – I covered two rehearsals, getting some backstage photos as well as shots of the pantomime itself.
