Not my day job…

So I have been promising some cuddly animal photos since I got back from the wedding I shot at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, so here you are. Some of them aren’t quite so cuddly. It was a bit of a break from the normal day to day and I won’t be shooting for National Geographic […]

Please help! I love Mondays…

…but I’m not a fan of the end of the week and I’m not sure what to do about it. So any tips and advice would be much appreciated. I’m starting to think it is a self-employed issue. I used to be normal. Well okay not particularly normal but I used to have a five […]

Why family photos are awesome!!!

I love photographs. Just as well I decided to be a photographer, isn’t it? Images connect us to our past. They inspire us and show us who we are and where we came from, so not lots of words on this post…but maybe a few of tears. This is the start of a personal project […]

It did leave me with a bit of a quandary. What to exhibit?  I haven’t had time this year for a lots of photos for fun or […]

Tired and self-indulgent…

Too many ideas…not enough time to think about them is my current issue, which has led me to have a bit of a bi-polar week. Often I find myself flying high buoyed but the fantastic people I’ve met and great opportunities that present themselves only to come crashing down again with the realisation of how […]

Portraits, who you are or who you want to be?

The blog has been a bit wedding and engagement heavy of late so I think it’s time to look at other parts of the business. I never set out to do only wedding photography. I know photographers are regularly told they have to do one thing but that doesn’t fit with my philosophy. I want […]
