Portraits in Peckham with Sarah
This is an image that I had total forgotten about. (How This happened I have no idea) It was taken in the earlier part of 2015 whilst on a street photography day out with good friends and photographers Gary Lashmar & Pat Kelman around London’s Brick Lane. This has to be one of the first image that I took using a 24mm Tilt Shift Lens.
Most people don’t have a need so therefore won’t have a Digital SLR camera in there arsenal. The professional, enthusiastic & amateur photographers among us that do have one (or more) will know all to well that carrying one of these around at all times in the anticipation of capturing the perfect photo opportunity that may present itself to us while on our travels just isn’t a practical thing to do. In modern times it’s a rare thing to encounter someone that doesn’t have an iPhone or similar such device on their possession, most of which have pretty decent little cameras built into them. Partner one of these up with one or more in phone image processing apps like VSCOcam, Snapped or Mixtures to name but a few that are out there and anybody can have a cool, convenient and instant piece of photographic kit ready to go at their finger tips.

The beautiful little lady featured here is my six-year-old daughter Skye. She is the one person in my life who I look forward to seeing more than any body else. Just seeing her or hearing her voice on the phone is enough to put a smile upon my face and I have to admit that she’s quite literally got me wrapped around her little finger. (I’m sure that she realises this.)
There’s something to be said for how your children can make you feel. Even in times when the proverbial chips are down, I can look at her and I know that as long as she is happy, really what else have I got to worry about? She’s quite a little character. If she’s not talking me into taking her bowling, pizza express or to another of her favourite places to go then she will usually be found beating me at every single board and card game under the sun. Uno, mouse trap, snakes and ladders, frustration, snap, hungry hippos the lot. You name it she can beat me at it. The white wash is complete and I have totally accepted that this is just something that I’m going to have to live with. I mean really…. I wouldn’t mind if I was giving her a chance but the fact is that I’m not. I’ve tried to catch her cheating but that’s just not the case. I should just give up trying and smile.
Kate & Steve’s wedding in London. A little tour of the city that started out in the Angel, moved on to the East End and finally ended up at a quirky venue that I never knew about in Clerkenwell called the J & A Café. The day was like a little trip down memory lane, traveling through places that I hadn’t been to for years, exchanging stories in the back of a London cab with the bride & groom, while at the same time meeting new people. It was a great day all round. After photographing the day I walked most of the way home from The city to where I live in South East London, playing the days events over in my mind. Thank you my friend and inspirational photographer Gary Lashmar who I was assisting on this wedding.
The wedding of Anna & Thom was quite simply an amazing experience. I photographed their wedding back in the summer of this year while alongside fellow wedding photographer and Gary Lashmar. The couple themselves were a pleasure to work with. For the whole day they was very cool about everything taking everything in there stride. Equally all of their guests were fantastic, whilst the day itself was for lack of a better word was perfect. This was the first time that I had photographed a wedding at Hill Place in Hampshire. The venue, scenery and surroundings are beautiful and I would love to shoot there again in the future. I can honestly say that I loved every second of the two days that I was there for and that I am very happy to be sharing this blog with you all.
