Winter Wedding at The Savoy

Photographing a wedding at The Savoy is always a treat.  Impeccably organised by Bruce Russell and the Fairmont team, any couple is guaranteed a magical day, and no more so when it is the weekend before Christmas where Christmas spirit, champagne and sparkly lights just adds to the occasion.  As one of the Savoy’s recommended […]

PUGLIA photography holiday

2018 saw a new location for my photography holidays.  I’d heard that Puglia down in the heel of Italy was a gem of a location, and so it proved.  Blue blue skies, turquoise seas, historic white washed walled towns, and excellent portrait and street photography opportunities, not to mention fabulous food and wine, made for […]

Barrecore shoot

The brief: shoot some images in the studio to reflect Barrecore expanding their classes to include yoga.  Constraints: shoot to be completed within 60 minutes before evening classes commence. I like working to a deadline.  Having only 60 minutes to recce the space, and shoot a range of yoga poses with two models certainly concentrates […]

Photography Holiday – Rajasthan & The Pushkar Camel Fair, India – post trip photographs

Intimate Weddings at The Savoy, London

Wedding photography. One tends to think of a big ceremony and late night party attended by lots of family and friends, sometimes upwards of 200 people, and all of that to be documented on camera. But occasionally I am asked to photograph a wedding for just the bride and groom, or perhaps the bride, groom […]

A Quiet Place – Yoga in the City

For a while I’ve wanted to try to use photography to convey some of the aspects of yoga that I find really powerful. Not just how it can transform the physical body, but yoga (whether physical postures, or a seated meditation) can be a way of carving out an internal quiet space amidst the busyness […]

Yoga for Cyclists Article for Virgin Active

Teaching group exercise in gyms has for the last 11 years been a regular part of my weeks in London.  I have permanent group indoor cycle classes (‘spinning’), Body Balance (a Les Mills Programme) and Yoga classes for various London gyms.  It is a great complement to photography which can be quite solitary – behind […]
