I’m going to be honest and say that I’m pretty behind the times and I’ve only just discovered podcasts. That’s not to say that I didn’t know that they existed, it’s just that I’d never really listened to many. 6 or 7 months ago I found a couple that were great and since then I’ve been consuming more and more podcasts and finding that they’re a great source of inspiration. I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you. Hopefully you can get some value from them just like I have…Read More
I was asked recently by one of the blog readers, to do a little bit more behind the scenes stuff and to also explain how some of the images are created. So I thought I would use these recent portraits and go into a little more detail about how they were done…Read More
I set myself a target of one blog post a week for a year! I’m nearly halfway through and I’ll be honest, it’s quite a task. There are so many different elements to being a self-employed professional photographer that take priority and the blog can feel like a weight around the neck some weeks…Read More
With a title like ‘Live for the Look’ I bet you’re wondering what this week’s blog is all about…
I’m going to do a little bit of cheating this week. A little while ago I was asked by the lovely team at RMG Models (https://www.rmg-models.co.uk/) to answer some questions for their blog, about being a photographer. The title for my blog post this week came from the RMG agency hashtag…Read More
So the UK has been hit by a heatwave this week with temperatures reaching record highs of 38 degrees celsius. Pretty hot right? Too hot for some and, definitely, too hot to be sat at a computer blogging! That’s why this week I am a little late on posting and also why I am keeping this short…Read More
This week there has been so much going on, and I will be honest and say that my brain has been filled with jobs, post-production, meetings, ideas and life away from photography. It’s been hard to focus my brain on just one thing especially the blog! Even now I am sat here being distracted from writing by messages about a job tomorrow and emails from clients wanting to book in pre-production calls. So ironically this blog post is about some simple things that I do to try and stay focused! Hang on there’s the phone….
Sorry about that! Interestingly though it does segway nicely into my first tip on staying focused…Read More
‘The newest Islander to arrive on Love Island is…’
No not really! But you were nearly had you right?
This blog post actually has nothing to do with Love Island apart from the fact that during a recent shoot, with Danni W from RMG Models, we created some shots that, the whole team joked, looked like Love Island promo images…Read More
Barcelona is one of my favourite cities in the world. I’m not sure what it is, but I just feel at ease there. Earlier this year I went to Barcelona, but this time I decided to go alone! It may sound strange to a lot of people but I actually really like travelling alone, you can really get a sense and feel of a place. Wandering the streets of Barcelona on this trip really confirmed my love for this incredible city and culture…Read More
It’s going to be another short blog post this week in comparison to last weeks lengthy number. I have been in London working, for the early part of the week, so time has been a little limited, especially for thinking about and composing another blog post. With that being said, here is what I came up with at short notice…
I’m keeping it nice and simple again this week! I thought I would simply share some of my favourite images from a recent lingerie shoot with, the lovely…Read More
Every now and then, in any creatives life, we experience that ‘creative block’. Some of us more than others. It’s just not flowing or you’ve lost some of that passion that you once had for the medium that you love so much! Don’t worry, it happens to everyone, even the greatest artists throughout history I would guess. Now, I am most certainly not one of the greatest artists in history, but this is where I also found myself recently… in ‘Creative Nowhere Land’!Read More
