Paul Martyn photoshoot

Recently I had the pleasure of working with the very talented musician, DJ, singer and all round nice bloke, Paul Martyn.
Paul was having a new promo video by Parkin Arts made at Swancar Farm and wanted some photos to accompany the video, the brief was to keep it relaxed, natural and keep the posed shots down to a minimum, how could I resist.

I have worked with Paul on a number of occasions but with so much going on at a wedding and limited lighting / time, it was nice to spend a day capturing a “behind the scenes” look as the video shoot was taking place, and then creating a set of live photos in the evening.

Richard at Parkin Arts did a fantastic job with the promo video If you want to see how the finished item looks, scroll to the bottom.

Alrewas Hayes Wedding, Lisa & Mark

This is Lisa and Marks Alrewas Hayes wedding with the ceremony taking place at at Appleby Magna Church, such a brilliant day with lots and lots of lovely people.
Although this wedding was last July I thought its about time it was up online, there are good reasons for this not appearing sooner and for once it isnt because im way behind with blogging.

I will be at the Alrewas Hayes wedding fair this coming Sunday (29th September) so if you are getting married come along and say hi.

Leicestershire portrait photography

Just finished adding a portfolio of portraits to the website, so if you want to have a look just click on the portfolio tab above.

For me, great portrait photography is all about capturing a subject’s natural feelings and beauty, I prefer location shooting for portraits and capturing people naturally in their chosen surroundings makes for a relaxed, fun,
session that will produce images that you will treasure forever.

Family shoots are only £50 and include a framed print of your choice. Interested? then check out the gallery and the info page and get in touch to book a session.
