A wild and wind-swept Marianne


After spending a really nice day together visiting ‘Grandad Whitstable’ and doing some portrait photography for her art project, my daughter Mally and I packed up the gear and headed back to London. We decided to take a detour along the sea front at Herne Bay to watch the sunset. As we soaked in nature’s visual feast, I grabbed this windswept shot.

Another busy Week

It’s been a busy week pulling together the production and casting for the shoot in France on top of organising and directing a video interview for an agency client, which we shot on Thursday.
The shoot in France involves quite a sizeable crew with three models, stylist, hair & makeup, two assistants plus the agency creatives. Transport from the UK, hotels, meals and daily taxies all needed organising and we were still waiting for client sign off on budget until very late on Wednesday….. and that’s all before I’ve even started thinking about the photography.
I have to give a big shout out and thank you to location manager and producer Tom Elgood for pulling this all together for me.
So a bit of time today to catch my breath and do a final check on the kit list.
The models and crew leave tomorrow afternoon on the Eurostar and myself and 1st assistant will be driving down c/o le shuttle.
All set for a great shoot next week!

Getting Past the First Post

Hello and welcome to my first post. It feels a strangly daunting thing deciding on what to write in my first post on my new Blog. Although I’ve had a presence on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin for a while now, I’d held back from writing a blog because I wanted to tie this in with a complete re-vamp of my website. Well at long last, and certainly not before time, I’ve started that process. I’m actually really excited about this, because as well as looking forward to designing the new website, this also gives me the opportunity to take stock of what’s been a very busy year, re-edit the folio and work on a whole new set of images for the site and portfolio.

In conjunction with all of this however, I now need to start creating content so that when the new site goes live in 6 to 8 weeks, visitors to the site aren’t confronted with a rather sad no news blog. Although I had toyed with the idea of creating a tumbleweed GIF as the opening post, I’ve decided instead to take a retrospective look at the past year and start with news, jobs and stories that have made up 2014-15….. So here goes.
