You are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay
you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart...x

Emma & Ben's wedding...

Fantastic wedding shot at Wynyard Hall. Thankfully there are lots of trees, because Emma loves trees. Ben’s speech had the best opening line for a groom’s speech I’ve heard in 18 years of shooting weddings. Stolen from the chandelier disaster sketch...

“I love life because what more is there”…

I can’t believe we are at that time of year again where the studio remains mainly redundant in favour of the great outdoors. I find photographing children on location gives me chance to capture them in a more natural environment, which then reflects in the final images. I also now like to combine outdoor shoots with potable flash lighting to give more of a fashion feel to the images. This style I find is very effective when shooting teenagers. Longer days also give me the advantage of being able to shoot later into the day. “I love life because what more is there”…

Jack & Tilly...

I’m afraid Jon & Jane the happy couple at Friday’s wedding didn’t stand a chance in the battle for the cutest couple. Their son and daughter Jack and Tilly stole the show. I’m sure Jon & Jane would be the 1st to admit it...

Mayoral Installation...

This is my 2nd year of photographing the Mayoral Installation. Some of the protocol still keeps me on my toes, but all in all a seat of the pants enjoyable occasion. I have attached a montage of shots taken of Kevin, the Mayor's mace bearer. Kevin sat in while I adjusted my lighting set up before the Mayors arrival. Taken in a small side room attached to a local church, using my portable elinchrom ranger kit...

5 stars out of 5...

In this months DIGITAL SLR magazine one of the workshops I run has just been given 5 stars out of 5. I was also described as extremely knowledgeable, approachable, charismatic and entertaining ( I need my wife and daughters to read this). The point of my post is to give a thank you to team ASPIRE. I’m fully aware that all the hard work has happened before I turn up, I just breeze in talk and use a camera. Keep up the good work and see you in June, Gary…

Timeless Images!!!

Apart from the opening 2 shots, I decided to load only a selection of the B&W images from Felicity & Neils wedding. I love black and white images. I think expressions and emotion are picked out easier without the distraction of colour. You also create a timeless feel to the images...

LONDON 2012

The contracts are signed and the ink is dry!!!. I can now formally announce that I have been invited to give two seminars at The SWPP photographer’s convention 2012. Thousands of photographers from the UK, Europe and further afield will descend on London, close to The West End for the biggest and best show of its kind in Europe. Photographic business leaders plus forward-thinking photographers, whose ideas spark innovation and change in the industry, will be in attendance. So far I have come up with a title for my talk, the rest is still to be sorted…

Portrait Shoot at Grandma's House...

Great fun shooting Florence & George at G'ma's house. We managed to dodge the rain and I think I have a friend for life in George...
