I was walking through Seven Dials only yesterday doing a job when i happened across this lovely couple walking up Monmouth Street having their wedding photographs taken!! The photographer was using flash close up with them, and i knew he was missing out on all the beautiful ambient light and reflections… so had a cheeky word and asked the couple if they minded if i took a quick shot of them on the Zebra crossing!! 🙂
I hope they get in touch so i can send them the shot …. i think you’ll agree, the light is beautiful and it makes for a great shot! 🙂 Good luck to them both!
Today I met up with my crazy friends – Tankus The Henge! I’ve known and been photographing these lovable lads for the last 4 years now and there has never been a dull moment.
With the arrival of their new Drummer, their manager thought it about time we got some new promo shots done… so we headed to the wonderful floating Dutch Barge that is ‘Tamesis Dock’ on the London Southbank of the Thames… Apart from being a great location, Neema the lovely lady who runs this ship (literally) provides some lovely food and drinks….! get down there and check it out! its magical! 🙂
The Tankus boys were in fine form, even if it was an early start… and we soon got going with some cheeky antics….
These are just a couple of tasters from the shoot. Hope you like them, and if you fancy coming along to listen to these chaps…. have a look at their facebook page here and come along!! I challenge you to not be able to love them!! 😉

This week I am working at the ‘World Travel Market 2012‘ at ExCel in London as 1 of 4 Photographers providing all the images for the world press. WTM2012 is the leading global event for the travel industry.
As part of this amazing Global trade fair, the WTM team organize many cultural events for the various heads of States and Ministers in attendance. I was lucky enough to be selected to go along and photograph the Ministerial Dinner at the Mayors official London residency – Mansion House in the City. A truly amazing building and venue. I have to say, this is the sort of event photographers love! Fabulous interiors, great lighting and wonderful subjects. This was capped off by the Royal Ballet Company performing as a finale to the evening. I myself have never seen Ballet live, let alone ballet by the very best performers in the world. It was breathtakingly beautiful and elegant! The poise and grace, is truly mesmerizing. I hope you enjoy the photographs and hope to be able to do more of these if i can make further inroads now! Watch this space 🙂
This is why i love my job! Always different, always challenging and a lot of the time a privilege!
For those action photography and movie nuts, check out this new promo video for the launch of the new Go Pro3 launched today!! What a piece of kit this is!!
GoPro has yet again turned the action camera world inside out by introducing the HERO3: Black Edition, the world’s first 4K-capable action video camera (at 15fps) that can also do 120 fps (at 720p). But seriously, just watch the amazing video below video. Thats one hell of a promo video!! amazing!!
Additional specs include having built-in wifi, being 30% smaller, 25% lighter and having a processor that is twice as powerful than the HERO2.
The HERO3: Silver Edition has a max resolution of 1080p 30p like the HERO2, but adds built-in Wi-Fi and is 30% smaller and 25% lighter.
Finally, the HERO3: White Edition is very similar to the Silver edition, except that it can only shoot 5MP stills as opposed to the 11MP stills capability of the Silver Edition.
yes yes yes …. its been months since i have blogged …. i need another set of arms and legs at the moment, not to mention brain!! I have been SOOOOOOOOOOO Busy for the last 5 months …. and still hectic, but thought its about time i got some stuff up on here to show you where i have been and what i have been doing! 🙂
So … as many of you know, i am a big Instagram fanatic!! But…. i mean Instagram in the true sense …. so my shots on Instagram are all 100% Iphone and nothing else!! … I found this dude ‘Sam’ while on my way to a shoot… he got on the train as cool as a cucumber on his retro hotwheels and sat there in amongst the other travellers without a care in the world … I quickly whipped out my trusty iphone 4 for some shots (on the quiet of course!) and got some great shots of Sam without him being aware … ! But when Sam also got off at Willesden Green, my curiosity got the better of me, so i asked him if he’d mind me taking a few shots (i had my Nikon in my bag!! 😉 ) and here they are. Sam was a very interesting guy with a story to tell that amazed me and truly makes you realize that we should never judge a book by its cover!! I hope you like!!
A few shots here for all you bike fans. As some of you will know, i am a BIG bike fanatic. I have been since i was 7 years old when Santa Claus delivered a sparkly new Red Montesa Trials bike! 🙂
Since then i have been hooked, so combining my other love of Photography is just a dream for me. This coupled with sunshine and the odd eye candy, what more can you ask for! 😉
This is the first round of the British Superbikes race series I have been able to get to this year, but i wasn’t too worried as all the other races were in horrible cold wet weather … Snetterton proved yet again to be a cooking pot!
Enjoy the images and share share share …. 😉
This is still one of my favourite shots i have taken during the British Superbikes of 2011. Unlike a lot of the other photographers there, i try to get good behind the scenes shots of the riders…. this for me shows the clear focus and intensity of the riders. John was and is a very dedicated rider. Enjoy!
