Heaton House Farm Wedding Photographer
30/10/2017

Amazing Indian Fusion Wedding   I am very fortunate to be a member of a circle of highly Professional Photographers who call on each other when needing a Second Shooter. However, never in a million years did I expect to be opening an inbox from Liam Crawley asking if I would like to second shoot for him.  Hell yeah! The guy is a genius, a master of his art! I use the following analogy for people who don't quite understand the significance of...

Second Shoots-Sefton Palm House Jewish Wedding Photographer
13/10/2017

Jewish Wedding At Palm House, Sefton Park.   Picture the scene from Only Fool's and Horses's, with Del-Boy and Rodney sat in their little yellow van. They had just left Sotheby's after securing £6.2 million. That was Sam and I after I received my second invitation from the very talented Liam Crawley asking me to shoot for him again, this time at a Jewish Wedding. I was thrilled to be asked, and I knew I would be in for a spectacular day. The...

Blackpool Wedding Photography
07/10/2017

Jon-Paul and Lynsay's Blackpool Wedding.   Having had a career in the Licensed Trade I was friendly with Jon-Paul, the Licensee of The Albion in Bispham.  He knew I had changed career path to become a Wedding Photographer, and one evening asked my availability for his wedding in August. I had originally blocked this week off for some much needed R&R. However, not wanting to miss the opportunity of shooting what I knew would be a...

Catherine & Liam's Pre-Wedding Shoot at Reddish Vale Country Park
16/09/2017

  Reddish Vale Photography Today I shot a Pre-Wedding Shoot for Catherine & Liam.  I met them at a wedding fayre a couple of months ago and they were lucky enough to win the shoot with me simply by entering themselves into the draw. The weather looked a bit iffy all day and it tried to rain on us at least once, but luckily we escaped a complete downpour.  Catherine & Liam were good sports and didn't shy away from climbing over logs or...

https://vimeo.com/232868187 Three Days, Three Counties. A Traditional Muslim Wedding for Muhammed & Sana. The day I met Sana and discussed her Muslim Wedding it was a gloriously sunny April Spring day. One of the first nice days after a long, cold and miserable Winter. Sam and I were due to exhibit at The Grand Venue in Clitheroe. I have to admit, I was tempted to set up the stand and leave it unmanned. The temptation to explore the quaint...

Yet another new website
11/08/2017

It's my annual website overhaul time again!  I last gave the site a facelift in June 2016 and it looked quite nice (at the time).  However time rolls on and it was looking a bit sad, neglected and dated.  So I spent a few days hunting around, stalking other photographers and stealing ideas and I finally came up with this new layout :) Image heavy, as it should be for a photographer, cleaner, faster and it has shiny buttons that work! Have a...

Lancashire Pre-Wedding Shoot - Polly & Brandon
23/06/2017

On one of the hottest, brightest and stillest days so far this year, I took Polly & Brandon up to one of my favourite places for their Pre-Wedding Shoot.  Beacon Fell has a great mix of forest trail, woodland, open vistas across miles of hillside and even a duckpond! Just a few steps off any trail and the forest swallows you, ensuring privacy for a photoshoot.  We spent 2 hours trampling our way around the Fell top and only crossed paths with...

Oaks Hotel Burnley - Sam & Aidan
30/05/2017

Sam & Aidan at the Oaks Hotel, Burnley Bridal Prep I joined Sam & Aidan at the Oaks Hotel Burnley pretty early in the morning.  I love Bridal Prep time as it gives everyone a chance to get used to the camera being in the room and the atmosphere is always fun and interesting. Sam was with her two daughters, best friend and her mum.  The makeup artist and hairdresser were minutes away and apparently, Aidan had set off on his way to the...
