Di & Andy’s RAF Cranwell Wedding

Congratulations Di & Andy. Unusually, this was a day off from being the official photographer as I was a guest but I still took a camera along to this superb RAF Cranwell wedding in Lincolnshire followed by the reception at Charlotte House in Lincoln. Working with just one camera and one prime lens, a Canon 85mm f1.8 is an interesting discipline. If you call discipline taking a few pictures between drinks, chatting, eating and dancing. Most of these were shot ‘wide-open’ to keep the depth of field very shallow. Normally with quite heavy, overcast light like this I’d be filling-in the shadows with flash, particularly under hats but didn’t want to carry one so just continued with available light including Andy’s star turn with the band later in the evening.

Lincolnshire Garden Marquee Wedding Photography

Lincolnshire Garden Marquee Wedding Photography Here are a few photographs from Alice and Alistair’s stunning wedding starting with the getting ready and finishing with some impressive dance moves. The flowers by Poppy Vincent were magnificent as was food by Winteringham Fields which even featured an outside cookery demonstration area and oyster bar. Alice & Alistair’s wedding broke the previous record for most pictures I have shot at a wedding, a staggering 2743 frames and in doing so took the honour from the legendary wedding in Curitiba, Brazil of Ricardo & Paula (which I left at 5am with party still in full flow).

Fast Bowler James Pattinson in the sunday times

Here are my portraits of Australia fast bowler James Pattinson as published in The Sunday Times. James is uniquely positioned to give the England team a headache should he picked for the forthcoming Ashes tour as he is currently playing for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club gaining an insight into England’s top cricketers. He already has 36 Australia team caps. Despite enjoying life in Nottingham, James is still not completely assimilated into English life, however. Dodging lawnmowers and posing for me out on the Trent Bridge pitch in a cloudy but pleasant 15 degrees I could tell he was getting cold so we finished off with a few shots back at the historic pavilion. The portraits are of past Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club presidents. For the rest of the shots visit Camera Press.
