Oh yes I have one of my masters portraits up and running, well the test print anyway as I want to get all the final expensive box prints done together.

I've taken this rubbish video of it on my iphone. Please let me know what you think- is this portrait a concept you would buy? What am I missing?

I'm going to see Tom and a large selection of both our peers tonight so hopefully I can get a good impression of what people think.

I'm so pleased to have made some progress, the technology of the photo frame to play films has been driving me potty the past couple of weeks!

New Website (ish)

I've been pretty annoyed with my website for sometime now as I know it doesn't have the right image for my current aims, however I cannot make redesigning it a priority at the moment.

So my temporary, stop-gap as it were, solution is a new front page containing the collage below which I spent all afternoon making! To me this new page gives a much stronger impression of what my style and motivations are. It is also better coded, which is important to me as I claim to know a thing or two about web design!

If it doesn't work for you, your comments are much appreciated. As always my main page is at

Happy New Decade!

As with all the blogs I read, I have also been rubbish about posting over the Christmas season. Everything always seems to ground to a halt either because of necessary family time but also this year because of a ridiculous amount of snow. The images were taken this morning when approx 8 inches of snow has prevented me from getting to my part time job, not for the first time this season. Below is Sebastian, my beautiful boy cat, looking confused by so much snow!

2010 is a big year for me. I already have more weddings booked to photograph than ever before. My masters degree will (hopefully) be finished in time for me to graduate in July. And in August I get married myself!

So this year I very much hope to be brave enough to take the plunge to call myself a professional photographer, register myself as a real business, give up all other distractions and charge enough to make it worthwhile (mates rates still available i'm sure)!

I hope everyone else reading this is reaching out for what they want this decade too and I wish you the best of luck.
