About Me

My photo

I adore photography, weddings and portraits are my speciality but I also love fine art, landscape and architectural work.

The week ahead

Hello everybody,
A very busy week ahead, i don't know if I can fit everything in!
Today - Helping my dad move house...oohhhh the joys!!!
Tues & Wed - Work & business related stuff.
Thurs through to Sunday - work, car shopping, computer shopping, clothes shopping, marketing, playing with the kids, possibly a day out planned, a 1st birthday party, taking some photos, planning a new photography project.  Assisting with some Makers and Shakers work.  If i get all that done, i think i'll reward myself with a nice few beers!
Have a great week and enjoy the bank holidays!
Kindest regards
The quote of today is - "Photographs are taken by artists not scientists" in other words you don't need the greatest camera in the world to take the greatest pictures!

Thanks for looking
