I fell in love with New Orleans as soon as we arrived. It’s very difficult not to. There’s a real joy to be experienced in New Orleans and it’s a city that plays to the senses. From the constant party atmosphere that pervades the city, to the beautiful colonial-era balconies of the French Quarter, to the incredible sugary beignets (seriously worth the trip just to experience these melt-in-the-mouth doughnutty delights!) to the best free concerts of your life. Never have I experienced so many talented buskers in one place. It took us forever to explore the city because around every corner there was another group of incredible artists performing and you couldn’t just pass them by. Continue reading
Pibbles Nook, a countryside holiday retreat, is a little haven of a holiday cottage in the county of Rutland.
I had the pleasure of taking photographs for their new website but would happily have stayed for a weekend myself! It is beautiful and peaceful and surrounded by stunning countryside. Continue reading
Jumping on a train to escape London for the seaside at Brighton is one of my favourite things. Fish and chips on the beach (whilst trying to get comfortable sitting on pebbles!), breathing in the sea air; you can’t beat it. I hadn’t really appreciated until recently, however, just how many beautiful beaches are within a stones throw of London. Whitstable, it turns out, is the gem of them all. Continue reading
Guernsey is just plain beautiful and I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped off the plane. At times, the clear sea and sandy beaches could have you thinking that you were on the Sardinian coast. However, it was freezing!
I recently took some photographs for Westside Health and Fitness Club which is based in the picturesque market town of Stamford in Lincolnshire.
Westside recently had a new website designed and developed by the brilliant Chadwick Design Limited. I was very please to be asked to take the photographs for the new website, which went live today! Take a look! Continue reading
A short while ago I did a shoot in Oxford and couldn’t help but stay for a while longer and explore the beautiful city. Considering that it is so close to London, I rarely go but this trip reminded me that I really should. From trendy Jericho in the North-West, through the colleges and cobbled streets in the centre, to the East of the city with its cheap eats and ‘tucked away’ bars, this really is a stunningly diverse city.

It has been such a busy few weeks that I am only just getting around to sharing this post with you. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of doing a portrait swap with the very talented Julie Michaelsen, of Julie Michaelsen Photography.
Julie is an inspiration as she gave up her job in finance in order to become self employed and pursue a career as a photographer. And what a brilliant photographer she is. You can read her story here.
It’s 4pm on a Friday and we all know that you’re not working. You’re sitting at your desk doing a good job of pretending to work but you’re clock watching and refreshing Facebook and waiting for the weekend to hurry up and arrive. Continue reading
We visited the Natural History Museum as children and I can remember being utterly awestruck by this wonderful place. Of course at the time, this had a lot to do with the life-size model of the Blue Whale and the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons! Continue reading
