It has been a long time coming but I have finally put together my new site.
The idea behind this new photography site was to produce an easy to navigate and user-friendly experience.
A lot has happened in recent years - I have photographed more weddings in the UK and abroad (including Thailand), taken on new clients such as Boxpark, The GDST and Yo!Sushi. More of my work has been published in different publications including: The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph and the BBC.
Outside of weddings I have taken lifestyle photos for schools and retail outlets and I was most recently featured on the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) website where my one of my clients won a prestigious award for design.
I will be making monthly blog posts so you can keep in touch with what I have been up to.
Enjoy my new website and please get in touch if you have any enquiries.
I spent some time last weekend in Copenhagen with Lowly during their album launch.
Here's a portrait. More to follow...
Only a week left until the private view of my exhibition of portraits from around the globe. I will be spending the next few days curating the exhibition at the gallery.
It has been a fantastic and enlightening journey interacting with people from different continents and I am looking forward to sharing the stories and pictures with you.
Details of the exhibition are below:
I had a portrait session with The Mynabirds front woman, singer-songwriter, pianist, artist extraordinaire earlier this week on the launch day of the band's new album, Lovers Know.
Laura is so characterful and gregarious and she was an absolute joy to photograph.
I will be bringing you more music portraits later in the year and my new website will launch soon.
Here are some of my favourites from the shoot at the Old Blue Last in Shoreditch:
I spent the afternoon photographing the poet on a sunny day in Bermondsey, South London. We spoke about education, specific requirements of students in particular areas of London and about the impact our roles have had on various students we have taught.
Anthony Anaxagorou is an award-winning, published poet. He has and continues to work with poetry organisations such as (London based) Apples and Snakes and Chill Pill. Anthony has made several radio and TV appearances where he talks knowledgeably and passionately about racism, war and religion.

Here are some of my favourites from the session:
I spent a week in Cape Town a few weeks ago (shortly after returning from an epic three month trip in south and central America). I must admit, the main focus of the trip was to sample the culinary offerings of the city. Time was spent in top restaurants as the Test Kitchen, The Pot Luck Club and La Mouette, with the latter being my favourite.
I found the people to be so interesting and friendly. I will be exhibiting travel portraits from 2007-2015 later this year in London.
Here is a selection of my favourite portraits:
Back in October 2014, I decided to go on a very long walk in Buenos Aires. It was my first time back after eight years!
It was interesting to see how things had changed, especially shops, bars and restaurants. However, the wine, food and music remained the same. Here are some of the shots from the day.
What a wonderful wedding at Loudwater Farm, Rickmanswowrth.
James and Emma are such a lovely couple and it showed on their wedding day! There were intricate details and lovely touches including an on-site stone baked pizza van!
Here's a selection of my favourite shots from the day, in black and white.
Last week I photographed Vicky and Robin's wedding in Bow, east London.
Here is one of my favourites from the day!
I went to Thailand and Vietnam in April for a much needed break in the sun.
Having been to Thailand before, I knew what to expect in terms of food, fun and entertainment. Vietnam, however, blew me away! The people were (are) friendly, the food is great and I can honestly say that crossing the road (in Ho Chi Minh City) with your eyes closed is one of the surrealist moments ever!
Here are some photos from my time there. As always, my interest is in the people so there will be many portraits here.

I spent the last week travelling around northern India, taking in the colours, food, culture and the welcoming and vibrant people.
I met a number of characters including a few students on a school trip at Humayun's Tomb, a lovely toddler who helped his father sweep up leaves near India Gate. There were the ladies in the gardens surrounding the Taj Mahal who were initially apprehensive about their photo being taken.
The most pleasant experience for me was the relationships I built with the people on the streets of Delhi and Agra (and Jaipur in a previous trip) which allowed for some lovely intimate moments.
Here are some of my favourite photos from my most recent time in India:
My latest project is called: The Forgotten Children.
I have decided to mix my love for education with my passion for photography and showcase photos and stories of children from around the world.
This photo was taken in a Berber village in Morocco.
His name is Abdul. He lives in a Berber style house. He lives with his parents, cousins, one aunt and two uncles.
I found out that the King - Mohammed VI - was responsible for ensuring that all houses (in Morocco) now have access to running water and electricity. He has also insisted that all villages, including that of the Berber, have a mosque and a school (for the local children).
King Mohammed's foresight has allowed children like Abdul to prosper through free education.
The project will continue in India...
It's not every day you photograph a wedding in the company of such phenomenal paintings crafted by artistic greats like: Rembrandt, Poussin and Gainsborough.
December's wedding took place at the Dulwich Picture Gallery where we captured Nick and Helena's magical day. Their theme was 'Christmas' and everyone was full of Christmas cheer as the mulled wine and cake was consumed in festive abundance.
Stuart was with Helena in the morning as she was getting ready and I was at the venue photographing the set up and awaiting Helena's arrival.
Here are some of my favourites from the day:
The pleasure was mine today when I photographed Kiyah. She was running around and felt at home in the park.
Here's one of my favourites from the shoot...
This was a lovely, intimate wedding in north London. It was a bit of a homecoming for me because the ceremony was at St Monica's Church, Palmers Green (my first residence) and the reception was at the luxurious West Lodge Park Hotel in Hadley Wood.
As usual, there will be a preview a day. I'll start with one of my favourites:
