One of my recent brides, Natalie Bridgeman has written a marvellous blog offering encouragement to any camera shy brides to be out there. Oh, and she was nice enough to be kind about how I helped her through it as well. Thanks Natalie!
I've owned several cameras over the years. One of my first was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7. I took hundreds and hundreds of images with with little camera and it is probably where I first really started to expand my own photography skills beyond just pointing and shooting. Even now some of the results look quite delightful, despite the now tiny 6MP resolution. Here's a few favourites to look at.
When you have arranged a really great party, make sure that everyone can appreciate the work that has gone into it by making sure that your fabulous arrangements, and your perfectly turned out guests, are in lots of photos for you to share after the event.
Keep your conference delegates coming back each year, and bring new people by making sure that you have lots of strong images of your delegates participating and contributing to your event. The Fabian Society host a really vibrant annual conference each January and I have been photographing it now for 7 years. Each year brings a great mixture of prominent opinion formers, MPs and activists, but the real secret to their success is the passionate involvement of the delegates who make the the event really special.
Last month I went up to the Lexington in King's Cross to see Lone Taxidermist, whose work I discovered at the start of the month. I realised I could not pass up the chance to see her live when I read some of the reports of their extraordinary live performances. I wasn't disappointed and was lucky enough to get some great images while I was there, a selection of which are here. You can see more of them my Flickr page, along with some other music photography from the last few years.
I was present for another exciting event held by the National Autistic Society at the House of Commons, part of their Held Back campaign to encourage schools to provide all the help necessary to help those with autism thrive at school. If you need vibrant images to tell the stories of your campaigns, do get in touch
I've had some good reviews about my work. Maybe you have contribute to them, hopefully you will in the future.
I've been photographing the annual Fabian Conference for several years now, and I'm always delighted to cover an event so buzzing with political engagement, and lively debate. This year the venue was a new one, Friends House near Euston Station, and the keynote speech was once again the leader of the Labour party Jeremy Corby. With stimulating debate both in the main conference room, and at many plenary sessions thought this excellent venue, there was plenty to keep the conscientious liberal busy and happy throughout the day . .
