A great three days at the Latitude Festival this year – my project was to photograph families having fun and enjoying all that this this family-friendly festival has to offer.

I’m a family photographer so I thought it would be perfect to document the event from a family perspective – to show families having fun over the three days: listening and dancing away to the bands, relaxing & playing in the kids areas,  enjoying themselves at the family campsite, etc.

There is a book available with a selection of the photos. Prints and digital downloads can also be purchased.

Here’s a full preview of the book (the link to purchase is below the preview):

 

To view all the photos, and to order prints and digital downloads of your photos, just click on the following link:

All profits from the sale of the book, prints, digital downloads, etc will go to Manzini Youth Care (see below for info).

Manzini Youth Care provide accommodation, education, support and care to marginalised and young  people at risk through poverty in Swaziland, many of whom are living on the streets.

The number of vulnerable and at risk children in Swaziland continues to grow, as the HIV/AIDS pandemic spreads and the economy suffers due to the worldwide economic downturn.

The economic outlook for Swaziland is not looking hopeful.  The rate of parentless families due to death by disease continues to increase.  Swaziland continues to have the highest HIV/AIDS rate among all the nations at 28-42% depending on the source.  It is estimated that there are nearly 50,000 orphans in the country and another 50,000 vulnerable children at risk.

This is an organisation that works, and makes sure that contributions are used to best effect – you may have seen Eswatini Kitchen products in Oxfam, that is one of their income generation projects.

I have an exciting project taking place next week.

Latitude Festival photos

I’m going to be photographing at the Latitude Festival 2014, in Henham Park in Suffolk, and the aim is to raise funds for an organisation that does great work with children, namely Manzini Youth Care, in Swaziland, Southern Africa.

I’m a family photographer so I thought it would be perfect to document the event from a family perspective – so, to show families having fun over the three days: listening and dancing away to the great bands that’ll be there, relaxing & playing at their tents/accommodation, enjoying themselves at the family campsite & kids area, etc.

I want to document the story of Latitude as a great place for families and children to visit together, and to show fortunate we are to be able to enjoy such events.

The project is fully approved by the organisers, Festival Republic, so big thanks to them for giving this project the go-ahead!

There is a personal link here, as I worked at Manzini Youth Care a few years ago and saw first hand the great work and the achievements that take place every day. Check out their website for more info.

I’ll be producing a book afterwards which will showcase the best shots and this book will be available to purchase. Photos (both prints and downloads) will also be available to purchase, and all profits will be sent to Manzini Youth Care.

I’m covering all my personal costs, such as food & drink, accommodation, tickets, travel, etc, and so actual costs will be minimal – I want to make sure as much as possible is raised and sent.

The book and photos will be available to purchase online as soon as possible after the event.

So how do you get hold of the book or photos? It’s simple – all you need to do is click on the green button below, enter your email address, and as soon the photos are ready I’ll send you an email.

If you would like further info, or would like to make sure your photo is taken (and in the book!), please contact me here or call me on 07818 436706.

Cheers, and hope to see you there!

I travelled to North Yorkshire for Clare & Guy’s pre-wedding photography session…so why would I travel for this rather than making it easy and photographing all clients in Lincoln?

It’s all about the meaning and emotion that will be attached to your photos. The more the location means to you, the more valuable your photos will be over time.

Clare & Guy had just moved into a new house, and had made the move from London to North Yorkshire. – the house being in the middle of renovation and renewal.

A great moment in life to capture!

We took advantage of the weather and location and got a variety of shots around and about.

But, we also made sure we included the house interior. In the not too distant future, the house will be transformed, and these photos will preserve a very special time in Clare & Guy’s lives.

If you’re having a pre-wedding session, have a good think about your location as it makes all the difference…

Babies. They grow up very quickly you know! The cliches are right and before you know it they’re at school!

I photograph babies all the time, and get a lot of enquiries from people saying that they’ve been meaning to call for ages but busy baby life just gets in the way.

I can guarantee that there are many many more people who always meant to call but never got round to it. The moment has gone then, forever – baby is now walking and you’re looking at which pre-school is the one for you!

I do remember that from when my two girls were babies – it’s a whirlwind of a time, and there’s plenty to be done each day. I also remember noticing (almost on a daily basis) that they change and grow so fast! Different from one day to the next.

If you’re thinking of having professional photographs taken of your baby, then you really need to just do it. If it’s not done today that moment has gone for good. I know this sounds like a bit of a sales pitch with me trying to get you to feel so guilty that you just have to to call me, but it’s all so true. Tomorrow your baby will have changed. In a week, a little more, and in a month the changes will be huge!

When is the best time to photograph your baby?

If you’re wanting the newborn look then it’s within days of birth. Three and six months are great, and at nine months your baby is moving around a lot more! At 12 months we’re close to walking and then that’s it, the baby stage is over! And we’re into toddler years…just like that, in the blink of an eye!

You can book an individual session, or, as many people do, you can book a ‘baby’s first year’ package where we have three or four photography sessions over the course of a year.

All you need to do is call me for a chat and we can work out a time that suits you and your baby. I’m used to the nuances of photographing babies, and am used to waiting while they feed and sleep and do what babies do.

In fact a lot of my clients call me before their baby is born. If you’re expecting, then you have the option to purchase a photography session now, and we can arrange the session date later.

If you’re a friend or family member of someone who is having, or had, a baby then you can buy a gift certificate to hand to the new parents – a great gift and one that I know people love to receive.

Call me now on 01522 528810 / 07818 436706 and I’ll go through everything with you.

This baby was photographed in March 2014. It’s now July. I wonder how much he’s changed and grown…

I’ve just returned from a fantastic week-long photography commission in San Francisco. What a place – I spent hours wandering around the streets, and tried to capture a flavour of the city.

Most of my photography work is family portraits, weddings, etc but I also do a fair amount of commercial, corporate and event photography – around Lincoln where I’m based, but I also get to travel to some great locations several times a year. This is the kind of job that I used to dream of as a 15 year old photographer!
