The sea’s only gifts are harsh blows and, occasionally, the chance to feel strong. – Primo Levi
This weekend I decided I wanted, no not wanted but needed to be in and around the sea, so I headed to Eastbourne/Brighton to get my fix and hang out with the guys from Simple as Milk, who made sure my stay was relaxing & fun all at once, so thanks guys; you rock!
I had never been to Brighton but always heard good things about the vibrant, homosexual capital of the UK. I wasn’t disappointed, both Eastbourne & Brighton beach were exactly what I needed, the piers offered typical arcade games and the smell of dinky donuts, Brighton has more cool shops than you can ever imagine, and there is also good coffee to be found in both destinations. Namely, Beanzz in Eastbourne and Nest in Brighton, who serve my favourite coffee from Hasbean. Not only that, I got to have lunch at Bill’s in Brighton, which was incredible. (veggie mezze, seriously awesome, baba ghanoush).
I took my Canon EOS 3000 with me as my AE-1 is currently a bit poorly, which is very sad news indeed. I need to take her somewhere to be fixed, and in the meantime take somephotos OF her to send to my tattooist who is going to be using her as inspiration for my next session.
Anyway, here are some snaps of the beach, the boys and myself. Oh and I should mention the naked people are from the naked bike ride that happens in Brighton every year, we stumbled upon it rather accidentally and I saw a LOT of naked men. Only in Brighton.
4 days old, cute as a button, meet baby Fraser. This series was all shot on film and the effect was quite nice. Glad Fraser’s parents liked the photos!
I am available to do new born, baby, toddler and family portraits in the home or on location. Email me for more info.

Seriously thinking about moving my life to London these days.

The other day I posted a series of photos on my Instagram asking for some more female models to shoot and I got lots of lovely girls saying ‘lets do this’. First in line was Jessie Ellen, who is also figuring out how to use her own camera so we tend to get together so I can share some of my knowledge, which is lovely.
This Saturday was the nicest day of weather we have had all year and the light was just incredible, these were so effortless to shoot and edit with the amazing light and Jessie’s natural beauty. Perfect start to a belated spring!

Back in March I got to shoot the long anticipated wedding of Carl and Laura at the wonderful venue of Rufford Country Park. It was a beautiful day for all involved, and despite it raining all day long and being extremely cold, the whole wedding party kindly braved it for some photos outside (Bride’s orders, who can argue with that?), and the Bride, Groom and immediate family braved it even longer for some shots outside of the abbey itself a short drive away. All in all, a great day, now we just have to wait for Carl’s speech/song to make it’s way to youtube!!
