Fyfield Wedding Photography - Gaby & Tom's Wedding

Gaby & Tom’s amazing wedding at St Nicholas Church Fyfield.

I remember there being a real homely feel to the place, they were very natural and down to earth; I liked them both straight away. Their home is connected to the one

Rob - One of my favourite Portraits.

Rob – One of my favourite Portraits. Most of the portraits on my website are portraits photographed in Essex, my home county. These reflect  a nice balance between studio portraits, location portraits and commercial portraits, all of which I enjoy equally. However as a portrait photographer it’s always nice to look and work further afield than my home or surrounding counties. Which is one of the reasons  shooting this portrait was particularly special. Why? Because

Location Portrait - why I love this photograph

Location Portrait – why I love this photograph. This portrait was taken on a warm summers evening shooting into the light / sun. This gives it a beautiful soft feel with a nice glow behind the model and the grass in the background. This is actually a very flattering light, particularly good for photographing women as it leaves the skin looking very smooth with little sign of any blemishes or wrinkles. The image was shot

The Magic of Black & White Portrait Photography

Black & White Portrait Photography in Halstead. I think there is something very special almost timeless about black and white photographs. Something which grabs your attention so as you just can’t stop looking. Sometimes, in a photographic portrait, colours can be quite distracting and can take the focus away from the subject. Black and white is somehow more gritty, stripped back, and allows you to show/see the true person as they really are. There is
