Wedding Photography Workshop Images at Hazlewood Castle

Last week I had the immense pleasure of attending a wedding photography workshop at Hazlewood Castle near York. It was a 5 hour drive from me in Sussex, but well worth it. Running the program was a leading wedding photographer from that area and he gave us two days of shooting and administrative know-how.

I had a blast!

The images below are a selection of some of my favorite images that I took during the first day of the workshop. Two models, Vivienne and Luke were our bride and groom and they did a magical job.

I plan on using the below techniques in some of my weddings from now on. My understanding of on and off camera flash as well as using video lights has increased tremendously. During these two days it became even more clear to me how automation and post processing workflow are key to production as a wedding photographer.

The rest of my 2012 weddings will benefit from these new techniques and certainly my 2013 and beyond!

Marco and Nancy’s Wedding Verona, Italy

I love my job! I get to meet amazing people, travel all over the world and share in one of the most special days in a person’s life.

So when Marco and Nancy asked me to fly to Verona, Italy to photograph their wedding I jumped at the chance. Italy is one of my favorite counties and I knew that it would yield stunning results. Almost no place on Earth has better light. It is this soft, lovely, flowing light that I can’t get enough of. I have been photographing it for over 10 years and I had high hopes.

When my wife (and assistant) and I drove around the hills of Valpolicello, near Verona, where the ceremony was held, we both knew it would be special.

When we were invited to stay for the reception and eat for 5 hours (a standard occurrence at Italian weddings) we were both humbled and elated.

Thank you to Marco and Nancy for choosing us to photograph your wedding. We had a marvelous time. Enjoy the images.

Wickes East Grinstead Store Opening

This past weekend I had a call from a PR company in London asking me if I could photograph the Wickes DIY store opening in East Grinstead. It was the very next day and not much time to study the brief, but I agreed.

Wickes coming to East Grinstead is quite a big deal and I would’t miss the chance to photograph the mayor of East Grinstead cutting the ribbon at the new Wickes store.

The weather was perfect for the event. The sun was shining and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. It actually was too bright outside and the mayor and staff can be seen squinting despite my “close your eyes… 123… now open them” technique that usually works wonders.

Never the less, I captured some great images and I’m happy I was called to photograph the event.

Thanks to everyone at Wickes and to the PR company in London.
