Tifaine and Ivan’s Wedding

For this week’s London wedding photography, Dana and I went off to Smithfield in London to photograph Tifaine and Ivan getting married at the ancient church of St Bartholomew the Great. The church is beautiful inside, very atmospheric, and the lovely clergy were happy for us to tip-toe round taking photos during their ceremony.

Tifaine and Ivan had their reception at the Portal Restaurant, just up the road in St John Street, but not before we had an amazing photo session with them in and around Smithfield Market, and then jumping into a cab and shooting off to the Millennium Bridge. Here are a few images from our day together – there are many many more! Looking forward to seeing you on your return guys! Have a fabulous honeymoon!

BIPP Professional Qualification

I am a relatively new member of the British Institute of Professional Photographers, and they are very keen on their members submitting photographs for assessment. Despite my having been a professional photographer for more than twenty-five years, I felt it was a good thing to do, and always worth being judged by one’s peers. So I am pleased and proud to say I am now a Licentiate of the BIPP, and here is the panel of images I submitted. There are twenty altogether – ten from various weddings over the last year, and ten from one wedding, Sarah and Jon’s from Hereford in September. The next step is to become an Associate, which I hope to do next spring.

Sir Clement Freud

I had the pleasure of photographing Sir Clement on several occasions during my time as an editorial photographer. He was dour but had a wicked sense of humour. Of course, he was best known for his wonderful contributions to ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ the Radio 4 ‘antidote to panel games’. Very much missed. Although in the credit here it says he was photographed in his home, I think this shot was done in the House of Commons. I photographed several MPs there, including Edwina Curry and Paddy Ashdown. Over the years I was also lucky enough to photograph John Major, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, usually at their homes. One of the writers I worked with was Alistair Campbell, before he became press officer for the Blair administration.
