The best man's speech - Lucy and Will's Wedding


I got involved in wedding photography by being talked into being an official wedding photographer a few times by friends. Since everyone is always so happy with the results, and I rather enjoy it, I changed my policy, and started accepting commissions in 2003.

Fireworks over the Erasmus Lawn - Queens' May Ball 2003


For several years, I was commissioned to take photographs of Clare May Ball for publicity purposes. I've gone on to cover other balls, some of which are shown here. It's partly as a result of this experience that I tend to specialise in low-light photography.
