Turning up a room in the maths department on campus with no idea what to expect, carrying just what I could fit in my backpack, I took some photos of Hannah. It was a fun afternoon, if a little challenging with the limitations!
There are essentially two completely different sets here, possibly should be two different posts but instead I've just separated them within this one. Another successful shoot with Rachel.
The black, the white...
Some photos from when my littler sister, Meg, got married to Rob in York. It was a fantastically unplanned day, keeping me on my toes and the whole process interesting, but I'd never expect anything less from Meg. Plenty of colour, an impromptu stop off by the river and in the museum gardens, the ceremony, a drizzly open top bus journey, some great food at Patisserie Valerie and a lovely night do... what more could you want?
Congratulations to both of you.
My friend, Jess, got married recently, to Ben... and I was there to photograph it.
It was a pretty perfect day, despite the typical Mancunian weather, and I've never seen things go so effortlessly (or it seemed that way at least!) to plan. So congratulations to Ben and Jess.
One of my more interesting shoots - she did well to relax in front of a group of youths leering and shouting... and, again, a first time model. Shirlie has since become one of my favourite people - if she hadn't moved to Glasgow I'm sure we'd now have many, many more sets to share by now.
I was invited along to shoot her graduation ceremony... and everyone had a grand time!
A shoot with first time model, Laura. It's amazing what you can do with a grey day, a couple of outfits and a beautiful face...

A new model in a casual setting... and look how well it turned out...
