Me being me today, decided to create a bit of fun. so here's my moment of creation. got to admit you smile when you see this.

Photographing Weddings....erm not for me but......
I can confidently say that I leave photographing weddings to the experts..not to imply I cannot take a good picture..but there are people who are at the top of their game. So all the best and I wish them the best of luck........However I was recently asked to document through photographs a recent wedding evening. It was actually some commercial work as the client wanted to show the venue during the evening and into the night. My good friend, top photographer, competitor and thinks hes a comedian ;) Daniel Bownes also joined along to help out. Click Daniels name to link to his site...

So here is a couple of links to some of the shots I produced,there is some work from other photographers mainly Wedding photographers (their links are on the photographs). My shots are generally of the evening.

The Fairlawns at Aldridge is an awesome venue with super friendly staff ..if you don't believe me, go see them to discuss your important day. (not just saying it because they are a client) Seriously, if Carlsberg did wedding venues....

There's a good variety of different styles but all trying to capture the same all important subject.

Recent Commercial Work
Recent commercial work saw us work along side with the designers to produce a brochure for The Crusader Group. The Brochure was produced to display and highlight the companies services for the tender of a contract. Subsequently Crusader won the contract. I like to think we had an small part in contributing to this great news.

Below is an example of the 3 page brochure.

Saturday Night Commercial Work
Nothing better than enjoying your Saturday night photographing a Monopoly board. No I'm serious, I couldn't lose! In fact it was impossible as it's monopoly with a twist.

This forms part of a brochure for an Health & Safety company. will post the final copy once designers have completed the work.

I think its a fantastic idea when you actually look at the board in detail :)

For more information regarding the work please give me a shout :)
