It’s all very exciting!

July 6, 2009

I know that I have been a little absent from blogging in the last couple of weeks so I thought I would update you on why I have been so ‘quiet’ and why there will be lots coming in the next few weeks.

There has been a secret project going on in this house, my new logo and branding. It’s nearing completion, so you won’t have to wait much longer to have a peek. 

This means my website will be getting a bit of a new look too. In the next few days the pages will be changing and I have lots more to add on there as well as some new gallery pictures. It’s changing everyday in little ways, as I pull it all together. Then in a few weeks it should have a complete make over with the new logo. So keep your eyes peeled!

In the same vein my blog will be getting a new make over and new address, all will be revealed on here, and all your favourites from this site will move to the new blog.

Why you might ask? Well this one is really restricting the size of the photos that I can post on it and I need something that I can customise in my new style. I also want to develop the information of fantastic suppliers that I know and trust to provide you with exceptional service and quality.

In addition to all of these changes, I will be ordering new stationary, and new products to offer my clients so there will be lots to show here.

As if all this wasn’t enough I have also been meeting with a local poet, who writes bespoke poetry for any ocassion and we are developing  an exciting new wedding poetry service, so that you can say all that you want to, in a really special and personal way. While we get the website up and running, if you are interested in the poetry, please drop me a line.

So as you can it’s been really busy here and in the next few weeks I have 6 weddings and 2 portraits sessions so I won’t be quiet on here for much longer!

In the meantime because you all know by now I don’t post without a picture I would like to re introduce you to Edward. You might remember him from one of the early posts on the blog, he wears the coolest rattle shoes. Well check him out now! HOW much has he grown and just how cheeky is that face!!

Interview with Murray Newlands

July 2, 2009

I’m really excited this week, there is so much going on here! (more of that to come later)

Murray Newlands, famous blogger and affiliate marketer, has just published his interview with me, as a Cambridge Wedding Photographer, over at his website MurrayNewlands.com.

Murray is taking the blogging and Twitter world by storm, you can read more about Murray in Clickbooths interview with Murray Newlands.

Read the full interview where I talk about my blogging as one of the Cambridge Wedding Photographers.

Because I just can’t bring myself to blog without a picture, here is just a little sneaky peek preview of a STUNNING Cambridge Wedding Venue where I will be shooting a wedding in a few weeks.

UK [b] School GTG 29 April 2009

May 5, 2009

I’m a bit behind with my blogging so this is a little late. (Sorry all!)

Last Wednesday saw the first get together of the UK [b] School contingent.  We met at the Broadlands Hotel near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. This was a midway point as we are all very widely spread throughout the UK.

For those photographers amongst my readers who haven’t come across the [b] school…. The [ b ] School is all about helping photographers connect with one another on line and in life. Perhaps the photographers in your area aren’t real keen on helping each other out, well… we are looking to change that with the [ b ] School by helping you connect with other like minded photographers, check it out.

It was great to meet:

Stewart Randall

Rebecca Honeywell

Peter and Laura Lawson

Susie Lawrence

James Pearson

Stuart James

Here we all are:

All of us have a common approach to sharing knowledge and advice with each other. So as you can imagine at our first meet up there was lots to talk about. Many of us having travelled a great distance, we made the most of it with a full 4 hours of non stop chatter about photography.

James, Rebecca and Peter and Laura brought some albums with them, from a variety of different suppliers so it was great to see not only each others work but also share feedback on the many different album suppliers, here’s a peek of the album viewing.

The album is a stunning Kiss Album

We also shared a number of great resources and other album providers: (Guys if I have missed any please let me know and I will add them in)

I am in the process of organising a UK [b] Scool trip to Blackpool for late September early October. We are intending on having some speakers and then going out to have some fun with our camera’s along the sea front and amongst the bright lights and fairground no doubt. If you would like to come and join us please get in touch. For those of you who are already members of the [b]school I will be posting details in the UK Forum, shortly.
