Giving A Little Back
31st January 2018 - 0 comments
In: Blog


I have a lot of plans for 2018. Many are ways to expand my business, but one is my way of giving back. I’ve always supported local charities where possible by donating free photo sessions etc for raffles and draws. This is all well and good (and something I will continue to do), but I want to do something a bit more consistent.

3 Reasons Why I May Not Be The Portrait Photographer For You
29th January 2018 - 0 comments
In: Blog


Photography is such a broad brush, and even narrowing down the portrait genre, there is still plenty of scope for variety. Every portrait photographer will have their own audience, and fans, but it won’t be every one. I know from experience I’m not a good fit for some clients, and some clients aren’t a good fit for me, so I thought I’d help us both out and explain why this may be the case….

There’s so much to talk about when Boudoir photography is concerned, from thinking just about having a photo session, through to the positive effects this amazing experience leaves on the ladies that take part.

Georgie is very relaxed and enjoys being in front of the camera, and it showed during this recent photo session with her around the Gorleston Pier area. Rather than writing about the ins and outs of what happened, I thought I would share my thoughts on another aspect of this photo shoot.

Fun with Fredwears
25th October 2017 - 0 comments


I first discovered Fredwears on Instagram, and was delighted to discover that they were local to me. I liked what I saw in regard to the images and content they were posting. It was while perusing their timeline that the idea of working with such a local business first dropped into my mind.
I’m a portrait photographer specialising in family photography, and here was a business catering for younger children, it seemed like a very good match for me.

The Lloyds

I hear this phrase time and time again. “I can’t remember the last time we had a family photo session.”
Time will continue to tick. We can’t stop it, or slow it down. I’m always amazed how quickly days, months and years flash past. Babies turn to children then into young adults, and then…..yes, they fly the nest. So many memories, so many good times. Don't miss these moments!

3 Life Lessons Photography Has Taught Me
15th April 2017 - 0 comments
In: Blog
Learning to be a photographer is hard enough. Years of practice, consuming knowledge and experience, all to be the best you can be with a camera in your hand. Couple this with learning to run a business, it becomes hugely challenging. A challenge I love.
In all honestly this has (and still is) the hardest part for me. Naturally creative, but not so gifted with running a business...but it is amazing to see how, when things seem impossible, it has given me some eureka moments. And fairly big ones too, which have directly benefitted me both creatively and as a person.
I thought I'd share three with you, because these lessons are easily transferable, and totally relevant to everyone.
