Laura and Mark, Engagement, Compton Verney

A bit of an impromptu post here. I've had this for a while but I've never been able to get around to editing. I headed down to the tremendous art gallery Compton Verney in the West Midlands a few weeks to meet with Laura and Mark for a chat about their wedding in July.

It was a beautiful day and I was truly blown away by the location so we thought we might as well have a little engagement shoot for a bit of fun :)

To make it more fun, I'd only brought along an 85mm lens. I set myself the targets of getting the art work and interiors in and we took the shots in as short time as possible :)

Here's what we came up with :)

Av feat. Manak-e - Tension, music photography

A few months ago I traveled down to London for a short shoot with AV Anish for his up coming releases for VIP records. The first release 'Tension' is out now on itunes:
I love the art work they put together for it using one from Manak-e we shot in the studio a while ago too. It's great when graphic designers get a free run with things, I like seeing the images used in different ways that I'd never even think of.

Pics from the original shoot and the released music video for 'Tension' under the cut:

My trip to the circus - Circus starr, commercial photography

Sometimes I get to do some really cool stuff. Wedding photography lets me meet a variety of interesting people but a few weeks ago, when I was asked to shoot two circus shows for Circus Starr, the interesting people level was cranked to 11.

Circus starr is an amazing charity organization that raises funds for local charities while offering free seats at their world-class show to thousands of disadvantaged children.

The show features a range of different types of acrobatics. I didn't get to see much of it but what I did see was amazing with some death defying stunts which I wouldn't mind learning myself!
