Change to Law regarding public space photography
04th July 2015
***Update*** - the EU voted against implementing these laws - so we won! Very good news indeed!

Important - the EU are looking to change the law on the use of photographs taken in public places, meaning that permission would always have to be sort from the architect/artist prior to use (and that includes holiday snaps you take and post to Facebook, not just the work I do). If this goes ahead, it will have a disastrous affect on my business, together with all other photographers, as it will not only impact on my gallery, but weddings too that feature any building or statue or anything that is not within the grounds of the private estate where the wedding is taking place. I have signed the petition to try and stop this, and ask for your help by signing it too. Thank you.

Using Film
30th June 2015
Have an old film camera kicking about? Why not start using it again - film is becoming very popular again, and it's easy to see why! The 'in-look' for processing digital files, especially street photography, is to add the film look to your image. Why not save time and shoot on film! Plus, it's a great way of improving your photography skills, even with your digital camera. Read more to find out how!

Photo Assignment and Holiday
25th June 2015
Hi Photography fans! I will be on a photo assignment on the south coast of England during July, so taking the opportunity to tag in a bit of a holiday too. As a result, please note the following dates:

The studio and gallery in Poynton will close from 6th July and re-open on 21st July.

You may still order from the online galleries during that period, but orders won't be started until my return and will take up to 14 days for delivery from that date.

You can still email during that period if you have any wedding enquiries, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can (I know internet access will be limited during this period).
