Riga, Latvia Trip

Riga, Latvia Trip
This trip was beautiful! a four day holiday (what am I like with my four day holidays?!) in the historic city of Riga, Latvia. To be honest, every holiday we go on there seems to be some form of a sketch, be it with transport, or the blooming printer not working four hours before the flight when you need the boarding passes. However, this trip was very smooth, infact [...]

Canada / USA Trip

Canada / USA Trip
This trip started off as a holiday but ended up being a working trip which was fabulous! We drove so many miles! Got a speeding ticket! Stayed in a different hotel each night, so I guess it was like up market travelling! Our journey started off in Toronto. It was late when we got there and so after eating dinner we got an early night. We then woke up to this view.. [...]

Raindrops, Just Because…

Raindrops, Just Because...
Raindrops, Just Because is another instalment of my personal project where I capture and explore simplicity in the things around me. Today I chose raindrops, because they are beautiful. Pure and simple.. And mainly because it hasn't stopped belting it down all day. I like the sound of the rain beating on the windows. Especially when it's dark outside. It's a calming s[...]

Rome Trip

Rome Trip
A visit to Rome, it started off as a bargain but ended up costing a small fortune though I've returned feeling more rich. Rich with culture, rich with Italian flavours in my mouth, rich with memories of the warm sun enveloping me. A four day trip, a holiday, a chance to broaden the mind. Our journey started off in the capital city of Rome, we spent a few days there, s[...]

Iceland Trip

Iceland Trip
Iceland, one of the most interesting and inspiring places I've ever been too. It is so still, so calm. So, natural. It has to been seen to be taken in. I really can't do it justice with my photographs. The air is a little more inspiring there, the wind in my hair was too. I am a big fan of being a little different. I enjoy the odd sunbathing holiday but I'd much rathe[...]

Humber Bridge, Just Because…

Humber Bridge, Just Because...
The sunsets in the east are amongst the most beautiful I've ever seen. A couple of nights ago, as I was driving home from Hull I caught a glimpse of this glorious sunset. I chased it as far as the roads would let me before climbing out of my trusty Polo. I just had to stop and take it in. Now I know theres clouds in the sky but to see beautiful sunsets is a truly love[...]

Frozen garden, Just because…

Frozen garden, Just because...
Last week I started a project, a project name "Just Because..." it gives me the opportunity, a reason (though ironically it's for no reason whatsoever) to take photographs for me. To harness what exactly it is that I love about photography. The frost is quite poignant from this little shoot because, like a photograph, everything really is frozen in time. That is until[...]

Bramhall Park, Just Because…

Bramhall Park, Just Because...
It's sunny & it's Sunday so I thought I'd take my camera for a walk... it isn't very often at all that I take photographs for myself, just because. So today is my first day of a personal project called "Just Because..." where I am going to aim to get myself out for no reason other than just because and shoot some lovely photos. Today I chose to head to Bramhall Pa[...]

Not So Sunny Sunrise

Not So Sunny Sunrise
A couple of mornings ago, I decided to wake up at 03:45 to catch the sunrise. When i'm not working as a wedding photographer in Cheshire, I like to explore and capture other beautiful things in life. I had been thinking about shooting a sunrise for a few days however, despite my planning, it didn't go to plan. I had researched my location, the time of sunrise and weat[...]
