Focus On Imaging 2008

Just returned from Focus On Imaging 2008 at the NEC in Birmingham.This is Europe's biggest annual imaging show for photographers & the image business and I was given a great honour as Spicer Hallfield, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of Wedding & Portrait presentation products used my images to show off their range of albums & frames.The show has over 32,000 visitors over 4 days & if its new in photography its on show at Focus.After a really busy few weeks,(when I am supposed to be quiet) this was a huge boost.The images are of the show stand, Martin Baynes MD & Jane & myself. Jane looks great (hate photos of me!!!).

James & Nicola's Wedding

One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is meeting new friends & great people and this wedding was no different.Both James & Nicola have a great sense of humor and to say James was happy to be married was an understatement.James is from the USA and and his family came over for the wedding & were amazed at the history behind both the church,Deane Parish in Bolton & Haigh Hall.Nicolas family traveled not quite as far from Bolton.A great wedding,fun guests & perfect weather all complimented by a fantastic sunset.Loads of great images at the wedding but have posted my faves.The lighting was great.

January Faves

Well that was January. I blinked & missed it, busy with Weddings,Portraits & redecorating the studio.Nearly finished the front (I think it looks great & passers by seem to agree). Had a few amazing weddings & met some great people as well, and have posted my fave images for you below.Hope you like.

First wedding was Kevin & Samantha's wedding at Kilhey Court Hotel.A great day Kevin was very nervous and Sam looked amazing.Next wedding was at Haigh Hall.This is a fantastic location for stunning photography.Matthew & Kate's wedding was really emotional,Kate's an event organiser so really made the day exactly as she wanted.Great speeches,great atmosphere.
