Rock Choir at Watford Colleseum!

What a fabulous night with Rock Choir !!! A thousand smiling faces, each one forgetting the real world for a while and instead singing with everything they have ! The power of music is truly inspirational as are the choir leaders who effortlessly transmit their years of music theory and training into the hearts, minds and souls of those simply wanting to be a part of something beautiful and uplifting, not only for themselves but for those fortunate enough to hear them.

I hope you love looking through the pix and if anyone would like a print of any of the images I am doing a special rate for Rock Choir members, £10 for an 8″x6″ instead of the normal price of £15. Larger sizes available.

Top tips from a Top DJ!

5 Reasons Why Picking the Right DJ is a Most Important Aspect of Your Wedding Day

1. To Entertain your Guests

Here’s an interesting fact for you. 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment. With that in mind, it goes without saying that picking the right DJ is imperative to the success of your wedding. If your wedding cake didn’t arrive, if your car broke down or if your florist got your order wrong, none of it would have an impact on your guests’ enjoyment. But if you chose the wrong DJ and your evening reception was a flop, you can guarantee it’d be not only ‘noticed’ but remembered and talked about for a very long time to come.

2. To Make your Announcements Special

Just because someone is a DJ, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have any microphone skills. Professional Wedding DJs often have extensive training to ensure they deliver the best speeches and announcements and make every bride and groom feel like the stars of the day (which, of course, they are). A mumbled introduction for your first dance, or a half-hearted attempt at waving you off at the end of the night just isn’t good enough. Some professional DJs specialise in ‘Grand Entrances’, giving brides and grooms the red-carpet treatment they deserve. Some are even able to  work with you on choreographed dances and special surprises throughout the reception. Hiring a confident and professional DJ is imperative if you’re looking to have the wedding of your dreams.

3. To Play the Right Music

Some so-called ‘professional’ DJs will arrive at your reception with pre-recorded music, making it impossible for them to accept song requests. But it’s your special day, and as such, you should be able to have the music that you love. As well as taking song requests, some professional DJs allow you to create an online playlist prior to your wedding where you can choose all of your favourites (as well as all the songs you don’t want to be played). The last thing you want is a DJ who is only interested in playing his own choices … someone who is not at all concerned about the enjoyment of your guests or getting the dance floor full.

4. To Ensure Quality Equipment

A professional Wedding DJ will have a high quality sound system and state-of-the-art lighting which is both stylish and modern. Equally as important, he’ll have a back up in the event that something goes wrong. If you’ve spent thousands of pounds on creating the right look and ambience for your wedding day, you don’t want it to be ruined by a DJ with shoddy, unreliable and out-dated equipment.

5. To Give you the Wedding of your Dreams

If you want your evening reception and your entertainment to be professional and personalised, and you want all of your guests to have a fantastic time, you really can’t afford to scrimp on your Wedding DJ. Do your homework, ask the right questions and check every DJs credentials before booking. This is your special day and you only have one chance to get it right.

Emmy Award Winner Janie Bryant

I had the pleasure to photograph Emmy Award Winner Janie Bryant today at Hix in Belgravia. Janie won her award for designing the costumes for the hit American TV series, Mad Men. She has recently designed a line of lingerie for Maidenform and was in London to promote her fabulous new product. Not only was she more than happy to pose for photographs with all attending but she was also totally charming and very relaxing company ! Another SUPERBO day with my trusty camera !!!!

Welcome to my new web site

Welcome to my new web site which I hope you’ll think is FABULOUS !!!!!

To celebrate the arrival of my new website I am offering a portrait shoot voucher for anyone who ‘likes’ me on Facebook.

The aim of my photography is to provide beautiful memories that’ll make you sigh for years to come !

With the advent of digital photography there has been a feeling that photography has somehow become disposable with images kept on disc or phones but rarely displayed and admired.

I was asked over the weekend which camera would provide “brilliant” pictures. I always advise people that giving someone an aeroplane will not make them a pilot and to treat themselves to a photography book or course as the results will speak for themselves. I’ve been a professional photographer for over 10 years and photographed several hundred weddings and portraits and still discover (and remain hungry and passionate to do so !) new ways of capturing beautiful images.
