State Opening of Parliament 2014

After the rehearsal the real thing. The challenge every year is to get new shots as I’m standing in the same places, watching a meticulously planned ceremony that hasn’t changed for many a year. Usually it’s the people around the edges that make for interesting pictures.


State Opening Rehearsal 2014

Trying to catch up here with a few of the more interesting jobs of late..


Monarchy, skeletons, footballers, suits, musicians and strippers, a busy May.

Yep, bit of everything this month, at least a couple of the jobs merit their own edit and post when I get time, but in the meantime here’s a few faves from the 14,000+ frames I’ve shot this month (not including a big file called New York on my desktop which has yet to be edited!). Commissioned shots from the state opening of Parliament, a nike installation, some classical pianists and of the new England football strip in the changing rooms at Wembley before their game last Weds. Oh, and a ‘burlesque’ dancer from an entertaining one-off event at the Old Vic Tunnels under Waterloo.

An excuse with the Will and Kate baby shenanigans to dig out one of my fave shots from the Royal Wedding day – got a really great set of pictures that day, which I should have done something with by now! will put some more up when get round to it.

One of the more memorable commissions of the last 20 years with great access shooting in the House of Lords, for the House of Lords.
