Selected work from various commissions.

This post is an overview of the prestige events and weddings work I’ve been commissioned to do over the past couple of years.
These types of commission is one of the mainstays of my commercial photographic output. Clients have told me that the reason they ask for me is that my work is (to quote) ‘like fresh reportage’. I present people in the context of their relationships, their emotions, and their environment. It is why this type of work fits with my wider portrait and editorial practice.
The selection of images you see here are from private wedding commissions, and for brands that frequently hold prestige events such as the luxury watchmaker Breguet and The National Theatre. There are also images from corporate and governmental events such as those for the Department For International Trade. Also included are shots from product launches for technology brands and cultural organisations.
I keep things fresh with this kind of work, so am always looking to capture the unique character of the event and the people and/or brands that are part of it. Ihis is achieved by focusing on ‘quieter’ relational moments alongside the main stories and key people. After all these events provide memories, even the most corporate ones. I also show the details of the event to give a real sense of being there.
Although I am really good with people, I tend to be as ‘invisible’ as possible at these events. I shoot discreetly and with a sensitivity to the environment and event. After all the attendees aren’t there to see or hear the photographer.
If I can help you with photography for your special event, I’m always happy to discuss what you want to capture. You can contact me via email here or call on +44 (0)7967 382342.
