Clients often ask me, ' what do you do when you are not taking photographs for a living? Well, I tell them, I take photographs for pleasure! Photography is a very practical discipline and not something you become good at by leaving your camera gathering dust in its bag! I nearly always have a camera with me no matter what I am doing or where I am going. I like to record things that interest me and keep a photographic record of my family life. How many times have you often heard someone say, 'oh I wish I had a camera with me to photograph that'! Although smart phones have now changed that to some extent, at present they are still very limited in their technical ability. I recently shot some record and PR images for my local variety group of their version of 'Oliver' based on the classic Oliver Twist movie. I shot most of it in black and white to add to that grungy feel that most of us associate with the movie. Here are some of the images from the shoot.
