Editorial Photography in Rutland and Stamford

I have been busy doing editorial work in Rutland, Stamford and Peterborough for Local Living magazines. Shooting editorial can be extremely varied – I am constantly on the go and keep discovering new places. One great discovery for shopping and eating in Leicestershire is Wistow Village (http://www.wistow.com/). Another one is a small goat farm – Ganders Goats who produce their own ice cream and soaps! (http://gandersgoat.com/), met one of Oakham’s PCs – Joe Lloyd and visited three great bakeries: Rutland Cake company in Oakham Enterprise Park (http://rutlandcakes.co.uk/), Hambleton Bakery in Exton (http://www.hambletonbakery.co.uk/) and Baines Bakery in Uppingham (http://www.bainesbakery.co.uk/home-page). Here are some of my favourite shots..

Wedding photography

I have just been asked to choose some of my favourite 2016 wedding photos for a wedding supplement in Rutland Living. I flicked through my 2016 galleries and found it so hard to choose. Each wedding I shot was special in it’s own way – I travelled to some amazing locations, met so many lovely people. Here is a very small selections of shots I love from my 2016 weddings. Shot at Normanton Church on Rutland Water, Stamford Town Hall, The William Cecil, Hambleton Hall, Greetham Valley, Rockingham Castle, Uppingham School and more..
