I’ve had the pleasure of two recent shoots with this beautiful family, one in the studio and one at Sandringham. This is a small selection of the shots which they received, and I’m reliably informed, loved!
It was brilliant to be working at Cley Windmill again for my first wedding of 2018. And it was my first outside wedding at this fab venue. Lisa and Graham were a real pleasure to be with and the ceremony was extremely relaxed and fun. Set off of course by the great location and good weather. What’s not to like?
It was a very exciting couple of days both exhibiting at, and taking the official photographs for, Turn the Page Artists Book Fair 2018 which took place in Norwich at The Forum recently. The quality of the work from all of the book artists and their friendliness and readiness to interact with each other (and the photographer!) was great. Can’t wait to apply for next year’s event now.
I was recently extremely fortunate to be offered the opportunity to photograph a very old and very beautiful document in preparation for it’s exhibition in the United States at The Yale Center for British Art (yes, THAT Yale!). The document was the heraldic pedigree of the Paston family and it dates from the latter part of the 16th century. The Paston’s were at that time one of the most prominent families in East Anglia and some of Norfolk’s leading landowners. It was gloriously hand painted and lettered by Robert Cooke: a lot of the colours are still very vivid and some of the individual coats of arms and the elements within them are stunning. The icing on the cake is that a number of my photographs made it into the beautifully produced 589 page exhibition catalogue called The Paston Treasure which is now available for sale – you need a bit of a mortgage to buy a copy but I was very fortunately sent a complementary copy as a contributor (it’s here on Amazon if you’re really interested). In a few weeks, the exhibition will also be at Norwich Castle… Needless to say, very chuffed about the whole thing…
Sandra and Vince got married at the ever wonderful Cley Windmill. A wedding here is also an excuse to visit Cley beach, which is only five minutes away in the car. Two glorious aspects of one great venue. These two really entered in to the spirit of being on the beach even though it was a little cool and turning rainy. Love it!
