I recently took some profile photos for Elisa, who has released a great music video, ‘The Wind’.

The song was written by her equally musical husband – who also pretty much produced the music video I gather. And he plays guitar… I photographed the wedding of Elisa’s sister a couple of years ago – at which Joe played guitar and Elisa sang of course!
Check out her website and go see one of her gigs.
Photo info – the indoor shots here were a 2 or 3-flash set-up (taken at the Pizza on the Park jazz club). Outdoors was available light (a lovely hazy, diffused afternoon).
More images inside…

Currently catching up on editing from various photo shoots (some cool pics to come soon). Meanwhile, been meaning to let people know about various other businesses I’ve come across recently:
Isis are florists who have branched out into event organisation (expecially weddings). I met them at a recent wedding show and took some quick snaps for them, see their blog:

Quite by chance, wandered into a little staionery shop with my friend Julie to look for a gift for her little girl. Got talking to the nice Aussie shopkeeper, showed her some pics on my iPhone, she showed me her exquisite wedding stationery. Lovely thick card. Can’t really appreciate from their website (so go visit them), but here’s an example: http://www.pallmallstationers.co.uk/printing/classic_ottoman.html

And at an earlier wedding show, this guy Alexis was playing great party rock/pop numbers. He has a band too, check him out: http://www.cheesecakeband.com/

Michelle and Colin won the bottle of fine champagne from the Unique Wedding Show 3 weeks ago. Drawn by the ladies at the Cake Magic stand. They have exquisite detail on their cake decorations BTW.

The wedding show at the London Club golf course last weekend – Teresa won the wine vouchers. (I decided it’s easier to post vouchers than meet to deliver a bottle even if less glamorous…). The ladies at Isis Flowers drew this. They also offer planning for weddings and other functions, check them out.

Congratulations all!

Come see me this coming Sunday 28th March, at Grove House, Roehampton University, London.
I’ll have my sample albums on view – from gorgeous Jorgensen albums to stylish storybooks. These need to be seen and handled ‘in the flesh’ to really appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into making these heirlooms of the future.
I will be offering a show special for bookings made after meeting me at the show – time limit will apply of course! Plus there will be a prize draw (bookings not necessary) – maybe the usual bottle of champagne or perhaps something else…
Hope to see you there!

I think I’ve realised part of the reason we find young kids so endearing – it’s that wide-eyed look of wonder and fascination at the world.

‘Only those who can look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder.’ Eberhard Arnold.

Young Grace here is two years old and well-named – she is a remarkably serene little girl and utterly delightful.

…and here are some shots I took of the father of the aforementioned young William. Meet Charlie Round-Turner, pianist extraordinaire. He has played for and with, some big names (another big tour coming up). His jazz trio have brought their classy sound to many an event over the years. Check out his site. A few more shots inside – click the jump below…

I was using a multi-flash set-up on most of these shots, but this simple window-light shot is still pretty nice.

And now, I’d like to introduce William. He’s about 3 months old. Isn’t he charming?

BTW, his father’s name is, drum roll… Charlie Round-Turner.

No, not me, the other Charlie R-T! My cousin and his lovely wife live only about 10 minutes from me. We are related of course, though I can’t quite remember how closely. He is a very talented pianist – but I’ll tell you more about the musical Charlie a little later. Meanwhile here are a few more pics of the latest Round-Turner (and one with his wonderful Mum).

World Cancer Day is 4th February. So for the rest of this month, I thought it appropriate to donate £5 to Cancer Research for every £50 voucher purchased from me. These can be used for portrait frame and album products, or to contribute towards wedding photography services and albums. (I’ll be donating something anyway).

So, buy someone special some photography vouchers for Valentine’s Day – or just for the sake of it! Or just donate directly.

Mount Pond, Clapham Common at night. I was looking at the sign that read “Danger – thin ice!” when I saw two people walking back from the island in the middle. I thought to myself, ‘I’m lighter than average and if I hold my breath…’  😉  I gave a few good stomps on the ice – it’s SOLID.
Here’s a shot i took towards the ever-present hot pie sandwich stand on Windmill Drive, Clapham Common.
