One of the lovely things with photographs is going back to look at them and rediscovering all those partially forgotten moments. As well as the usual social photography there have also been a few personal projects and a significant move towards black & white photographs. With that in mind here is a round-up of some of my favourites from the previous year.
Victoria & Gary's wedding was an opportunity to get some dramatic film-noir style shots:
And I've also been honing my skills in photographing some of the wedding preparation details, here are examples of the rings and the shoes:

I've started what I've dubbed my mini-people series, a fun play with scale and perspective. This one is 'data mining':

And I'm excited to say that I will have a book (self-publish) ready soon, landscapes that blend fine art with a touch of social documentary, here's a teaser image:
