I love to photograph people. I love to capture a little of their character in each picture.

I've been photographing weddings for over 20 years, and during that time my style has moved on with the technology. These days my style would probably be called "photojournalist", but I like to mix a bit of traditional in with it.

A saturday afternoon

I can’t remember when a new bit of photography kit has got me out of the house just to drive around and take photos. Well the X-T1 did that this weekend! And here’s what I found, driving around Essex. All taken with the Fuji X-T1 with the 18-55mm f2.8-4 lens.
