Here’s a fantastic example of the way wedding guests can ruin your big day, and miss most of it themselves.

This week I’ve been secreted away in a local studio working with four fantastic models on a workshop with the Royal Photographic Society. I’ve got a bit of a backlog of editing to do before I can sort out a full set from this event, but here’s one of my favourites from Thursday. The delightful […]
