#Kingston Blount Point To Point Pictures

This afternoon I travelled a short journey up the road to the Point to Point races at Kingston Blount.

I took a different camera to the one I usually use, a Fujifilm X-Pro 1. It is quite different to use compared to my usual Canon EOS 5D Mk3 system but due to it’s size you can become more inconspicuous and blend into the crowd better and still achieve professional results.

As with all of my work I like to tell the story, capturing the detail, the behind the scenes, the overall picture and people involved in the day and this can be achieved due to the discreet nature of the X- Pro 1. Its not as fast at focusing as my Canon gear but is a great camera to use for photo journalism.

I met several lovely people today and promised to put some images on my blog and Facebook page soon. Please visit my Facebook page to see a small selection of images. Please LIKE my Facebook page to then receive a notification when I post the other images later this week.

Heidi and Brendan’s sneaky peek of their #wedding in lovely #Cornwall!

Last weekend Jack and I travelled to Cornwall to shoot the wedding of Heidi and Brendan in the village of Budock Water, near Falmouth where I grew up. I have known Heidi for many years and it was a pleasure to be part of their big day.

Their day was a perfect mix of coastline and countryside and we even managed to pop down to the local beach where the two of them got engaged for some pictures. Heidi and Brendan got married in St. Budock Church where I got married last year.

The reception was held at the family stables with tea and cake served to the guests on arrival before the champagne reception later in the day. The stables were all cleaned out and bunting hung from the doors and rafters giving it a vintage charm. During the tea and cake Heidi and Brendan had organised a Bucking Bronco and even had a go themselves. Guests were also entertained by a bouncy castle, sumo wrestling suits for those who fancied a wrestle and a magician who wowed the guests with his balloon swallowing!

So without further ado here are a few pictures of Heidi and Brendan’s big day…..
