Your Questions Answered.
I get asked plenty of questions by enquiring wedding couples about my services, and so I have finally gotten around to producing an FAQ sheet/Informational brochure which I hope will go towards answering a good many of those questions (though I'm sure you'll think of some new ones!).

Anyway, here it is, oh and please be aware that it's a 5MB file so may take a while to load depending on your connection.

Seagull Cafe.
Following the toddlers session, I took a stroll round the West End and returned to find the Hothouse magically transformed (gingham table cloths, spring flowers, pots of tea, biscuits and iced cup cakes) into a charming tea room, with top class entertainment to boot. We had comedy, singing, musical interludes and anecdotes to amuse and delight.

Clapping Song.
It felt a little strange the other day to be visiting More Music in the daytime after so many evenings just recently. The Thursday "Clapping Song" sessions for parents and toddlers was a very jolly time. The kids loved it, and their parents had some pretty big smiles too.

There was a wild wind blowing as I made my way over to Morecambe last night to catch an evenings rehearsal with the More Music Baybeat revellers, and some pretty wild blowin' to be heard in the Hothouse too!

Great to see so many youngsters in the group and all having a fun time by the look and sound of things.

Guitars A Go-Go!
It feels a bit like I've moved in to More Music this last couple of weeks, as last night I was back for the Monday night Hothouse Singers and the Guitar classes.

Silverdale shoot.
Saturday morning was rather fun this weekend. I was taking some family portraits for a neighbour of mine.

Not sure if this one will make the final selection, but I kinda like it, just as a goofing around type shot!

The Friday Night Project.
I was back at More Music in Morecambe on Friday evening to meet and photograph the youngsters who attend their Friday Night Project.

These guys love their rapping and MC'ing, and they were pretty good too!

Be your own pop idol!
I'd been thinking lately how much I love the classic format of the old 12" vinyl album covers and 7" 45's (sure sign I'm getting old!). Then I got to thinking wouldn't it be fun to do my own and offer it as a new portrait service?

I'm sure we can all think of someone who'd love one as a gift for a birthday, wedding, Chistmas present etc.
So if you fancy yourself as a Debbie Harry or a Bryan Ferry, get in touch, we'll have some fun and you'll get a unique framed portrait that'll amuse and tickle all your friends and family.
The portraits can be taken specially in a sitting with me, or if you'd like to surprise someone, send me an appropriate photo of them and we'll see what we can do with it!

Go on, you know you want to!

A little More Music
It was back to The Hothouse in Morecambe again on Thursday evening, this time for the 12-16 year olds band night. What a very cool bunch of kids!

Love this guitar!
