Once the basic functionality of a camera is mastered there’s no secret formula in making pictures. There’s a certain amount of pre-composed shots involved, however, I’m at my best when I go into an assignment without creating images in my head before I get there.

While working on Kris and Marisa’s big day in Norwich I realised the confetti was forgotten. Immediately I joked and made everyone laugh with the idea of keeping those smiles beaming.
I noticed the cobbled streets in Elm Hill were covered with leaves, so I suggested we use them as a substitute. It was great fun and it paved the way for a relaxed atmosphere that flowed throughout the day.
