Claire Pettibone’s Romantique Collection

I had the pleasure of photographing the launch of Claire Pettibone’s new bridal collection called ‘Romantique’ at Blackburn Couture Bridal Boutique in Blackheath.  The collection is stunning and I fell in love with all of the gowns!  The Romantique collection is a mixture of a little moroccan villa, a touch of English garden and timeless vintage.

Lifestyle fine art group and 1-2-1 workshops

I’m thinking of running lifestyle fine art group and 1-2-1 workshops in September. The workshop will involve how to create, develop and style beautiful fine art lifestyle images with the use of natural light. I will be on hand to show you how to see the beauty and light as well as shooting your camera in manual mode. The workshop will be limited to just 5 delegates per workshop costing £150.

There will be two group workshops, one will be on location capturing the beautiful environment that is all around us from flowers to stones to buildings and more. The other will be at my home studio and will be hands on still life styling like flowers, leaves, stationery etc and will be at my home studio.

If you are interested please contact me indicating which workshop you would be interested in
