2012 for many it seems has been a bit of a naff year, and in many respect its been just that for me to but my photography business has taken strides in the right direction, and although those steps are relatively small I had no idea these steps would ever really happen. The Oz Family I had been a hobbyist photographer for many years and I’ve been lucky enough to have a varied amount of people, friends, family, photographers (known & unknown to me) compliment me on the pictures that …

It’s not often you get a late call up to shoot a wedding but that was the case with Mel and Tony’s wedding a couple of months back.

A very special day that we wanted to have precious memories of, and although I could have joined in with the days celebrations and shoot the proceedings as well I decided I wouldn’t because I wanted to enjoy the day without having to think about getting that all important shot. So who to give that responsibility to. Well we chose to ask my good friend, and fantastic photographer, Scot Baston …
