This beach. This girl. That light.

To me this session is everything and represented me saying goodbye to the place call home and starting pastures new. Taken just a few days before I left my sweet home town and followed my heart to Spain. As an artist I feel it is important to take time out and shoot solely for yourself, I think its important for your self development and inner contentment. I try to take personal images as much as posible fine tuning my art and honing the skills I have come to develop. That means working a long side a film lab, talking to them about how you can take your work to the next level and then  listening and acting on what you learn.

As a wedding photographer sometimes you don’t have as much time as you like to experiment whilst taking photographs at a wedding so its necessary to make time to practice. I love that film photography makes you work, it forces you to strive for perfection in what you do and allows you to constantly be learning. I love sharing my knowledge with other too helping individuals find their own voice as an artist, a photographer and seeing them develop. Since creating Illuminated Collective a European Fine Art and Film Photography workshop my awareness for self development has become prevalent and I can see how much we can all learn from each other.

I am so pleased that I have joined again with Jessie Thomson and Amy Bowley to curate the next Illuminated Workshop which will be held in my new home town in Spain this September. The workshop has been designed to help develop yourself as an artist, learn the skill of film photography and finding your own niche in sea of wedding photographers. This retreat will be taught over two days and boast beautiful styled sessions, one to one talks with the mentors and gorgeous surroundings. If you would like to join us in this experience visit here.

Fine Art Wedding Photographer | Gower Peninsula U.K.

This is Matt and Steph two sweet friends on mine. They got married in the beautiful Gower Peninsula a few months ago and I recently joined them for their post wedding shoot where we spent time walking, laughing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Matt and Steph had the most perfect of D.I.Y. weddings filled with much love and laughter so we wanted to reiterate the same feel throughout the shoot we did together. Stephanie herself is a wedding and portrait photographer so having a good record f their day was very important to her and I was honoured to be asked to photograph her and her new husband. The corn field made such a great back drop with the gorgeous golden tones that where so perfect with this film, I love my Nikon F100 so much it really is my favourite camera… I hope you enjoy looking through these photographs just as much as me, Steph and Matt do!

Hello lovelies, I hope everyone is doing perfectly well on this sunny morning! We have such exciting news that we are launching another Illuminated Collective fine art wedding and styling workshop 🙂 this one day workshop will offer much the same as the last one but with a few added extra’s including motivational talks with practicals tips from Christian and Erica of UK Film Lab and the lovely Sara Russell from Wedding Sparrow.

Sara is also create the whole aesthetic for the day and having full creative input so we can offer each attendee the best fine art styling around, we will be collaborating with Amy of Bo Boutique a master of floral styling… together I am sure they will create wonders!

Both myself and my fellow partner in crime Britt Spring, will be mentoring and lending a hand to all those in attendance during the styled shoot part of the day too. I will be focusing on couple styling and sharing my knowledge on how I use film during a wedding day whilst Britt will be more focused on styling single female models which comes in very useful for those shooting editorials, portraits and brides.

We have created the day to both inspire and educate those who are new to film photography and wanting to extend their services. Film photography is becoming so popular once again with aesthetically driven brides who have a keen eye for beautiful organic images and we want to help everyone in attendance to appeal to those brides more by building strong portfolios.

We will also be sending each attendee home with a luxe goody bags of treats including invaluable notes from UK Film Lab, Sara, Flourish and Prosper and many more.

The workshop will be held in Norfolk, UK on the September 18th 2014. For more information and to book email illuminatedcollective@gmail.com

Below is a reminder of some of the beautiful styling we have created in the past featured on Wedding Sparrow today… (full list of vendors below)
