I have chosen a few photographs from recent shoots, which caught my eye.
Some of the images have had Photoshop processes applied to them just for fun, you can see the originals by clicking on the links below each entry. These include weddings, family portrait photography and other special occasions. I hope you like them.
Syon Park’s Open Day – Today
I am currently at Syon Park for their Open Day – a busy afternoon meeting many couples and discussing their upcoming wedding day. As usual many ask about the Leica cameras I use and how I shoot without flash even on a winters evening, the solution is the Noctilux lens a marvel of engineering and precision glass which means that if you can see, I can take atmospheric photographs and preserve all the ambience without blasting the guests with flash. In this age when everyone shoots on similar equipment with huge zoom lenses, its good to stand apart and offer work that does have a unique look on small discreet high quality cameras.
So many great reviews on Google – I thought we should share one…
Review from Google +
“Douglas was amazing!
We cannot speak highly enough of Douglas. We got married in January so the majority of our wedding was after dark and Douglas didn’t use a flash once – which was one of the main reasons we chose him. His documentary style photography is EXACTLY what we wanted, he captured the day exactly how it was and for the beauty it delivered. He got the glow of the candles and the warmth of the day and private moments that we didn’t even know happened.
We initially got in touch with Douglas because he has photographed a wedding at the Gherkin previously and we wanted someone who was familiar with the space as it isn’t a venue we could frequently visit. We knew as soon as we met him that he was the right photographer for us, he is a person who is passionate about taking photos and that shines through in his work and him as a person. He was laid back and subtle throughout our day and has a cracking sense of humour that fit in perfectly with our north/south wedding. We also had a team of two videographers who Douglas worked with extremely well ensuring that they got the shots they needed as well as capturing his own – that was priceless to us.
The cost was very reasonable and worth every penny and more! We will cherish our photos for years to come and can’t thank Douglas enough for capturing our day so perfectly. Would 100% recommend him, look no further!”
