The 2016 Round-Up: Music & Portraits & Things

Seeing as I went ahead and did an absolutely mammoth wedding round-up blog for this year, it only seemed right and fair to show you a few of my favourites from my various other photo & design adventures.

This year has been a brilliant year of tinkering. It’s been a year of working with lots of awesome clients who trust you implicitly to go a bit rogue and get your creative on and ohmygosh I love them for it. (Y’know, the kind of folk who don’t bat an eyelid when you’re running around using a pint glass / coloured knitting needles / trees as a creative filter. Those ones.) I’ve travelled all over, fallen in love with SNAP Photography Festival, painted faces and had far too much fun running around with some of my favourite photographers and musicians.

Now, with no further ado, here we go…

EP design for the lovely Emily Mae Winters, followed later in the year by an album shoot which may have involved a paddling pool. In November. Go check out her Facebook page for album updates!

The time I ran around as an official snapper (super fit low-vis blue tabard and all) at Shrewsbury Folk Festival. If you’re looking for an awesome music festival to take your family to (or just to go to for funsies!) I can’t recommend this one enough.

When SNAP Photography Festival was everything I hoped it would be and more. Photographers, if you want to join one of the best communities of creative folk in the known universe, go give the SNAP website a visit!
