Lovely bloke is Mr Wakeman – but he plays the piano with his eyes firmly shut! Below are a few extracts from a week of being the official photographer for the Canterbury Festival. Willard White, McChrystal & Ogden, Begbie sculptures and Stacey Kent to follow on Saturday. Technical note -Wakeman, softbox and second flash off-camera; Begbie 2 x Speedlites and Pocketwizards; everything else, stage lighting, mainly 800 ISO.

We had a great day of winter wedding photography training (ok it’s actually autumn) at Mount Ephraim near Faversham – five newcomers to the training programme plus four from Jason Dodd’s camera club. Jason and I split the groups into two and exposed the photographers to our different techniques and shared experiences. Strong sunshine and shadow meant selective use of off-camera flash plus high ISO for the interiors of the church and main house.
Mount Ephraim is a venue that I’m proud to recommend and am delighted to be working with them. If you’re interested in joining us on the next course please do get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org.
