for about 8 years now. I first met Victor Ubogu on a charity trek to Peru, he'd just finished playing rugby for Bath and England and owned a couple of bars in London. He later set up his own corporate hospitality and events company mainly based around rugby events but also covers Cyclothon UK, F1 & tennis amongst other sporting fixtures. I've have shot for Victor all over the world at various tournaments in Australia, Hong Kong, Dubai, Rome & Paris. He has a clubhouse in Twickenham where we entertain up to 200 guests pre and post match, I'm the in-house photographer who's lucky enough to rub shoulders with sporting legends, TV and Film personalities. At the moment Im working for Victor at the RSB 6 Nations, here are a few images from the hou...
I had a fantasic time shooting at Hever Castle on Tuesday for the unveiling of a rare portrait of King Henry VIII and the opening of 'A Bed of Roses' exhibition. TV Presenter Philip Mould OBE and TV historian Dr Jonathon Foyle educated the press and a small gathering of VIP's with the history of the bed and the painting. Listening about the meaning to the intricate carvings on the bed was fascinating and after the talk I even got to jump inside the frame of the bed where Henry VIII was possibly conceived! I love Hever Castle, I'm normally there shooting weddings in the building and the stunning grounds, it has to be one of the most beautiful castles in Kent if not the UK.
Its always great to see your images in print. This months Just Weddings Magazine features my lovely couple Laura and Sammy who tied the knot at Leeds Castle in July last year. The day was full of colour, love and laughter as the children ran throughout the grounds. Their beautiful daughter Rose, managed to take a few steps down the aisle of the church to be there as her mum and dad made their vows to one another.
One reason why I love my job as a photographer is the diversity. One day I'll be shooting a wedding, the next a rugby event, then possibly a portait or boudoir shoot. On Saturday my job took me to a very unusual event (well for me anyway) Fusion Fighting, where there was blood, sweat, rants and raves all from in a cage! Very challenging to shoot but I loved it. If you want to see more pictures from the night go to the 'Your Photo' section where you'll find the album, it's not for the faint hearted!
