So I thought I would share with you a little email I received not too long back… of course it’s always lovely to hear from the bride & groom, making all the hard work worth while and rewarding – but when you have guests commenting & giving feedback too – that makes me really smile […]

    Brilliant work again Ben. I love the shots on the log during the bride and groom portrait session and the way you’ve positioned them to take advantage of some beautiful backlighting. I’ve encountered quite a few vicars recently who’ve not allowed photography from the front of the church – a great pity, particularly since once you’re in position it’s equally discreet as being positioned at the back!ReplyCancel

Wedding – Louise & Gavin – Notley Abbey

So this is the wedding of the lovely Louise & Gavin at the beautiful venue of Notley Abbey…… arguably the finest of the Bijou Wedding Venues, with possibly one of the nicest tree lined drives in the country! One of the reasons Louise & Gavin chose the venue of Notley Abbey was that they wanted […]

    A fabulous set of images Ben. It looks like everyone had a wonderful day. I really love your B&W treatments – and, where you asked for a preference, I’d opt for the softer image on the right. I was drinking a cup of tea as I perused the gallery and almost sprayed a mouthful on the keyboard when I saw the kilt shots – fantastic!
    Hope you have a great season in 2011.
    All the best,

    A pleasure Ben. I’ve bookmarked you so will be back to follow your progress throughout the year. Just been admiring the autumn wedding shot you posted this morning – fabulous light and colours. Such a great time of the year for photography (provided it’s not bucketing down!)ReplyCancel

    Oh Ben, you have such an incredible eye for composition. I bought my first DSLR recently and you continue to be a great source of inspiration for me.

    Really looking forward to more blog posts, and maybe a catch up soon to help out with resolution number two! Happy New Year xxReplyCancel

    Hi Ben,
    What a pleasure to read such an eloquent blog post. Many photographers, alas, are not so gifted when it comes to the written word! I just wanted to comment on a few of your points. Firstly, work-life balance. It’s so easy to say yes to every job offer and overfill the diary, particularly since bookings are often made so far in advance. I’m sure those of us filled with passion and enthusiasm for our work are guilty of overestimating what we’re capable of. To try and mitigate against this I’ve started colour-coding entries in my diary (clearly OCD) in order to guarantee days-off (which can be moved according to work, but at least it ensures I get some!) Second point – frequency of blogging. I think this is one of the first tasks that we all drop when the workload ramps up. I too have been investigating plugins to try and automate the more tedious aspects of the job (I use Lightroom in conjunction with Blogger). As you say, the actual writing is the fun bit!
    I shall be following your progress throughout the year Ben. First wedding of 2011 for me on Saturday!
    All the best,
    PS Love the shots from Umbria – Good friends, a glass of wine and a beautiful sunset – some of the greatest pleasures that life has to offer.ReplyCancel
