• Welcome to the Blog!

    Hello - My name is Ben and I'm the photographer & owner behind Touch Photography (see random pic). Here you can find my latest wedding photography shoots & pre-shoots and occasionally some personal photos or interesting commercial shoots; with the odd random thought, insight or anything else that may tickle my fancy.

    Please also view my PORTFOLIO website. (esp if it's your first visit here?)

    So whether you’re recently engaged, past client, friend, fellow photographer or simply just browsing that big wonderful web – then thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks Ben x

VOUTIQUE… Something old, …new, …borrowed, …blue…

…and maybe even a silver sixpence in her shoe!

Yeah I know… I’ve only gone and disappeared off the blog radar again – it’s been a crazy busy season so far, and it’s only getting busier! ……which is great for me, but of course my blog takes a hit when I’ve got a mega backlog of editing to do, and a hundred and one other things to do.

Though things are in motion – to be able speed up everything, this will result in an even better service for my clients and being able to blog more regularly… which means you get to see more lovely photos, more often 🙂

Anyway – in amongst wedding summer madness!  ……you may or may not know, that I also run a commercial company – called simply – TOMLIN (though it’s currently being re-branded at present)

So I thought rather than post some wedding images today…. I thought you might like to see something a bit different, but hopefully just as interesting? ……Fashion photography! – certainly the skills gained over the years in this field – translates when I’m shooting the portrait shots of a couple at weddings & pre-shoots, of course not every wedding has 6″ something models, MUA, Stylists,…. and a plethora of Profoto studio lights, …though occasionally I have been known to get out a beauty dish, softbox or two in the past – if the time, light & situation all fall into place.

So here’s a selection of banner/headline images – I’ve been shooting for a new company called – VOUTIQUE…… if you love vintage clothing, homeware, bridal, basically anything vintage – you need to check this out – and then tell all your friends too 🙂

It’s the UK’s only online marketplace – dedicated to all that’s vintage… with some of the best independent shops & traders from around the country signed up… it’s the place to find that unique one off at the click of a mouse button… I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be BIG – though hopefully not too big 😉

Oh and before I forget…… if you fancy winning £300 to spend at VOUTIQUE,  the lovely peeps over at ‘Control The Riot‘ …are offering their readers the chance to WIN £300.

The brief has been varied for the shoots so far… and the locations has of course dictated to some extent, the direction, styling and the lighting set-up used… plus the retouching orientation. The one thing I’ve always tried to keep in mind was that they needed to be visually strong as one-offs rather than a collection and they needed to work in the specified crop ratio for the banners… hence why they are all horizontal images.

So without further ado…
