Kent Wedding & General Photographer
Projects, events, news and information
To the memory of Posh Paws, my truest friend. RIP Posh Paws. I will always love and miss you. xxxx
We are now well in to Spring, with Summer fast approaching. However, what a start to what is usually such a magnificent time of year.
The only really memorable event of 2020 is, of course, the Coronavirus. It has brought the economy, as well as people's lives, to a complete halt.
From a photographer's perspective, it has been extremely frustrating, making it difficult to go out and take photographs, and also having events/weddings/photo shoots cancelled.
My thoughts are with you all, but especially all those who had to cancel weddings/ceremonies/events. Let us hope things will begin to return to some degree of normality - very soon.
Be safe, everyone; stay well, and do not panic. This country has survived much worse, and we will continue to grow and provide a future.
Kingsdown Church, Kent
I have now visited 276 out of 539 churches in Kent. I'm having to travel further afield, as I have visited everywhere within about an hour's travelling distance from where I live. However, with the current situation, I have had to put a complete halt to my project. It is such a pity, as the weather has improved, and the beauty of Spring is upon us.
I go out infrequently, staying away from main roads and people, as much as I can. I have managed a few photographs, but I am suspending my usual activities, until the crisis is over, or at least "sent packing". I feel for all the freelancers out there; things are difficult enough at the best of times, but to lose your livelihood due to a hidden enemy is frustrating and devastating.
It is tempting to visit more places, especially with the roads being virtually empty. However, I am resisting the temptation; it is essential. I am deeply concerned, though, that when this ends, so many things are not going to be the same as they were. Perhaps we will learn valuable lessons. One can only hope so, but this certainly ought to be a "wake up call".
Remember: if you want your wedding or ceremony photographed, you may book me up to 2 years in advance. I am still taking bookings. Please see my contact page.
Wishing you well for the coming months, and on into the rest of 2020.I'll keep you updated, if and when I travel and take more high-quality images - because our images matter.
