- Portable Lighting Set-Up -

Lately I have been looking into using a more portable lighting set up as most of the shoots I do are on location. I decided to try out my Nissin speedlite that has been packed away and not been used in years. I wanted something light weight, fast to set up and easy to transport to jobs. I’ve taken some test images of my infant son Eireann to get a feel for it.

After the test shoot I am very pleased with the results and am now looking into other lighting modifiers that work well speedlite photography as this is a new area of lighting for me. I’ll be blogging more in the future about this area of lighting set-up.  


- Nikon D800, 50mm Lens, Nissin Di866, Twin Link Wireless Receiver, Lighting Stand, Flashgun Adapter and an Umbrella.  

- Back Into The Fray -

It seems as if it were a lifetime ago since I last blogged (just over a year in fact). It was then that my partner Emma and I were hit with some devastating news during what should have been a happy time in our lives.

It paused the plans I had for my photography and I lost the spark. But now a year on we are extremely happy! We are both in good health, have great friends and family around us, and most importantly we have a 3month old son who we both adore. I have never felt love for anything as I do for our little man Eireann David Ryan Jones! He has made Emma and I the happiest people in the world!


So on that note I have decided it was about time I got back to shooting. I have a few ideas and plans in the pipeline for this year and can’t wait to get back into the fray!

- January Promotion! -

The Package

I offer one package to make booking with me easier. This consists of a free initial consultation so we can get to know each other over a coffee and I can get a clear picture of what your expecting from the shoot. 

Once the shoot and editing is complete you will receive a disk of 6 fully edited images at full resolution so you have the freedom to use them as you wish, either uploading them to your social media site or getting them printed. It’s up to you they’re your photographs!

Normally the price for the package is £65 but for this month only until the 31st January you get all this for £58.50.

I do hope to hear from you and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have!

Terms & Conditions

The offer applies to enquiries received before or on the 31st January 2016. The 10% discount will be deducted from the overall price of the portrait session. I must have received your deposit by the 31st January for the offer to apply. 

Deposit will be £10 to secure your photoshoot. 

Travel Costs

I’m based in Derbyshire so if you need me to travel further afield then travel costs will be added to the total package price.

e.g. Portrait Package - £58.50 + Travel cost - £5.00 = £63.50

Please note travel cost is an example only

- Exciting News -

Before this year began I knew things were going to change but I wasn’t expecting the amazing news that I received on New Years Eve. My fiancée surprised me with the wonderful news that I was going to be a Daddy! 

After the way the rest of the year had gone, bad luck after bad luck, we both needed to see some light at the end of the tunnel. This was most definitely the turn around we needed.

Today I took our first pregnancy photograph and I thought that I had seen every emotion on Ems face but I had never seen her so at ease , so calm and full of serenity, it was beautiful.

We are so excited to see what the future has in store for us both and now for our future little one.

It’s most definitely been the happiest new year we’ve had in a long time and we’re only five days in.

- 2016 Portrait Sessions -

I thought I would share a few photographs from my last shoot of 2015. I shot these for my friend Stephen and his brother Ryan as a gift to their mother. I’m really happy with the results and they’re some of my favourite photographs of the year. 

After completing the shoot it got me thinking that I will offer this style of portrait shoot as a service starting in 2016…. affordable portrait sessions for siblings, families, couples or just because! 

I don’t think theres anything better than having something physical to document a part of your life or of a loved one that you can keep forever. So watch this space and feel free to contact me for information on my affordable portrait sessions. And last of all……

Happy New Year and I hope 2016 brings great things!!
