Are you having a 'quirky wedding' well some call them quirky I think they are normal myself but then again I an not entirely normal...
I am really interested to shoot more different and interesting weddings and want to give people the chance to get me to shoot their wedding at a preferential cost depending on how quirky it is with some extras thrown in.

Many people play it safe and do the Hotel - Golf Course - Chair covers weddings with a DJ playing just what you would expect, are you doing something different? perhaps:

* Tattoo Wedding
* Rock Bands
* Festival wedding
* Dress up wedding
* Dress down wedding (work that one out yourself)
* Punk Wedding (Genuine)
* Druid / Hippy (genuine not dress up please)
* Star Trek / Star Wars / Themed wedding
* Whatever else you can think of ...

Give me a call and see if its different enough to save up to 50% off your photography package.

* Offer runs for a limited time

Kent portrait photographer

Not Just Wedding Photography 

I thought it would be a good idea to post a nice collage from a portrait shoot I had in Knole Park, this shoot was for the clients social media and while we were there I got a little more in the way of shots than the client expected.
Whats worse, not having enough shots or having too many?
Needless to say the client was very happy and will hopefully recommend me to other people she knows looking for the same sort of thing.
Her gallery included 99 images and the collage is just a small selection from that gallery.

Hopefully this will work as a link and you will see me looking pretty tired as I have been up since 4am and have just worked out how to use my new 360 degree camera using my smartphone to control it, this is the first image I took in my edit room.
oh my God a new camera shot - Spherical Image - RICOH THETA

photographers kent

visit my new website
Hi there, I have finished the new documentary website now and would love some feedback on how it looks and the content or any suggestions you may have.
my exsisting site is still up and running and is the main focus of my business (excuse the pun) but I wanted an offering that pointed at a different client.

There are so many 'photographers' out there now and some clients simply cant see the difference between them, to others the difference is obvious, well the clinets that recognise the obvious difference, these are the ones that this is pointed at.

I'm not in any way saying wht other photographers offer is bad, after all its all about perception and if you are happy with what you receive then fantastic, but as a photographer myself who is constantly trying to acheive better images and as a guitarist in a band (we write our own music) this theme follows through whatever I do.

So if you have a chance then give me some feedback on the new site please.

and at the same time you can still visit

Ok so I am in the process of building my new offering that is a little different from my current business, Sevenoaks Photography offer a much more bespoke service that get much more into the editing to create unique artistic photography, not that my current business matt james photography has not artistic offerings, however sevenoaks photography is much more about natural light and the edit to extra time is spent on each image and therefore it is a little more expensive.

getting to grips with low light photography

well some call it low light some call it natural light, its either really, what I do know is that first you need the right equipment, len's that can go down to f1.2 - 2.8 these are fast and can collect great light in a minimal light enviroment like a church where really you dont want flashes going off all the time

there is still a skill to using them you have to look for the subject or emotion in a shot then find the light as well to take best advantage of the potential shot, but if it happens its magic :-)

you can see many examples on the website

thanks for reading and whats your opinion ?
