To celebrate my Manchester wedding photographer Facebook page reaching 1,000 members, I am holding a competition to give away a free 30″ x 20″ canvas print of one of the photographs I took on my recent safari in Kenya to one member of my Facebook page.

To enter all you have to do is go to my Facebook page, become a fan (unless you have already done so) and, in the album called “Canvas Competition – January 2010″, leave a comment underneath the photograph which you would like to win stating why you would like that photograph as a canvas.

The album can be accessed here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=141033&id=102456937975&ref=mf

The winner will be the person who in my leaves the best comment. The comment can be funny, serious, complimentary, short or long – I will leave it up to you!

All comments must be made by Wednesday 27th January 2010 – so one week today. Once this date passes I will choose a winner. People may comment on more than one photograph but no more than one comment per photograph please. Unfortunately the competition is only open to UK residents.

If you would like to invite your Facebook friends to enter the competition please click on the ‘suggest to friends’ link on the left hand side of my Facebook page, select all your friends (or those you wish to invite) and click send.

Thank you again to everybody who has already joined my Facebook page, I am very grateful.

Good luck to you all!:-)


Wow, I have never seen as much snow in Manchester as we’ve had today!

I couldn’t resist taking some photographs as I doubt we will get snow like this again for many years.  The photographs below were all taken in Sale, apart from the last one which is Manchester Town Hall.  I will be covering another wedding at Manchester Town Hall in a few months – I’ve a feeling it will look very different by then:-)

For the photographers out there, the first 4 photographs are all HDR images made up of 5 different exposures. I combined them using Photomatix.
