Event & Party Photography

My apologies! Please note my previous review here was not for Malcolm. This was meant for another company and I will ask Bark to remove it.
Regrettably I did not book Malcolm. I should have. He was absolutely charming and incredibly helpful as I was trying to sort the photographer for my party. He was supportive and followed up with me when he actually could have just left it. Charming and helpful.

General Photography

Malcolm came totally prepared for my headshot and helped me to feel familiar with the set up in advance. The whole thing was smooth running and nothing was a bother. He made it very easy to feel relaxed and to get the best out of me even though I'm not one to be the centre of attention. It was like having a catch up with a friend! More...

Thanks for the lovely review, Nina - it was great working with you!

We came across Malcolm after he generously donated a photography session and print as a ‘prize’ to someone crowdfunding to set up an eco-shop. Before our session, I was worried that our son wouldn’t allow someone he didn’t know to take his photo. Or that the photos would be too posed. Neither came true because Malcolm spent lots of time getting the arrangements right before we met and on the day was patient and allowed us to do what we liked. He appreciated that our son was a little apprehensive around strangers and made the effort to play and get his trust. My favourite part was playing around in the forest because it resulted in more natural photos. Malcolm was extremely professional, providing brilliant communication after the photo shoot as well as amazing photos, which we are really happy with. I would definitely recommend Malcolm and wouldn’t hesitate to book him again. More...

For great pictures of people, the single most important thing to me is to help my subject to relax and to enjoy themselves, because this is when you look your best! I will help you to pose so that it looks both natural and flattering and you can leave me to capture that perfect moment.

For professional headshots, I always ask how you want to be seen by your ideal client, because this helps me to get the shot that will best help your business. For family portraits, I like to know about the people who will be in the picture and what their interests are, as well as what you want the pictures for.

I love proving people wrong. So many people tell me that they are "not photogenic" and no-one has been right yet!

I had become obsessed with photography as a hobby and this was the only way I could give it more time!

I won't be the cheapest photographer you could find, but that's because I don't offer "one size fits all". Instead, I am interested in really understanding what you want and then doing my absolute best to show you how good that can look. Or, as one recent client said:

"Before meeting Malcolm, I was worried about whether a photographer could get the best out of me, to lift a smile and bring out personality. But on the day, I enjoyed trying different ideas out at different settings in my local park, and was surprised by his creativity and patience in getting the right look and lighting. If you want someone to really listen to what you want, and to obsessively over-deliver on that, then Malcolm is your guy. "
