It’s A level results day. One way or another thousands of school leavers will feel that what happens today will determine their futures for good or ill. Here’s wishing that you all have a reaction like this young lady, whom I photographed this time last year as she opened the dreaded envelope!
Any sports photographer will tell you that what is going on around the field of play is as important as the action within the event itself – indeed it offers a rich seam of image possibilities, just look at the wonderful array of imagery to come out of London 2012. So too it is the case with other types of photography including weddings, and a good photographer will be watching what is going on all around them. This is image is a case in point, from the wedding I shot at the weekend. The bride’s son, an apparently quiet boy, kept to himself as the ladies were getting prepared, but he still wanted to keep an eye on what was happening for himself.
