You may notice that the last blog entry was way back in Nov 2014. Fear not, I'm still busy making photographs for happy clients, I've just decided to put the blog on a bit of a hiatus.
Well, here's the thing. There's already hundreds of photographs on this site - more than enough for you to be able to make a decision about whether I'm the right photographer for you. So why add even more?
The vast majority of photographers' blog posts (yes, including mine) are written with one aim - to get Google to index the pages and help improve the chance of getting the site to appear high up in the search results. So photographers post lots of pictures from every wedding they can to keep the content fresh and make the keywords available for Google to read. The posts are not really there for your benefit, but for a machine. The problem is that the machine keeps changing the rules about what it likes. And I've got better things to do than spend my time trying to figure out what this week's rules are.
Since I've never really been anywhere near the top of the search results in Google's big index I'm not really losing out by refusing to play their game. Most of my clients come via personal recommendation from previous happy couples or from other photographers. So I've stopped uploading stuff for the moment.
I'm still busy fielding enquiries, attending weddings up and down the country and delivering great photographs to my clients. Let me know if you'd like me to photograph yours - there's plenty of pictures already on here to help you make up your mind...
