As a family photographer, I love capturing those special, unscripted moments of childhood wonder and imagination. Recently, I had the joy of photographing a session with a mom and her two kids, a boy and a girl, playing together in the sunset glow of Rise Park in Basildon. It was a fun, active shoot full of laughter, magic, and togetherness. The golden sunlight filtering through the trees set a beautiful scene. Both kids were thrilled to run around and explore. I let the two siblings play more naturally while I followed capturing candid moments. Some of my favourite images were […]
Photography allows us to freeze time and immortalise the most cherished moments in our lives. Recently, I had the honour of photographing a baptism ceremony at Parohia Ortodoxă Română in Basildon, and the experience was truly awe-inspiring. Join me as I share a glimpse into the beauty and significance of this sacred event through my photographs. The Beauty of Baptism: In the Orthodox faith, baptism holds great importance as it signifies rebirth and entry into the Christian community. The ceremony is steeped in symbolism, with rituals that carry deep spiritual meaning. From the pouring of holy water to the anointing […]
As a parent, there’s nothing quite as rewarding as sharing a passion with your child. For me, that passion is photography, and I recently had the pleasure of teaching my 6-year-old daughter the basics of using a camera. We set up our cozy home studio at Ozgo Productions and got to work. I started by taking photos of her and my wife, trying out different outfits. Shortly after, she took over. I showed her how to zoom in and out, adjust the aperture, and frame a subject. It was amazing to see how quickly she picked up on everything and […]
As a photographer, there’s nothing quite like the joy of capturing the magic of a wedding day. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Alin and Madalina, a young couple’s special day at the Essex Register Office in Chelmsford, surrounded by their closest friends and family. The intimate ceremony was followed by a picturesque photo shoot in the Bell Meadow park on a cloudy day, where we were able to capture some stunning group shots and romantic portraits of the newlyweds. With my trusty drone, I was able to capture some truly breathtaking shots, highlighting the natural beauty of the […]
As a professional photographer, I have been taking pictures for years, but nothing has ever compared to the experience I had when my 6 and a half year old daughter took over an ad hoc studio photo session our friends ask me to do. After a few images, my daughter offered to take over the session for me. To my surprise, she did an amazing job! She showed a level of maturity and skill that I hadn’t expected from someone her age. She captured some beautiful images and also had a great sense of humour, making sure everyone was having […]

DALL-E 2 AI is blowing my mind is an understantement. I uploaded a picture, and deleted sections of the photo. In the edit section I wrote down what I would like the AI to do. This is the picture I started with: I started with “Delete the van from the frame” Next I asked AI to “replace the van in the frame with more people walking” and this is what it did: The possibilities are endless. In the end I was happy with this image: Let’s see it before and after. Try it for yourself – it’s fun…for now!

There’s so much more to explore than in a regular aquarium. We’ve had the privilege to really see what life is like in the coldest, darkest recesses of our seas, explore life around our shores, take a journey beneath the deep blue experiencing total tunnel vision, jump in their submarine and get up close and personal with all kinds of iconic fish.

After a change in venue, Wayne and Debbie finally got married on a beautiful summer day. I took about 2000 photographs, but only chosen 900 for the bride and groom. So many great moments. However, I am so excited to share a few photographs from this beautiful wedding at Stifford Hall Hotel in Thurrock. With everyone’s permission I even took some unique shot with my drone. Congratulations to the bride and groom and thank you for inviting me to take photographs of your special day!
Google Translate and Google assistant are very useful tools. So far I used Google translate on a few occasions to help me reverse the menu of a few monitors from Chinese to English or to read the Menu in a few restaurants in Turkey. The best part is that you don’t even need to know what language the text is written in. Just use Detect language feature. Numerous apps, websites and devices have the ability to translate between different languages. However, Google has two apps that can translate on iOS/iPadOS and Android smartphones if you ever need to interpret a […]

Isabelle’s 6th birthday party was a total success. She dressed in a Wonder Woman costume. Everyone else dressed in their favourite costume too. My daughter has chosen Elsa. They danced and jumped up and down for hours. Thought-out the evening they met their favourite heroes: Mickey & Mini Mouse, Peppa Pig & George, Spider-Man & Baby Shark, and to top it all up Moana, Belle, Anna, Elsa and Rapunzel. The highlight of the evening was the foam party on their favourited tunes. To quote my daughter: “was the best party ever”! Tips for my fellow photographers I used a Canon […]
