Do you take a DSLR or a compact to a wedding?

Always a tough question, what camera do you take to a friends wedding?  Last week I opted for my Nikon D610 and a fairly recent purchase of a Nikon, AF Nikkor 35mm F/2D lens. I took a few candid shots and as the lens isn't to flash looking, your subject matter are a little bit more relaxed. Like all my lenses, I tend to keep a UV filter on for protection.  The 35mm lens also makes it much lighter to carry, so hopefully I'll take it along to a few more social engagements. watch this space...

Dan Raza - New Album

Good to hear Dan Raza has released a new album.  I had the pleasure of a portrait sitting with Dan a we while back, I've dug out some of the pics which are below Dan's Facebook post. If you're in a band and need some photos, then do get in touch. It's always enjoyable to photograph musicians.

Obituary: Anita Pallenberg 1944 - 2017

Sad news to hear the passing of Anita Pallenberg this week. You can read more about Anita here and here . The Rolling Stones just wouldn't have been as cool without her.

I once had the pleasure of meeting her briefly at a Michael Putland, Rolling Stones exhibition. This was circa late 1990s, pre Blog. So, as it's a Thursday, why not have a "Throwback Thursday" to a Blog post, dated 4th March 2011,  looking back to 1999 about an exhibition of the Rollings Stones in the 1970s.   Blog post here

Smoking: It was good enough for Keith, then it's okay for GetCallaghan. PS. I gave up a couple years after this, I think I'm about 16 years smoking free. Yay me.

Borough Market, back open for business

 Popped down to Borough Market as it has re-opened to the public. I showed my support by buying some delicacies from the German Deli. Famous in Get Callaghan circles for German Night 

Best hat award goes to this chap

Election Campaign trail, Ilford North

Well, we just cant stop disagreeing and voting on things in old-blighty. And with another election happening this Thursday, 8th June. Here's a few overs from a campaign trail shoot I did with Wes Streeting of Ilford North. If you happen to live within Wes's constituency, then may I recommend you vote for him. He's one of the good guys out there and seems to care about local issues. Still undecided, then you can find out more about Wes Streeting here
