The countdown to Christmas and New Year has started… My eleven year old daughter is reminding me on an hourly and daily basis of the approaching festive season. I shamefully gave in today and, for the first-time ever, the Christmas Tree and decorations have gone up before the 18th December. So, she has managed to turn “Mr Grumpy” into “Mr Just Accept It” a whole three weeks earlier this year.
Given this remarkable cave-in, I am extending the gesture of goodwill and opportunity to all of you, my clients, past, present and future. There are no haunting spirits or Tiny Tims’ in this tale but “Mr Grumpy” would like to invite you to celebrate, enjoy the festive season and hopefully provide a gift to yourself, another or to those less fortunate this year.
Take a look at my Christmas Specials and join in the season to be merry, grateful and charitable.
The homepage also has a winter/christmas theme so enjoy, let’s hope we get some of that white stuff soon :)

Crisis Coventry 25th December 2018.
Two of my clients (Chris Shaw and Laura Byrne) and previous photographers of the Help-portrait Events in 2017 have very kindly volunteered their Christmas Day to provide portrait/event photos for the Crisis Coventry Christmas Day Event. Last year’s photos very warmly received so help Chris and Laura raise enough money to provide 100 photos on the 25th Dec 2018.
