Christening photo shoot at St John's Catholic Church, Bath

I was delighted to be asked to photograph this christening at the weekend in one of Bath's most beautiful Victorian churches: St John's.

The building is a pleasure to work in with its sombre colours, elegant lines and soaring Gothic arches, but it also has good levels of natural light, enabling me to work unobtrusively during the service without flash and still capture natural vibrant colours.

Anyway, the event was a real pleasure to photograph.
