Steve Davis – Snooker Legend

By Andrew | 17th November 2017

This week I was asked if I could come along to The Tavern in Pencoed and photograph the living snooker legend that is Steve ‘Interesting’ Davis. Contrary to his ‘interesting’ name, which he got thanks to Spitting Image, he is a really funny bloke and it was one of the best evenings I’ve had in…

Winter Themed Shoots

By Andrew | 9th October 2017

Yes….a themed shoot This is a first for Andrew Davis Photography, having any themed shoots, but what better time of year to do out than the Winter. Bringing the outdoor in, without the cold!! Having been asked a few times over the passed few years. I felt it was something that I should look into,…

Weddings, weddings and more weddings…and some other stuff too!

By Andrew | 23rd August 2017

Yep, its been one of those months…or two. Loads of weddings. This is why I haven’t blogged for a while (that and I’m not very good keeping up with it). I have been everywhere from Hensol Castle through to Port Talbot and a many places in-between and even though it has been an exhausting and…

Busy month ahead after the enjoyment of last weekend

By Andrew | 22nd July 2017

The Future That’s right. I have a very busy month ahead with weddings and some studio work. In-fact the next four weeks will see the studio closed for at least one day of the week because of the midweek weddings that I have. I’ll be shooting at venues all over South Wales including Hensol Castle…

Playgroup Shoot

By Andrew | 23rd June 2017

What you doing?…Why? Last week I had the joy photographing children at a local playgroup. As much as you never know exactly what you are going to get with toddlers, you can be sure that there will be laughter, shyness, cuteness and cheekiness. This shoot didn’t fail on any of those fronts and it also…

My Favourite Wedding Venue

By Andrew | 2nd June 2017

Where do I start. There are a few in the running for this and although I have photographed most of the recognised wedding venues in South Wales, there are a few that haven’t been lucky enough for me to attend. 😉 I don’t think there are any “perfect” venues. It might be that they have…

Four down, one to go! GIVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER TIME Generally speaking the longer you give your photographer the better your photographs will be. Each and everyone has their own way of working, their own style and their own speed. You want the best from your photographer and they want to provide you with the best…

By Andrew | 21st April 2017

It’s been a while (can’t blog when busy shooting weddings), but here is the third instalment in the guide. THINK ABOUT THE LIGHT So you’ve just got engaged and you’re now thinking of when to get married. For me it was an open diary. There was nothing that it had to fit around, so when…

Vale Coastal Ultra 2017

By Andrew | 3rd April 2017

Mad people running a stupid distance! What more can be said about an Ultra race? 32 miles was the distance for full course, although due a rock fall it was kindly extended to 33.7 miles! The short (most inappropriate word ever) course was a mere 18.5 miles…again extended to avoid the rock fall. Starting in…

The ‘Beast’ Run

By Andrew | 9th March 2017

So what does everyone do on a Sunday morning at 8 am? Have a lie on maybe? Well not my family, we go to running events, either to watch the wife and our youngest son, or to support. I do make a fuss at times but deep down I do enjoy it really (don’t tell…
