Photography is my passion. When not shooting weddings or portraits I am rarely without a camera in hand, capturing people and scenarios I come across (see my blog for examples). Cityscape, landscape and the beauty of nature are also regular subjects of mine. I hope that this passion and dedication to photography comes across as you view my gallery.
Everybody has different needs and requirements when they look to hire a photographer. I feel it is important to work together, with my client, from the start of a project, so that a shared vision for a successful outcome can be achieved. Being a successful photographer is more than just having the right equipment, technical knowledge and eye for composition; it is also about being able to develop successful relationships. A natural rapport creates a relaxed environment, allowing the photographer to capture the true spirit and essence of the individual or event.
Apart from my professional work I currently also have a number of ongoing personal projects:
Black and White Street Photography - capturing interesting, quirky moments and scenarios that spontaneoulsy occur in everyday life. Tribes - a street photography venture capturing, candidly, groups of people from similar socio-economic backgrounds, distinguished by their dress, physical appearance and body language. Street Portraits - a collection of portraits of random subjects I encounter, sometimes candid shots and sometimes posed for. Petts Wood Through the Seasons - capturing the changing landscape and behaviour of nature on my daily walks with my Labradoodle, Woody.
Lucy is an accomplished and experienced photographer, and accompanies me to weddings as a second shooter. This enables us to capture your special day from all angles and scenarios. Lucy comes from a family of photographers (her father was a wedding photographer). She developed a love for the art from a young age and has been documenting life ever since.
