Thanks for taking the time to view this section and finding out a little about me ! I was born in and have lived most of my life
in the North East of England but work all across the UK regularly travelling far and wide.
I began my interest in Photography in my late teens with an early 35mm camera mainly taking Landscapes and honed my craft
over the following decades until 2005 when I set up the website you see now. I now photograph Weddings, Commercial Work
and sell Landscape prints - I have shot over 600 weddings and worked for companies large and Small from the NHS ,
The Sun and Mercedes Benz to local corner shops and small Ebay busineses. My Landscape prints are all over the world. My experience
in a vast amounts of different photography Weddings, Portraits, Property, Sports, Landscapes, Nightime, Press, Events, Products, Vehicles,
Commercial and more mean I am versatile and able to bring a different perspective to shoots and produce outstanding work.
As far as Weddings my aim is to turn up on your big day, be part of the scenery and blend in, having said that I also make sure I get involved
whenever needed and help out with all sorts from helping suppliers when I am not busy to keeping people cool with fans
and supplying scissors sewing kits, pinning button holes and all sorts of other things ! - I turn up in a suit / wastecoat if hot as
its a wedding not a nightclub and dont feel its right wearing loafers and jeans to a wedding as some do.
You wont find me throwing smoke bombs. I wont be using your day to try and make my portfolio of night shots look better while you freeze.
The most important thing to me is that the couple enjoy every moment of the day and I am there to both capture and assist with that.
Being a full time and experienced professional photographer I know how to capture great moments with the minimum of fuss, how to be in
the right place at the right time. I know how important it is for you to spend time with family you may not see often and also get great wedding photos.
I work for you and with you - if you want lots of high end fashion type shots then fine by me - if you want more candid shots also great and if you
want me to just to what I do best while you enjoy getting married then perfect ! Just take a look through my galleries and reviews and you will see what
can be achieved with the minumum of time taken out of enjoying the day and all the great moments that can be captured you
will not even know about till you get the photos back !
Oh and something else you wont find here ! - I dont waste money and time on glossy looking websites or companies to promote me I do everything myself in house
hence I have not gone out of business and have a stable number of clients each year and can promise when you book you wont be worrying a year later
if I have gone out of business like most newcomers to wedding photography do. This may not be the best website you visit design wise but its the photography you
are paying for and my images and prices are unrivalled in my own humble opinion !
Dont make the mistake we see so often when couples decided to get a friend to do their photos, Once they are taken and if they are not done professionally then they cannot be saved and you are likely to lose not only the memories of your special day but probably the friendship of the person you ask too ! We regularly get asked to recover poor photos from weddings and unfortunately the majority of the time nothing can be done. Weddings are the most pressured situation for a photographer and experience is vital.
We only ever photograph one wedding in a day and as a full time business concentrating on weddings we can take 40-50 weddings a year maxiumum which gives us the time needed to correctly edit the photos to our high standard as you will see from our galleries. This means that popular dates are booked fast so dont delay in getting in touch if you would like to discuss your plans with us.
Our work speaks for itself, take a look at our gallery HERE then if you wish to know more get in touch
and i will be happy to answer all your questions
