Based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, as a husband and father of two I know all too well the importance of capturing those special moments in your life.
Photography is my passion in life. If I didn’t do this as a job, I would still be taking photo’s as often as I could. My wife will confirm this as we have countless images of the kids, of our holidays, and I also try to get out on my own from time to time to take some landscape images just for my own personal pleasure. I love to be creative but most of all I love to capture special moments, so these can be remembered and relived through my work.
I have been working as a professional photographer for around ten years now, and love my job. The first fifteen years of my working life were spent as an Optician, working in an enclosed room with no windows and no way for me to express my creativity. It was a job I enjoyed but not a job I had a real passion for and this is why I have now decided to follow my passion and make a career out of the thing I enjoy doing most.
I would say I am a very laid back character. I don’t tend to feel to pressured when shooting, as I am usually enjoying myself too much. This, I hope, creates a very relaxed atmosphere when I am shooting allowing me to capture more natural and genuine moments.
My style is always developing as I learn new techniques and as technology advances to allow new creative image options. I would say my biggest talent is in capturing natural moments, in a reportage of documentary style, but I also love to get creative with couples to produce stunning contemporary images too.
I like to be organised. I like to have a good plan in my head about how a wedding day will go, what kind of images the bride and groom are hoping for and what options the venue will give us, and with this in mind, in any wedding package you’d book with me, I will also include a free meet up at your venue around a month before the wedding. I can’t understate the value of this in allowing the day to run smoothly and for me to get a feel as to what your hopes are as a bride and groom.
