A love of taking pictures started as a child. The pleasure of first picking up a camera and listening to the sound of the shutter "click" stuck. Visually exploring life's moments with a chance to discover that unique angle.
I'm very much a people person and love to capture people at their best. Not everyone likes having their photograph taken, many saying "I look awful in photographs"- but that's my challenge! I want to make someone feel comfortable and relaxed, then that way I can get much more natural and flattering shots.
The variation of photography is what I love - I don't just do weddings, I don't just do commercial photography and I don't just do portrait work – the variety is the key to keeping things looking fresh and alive. This makes me highly driven. I buzz! - Those who meet me at weddings are amazed by my high energy levels. I'm excited almost as much as the couple on their special day and want to capture as much as I can as the day unfolds.
Equally having been a business owner for the past 20 years, I understand the importance of creating the right image for commercial clients, be it for an international client or small business.
I am a happily married man with two beautiful children and love coming home at night to hear about their latest adventures. Being a hands on dad really helps when it comes to meeting other children. Getting down on their level and speaking with them, not at them, generally means they are happier to have fun in front of the camera, resulting in great pictures.
