The Bloke with the camera
So a bit about me, I’m a full time wedding and family photographer from Stafford. I’m happily married and live with my wife Katie (who as it turns out was a fantastically tolerant model in the early days). We’ve got two kids – a gorgeous daughter, Ava, who was born in 2013 and an awesome son Finley who was born in 2015.
And I mustn’t forget to mention our two crazy cats called Sidney and Bertie, Sidney likes crisps and marmite..yup, you read that right. Oh and we’ve got some chickens too (Photographer going on zoo keeper at times)!
So why do I shoot the way I do?
Well ultimately I guess I find emotion addictive, and the camera gives me the ability to capture it and freeze that split second moment ready to be relived again and again. Of course I love being creative with the camera and setting up a cool lit shot. But I firmly believe its the natural shots that will become more and more valuable to you as the years go on.
Whether its a wedding or a family photoshoot, or even just taking photos of my own children, I’m always so much more drawn to the unposed shots over the posed ones… I think its because the smiles and emotion is real. In fact the photos I love taking of my kids are just them being kids and capturing that snapshot in time.
Being a full time professional means I give 100% to each and every person who books me, I’ll always attend the wedding or shoot eager and energised for the day ahead. I’m committed to quality, the albums and products I use are amongst the best in the world and each one is carefully designed and checked by me personally to ensure it meets my high standards.
