I am a Devon-based photographer working throughout the UK and Europe. I have turned doing something I love into a successful business by sharing my love of photography with my clients through my work.
My portfolio includes a wide body of work that reflects my love of all things photographic but I am best-known for my wedding photography and portrait work, with my documentary-style wedding photography that is proving so popular with my clients, capturing the day as it happens.
While there will always be a place for traditional wedding photography with the type of formal group shots we all know, my photo-journalistic, documentary-style gives a feeling of "being amongst it", up-close and personal. In my opinion the images captured in this way appear more realistic, more creative, more spontaneous, and give a real account of the day as it happened.
Having the right person behind the camera is important, and using the right kit also helps. Having used full-frame professional Nikon kit for several years I now use Fujifilm bodies and lenses. These small, lightweight mirrorless systems provide stunning image quality without the bulk of a dSLR, and allow the photographer to capture images without people knowing they are the subject which allows me to capture amazing candid and reportage shots throughout the day at a wedding.
To me, photography is about recording the moment. It's about my interpretation of what I see before me. It's about the light. It's about capturing something that not everyone can see, even if they are looking straight at it. It's about pleasure. It's about feeling.
Photography is something I enjoy with a passion, and I enjoy the pleasure my photos bring to other people. I use natural and available light in my photography as much as possible. This allows me to capture a mood within the image and makes for excellent, creative photographs that feel good as well as look good.
