I’m a laid-back happy sort of person, with a huge love for the countryside and wild adventures. I absolutely love photographing people, it really does feel like this was the thing I was meant to do with my life.
For me photography is all about freezing the stories of our lives. Photos give you a glimpse back to a time and place that can never reoccur. Life is so transient, each second passing, never to be recreated. A single image can freeze a section of your life. When you look at a great photo you can relive the feelings of that moment. Yet they never give away too much. Unlike video, a photo allows you the room to add your own memories on top of the image you see. It’s that little bit of magic that I think makes them so special.
I never really know how to put my style into words, but people often say how friendly and unobtrusive I am as a photographer. I take the time to get to know everyone I work with and I know how important it is that people feel relaxed on their photoshoot. And the actual photos, well, I want them to be beautiful enough to hang on your walls but with enough of a story that generations in the future will be able to relive your day.
If that sounds like what you’re looking for then I’d love to hear from you. I photograph weddings, families and small businesses.
It was my kids that inspired me to start my photography career
I’ve been on so many adventures with my family: wild camping, backpacking in India, waking up in beach huts in Asia, watching the sunrise over Angor Wat. I’ve always had my camera at my side. Now when I look back at those photos I feel so lucky to have captured all those stories. That to me is the real power of photography. It can freeze moments and help you reimagine your favourite memories.
