My initial interest in photography started when I was in my 20's and I enrolled at Bury College to gain a photography degree. At the time I was out of work and wanted to pursue photography as a career. The week before my course was due to start I was offered a job in the I.T. Industry which required me to move down South immediately to Windsor. So photography went on the backburner for a number of years whilst I earned my money and supported my growing family, my wife Ruth and three daughters.
There was a time when wedding photography was all formal group set ups, face the camera, say 'cheese' and take the photo. That never sat well with me so I concentrated on photographing landscapes, flowers and animals as a hobby.
The digital age changed everything for me. I suddenly started to see on the web the kind of photography, especially wedding photography, that I knew I would enjoy taking part in. For me weddings are about romance, intimacy, fun, capturing fleeting moments in time and most importantly people. Life is about people and sharing good times with them. When I go to photograph a wedding or a portrait the interaction with people who enjoy what you are doing for them is incredibly rewarding.
A moment of time came when I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to become a full time photographer and since then I have never regretted the decision to go for it. The dynamics of every wedding are different but there is one constant, a couple in love and Parents, Family and Friends who want everything to be right on the day. I count it a privilege to be part of that day with you. I love that I can contribute something special to your day as well!
