Back when I was in secondary school became interested in photography through and art project, with the help of my father I set about taking images on An Olympus 35mm SLR with a black and white film, I enjoyed the results, learning about the technology and experimenting with different light effects, from that moment, I was sold. It would however be several years later that I finally purchased a DSLR.
Finally in 2012 I found the excuse to purchase a DSLR, within a few months photography became an obsession, I really enjoyed the results from using a DSLR and the days gone by of using a 35mm SLR came flooding back. The next several months became an addiction to learning about the technology, the skill and the passion to take me forward. I am a surveyor by profession which probably helped with the technical and ‘factual’ aspect of using a DSLR.
I initially became drawn to the colour of landscapes and the natural light of the early morning sunrise. It requires a considerable work ethic to be in the right place at the right time, requiring lots of patience and dedication. For every successful trip there is an unsuccessful one, and dragging yourself out of bed at 4am is not easy, however I do enjoy the solitude.
I started with landscape photography, however I have found photographing more formal and specific occasions more rewarding. weddings, portraits and more informal reportage is enjoyable, to see the faces of the happy couple and their friends smiling and laughing is fantastic.
It’s really satisfying to capture those special moments for the families and friends and for future generations. I enjoy taking a difference perspective and capturing the events from a distance ensuring that you are getting a natural look and feel on the day.
I don’t like to heavily process my images and let the scene do the talking, letting the photographs transport the viewer to a different place entirely.
As a photographer located in Dronfield, Derbyshire I get to enjoy the Peak District on a regular basis. My portfolio of weddings and landscapes reflects my dedication to this beautiful area and chasing fleeting moments and admiring the fantastic views. When everything comes together there is nothing I love more.
As a photographer I enjoy capturing the action as it happens, creating fresh, vibrant images that capture the essence of my subjects. From weddings, babies and children, landscapes, still life and reportage, I love covering them all.
Always wanting to expand my portfolio I would love to work with you, whatever your requirements. I like to approach my work with a unique and flexible perspective, always open to new ideas.
