My Approach

Who Am I ?

I’ve been a photographer for 30 years (now!) and have graduated from university with a HND in photographic design and a first class honours degree in photography. I live in Todmorden with my wife, two children and two dogs. Originally from “saaf east” London I am now an honorary northerner after living in this neck of the woods for over 20 years. I love being out with my family walking the dogs in the wilds of The Dales & The Lake District, am a bit of a foodie and love a good crackly fire in the local in winter.

What To Expect On The Day

On the day, like in life, I’m pretty chilled and relaxed. I want have a great time like you and enjoy being with people and having a laugh. When I get into my work I don’t stop. Essentially I document the day as it happens – your story. The photography always revolves around you. If you want no posing, we don’t pose. If you want some posed portraits, they’ll be special, happen naturally and will take just the right amount of time. We’ll cover those family shots, the bridal party shots and the shots of your dog if you want them. There is spontaneous, creative photography and all in a relaxed way. You’ll have everything without feeling it’s just photos, photos, photos on your wedding day.

Award Winning Photography 

I’m very proud and passionate about my work. And whilst I never think about ‘awards’ while I’m with you I work really hard researching and testing myself against the best in the business and am pleased to say that I’ve been awarded by three of the major international photography bodies.
