I have had a passion for capturing light for years but I fell into paid photography by accident. The first paid job I did was a wedding for a friend’s brother who’s wedding photographer didn’t show up on the day. That was back when I was 16 and from that day I knew I wanted to be a professional photographer.
I photograph people, why? Because people are amazing, I love capturing their emotions, characters and quirks. No two people are the same so whether it’s a bride at her wedding, a business owner’s headshot or a surfer paddling out past the break I want the image of that person to give a glimpse of who they are.
I offer informal, contemporary and documentary styled wedding photography in Devon and the South West of England; aiming to record the wedding day in a manner that encapsulates the characters of the Bride & Groom, as well as their guests. Resulting in a final album, that brings back those intimate, once in a lifetime experiences. I look to capture the emotion and feel of a wedding day with the utmost discretion. The majority of my time is spent recording the moments that happen naturally, those moments where people are unaware I’m taking the photograph.
I also offer commercial photography; this again can often take shape as documentary photography capturing what a business is about in the day to day (Day in The Life Of) workings of the business. Another aspect of commercial work is product photography, making sure I capture a product accurately but also creatively to help show the product in its best light. Commercial photography is about brand image and for me the brand image starts with the business owner and employees; this is where corporate headshots come in to play. There are so many businesses out there that use a mobile phone selfie as their business headshot. Is that really the image you want to send out to a client to represent you and your brand? I offer corporate headshots and these don’t have to be your standard black background headshots but they will definitely scream professionalism and sit perfectly within your brand image.
The last area I cover as a photographer is portrait work and if you have read this far you might have guessed I am not a stand stiffly in front of the camera portrait man. No, I’m a “let’s have fun” and create some beautiful images that reflect the kind of person you are. I call these reportage portrait sessions; these can be a single person, a couple or a family reportage session. They are great, it’s about basing the session around an activity or two that will bring out who you are, your character and capturing some great fun informal images.
I hope that gives you an idea of what I am about and if anything I offer could be of service to you please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
