I live in a little house called Shrub Cottage with my unruly dog Rufus, my beautiful wife Carla and my teeny tiny daughter Phoebe Rose (aka Feebs). I class myself as one of the ‘new breed’ of wedding photographers who aim to bring our clients a younger, fresher and completely cheese free approach to what we do! I love using my camera to capture almost anything and anyone…. but when not hiding behind the lens I listen to music…lots and lots of music.
What style of photography do I shoot ?… it could be classified as candid, contemporary, alternative or reportage style wedding photography…BUT my job is to tell the story of your day through my images “as it happened” with as little staging or choreographing as is possible. And after shooting so many ‘big days’ I have discovered that every wedding is unique and my approach must vary to take into account the emotions, personalities and everything that makes your day special (the little details, the big characters, the tears, the laughter, the sharp suits, the sparkly shoes, the silly dancing etc etc).
Although based in Buckinghamshire, I regularly shoot weddings in London, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Kent and Surrey and I am available for weddings throughout the whole UK and the rest of the planet upon request.
What first got me behind the camera? Well a complete phobia of posing in front of it. And it is this aversion towards forced smiles and poses that has developed the approach I bring to photography today.
