I live in the beautiful county of Dorset, close to Wareham. I am married to my beautiful wife, Jacqui. I grew up in Wimborne before moving west a little after meeting Jacqui. I love the outdoors and meeting new people. I got drawn to sailing as a young kid and still enjoy sailing today. I also enjoy walking, archery and of course photography. I’ve been snapping away with a camera all my life. I love capturing that special moment. The joy of seeing someone’s reactions to that timeless image of a loved one is immeasurable.
I prefer to capture those special moments in an environment that is comfortable and familiar to the individual rather than a cold studio. I can travel just about anywhere to capture that special moment of you in a natural, relaxed setting of your choice.
Everyone hates sitting in a studio faking a smile or pose. I use a mobile studio kit enabling me to come to you, saving you time and energy. I can set up in as little as around 5 square metres or simply use your environment as the setting. The advantage of coming to you means less stress for you getting to a studio. I can come to you or we can go to your special place. This means not only do we capture that special moment, but it fits in and around you, in a place you love. It also means when working with children or pets they are in an environment they are used to and will be more relaxed.
After something a little different?
Why not take a look at my artistic portfolio. I can take the perfect photo of you or a loved one and turn the image into something even more special. Alternatively, do you have a digital image you would like turned into something special? Get in touch to find out more.
I have undertaken City and Guilds assured training in advanced portrait and wedding photography and also digital manipulation.
Unlike a lot of photographers, I do not limit the number of images available to the client. I simply snap away whilst I’m with you. Afterwards I process the images doing any minor editing or cropping before making them available to you. You can then download all of the final images with the rights to print as you please, or share them with friends and family, all included in the shoot. If you prefer, I am happy to make the images available on a USB stick.
