Education: BA (Hons) Photography
A bit about moi
I was born in Cornwall and still live here at the age of 41. I’m married to a nurse called Nina, who works in an emergency department. At the end of a shift she runs a warm bath and I listen to her unload her day. It’s safe to say that I have an acute understanding of how precious life is, and how important it is to have the foresight to photograph the people, places, and things we love.
I’m blessed with a 4yr old daughter named Amélie, and a Springer Spaniel called George. They both pounce on me as soon as I walk in the door. It never gets old.
I live near the North Coast, in a village called Mount Hawke, and continue to juggle my life around the surf forecast.
I’m a sensitive, empathic type, and have a naturally high spacial awareness. Which is great for reverse parking, crying over the movie Cinderella, and being a wedding photographer.
I would say to you that I am going to deliver above your expectations, but that would render your expectations beyond what is possible to deliver. If you like what I did there then maybe we’re a good fit for each other. Get in touch, here’s my email email@example.com or even better call me on 07881817275
Style-wise; think a photojournalist’s eye meets a graphic designers need for balance, with a little of Martin Parr’s wondering in the wings waiting for artistic coincidences thrown in.
Approach-wise; I always bring in a little of the Cornish landscape when I can, as I assume that’s part of the reason for choosing Cornwall as your wedding location. I opt to arrange myself rather than arrange you. That way you experience your wedding, and not a 10 hour photo shoot. This approach assures authentic captures, and gives me the challenges I need to keep me on my toes. That’s when the magic happens.
There’s nothing I like better than seeing my work help grown and define a brand. I welcome the chance to consult at concept development, or you can hand me a brief and sit back and relax. I as comfortable handling complex lighting in the studio as I am floating in the surf with my water housing. I’ve been trusted as the principle photographer on the Royal Rota. Flown overseas to shoot look books. Turned around PR photos for national press in an instant. Whatever it is, I bring the same honesty, reliability and performance to each brief.
