I've been a Professional Photographer for over 25years, I find doing personal projects out of my comfort zone has expanded my knowledge and creativity, I have learned from some of the best photographers in the UK being a member of the two top organisations in the UK, I have achieved my associateship in Portrait and weddings and I will be entering for my fellowship hopefully this year.
I love creating images, pictures that tell a story, that record a moment of time. I'm a frustrated painter, so I love creating art with my camera, painting with light, my camera my easel and my lights my brushes, I love capturing the emotion in a persons face and sitting down and discussing a concept with a client, a mood and feel that they are after and I love seeing and presenting the finished product.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I do many different types of photography, wedding, portrait, family, commercial, business headshots, corporate image shots, product photography. I'm a people person and I feel I get the best from someone by putting them at their ease, also I know what I'm doing and I explain to the client what I'm doing and why it will make a difference as I go along, that way winning their trust and confidence.
