Perhaps the fact I have a name for each of my cameras says more about me than this page ever could. At the age of 6 I achieved my first recognition when I was awarded the prestigious Blue Peter Badge in a photography competition. It was only later in life that my very own dad confessed to taking the winning image. From that moment on I would embark in a quest to redeem my artistic integrity. I’d like to think that somewhere down the line a negative developed in my noggin & blessed me with the ability to make the world look beautiful. But the reality is my love of photography has always existed & my adoration of the still image is an extension of my passion for film. After studying a BA in film & TV production & realising I’m not the next Wes Anderson.
Beginnings within fine art & travel photography turned into a hunger for photojournalism. This fast paced & emotive style naturally led me to wedding photography. “I’d like to think that somewhere down the line a negative developed in my noggin & blessed me with the ability to make the world look beautiful.” I’ve been accused of turning up to weddings with a camera in every pocket.
Unlike a lot of photographers, I still shoot film alongside digital. Seeing a couples expression as you take out a plastic camera & revelling in the unpredictability of the medium only fuels my aesthetic. My style is relaxed, quirky, vintage & spontaneous. I believe in capturing those fleeting moments of emotion, expression… Love. Of course having a few laughs along the way is always a bonus. Weddings for me are about family, they’re about those brief moments of interaction in between the staged portraits of old. Of course everyone wants that posed image of their 90 year old Nan smoking a cebratory Cuban cigar like Fidel Castro. But for me it’s about adding a twist to that formal side of portraiture. “I’ve been accused of turning up to weddings with a camera in every pocket.” Far from the standard single genre websites of other image makers. I believe in displaying my fine art & travel photography alongside my wedding portfolio.
Beyond the Megapixel lies a memory framed & beyond the image lies a story. Narrative within the image is as powerful as the written word & it’s this I try to convey within my art. I specialise in affordable non traditional vintage reportage & alternative documentary style wedding photography, fine art giclée prints plus rights managed stock imagery in Saltaire, Leeds & the Yorkshire area.
