My first real study into the art of photography was studying for my A Level in Photography. Here I learnt invaluable knowledge in using a 35mm film SLR, learning traditional techniques, darkroom experience and ‘learning to see’.
It was a few years later thanks to the generosity of my parents I received my first digital SLR – a Nikon D60 which I still use to this day along side a professional D7200. With this I began taking images of local sport and landmarks and soon I was asked if I would like to photograph my first wedding. Nervously, I accepted a new passion was born.
With an expanding portfolio and exposure my wedding schedule became busier with 2015 my busiest year to date.
When not behind the lens at weddings of behind a PC as a CAD draughtsman, I’m walking my dog at local landmarks and landscapes. I very rarely leave my camera at home.
Photographing my own pet, Pippa gained national recognition when I won the Go Outdoors Get Britain Outdoors photography competition. Since then I have photographed other dogs on commission and now offer Dog Studio Prints, set up within my portable pop up Dog Studio.
What’s ahead for me, who knows.. Maybe a full time photography career but In the mean time I’m going to enjoy what I’m doing now. Capturing personalities, memories and encapsulating scenery.
