My 1st memories of photography was my dad taking photographs with his box brownie and Kodak film cameras! I 1st used a Kodak Instamatic as a kid and bought my first SLR [ a Zenith EM and then Olympus OM system Single Reflex Camera] when I was 18. Seizing events, relationships, celebration & success in peoples lives and other wonders that surround us has and always will be the core of my photographic style.
I am clear that Photography is more than a click of the camera shutter! Photography, whether it's using your mobile phone, cardboard pin hole camera or something more heavy like a DSLR , is a desire to connect, make a relationship between me, as the photographer and the person or even object! This, along with a a decent set of communication skills, enjoying a natter and showing a respectful manner helps get the very best in my images the second you press the shutter!
I have a diverse client base and have always chosen my business model on this! My BUZZ is listening to my customers brief and engaging them in a journey that ends with a set of compelling & desirable images.
Everyone, in business or away from work, has 'life milestone occassions'. I connect with those I photograph in ways they quickly relax,connect & simply give me their best, time after time! I strive to be THE PHOTOGRAPHER who's 'easy to get on with! My respectful & friendly conduct is never compromised!
I'm pride myself as different to many press & commercial photographers; placing importance on getting the 'right photographs' and going the extra mile to acheive this. I am very personable creating bespoke image portfiolios at a mutually agreeable rate. Stock images are less than ideal.
My photographic style is relaxed, creative & informal and my business approach is flexible; showing a clear interest in your commission brief or Event. I live in Hull and cover photographic commissions across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and further by appointment.
I love the outdoors, walking, cycling, not too far! I try to make time to pamper myself, or my wife, at the local ESPA! I am a family man with children and proud to consider myself as a grandfather too!
