A Little About Me:

 

 

 

My interest in Photography began when I studied it in college; I was hooked from day one and it felt very natural to be behind the camera.

 

I went on to complete a Degree in Photography where I was given the freedom to develop and hone my skills. After University I worked in studios doing mostly commercial shoots for TK Maxx, Dorothy Perkins and Crombie.

 

I always had that niggling feeling that I wanted to branch out and spend more time on work that was both inspiring and creative. At the time I was doing bits and pieces of freelance work for more artistic clients, such as Vidal Sassoon and music photography which appeared in NME and Rock Sound magazines.

 

In '09 I shot a wedding for a family friend - that's where it all started. I created 83Weddings to cater for those who wanted a break away from the traditional approach, to have an informal and personal touch to their wedding photography.

 

I love to capture natural shots from the day, the moment's people don't always get to see and experience. Wedding photography is a wonderful opportunity to document a unique place in time, to tell a narrative of the day that will remain as a keepsake.

 

On a personal note, I enjoy real ales, collecting records, listening to BBC 6Music and gigging with my band. At home I love to cuddle up on the sofa with my wife and watch our favourite TV shows Orange Is The New Black, Stranger Things, Freaks & Geeks and First Dates. I also love to travel, to experience different cultures and explore new places, but I also enjoy coming back to Leeds and Yorkshire. As a newlywed myself, having just got married in June 2016 I can appreciate first hand all the planning and organising you'll be putting into your very own day and can emphasise with all that's involved.
