Portrait Photography

There is something about a portrait which is timeless. Whether it's for the family home, a relative, or to mark a milestone. I can travel to you, shoot on location, or within the studio. Whatever your choice, I can create something you will enjoy looking at for a lifetime.

My Story

Websites can be so impersonal, so let me break the ice. I am married with three energetic young children, two boys and a girl. They keep me busy whenever they can. My Grandad stuck a camera in my hand about 35 years ago, I have been in awe of what can be created ever since. I grew up using film with an old Praktica with just one lens and a roll of 24 exposures. My first job after leaving university was in a film processing laboratory where i learnt about developing, colours, and sticking those oval advice labels over everyone's prints. Nowadays, I use full frame Nikon digital cameras, with memory cards which can hold over a thousand photos and a bag full of lenses. If the light is rubbish, I can bring my own. I have a full range of lighting solutions for indoors and outdoors. I use the latest software for processing my photos and can deliver them to you in many formats, including prints, posters, acrylics and even aluminium sheets working alongside a high quality print lab.

Whatever you need photographing, and wherever you want it photographing I have the ability to capture the images you want. I am very relaxed, friendly and i dont take myself too seriously and am never too far from a cup of tea. I take my imagery very seriously, because it's for you. I will do what you need, when you need it, and at a price that will always be competitive. I will listen to you, take notes, and work with you to deliver your exact requirements.
