About Me

Hi guys thanks for stopping by my photography portfolio, a place where I feature a selection of my favourite images from recent shoots. I hope you enjoy looking at the images as much as I enjoyed shooting them.

I first took a keen interest in photography when I got married in 2011, watching the photographer taking pictures of myself, my wife and my guests really interested me. I remember thinking to myself it must be a nice job taking pictures of people on the happiest day of their lives. After my wedding a bought my first DSLR camera and starting attending training courses and taking pictures of anything and everything to develop my skills and understanding of photography. In 2015 my daughter was born and I found a new love for portrait photography which later led to creating a small photo studio in my garage, where I have carried out a number of different types of photoshoots. As you can tell from my portfolio, I have gained experience in portrait photography, newborn shoots, fashion and pet shoots. Many of my photoshoots have taken place within my hometown of Chesterfield, Derbyshire and I am lucky enough to have the Peak District right on my doorstep which makes a great backdrop for any photoshoot.
I like to take creative photos and draw inspiration from just about anywhere. I try to make my photos interesting, artistic, real and fun and I always put time into planning all of my shoots to ensure I deliver the best possible images for you the customer.
As I’ve previously stated I am interested in wedding photography and will be looking to branch out into this market within 2017. Over the past few years I’ve learnt how to get the best out of people and the best out of my photos and I’m looking forward to transferring these skills into wedding photography- creating timeless images for happy couples. I’m looking forward to taking awesome portraits of the bride and groom along with the family portraits using my own unique photography and editing style. That said my main objective is to give you the customer exactly what you want because after all it’s your big day not mine.
So if any of you guys visiting my page like my stuff and would like a portrait shoot, wedding, celebration, newborn or pet shoot please feel free to give me a call or drop me an email.
Thanks for stopping by
