Isn't this the bit where I'm supposed to write everything in the third person? Sorry to disappoint folks...
I'm a husband, father, businessman and lover of life in general. Aside from spending time with my fantastic family I enjoy the great outdoors, film, cooking, playing the guitar and the odd bit of computer geekery. I don't sleep very much, but then there's always too much to do and too little time so it seems to work for me. I come from a long line of night owls so I guess it's in the blood (along with a tri-generational photographic interest).
Photography has been an integral part of my life since childhood. I grew up cutting out adverts from magazines and travel supplements, creating my own mood boards and an ever growing wishlist of places to visit.
Subtle plays of light and shadow, positioning of models and the telling of a story from a single image ingrained themselves deep in my soul. To this day I'm sure I have a collection landscape calendar images tucked away in a folder somewhere that I have no doubt emulated over the years.
I love the challenge of photography, the intricacies and subtleties of the interplay of light on surfaces, sculpting it to soften skin, separate subjects and create interest in the image. It is a lifelong learning curve and I cherish every day.
So what makes me qualified to be your photographer? That is of course for you to decide. If passion for the creation of the image, and a strong desire to portray the subject in the best possible light is for you, then I hope I tick the box. If not, I wish you luck with your search and hope that you find the right photographer for you.
