I was bitten by the photography bug at about the age of 12, when I was given an old (even then) Vest Pocket Hawkeye camera (one of the ones with bellows that fold out). Fast forward to the present day and here I am, a full time professional photographer with, what I consider has to be, one of the best jobs in the world. Why is it one of the best jobs in the world? Well for several reasons;
Firstly it’s not like work for me, I’ve realised, contrary to popular belief, that it is possible to mix business and pleasure.
Secondly, I get to spend time with people during a very special, and often very significant, time during their lives and they’ve chosen me to share it with (and capture it for) them. How fantastic is that!?
Thirdly, finally and most importantly for me, I love, yes LOVE to see the fantastic reactions I get when clients sit down and look at the beautiful images that I have captured of (and for) them.
A bit more about me….
If you’ve read this far, thank you, and I guess you really do want to know a bit more about me. ….I’m a forty ahem something father of two beautiful girls and am very happily married to my wife and best friend Katie. Born and brought up in Warwickshire, I left the county after my A levels and spent many happy years away, all over the UK and latterly in Yorkshire for 20 years. My siblings starting their own families was just the draw we needed to bring us back ‘home’ to Warwickshire in 2010. I’m blessed to be doing a ‘job’ that I truly love.
