that's me, the one up the ladder...
With 35+ years of professional experience & knowledge to call on, I'm sure that I can bring a little colour, life, drama, humour & a sprinkling of creativity to your big day.
Quality photography can't be produced on a "conveyor belt", that's why I've always chosen to limit the number of wedding commissions that I accept each year.
This keeps our approach fresh, energetic & fully committed to each couple & occasion.
As a "wedding photographer" I'm a bit unusual, most of my work takes place in the weird world of advertising photography.**
I like to think this gives me a slightly different perspective & approach to wedding photography.
My Qualifications & Affiliations:
Fellowship, the highest level within the BIPP
Association of Photographers (AoP) &
Qualified European Photographer (FEP)*
I've served on the BIPP National Admissions & Qualifications Panel, have given dozens of demonstrations & presentations around the UK and have judged many
Regional & National Print Awards.
Commercial photography awards include:
"BIPP NW Photographer of the Year" &
"BIPP National Industrial Photographer"
But... TBH, it's dead easy picking up awards, there's always some outfit ready to give 'em out so, I mostly prefer to judge my work on what I do for my clients in the "real world".
My key advice for choosing a snapper:
Naturally, cost is always important but;
after the flowers have drooped,
the wedding cake is eaten &
the groom's suit no longer fits,
try & remember...
you, your children & your grandchildren
will still be looking at the photographs.
