I am based in Yorkshire, with my wife and our two children. I studied Art and Design in Leeds but have always been drawn to photography.  My art background allows me to think creatively not only in picture composition but also when editing. I enjoy long walks, chess, astronomy and singing/playing my guitar and the piano.

I love all types of photography, especially corporate or family events, weddings and product photography for websites and brochures. I believe that whilst an image should be an honest and unscripted portrayal of a moment, it should also be thoughtfully composed and visually beautiful. 


I have a thorough, in depth knowledge of the technical side of photography and the ability to get the most out of my professional kit. For weddings and events I seek out those intimate and joyful moments, capturing the essence of the occasion. I love the natural shots that capture your soul - the inner you, the beauty people see.  My aim is to provide you with  a collection of photos you will cherish for the rest of your life, and when you look at them they evoke the same intense emotion that you experienced on the day.

I am highly personable with an infectious  personality and sense of humour.  Please do contact me for a no obligation chat about your requirements. (Fully insured and also DBS checked with current certificate).

I love the photo of me below with an incredibly fun bride from the summer.....
