I'm sam,

So, you want to know more about the guy behind the lens? I'm a proud Yorkshireman; tea-drinking, flat cap wearing, cricket-loving.

When I was younger I wanted to be a footballer, a cricket player, or an astronomer. I finally decided that what I really wanted was to be an actor. Cue years of "you have to get a proper job". Groan.

Always pretty headstrong, I didn't listen. I trained as an actor, and spent a number of years performing throughout the UK and even on the sunny island of Rhodes for a summer. Now I tell stories in a slightly different way, using all that storytelling knowledge and experience and bringing it to my photography.

Away from the camera, you'll often find me reading a good book, perhaps with the occasional glass of Rioja/Malbec in hand. I'm still big into music, and play the saxophone when time allows... I know, I know, I need to practice more.

I'm a big dog lover (here's my little man, Oslo, on the left) adore woodland and country walks, and have a soft spot for custard doughnuts and sticky toffee pudding.

Some facts about me

- Outside of weddings, I'm rarely seen without a flatcap - cliched Yorkshireman, I know.

- I'm a massive jazz fan. Whilst everybody else was listening to Arctic Monkeys I was listening to Frank Sinatra.

- Dogs love me, bring your dog to your wedding and I'll likely end up taking more pictures of them than you.

- I adore 80s rock classics, and ABBA (loud and proud)

- I qualified as a table tennis coach (well, many years ago)

I put as much effort into post-production as I do on your big day. I spend hours individually going through your images, colour correcting, tidying, and choosing between colour and black & white - all your wedding photographs will have my signature style to really show off your big day

On the day I work in a non-obtrusive and photojournalistic way, but I also like to try to be a calming presence on your wedding day. I know being in front of a camera can be daunting, and I won't expect you to carry out pose after pose, but will give you subtle guidance where I can to get those breathtaking images you will want on your mantelpiece.
