you’re here because you want to know about me, so let’s go;
A FRIENDLY, DOWN TO EARTH YORKSHIREMAN
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 (my little man, Oslo, is below in the slides) adore woodland and country walks, and have a soft spot for custard doughnuts and sticky toffee pudding.
that’s not enough, you want more?!
I trained as an actor, and spent a number of years performing throughout the UK. I wanted to do serious drama like Shakespeare and Chekov, but ended up doing mostly musical theatre and production shows, as well as Jersey Boys tribute acts.
I've played the saxophone since I was 13 year old, although never practised quite enough. Jazz is my speciality. If someone hands me a saxophone on a wedding day, I mat be very tempted to play it.
I'm really keen to travel more than I have. Iceland, Norway, and Canada are at the top of my list.
I'm actually a qualified table tennis coach! Who's have thought?
why wedding photograpy?
Because who wouldn't enjoy being a wedding guest for a living? But on a more serious note, because memories matter. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your lives, and having the privilege to preserve those memories is something I will never underestimate.
