Returning to wedding and portrait photography after several years off, currently rebuilding portfolio and experience. Also time student for art photography degree course.

Type business: Semi Professional Photographer

My photographic style: Sensitive to the environment I'm working in, a combination of classic and contemporary.

My greatest strengths: Collaborative, personable, fun, quirky. Puts guests and subjects at ease.

I have been in photography: 25 years+

How I got started in photography: Trained in wedding and commercial photography in my early 20's.

My photographic skills: 25 years experience in a variety of wedding, commercial, landscape and contemporary art photography.

Works very well with alternative cultures and minority groups.

My personality: Personable, amiable, genuine, chatty, quirky, open.

Geographic areas I cover: Derbyshire, East Midlands, Glastonbury

Venues I frequently attend: Quirky, unusual, characterful, outdoors.

I found inspiration from: Nature, alternatives lifestyles, good hearted people whatever their background.

Success in photography: Megalithic Portal - Photography winner in 2014

Photographic training: Current undergraduate studies with OCA BA(Hons) Photography.

Wedding photography training with Alan Thompson Photography, Nottingham in 1990's.

My interests outside photography: British mythology; Megalithic Britain; Druidry, Bhuddism.

Major events: Once asked to do the photography for a death / Buddhist celebration of life - perhaps one of the more unusual assignments!

Testimonials: “Absolutely love our wedding photos...thank you soooooo much”. Rachael, West Midlands

“The photos are brilliant, thanks”, Mark, Derbyshire

Why I like the SWPP: A platform to engage with and learn. Progressive. Annual trade show much better focussed than consumer photo shows,

Tagline: Photographer inspired by good natured people...and nature itself.

Future plans: Continue to develop my wedding practice, especially with minority and new age groups e.g. pagan handfastings and civil ceremonies. Also to do more commercial work and environmental portraiture which I enjoy.
