A wedding client a few years ago noticed my Volvo car parked next to my Virago motorbike, and commented on the Yin and Yang! I’m careful but I also have a zest for life too. Photography is a wonderful way to express this. I see the moment but I also feel it too.
I have been a full time professional photographer for 20 years! I have always worked the same way, so fashions come and go but I stay true to what’s natural about you. My Wedding clients want to enjoy their day, but forget about the photography so I am a perfect choice as I capture it all quietly, unobtrusively and without any fuss.
Family Portraits are a particular favourite for me as I love being with children who are playing and exploring outdoors. As my sons are grown up its a lovely reminder of how much fun I used to have with my children. So for an hour you can forget all your responsibilities and play along! Beach visits- aren’t we spoilt for choice in the North east! or Parks, National Trust properties, or any favourite location of your choice.
There is no limit to the family size, and I photograph grandparents, parents and children often, especially when they all live in different locations and only manage to get together every now and then.
