I am a wedding, studio, event and equestrian photographer based in Wiltshire, covering not only the local area but all over the UK and occasionally Europe. I feel immensely privileged and proud to earn my living from photography, something that has always been my passion.
Photography has been in my blood since a child when I was given my first camera and discovered not only how much I enjoyed taking photos, but how much pleasure they gave to other people. After many years of pursuing photography as a hobby I took the difficult decision to leave the security of working for a large corporate employer to branch out on my own and follow my passion.
I love all aspects of photography and am lucky to have a very varied portfolio of clients most I have worked with for many years.
Equestrian photography is something I love whether its photographing at Badminton Horse trials, Royal Ascot or a local show or pony club event. I took it up seriously about ten years ago after meeting my wife who introduced me to the joys of owning horses. If you can’t beat them, join them. I cover many different aspects of Equestrian photography including Horse Trials, Horse Shows, Dressage and Pony Club events and Camps
I have photographed weddings all over the UK in venues as diverse as a small country Church and St Paul's Cathedral for clients from all walks of life. It is always a privilege to be asked to photograph someone’s wedding and I never lose sight of the fact that it is the Bride and Groom’s special day and not a photoshoot.
Event photography is also a big part of my business and I am fortunate to work with some of the best event management companies in the country. As a result I have worked at some of the most prestigious venues in the country on some amazing events.
Studio photography and Model portfolios is an aspect of my job that I love undertaking, and I am very lucky to have access to a really well equipped studio on the outskirts of Bristol.
