A bit about me...

We understand that being your photographer is a huge responsibility and privilege. You are trusting us with the biggest day of your lives and with the only thing that will last for years to come. Therefore, it is important that you know exactly what you are going to get on your big day.

How I started in photography

It was a childhood dream to become a photographer. “I have been taking photos since 1966. Being an amateur showed I needed to learn more, so I started training in 1976.

After my service in the Royal Air Force I was asked by my friend who was a disc jockey in a top Leeds night club. “I need some promotional photos.” I took them. He liked them so much, he showed them to his friends, who were in the same business. Then I was asked to photograph the local heat of Miss England. They asked me to take photos of them, and showed their friends, and so on. A girl friend of one of the Disco manager asked me to take a model portfolio of her. She showed her friends… and so on.  I was asked to photograph Miss Pernot Contest at a local night club. I never paid for an advert. I never paid to get in any disco or nightclub. That Canon A1 camera got me in places and situations I wouldn’t have thought possible.  I have upgraded to the latest professional digital equipment, Canon of course.
