I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember, in fact I cannot remember a time when I didn't have a camera in my hand. Inspired by my late father and his passion for photography I soon got my own camera, albeit a cheap 110 film camera from Boots. Over the years I have had numerous cameras, sticking mainly with Canon, but I have never lost the passion to capture that magic moment.
I guess my love of photography came from my late father. I remember his camera well; it was a Zenit-E, a former Soviet brand and built like a tank! My father loved photography and always had his camera close by, coming from a large family there were always family gatherings and he always took plenty of pictures. It is lovely to look back at his old pictures and it brings back happy memories.
Photography is how I met my gorgeous wife Kim, this is a passion we both share and it brings us lots of joy. Kim started her photography journey back in 2017, which is when we first met, soon becoming a couple.
I have, over the years, shared my knowledge with her and she has grown into an amazing photographer. Kim has a knack of capturing something a little different.
Over the last few years our photography has taken us on a more professional course. We love to make peoples memories come alive in images, and capturing these special moments is what we strive for. We love the buzz of a wedding day, capturing moments of the happy couples magical day. Kim acts as my 'sniper' getting shots that people do not always expect. We make a great team!
We also offer event and studio photography, from christenings to family portraits and lifestyle photography.
