Creative & natural education photography

As well as my photography experience, my previous professional career working in higher education allows me a unique understanding of the pressures and requirements of my clients. My flexible and proactive approach means I can attend at the optimum time for you, and even give suggestions on ideas which you may not have considered.

I do not see my role as just the guy pressing the shutter button, to get the best images and crucially in the most efficient and pain free manor, takes a practical, logical and investment in understanding my clients brief. ​Like all of my photography, I strive to capture natural and real moments. Cheesy poses take a back seat, and bland & anonymous stock-style images need to apply.

I respect the need for traditional images where requested, but as well as this I specialise in more creative and interesting images with the purpose of making your website, social media posts and marketing material stand out from the crowd. ​

Sports

As a lifelong sports fan, and passionate footballer until injury called time, I understand what competitive sport entails and how to get the most dramatic moments.

Graduation

One of the biggest landmarks in a young persons life. My candid wedding day experience shines through here as I snap all those real and happy reactions.

Architecture

As a JIB and CIBSE card holder, with a City & Guilds NVQ3 in electrical engineering, I know my way around a construction site, new building or ground break. Carefully balancing candid shots with organising people politely but without wasted time for the best images.

Events

My broad and extensive photography experience and technical understanding allows high end quality images in all environments from dark evening awards ceremonies, to outdoor events. The focus is to always get to the heart of the subject matter and portray it in its most positive light.
