I do cover other areas of the UK for an extra cost. (see wedding and portrait info for details)
Before I was born my dad worked in a camera shop and photographed the odd wedding. This meant he had photography equipment that I started to play with when I was about 10. I annoyed family, friends and pets by taking too many photos, and then printing them in a darkroom my dad had set up in a cupboard at my grandma’s. This then became a business I set up at school. I’d take studio pictures of pupils at break, printing them in the science block’s darkroom at lunch.
I recently received a message from an old school friend on Facebook – ‘and to think…..it all began as a business enterprise project at school !! I still have those photos !!’. I never studied photography or had a career plan, it’s just something I’ve always done and how great that years later people still have my photos. It’s addictive and exciting. It connects me to people in a unique way and tells a story that, at it’s best, is a true story covering the best and most most precious parts of life. I work for magazines and commercial clients around the world, but I still annoy family, friends and especially pets (my dogs are like professional models !). I just really like taking photos.
As well as my commericial and magazine work, I'm now offering my photography skills to the people of Kent. I live in Herne Bay on the Kent Coast and I'm really excited about building my business to include wedding and portrait commissions from clients in Kent.
