National Magazine Photographer / Wedding and Portrait Photographer for Kent
Covering Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Broadstairs, Faversham, Ashford, Margate, Ramsgate .....
Before I was born my dad worked in a camera shop and photographed the odd wedding. This meant he had various 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 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 you to people in a unique way and tells a story that, at it’s best, is a true story covering the best and most emotional bits. 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 Herne Bay, Whitstable, Canterbury, Broadstairs .... anywhere within a 30 mile radius of home.
