“To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” Henri Cartier-Bresson.
"An image takes a moment to capture but the memory lasts a lifetime."
I picked up my first camera when I was about 8 or 9 and that was my parent's Kodak Box Brownie but I was disappointed when it jammed and just wouldn't wind on. Undeterred, I then moved to my mum's Ilford126 Ilfomatic and my journey into photography really started and I was hooked. As a child and into my early teens, I used various Instamatic cameras, my passion for photography never dwindled.
When I was18, my brother gave me his Halina Paulette 35mm rangefinder film camera and the pleasure I felt when developing my first black and white film in the darkroom, I can still smell the chemicals. I moved on to Film SLR cameras, developing (pun intended) my skills and eventually people started asking me to photograph their weddings and other special events, initially getting paid in film and the odd bottle of Whisky.
I still have a passion for Wedding photography, capturing special memories from the day and love seeing the look when I present the couple with their images a few weeks later. For a bespoke quote for your special day, please get in touch - minimum charges apply.
I now use FujiFilm cameras and have travelled extensively around the UK and beyond, capturing images from as far afield as Aruba, Tenerife and Mexico and as close to home as Conwy, Rhyl and Llandudno.
I have a favourite genre and that is street photography, shooting in black and white and in a square format which to my mind is perfect for street work, makes you concentrate on your subject rather than crop post process.
For any interested party, I will be running some Street Photography workshops so please get in touch to find out more.
