“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not!”
Dr. Seuss

I love that quote from the classic children's book. It just seems to sum up the solution to most of life's troubles. Care.

I may only be a lowly portrait photographer, but I do care a whole awful lot about what I do. After all, what's more important than your family? I can't think of a more meaningful thing to create than family portraits and wedding photos that touch your heart. Aren't they the first possession you would rescue from a fire? What...? Your iPad! Shame on you! ;-)

I’m not just helpful…
…As a full time professional photographer I spend a huge amount of time learning my craft so I can provide you with images that really speak to you and reveal the personalities of everyone involved. Over the years I’ve managed to hone my skills to a level enabling me to produce articles and photos for The BBC, CNN, The Wildlife Trust, The Royal National Institute for Deaf People and other esteemed organisations.

Here’s how I can help you...
Life moves pretty fast and family photos are your tangible connection to the past. How many times have you heard the following phrases?

- Kids grow up so fast!
- Our wedding day was over so quickly I barely remember it.
- My holiday is a blur; it was all over too soon.
- My dog is such a character, he does the cutest thing...

This is where I come in. Hiring a portrait and wedding photographer is about preserving your family legacy and permanently capturing a moment in your lives. It's about having photos created that are so special and meaningful to you that they give you chills whenever you look at them.

Family portraits and pets
Life moves along at an alarming rate. When you're doing those 3am baby feeds it may seem like time is dragging, but in a few quick months that baby will be a toddler and then, before you know it they'll be out the door, only to return home for birthdays and religious festivals. I can't help you slow down time, but I can help you look back on all those happy memories by providing you with wonderful family portraits and photos of your treasured pets.

I believe in the value of beautiful wall portraits of your family. When you have your photos printed to the appropriate size for your wall spaces and then mounted in exclusive hand-crafted frames they are transformed into works of art. The secret is that I care enough to put attention to detail into every step in the process. My photos are printed using inks and paper that's guaranteed not to fade for 200 years. The frames are the finest quality and unavailable on the high street. I get repetitive strain injury due to the hours I lavish over your photos in Photoshop. I don't put time limits on your portrait sessions, because you can't force those special moments. I also take the time to meet you ahead of the photography session so we can plan everything properly. The magic happens, because I care.

Wedding photography
Your wedding day only lasts a few hours and you'll find it hard to remember much about it. Particularly if you get smashed at the disco afterwards! But, if you have beautiful photos that capture every scene and every emotion, then you will be able to look back on your wedding day for a lifetime. I'll capture the smiles, the tears, the worries and the fears and you'll get a storyboard of the whole sumptuous experience.

Don't cut corners on your wedding photos, because fantastic memories are ultimately what a wedding is all about and gorgeous photos are the only way you'll be able to do those memories justice. Also (and I'll keep this between you and me!), if you like I can Photoshop your pictures so everything will look even more fabulous, including you.
So, keep your wedding memories safe and let me be your wedding photographer. I even offer a money back guarantee because I'm so confident you'll love them.

Photography training
Wedding photos and family portraits are one thing, but I'm assuming you don't want me to come on holiday with you! But, I can still help you with your travel photos. I provide one-to-one photography training, so that you can take photos just like mine. It's taken me years and lots of hard work to get up to this standard, but I can get you up to speed far quicker. You don't need to read dozens of books and magazines like I did. I have made many mistakes along the way and you can learn from my experience. I guarantee I will improve your photography immeasurably within the first lesson.

In no time at all you'll be able to excitedly show friends and relatives your stunning new photos and next time you go on holiday people will actually be pleased to see your work. They'll be even more jealous of your holiday too as your photos will actually do the place justice. No more disappointing sunsets, just happy memories and a new zest for life. Photography is a lovely hobby because it helps you notice and appreciate the people and the world around you, as well as the smaller things in life. This is a hobby that can actually earn you money. And remember, this is one-to-one training, so the course is tailored specifically for you. This means you'll develop at an alarming rate. I may have to stop coaching you if you start taking business off me though!
