Like all successful businesses, mine developed from an early passion. Back at university I studied graphic design, but almost by accident, every one of my projects somehow followed a photography theme. Realising I’d found something that I loved, I started a night course studying film photography (yes film was still a thing then) that would feed my obsession and allow me to make the most of every spare hour available to me.
In 2011 I started up my own business and I have been photographing weddings and family portraits ever since. Hungry for more (and considering how fast technology has moved on) I took up videography too in 2017.
I consider myself to be extremely lucky. I surround myself with super interesting and creative people. This gives me the opportunity to capture Salsa dancers, yoga instructors and rockabilly fashionistas through film and photography. I also work with numerous restaurants and bars to help them promote their businesses with material that really gets to the heart of their brand.
And what photographer doesn’t want to capture incredible architecture and diverse cultures through their camera? I have a real love for travel and discovering exciting new places (although something about Havana seems to bring me back time and time again). Since 2007 I have been documenting my globe-trotting with photography and video diaries.
As demand for the business picked up, I partnered with two fantastic girls who share my passion for capturing the perfect moment. Elaine and Holly are extremely talented and we work together on bigger events, like weddings or large-scale dance events, to ensure we shoot every second of the action from the best possible angles.
Another recent development is my collaborative work. I now work with Lindsay, of Lindsay Ashton Photography, to create a kick-ass photography and film wedding package, as well as Emma of Emma Boyle Photography to create a slick food & drink media package designed for restaurants, bars and cafes.
I take an individual approach to every job I’m working on, to ensure that you get the very best results for your event. If you have any questions about my video and photography packages, or if you’d like to get in touch for a custom quote, my contact details are below.
Thanks for taking a look around.
