Wirral, Merseyside, Merseyside(2 Reviews)
I am the owner and lead photographer at Ab photography and I am extremely proud to be able to share my journey with you and create new and lasting memories for all my clients. As you can see I am certificated to national diploma level and to ensure I stay up to date with this fast moving sector I regularly update my CPD and attend training where possible. I believe a photographer should never rely on experience and rest on the laurels and continue to strive for improvement.
I have worked professionally since 2015 following my completion of the the Professional Diploma in photography and subsequent advanced diploma in photography. I made this decision as there are a lot of "self trained" photographers out there and it was incredibly important to me that my clients received the very best of service and I was able to perform to the very best of my abilities.
I love to work creatively and I'm always keen to try out new ideas as well as maintain a beautifully classic and "front cover" style to any occasion. My photography inspiration has been born through those early classic film era's, imagine Munroe, Grant and those deep film noir movies of years gone by. These days we can be creative with digital imagery and as well as a classic wedding tale, bright and bold I love to work in this classic way.
Wedding Photography, Portraits, Engagement shoots, Family shoots. I thrive in each situation, I look forward to working with you soon.

Ab photography UK Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
My love of photography began as a youngster, watching old school black and white movies and from there being inspired by modern photographers who love that classical film and photo journalistic look to an image. With this in mind my best images I believe have come from two things "patience" and "timing" The worlds best photo journalists know when the right image is the "one" or to wait that few more seconds, minutes as it may be on its way. I believe wedding photography is the same, the very best images are full of emotion and feeling, this cannot be created or rushed.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
I love to really get to know my clients in terms of the meaning of their day. Wedding and portrait photography is about more than a set of standard pictures of one day in time. We are hired to tell a story, make our own movie if you like! I always ask my clients what their inspiration for the day is, any significant history or meaning to them. Why they selected the venue? where they are from and grew up. An example of this is that I shot a wedding in Liverpool a couple of years ago. The Bride had grew up in Liverpool but the groom was from Leeds, he was unable to get his Nan to the venue on the day and as such I knew I had to get little pieces of his home town feeling into the day. So you see how we begin to build a picture. You don't hire a photographer, you hire a story teller, writer, artist and biographer. You should be a little concerned if your photographer takes no interest in your life.
What do you love most about your job?
I have always been a creative mind and love to push my creativity as far as possible. My love for movies and the black & white art as well as writing has long been "hobbies" of mine. I am now in a very fortunate position that I am paid and support my own family through my passions and loves. Every shoot has a reason, a meaning and my time with any individual is positive and full of happiness and joy. How many people can say that about their own jobs? I certainly believe this job is one of the greatest you can do!
What inspired you to start your own business?
Photography is about perception and personal feeling and creativity. Working for somebody else in this industry is important to learn your trade, as is the correct training and development, which Is why I am currently on my third diploma with the Institute of Photography, However to truly be in charge of your own images and be the "director" of your own tale you have to go alone sometimes and hearing the tales of world renowned photographers like Ted Viera (Las Vegas) and Kevin Mullens (London) really does push me to be better each day.
Why should our clients choose you?
I believe in my vision to create a timeless tale of love, and happiness against any backdrop of emotion and feeling of an occasion. I want a couple to look at their photographs many years down the line and instantly "feel" the same emotions as they did on that day. Clients should choose me with a guarantee that I will give everything to making their magic day last for a lifetime.
