What do you love most about your job?

I have always been a creative and outgoing person, and back in 2010 I decided to take what I am passionate about "out into the world", and now I totally adore my job capturing moments for my clients. Weddings are my favourite type of shoot, as every one is different. It also gives me an opportunity to stand back and let events take place in front of me. In the years I have been capturing Weddings, I have loved all my couples as they are all unique.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My wife Laura and I were married at the stunning Crondon Park wedding venue, Essex and like a lot of weddings, the day FLEW by and before we knew it we were sitting around the pool on our honeymoon in the baking heat of the truly amazing country that is Thailand! In the following weeks we received our wedding photos and my reaction was….they are nice……just nice. I didn’t at one point go WOW look at our wedding photos! These “okay” photos were distributed amongst friends, and so began the journey of taking photos for other people and prompted me to spend a bit of our wedding gift money on a Canon DLSR camera…..and this was the beginning of my photography career.

I am a self-taught photographer. I learn best by doing, and for 12 months after my wedding I took my new camera out and took photos of everything, perfecting my skills with landscapes, macro work and the business of capturing photos of people. In this time, Laura and I discovered that we were going to have our first child which I was over the moon about and when he arrived we found were approached my numerous photographic business’s asking if we wanted pictures done of our child. The prices of these photos appeared to be remarkably high with very little product at the end of it. Despite reservations, we did have a couple of shoots with some of these photographers and we did encounter a few things. First : On one shoot they “photo shopped” my sons face so much he looked like a porcelain doll and it didn’t even look like him Second : Another shoot he had a bogey hanging out of his nose, they said “we don’t Photoshop anything!” I then decided I could do a much better job of it and took some photos of my own, which were infinitely better.

A friend saw these pictures I took and said to me “would you take some photos of my friends’ children for a gift?” I have never looked back after this moment and I began to build my skills and portfolio as a photographer. Things then took a remarkable turn when several people I worked with were getting married and asked me if I would take some photos for them. My first wedding was just an evening shoot, and I got paid in burgers…..sounded good to me (unfortunately I cannot offer this to customers today)! I learnt so much from these informal jobs, not just about camera settings, but more about how to interact with people on their wedding day to get the best and most natural shots.

Things progressed swiftly and in the following 12 months I captured 3 or 4 weddings for friends I worked with, they then recommended me to their friends and so by the power of word of mouth advertising, my second vocation has progressed to a professional level, and over the last few years my photography and business has grown from strength to strength. I have never been so busy and it is all thanks to you that I am getting more and more enquiries which is fantastic.

Why should our clients choose you?

With so many photographers out there, I know that it is difficult to choose who will capture those special moments for you, whether it is a portrait shoot, or a wedding. I think it’s important that you know who is going to be involved in your event. A wedding photographer in particular will be around you all day, and it’s integral that you feel comfortable with them, and most important for you to know you can communicate easily with them. I am far from a shy person, however there will obviously be times when the photographer needs to “stand back” and let things happen rather than set it up and the candid shots can sometimes prove to be the favourites. A photographer should merge into your wedding day and bring out the best moments for you to keep and enjoy for years to come. I love this job and it’s my passion to provide the best service, with the best photos possible, and most of all, be me.
