Thank you for coming to my website.

I am based in Preston and being a photographer and videographer is a job that I love to do because you get to capture special moments in people's lives. My style is creative, modern and fun and I always try to give my pictures the 'wow' factor. After being lucky enough to travel the world photographing people from Australia to Europe and across the UK, I have seen many things and enjoyed every aspect of it. 

I first started off in the Fashion industry and I have been to many places around the world photographing fashion shoots.  It was an awesome experience to do this and I  made many friends along the way

With this experience and my passion to photograph landscapes and wildlife, I decided to venture into wedding photography and videography. Photography and videography are really an extension of your personality so I wanted to photograph and film my weddings in a style that was natural and fun.

I also have a passion for flying my drone and I am a fully qualified and fully insured drone flyer. Flying a drone can give you an extra view of amazing sceneries that you can’t achieve by being on the ground.

I have been doing photography for many years and completed a City And Guilds qualification course about photography. I have had my work published and my photos have appeared on the front page of the Lancashire Evening Post and featured in the Lancashire Life Magazine.

 

 

 

 

 

Away from taking photos and filming, I still like to be creative. This picture is of me at Halloween (left picture). You don’t know how long it took me to do this but I thought I may as well make the effort. Luckily this type of creativity has been transferred into my photography skills so getting dressed up like this was worth it in the end.

 

My favourite comedies of all time have to be Monty Python and Blackadder, but The Office and Family Guy are also in my Top 10.

 

With a Bsc(Hons) Computing degree and a great passion for photography and videography, I am a geek with a camera and a geek with a computer.
