Hello – and thank you for visiting my website.

I’ve been a professional photographer for more than 15 years – and taking pictures of people is still what I like to do best. I lived and worked in the Caribbean for several years and have also shot weddings in the USA, Middle East and Europe – nowadays I’m based near Guildford in Surrey UK. I’m happy to travel, so if you’re planning a destination wedding do get in touch.

My approach to photography is to put clients at their ease and make the whole experience as relaxed and unstressful as possible. Often people do feel self-conscious when in front of a camera so I try hard to dispel that feeling, and of course create images that you will treasure for the future.

Most of the day though I am in “documentary” mode, looking for those special moments that tell the story of the day.

I’m a great believer in ongoing education so I regularly attend workshops and seminars to learn new tricks and improve my skills.

Before I became a photographer I worked in retailing and as a freelance software trainer, so I know the importance of good customer service and am comfortable working with a wide variety of people. I also used to write comedy sketches for BBC Radio shows, so hopefully I can make you laugh from time to time as well!

Get in touch!
