PASSION, it's all about passion.

I'm not talking about the passion shown between two lovers here, I'm talking about the passions stirred when you pick up your favourite bit of kit and head out to try and grab a few magical shots whether it's for your own pleasure or someone's big day. Sometimes you are lucky, sometimes you get nothing, sometimes it's a challenge with weather, terrain or people, and sometimes you are just blown away by what's in front of your lens. It doesn't stop there though as any photographer will tell you, that's just the beginning. Sometimes the work sorting and processing will take longer than the shoot, much longer. I'm not a Photoshop genius but I am a bit of a perfectionist - or I like to think I am - so 99% of my pictures are straight but I'll do my damnedest to eek the best out of each pixel whether it's the sparkle or colour in a Bride's eyes, a cloud in the sky or a feature on a landscape. Cameras, Lenses and Photography is a passion I've held since I was 11-12 years old and it's been one of the constants through my life.

On this site you'll find a broad mix of genres with personal work mixed in with the odd bit of 'pro' work. I've got Weddings/Events, Sports/Action, Landscape, Street, Travel and even a bit of Aerial photography so I hope you like what you see and thanks for coming by.
