Wedding Style & Approach
Style-wise; think a photojournalist’s eye meets editorial fashion, a sprinkle of the graphic designers need for balance, with a little of Martin Parr’s wondering in the wings waiting for artistic coincidences thrown in.
Approach; I always bring in a little of the Cornish landscape when I can, as I assume that’s part of the reason for choosing Cornwall as your wedding location. I opt to arrange myself rather than arrange you. That way you experience your wedding, and not a 10 hour photo shoot. This approach assures authentic captures, and gives me the challenges I need to keep me on my toes. That’s when the magic happens.
There’s nothing I like better than seeing my work help grown and define a brand. I welcome the chance to consult at concept development, or you can hand me a brief and sit back and relax. I as comfortable handling complex lighting in the studio as I am floating in the surf with my water housing. I’ve been trusted as the principle photographer on the Royal Rota. Flown overseas to shoot look books. Turned around PR photos for national press in an instant. Whatever it is, I bring the same honesty, reliability and performance to each brief.
