Relaxed, natural, vibrant and creative wedding photography
Greater Manchester, , england
As cliched as it surely sounds, I really do feel like I was born to be a photographer. I have always been fascinated by various art forms, but unable to actually draw to any decent standard, photography became the natural way for me to express myself. I am not ashamed to admit I love the process of continual learning, am always striving to better my work, and genuinely get excited before every wedding I photograph about what may be captured
By nature, I am much happier fading into the background than being the centre-of-attention, which I think actually benefits me in my work. And whilst not much of a dancer myself, I have been known to very quietly (and some would say, badly) sing to myself while working if the band strikes up a particular favourite (my real 'guilty pleasure' being, but not limited to, Teenage Dirtbag. Because I'm cool like that. Ahem.)
In terms of my modus operandi, I very much like to fade into the background as much as humanly possible, and just capture events as they naturally unfold (where possible, with a rather big lens that allows me to stand far back, well out of the way!). I believe its the only way to capture the real, raw emotions we all experience, and if I am barely noticed at all, I consider that a good thing. The one time I do like to get in the thick of the action, however, is on the dancefloor, as I believe it’s the only real way to properly pick up on - and capture - the atmosphere.
