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.)

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Located in Manchester, but love to travel

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been operating my business covering events for the last 6 years, mainly concentrated on wedding and function photography. I don't honestly know exactly how many weddings I've covered, but I'd guess somewhere between 100-150…...

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I like to bring a modern edge to a classic genre, creatively documenting all the emotion, the drama, the action and the fun of your big day in a completely unobtrusive manner (for the most part, you won't even know I'm taking my pictures!). I don't believe in awkward posing or forcing any issues, but much rather like to anticipate and capture events as they naturally happen, allowing me to create a full collection of images that genuinely reflect the beauty of your day 
Ultimately, Its your wedding. Its your big day. If I am barely noticed the entire time, that is how it should be!

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

My pictures are my credentials….does anything else matter??

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Not technically about myself, but as the great philosopher Hulk Hogan once said, 'Stay in school and eat your vitamins'
