Originally from Merseyside, I studied photography at Leeds College of Art and Design whilst jobbing for local culture magazines photographing the Leeds music scene. Being in a new city and having access to a dark room inspired my first outings in photography as a documentary street photographer.
I moved into shooting portraiture and wedding photography and quickly realised that the documentary style of wedding photography was the natural direction for me to take and I shoot exclusively in this style. I am only interested in the natural and unforeseeable moments that reveal themselves in front of the camera. For me, this is the essence of photography. It is the only way to create images that are full of sincerity, that reveal spontaneity and emotion in that way only photography can do. These are the elements that make an occasion something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Something that allows the viewer to appreciate and re-live that place in time, with all of its character and meaning, making permanent a fleeting moment that can be appreciated over and over again.
