Describe how you got into photography.
My love and interest in photography came about in my early teens dare I say in the days of film and polaroids. Being as expensive as it was back then I didn't take nearly as many images as I wanted to. Nowadays anyone with a smart phone has a camera and the age of digital means endless images.Into adulthood getting married and having a family I realised that I just had a handful of images of me growing up. I was orphaned at an early age and I have no photos of me with my parents. As with many parents today and the age of digital I took and still take lots of photos of my children and family. In the back of my mind I am thinking how my children and their children will view the images in the future. Something that I wasn't able to share with my children. I rekindled my teenage interest in photography and went back to college to learn digital photography. Since then I have never looked back and my passion for making photos has grown and grown. My personal interest in sport led me to making portraits for junior sporting stars something I learnt from not having images of me growing up and something to be valued in future years. I had great success with sports photography and I had parents enquiring about family shots and portraits and then couples asking for me to photograph their wedding. Fast forward a few years and many weddings later I am now a professional wedding photographer. My passion for making real and emotive images comes from within and from my personal life experiences. My style of photography captures moments that will be cherished forever and become priceless. With all that in mind I want you to know that there is nothing more important to me than to take your pictures, tell your story and document your special day.
