I specialize in commercial, branding, event, and wedding photography. My services include capturing professional headshots, formal commercial photographs, corporate events, balls and galas, speaker and political rally events, personal branding sessions, and documenting weddings.

How Are Your Prices Set, and How Many Photos Will I Receive

I am a time-based photographer, not a photo-based photographer, Instead of counting individual images, my focus is on delivering a comprehensive and meaningful photographic experience throughout our agreed-upon time frame.

The emphasis is on quality rather than quantity, ensuring that each moment captured is thoughtfully composed and professionally executed. This approach allows for flexibility and creativity, ensuring you receive a collection of images that authentically tell the story of your event or session.

By offering time-based photography, you can clearly define your marketing budgets without the shock of adding additional funds to purchase more photos.

Can I customize a photography package based on my specific needs?

Absolutely! I understand that every client has unique requirements. I offer customizable packages to tailor my services to your specific needs and budget. Let’s discuss your preferences, and I’ll create a personalized package just for you.

What is your photography style?

My photography style is centered around documentary storytelling, a unique approach that captures moments authentically and tells a compelling narrative. I strive to blend into the background, allowing events to unfold naturally, and seizing genuine emotions and interactions.

Whether it’s a wedding, a corporate event, or a branding session, my goal is to document the essence of the moment rather than stage it. This style ensures that the images produced are not only visually striking but also convey the true atmosphere and emotions of the occasion.

By embracing the art of storytelling, I create a visual chronicle that resonates with the authenticity and depth of the experiences I capture, delivering a collection of photographs that truly tell a story.

How far in advance should I book your services for my event or wedding?

It’s recommended to book as early as possible to ensure availability, especially for weddings and major events. However, I understand that sometimes events come up unexpectedly, so feel free to inquire about last-minute availability.

Can I see samples of your previous work?

Certainly! Ive actually built a dedicated website specifically to show my work, the problem with most photography websites is there limited in storage, I feel its important to show my entire portfolio, This will give you a sense of my style and the range of projects I’ve been involved in.

What equipment do you use?

I get asked all the time, if equipment isn’t the way to get the best photos, its the skill of the photographer, but for those interested, I photograph with Sony cameras, I prefer this because of its low light capabilities, meaning I’m less intrusive and don’t always need flash or external lights.

How long does it take to receive the final edited photos?

The turnaround time varies depending on the scope of the project. However, I strive to deliver high-quality, edited photos within 2 working weeks, editorial work, and PR work will vary based on the project. For all photoshoots I’ll provide you with an estimated timeline during our initial discussions.

Will You Photoshop My Photos?

Embracing a documentary storytelling approach, my photography style prioritizes authenticity and genuine moments. I believe in capturing life as it unfolds, without relying heavily on Photoshop interventions.

I aim to preserve the raw beauty and natural imperfections that make each moment unique. While I do enhance images through careful editing to ensure optimal lighting, colour balance, and composition, I steer away from extensive retouching that alters the true essence of the captured moments.

The result is a collection of photographs that authentically reflect the atmosphere and emotions of the occasion, telling a story that is true to life and full of genuine character.

If you appreciate the beauty of real moments, unaltered by excessive post-processing, you’ll find my documentary storytelling style to be a perfect fit for your photography needs.

What is your travel costs?

Travel costs are charged at £0.45p per mile from PE2 8AN return. As a general rule, and for safety, any photoshoot that requires travel time over 2 hours to reach the site, and lasts longer than 6 hours will require an overnight stay, which is chargeable. Ill provide you with an estimate during our initial discussions.

When confirming your booking I will ask for the following deposits in order to secure your session.
