I am a photographer and educator living in Cambridge, England. I have been a photographer for over 10 years, having been drawn into the art by my love of portraits and the challenge of capturing a person in a single image. It is this challenge that still inspires me to this day. My work centres on the belief that photographs have a powerful ability to capture a moment in time and retell our most valuable and significant stories. As such, I take a very personal approach to my work. I love to listen to people’s stories and come to understand their journeys.
I work as a teacher of film and photography at a local college in Cambridge and place a huge value on education and its power to affect change in the lives of others. Alongside this, I volunteer as a trustee at This Way Up, a small charity working to support young people dealing with grief and loss.
I am a huge fan of photography (obviously), film, cinematography, theology, philosophy, design and minimalism.
Where are you based and do you travel? I’m based in Cambridge, England, but travel often. I’ve shot weddings and portraits all over the country.
What is your shooting style? With both weddings and portraits, I want to create the most natural environment possible. I will give you cues and direction at points and photograph what happens naturally as you respond and react to me, to each other and to your environment. I try to make every shoot fun and relaxing so that you are at ease and spend much of the time smiling & laughing.
Do you journal all your shoots? I don’t blog every single shoot because I simply don’t have enough time to do that! I shoot a lot more than I journal.
Do you use a second shooter? I am really lucky to work with some amazing people who are dedicated to the craft and passionate about what they do. One of the second shooters I work with will be present at wedding ceremonies and specific shoots subject to their availability.
Do you use back ups? I always bring backup gear and your photos are backed up and stored immediately after the wedding/shoot.
When will we receive the images? For weddings, images will be delivered within 6 weeks. For portrait sessions, images will be delivered within 4 weeks. Faster turnarounds are possible for some portrait sessions on request. Images are delivered via a secure online album.
What are your rates? Weddings start at £950. Portraits and events are charged at £75 an hour.
