Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a Professional Photographer: Specialising in natural, informal portraiture and natural reportage weddings. I also enjoy creating B/W Fine Art works too and I really enjoy working with my older Bronica film equipment.

I'll basically have a crack at shooting anything, the subject matter is inconsequential to me, it's the learning to photograph it well that is the challenge and the enjoyment.

If asked however, I must say that my favourite type of photography is portraiture, classical, character style portrait work, where capturing atmosphere, lighting, mood and the character of the sitter are paramount. I still believe in some old fashioned principles of accurately exposed, in focus, thoughtful photography. Even in this 'speed' orientated digital era.

I have a learning/teaching philosophy: Why shoot ten shots badly, when you can study and learn to shoot one shot well? Apart from being a professional photographer I also run photography workshops for individuals and groups around the North East in the UK
