Above you’ll see the rarest of things…a photograph of me! So if you’re one of those people who runs a mile when someone tries to take your photo, I’m right there with you! This is one of the reasons why I’ve created an approach to photographing weddings which takes the pressure off and lets you enjoy sharing the moments with your nearest and dearest.

When I’m not taking photos, you’re likely to find me working my way through the ever-growing pile of books by my bedside, catching a movie at the cinema, trying to find where the chocolate stash is, or re-watching my beloved Time Team! 

Having played in bands since a teenager, I love playing and listening to music still. (Though the layer of dust on my guitars suggest it’s been a while since I played anything!) Also partial to getting out and about and exploring the great outdoors, which I get to do lots around Derbyshire, where I live with my wife, Beck, our amazing little daughter, and our cat, Cosmo.

Here’s Cosmo, who’s much bigger now, but he was much cuter when he looked like this!

Finally, here’s a quick-fire list of other bits and bobs I enjoy…

My amazing family • Doing the big shop • Chocolate • Exploring new places • Driving • The feeling of starting a new book • Doing the laundry • Time Team • Summer • Chocolate • Settling down for a carpet picnic and movie marathon on a rainy day • Chocolate • The build-up to Christmas • History • The intros to Columbia & Universal studios movies • Making up impromptu songs about our daughter and our cat • Chocolate.

Big thanks to Ash Davenport for the main photo.
