I first took an interest in photography at school, it was one of only a few schools that taught photography as an 'O' level. This gave me an excellent grounding and very soon I was totally hooked, doing my own developing, printing and photographing - everything I could.
Over the years my passion developed mainly towards natural history but I soon found myself covering weddings, social events, portraits etc. Well that was a long time ago but even then with my early wedding photography I tried to capture more than just plain old wedding pictures, I wanted to capture more of the wedding atmosphere which is now the norm for every wedding.
I really believe you need passion and flare to take wedding photography to another level and make a truly great timeless album.
