This is the most difficult to write – a bit about me………………….?
Well I’m in my 30′s (not being too exact with numbers for reasons of vanity) I’m currently single, but an incurable romantic! I absolutely love shooting weddings. Sometimes I can get so wrapped up in events I have been known to cry (only if everyone else is!!!)
I live near Whalley in a little postage stamp sized house with my two pooches, Tache and Archie and an elderly cat called Monty.
I have a wonderful family who live quite close by, who dog sit for me when I work, as well as two wonderful neighbours who have the pooches on long wedding days.
As well as weddings, I shoot freelance for various magazines and local businesses from eateries, to shoe shops, from florists to car showrooms and on and on……..!
My background is design and marketing with a varied list of jobs from designing football kits to designing websites and graphics. I stumbled into photography by accident and haven’t looked back. I’m more creative now with my camera than I ever was as a designer. Now I’m self employed, life is great, busy but great.
I regularly take “inspirational” training courses with piers in the photography industry, from Mark Cleghorn, Damien Lovegrove, Chris Hanley, Brett Harkness, Aspire Photographic training and Jessica Claire. Learning is where I get my inspiration from and I’m always evolving my photographic style to keep it fresh.
I have a passion for photographing flowers, one day (someday…!) I’ll get enough images for a book.
I have now extended my home to incorporate a meeting area/conservatory. This is where I have my meetings with potential brides and grooms, where we have a coffee, relax, look at the books, and talk!
