I picked up a film camera in my Fine Art degree in 2006 and went in the dark room with one roll of film to develop. After that experience I knew photography was going to be a big part of my life. I've been shooting a mixture of film and digital since then. I officially started shooting weddings in 2015. I've been doing photography for 12 years now.
I absolutely adore film, especially instant film. See my POLAROIDS here.
I live in Littleborough near Hollingworth Lake in a Victorian end terrace house full of plants with my fiancé Luke and my ginger rescue cat, Clementine.
Every time I travel to a new place I take a roll of film to experiment with. I took some lomo purple film to Slovenia last year and it worked out really well.
My favourite hobbies apart from photography are running (I completed c25k back in June and i’m on my way to completing 10k in October) walking and travelling to new places. Going to Manchester WI and there events.
I love Peaky Blinders, Made in Chelsea, Escape to the Chateau and The Forensic Files. If I had to pick a favourite film it would be Limitless.
On weekends off I spend time going to visit family, so we pop down the road and have a brew with Luke's nan, mum, dad and sister with his two nieces. We make dens and eat home made cakes. If we aren’t doing that we are visiting new places, we recently stayed near Port Merion on the coast of Wales in a cabin and it was brilliant.
We sometimes pop to Manchester on the train as its not far and go for coffee at Man Co Co and have tea at the best Indian Street food place, Tiffin Rooms. We also love to go to Art galleries/museums to see the latest exhibitions and whilst I'm doing all these things I'm usually taking photos of it all and I take a good few polaroid's!
What makes me awesome as a photographer is you wont see ,me but I'm getting in the mix and capturing all the moments. I see beautiful things and opportunity everywhere. I can make the most beautiful creative and emotional photos without you even noticing.
You are looking for a photographer who can capture moments who doesn't make you feel uncomfortable or make you do any posing. A photographer who has the same style as you and loves what you love. Most of all you want relaxed photographs of everyone being in the moment. That's me!
I would say my work has a vintage touch, I do strive for timeless, meaning my images can never age. I hope you like my work and we have a few things in common. Get in contact or drop me an email and we can have a chat.
