It's good to meet you!
Back in the day, one of my earliest recollections of photography was back at school, and winning a photography competition on our school trip to France. My prize..an "Asterix the Gaul" book in the French language...and I was pretty bad at French - c'est la vie! At least I think that's how you say it?
Even back then, I was never content with a bog standard shot with my Kodak Instamatic - different angles and compositions were always high on my list and I guess that's something I've carried forward to this day.
At age 11 I can honestly say that wedding photography wasn't high on my list of dream jobs (really!)...the world of aviation was very much my thing back then and you'd often find me scouring the perimeter fences at airports looking for the next great shot - these days, I'd probably be locked up on issues of national security doing the same thing!
My own wedding back in 2007 was really the spark that ignited my love of wedding photography. I had no idea how wonderfully creative it could all be - who knew! That was an eye opener, and I've never looked back since.
Qualifications were important to me, and I hold a Diploma In Professional Photography and am a member of both the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) where I hold a Licentiateship qualification. I've had work featured in The Daily Telegraph, Fox News (USA), the Scottish Wedding Directory, Tie The Knot Scotland, Brides Magazine and a host of popular wedding blogs.
I'm originally from London, but moved to Scotland in 2002 where I live with my wife and two boys in Larbert, just outside Falkirk.
I would also very much like to take your picture ♥.
