So Who Am I?
I don't want to bore you guys with a hundred and one facts about me and my background - so, to keep it short and sweet, I'm now in my 13th year shooting weddings which makes it about 500 weddings in total...only seems like yesterday since I started! So I guess I must be classed as fairly experienced at what I do now...I hope so, at least, LOL.
Originally from London, I've been in Scotland now for over 20 years and live in Larbert, just outside Falkirk, with my wife Claire and two boys, Matthew & Christopher, who always keep things lively and interesting shall we say!
In my previous life, I ploughed my trade in the not so glamorous world of banking for more years than I care to mention - it didn't teach me a lot about photography, but it did teach me an awful lot about customer service...good customer service that is, oh...and spreadsheets LOL.
So, I'm a very easy going, laid back type of guy (most people would say) and that very much suits my style of shooting on the day. If you want someone to boss you around and direct you all day then I'm probably not the man for you. No. if you don't notice me much on the day, well, that's a good thing in my book.
And, for anyone that is interested in all the facts and the like (not that any of this makes me a better photographer :-)), I'm a huge supporter of the mighty Spurs...not good for your health! I'm into music in a big way...no plastic "chart" pop though! I also dabble occasionally on the old guitar (although it sits gathering dust most of the time) and I'm currently learning to speak Greek...for no real reason at all...although it does annoy the wife and kids :-)!
I would also very much like to shoot your wedding day!
"There was absolutely no doubt in my mind who I was booking for our wedding photography. Mike was the guy. As soon as I came across his work on facebook I booked him up. He was fantastic to deal with on the run up, super organised on the day and not to mention just a lovely all round guy. He was patient on the day, darting around our venue capturing precious moments without most of us noticing and thankfully didn't have us holding any awkward lovey dovey poses! Our photos are exactly everything we hoped they would be. Memories that will last a life time."
