He specialises in storytelling and photographing people. An experienced and relaxed reportage style wedding photographer.
I photographed my first wedding back in 2004 and since then my own documentary photo-essays have been published in international magazines and media including the BBC, CNN, National Geographic Magazine, Newsweek Japan, Greenpeace Magazine, The Guardian Weekend Magazine and The Sunday Times Magazine Spectrum Supplement (U.K). I've completed over 800 professional photographic assignments for various clients including the United Nations Association, The Telegraph Magazine, Audi, and GQ Italy. I came back to wedding photography when all my friends who were photographers were getting married and I was the one they asked to cover their wedding. Photographers know LOADS of other photographers so I took this as a sign that I should start shooting weddings again. If photographers choose me to photograph their weddings... I'm a very compassionate and emotive photographer, you can see this in the genuine moments I capture. Having worked as a portrait photographer for The Telegraph, The Guardian Weekend Magazine and GQ Italy I can also make posed portraiture and nice group set ups. I am well adept with lighting and many a rainy winter wedding group shot has been saved by me producing a portable lighting kit out of the boot of my car.
I'm a personable and charming photographer who will genuinely love to be at your wedding as a photographer. I am engaged now myself and all the weddings leading up to mine are proving to be particularly special to me.
I shoot destination weddings worldwide
