UK Leica Wedding Photographer. Located in Coventry, I photograph weddings across UK and traveling to clients overseas. Documentary style wedding photographer offering both digital photography and traditional film wedding photography.
As a Leica M9 wedding photographer I like to work quietly as an observer in the background. I shoot by available light where possible, adding flash for subtle creative lighting.
Fashion and Beauty Portrait Photographer. Studio based model photographer in Coventry specialising in black and white female portraiture. I use both available light and flash photography in my images. I help girls build their model portfolio and collaborate with experienced published models both in the UK and across Europe.
Photography Workshops. I provide 1-2-1 photography tuition and lighting workshops from my Coventry studio. I will help you to understand light and your camera and bring them together to enhance your photography.
How I Started:
Hi, I setup my blog page in March 2013 as my Flickr followers keep asking me to share some of my thoughts. To give you a brief background, I’m 35 and live in the UK. My photography began in 2008 after getting a Lumix TZ5 for Christmas. Almost 5 years later I now have many cameras and offer Photography Tuition to those who often get paid for their work. Besides teaching, I shoot as a Wedding Photographer and Model Photographer. I am 100 % self taught so thought a blog would be a great way to share some of the things I have learnt so far. At the end of 2012 I started to develop a passion for Film Photography and in the summer of 2013 I bought my first Leica camera. I am now officially a Leica nut and use the Leica M9 for both my wedding photography and model photography portraits.
