Well, 2017 has been full on, to say the least. I never expected to become a full-time photographer on New Year’s Eve 2016 but I did. The rollercoaster of 2017 was crazy but I’m very excited to see what 2018 holds.

Lake District & Cumbria Wedding Photographer
Funnily enough, it was not my intention to be a wedding photographer at all. Originally from the flat lands of Norfolk, I moved up to Carlisle for university where I studied Photography and successfully completed my degree. All of my photography previously was either, a basis for my fine art paintings, or landscape photographs.
I moved up to Carlisle to discover the Lake District & Cumbria, Wales was only a short distance away and Scotland even closer. Even Ireland wasn’t too far away at all if I wanted to. It was all about the landscape. Through university though, I started photographing events and I started my street photography which then lead into a small job with the BBC as a photojournalist.
It was only when a class mate of mine asked me to photograph his wedding that I even considered being a wedding photographer. It had the fun of an event with the beauty of photojournalism and it required the use of light that my landscape work did. It seemingly ticked all of my boxes. A Lake District & Cumbria Based Wedding Photographer seemingly was born.
Now several years in, I’m used to travelling all over the UK photographing weddings and creating beautifully authentic photography for future generations to enjoy, in a creative and modern way. I honestly love doing what I do and I hope you enjoy my work also.
