Thank you for taking the time to view my website. I hope you enjoyed looking through my portfolio and gallery.
I am a fully qualified freelance photographer based in Chelmsford, Essex offering a wide range of affordable and professional photography services including weddings, engagements, personal and family life style images etc. My portfolio extends to commercial work such as professional portraits, products and business promotions.
Having worked in the IT profession since leaving school, I started out many years ago taking product photography for technical articles, another great interest area of mine. However, my images never quite lived up to my own expectations. Like most photographers starting out, I realised that I needed help in getting the best out of my camera using the wealth of settings and enhancements the modern DSLR camera provide.
Realising the potential to expand my photography skills, I embarked on several levels of the City & Guilds photography courses, which I achieved distinction grading throughout. This further fuelled my passion for this art form further. Wishing to extend my accreditations, I went on to achieve a Licentiate distinction (LRPS) award with the Royal Photographic Society. Later this year, I aim to raise the bar further by submitting for the Associate distinction (ARPS) award.
As exciting and challenging the training was, nothing beats getting out there with my camera and experiencing photography in the real world. I embarked taking on new projects and challenges to help me grow and advance as a photographer. Naturally, my journey progressed into providing professional photography services to the public
I take great pride and satisfaction in all my work, both personal and professional. I enjoy sharing my work and helping others reach their own goals just as much as extending my own experience.
From a professional perspective, I operate under two very clear principles; firstly, understanding and getting to know my client is very important to me. I understand that choosing the right person to take your photographs is a personal and an important decision to make so I appreciate that people need to feel comfortable and ease with their photographer. I am friendly, approachable, polite and courteous at all times but always operate in a professionally manner.
Secondly, I strongly believe in photography your way, not mine. I engage with my clients before, during and after their booking to get the best from your experience.
These principles create the culture and ethos I bring to my photography ensuring you get both value for money and more importantly, the photographs you really want. If this is something that interests you then I love to hear from you.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your photography needs. There are no obligations or any hard sell, just simple honest information to make your decision easier.
