You are probably wondering how I ended up going from a career as a Policeman to becoming a Full Time Professional Wedding Photographer? The answer is quite simple, my passion for Photography has been there for as long as I can remember.
I joined the Royal Air Force when I was 19 years old as a Military Policeman. Fortunately for me this also included some camera work, which I received training for by the British Armed Forces. This being the best training in the world that money simply cannot buy.
My camera travelled the world with me.
In fact the only day I have not been allowed to use my camera was the day of my own wedding. It did however make it on my Honeymoon to Kenya.
When my Military career ended, the next chapter in my life was working as a Private Investigator. My Camera was the most useful, trusted and used work tool of my trade. Everywhere I went, so did my camera.
I started my Career as a Professional Wedding Photographer by offering to shoot for free and asking Photographers if I could second shoot for them. Sometimes this would only involve carrying and setting up their equipment. I would watch from afar and learned so much by doing this. I also would watch endless hours of tutorial videos on the Internet and even more hours researching my field.
The most invaluable training however came from attending Neil Redfern and Liam Crawley workshops. Neil is a phenomenal photographer and I cannot recommend these workshops enough, for anyone who is wanting to further their knowledge in camera use. I still attend Neil’s workshops to this day.
