I’m easy to get on with, kind to small children and animals and I’m not a big fan of hearing my own voice. I’m a former Military Police Officer, Private Investigator, Nightclub Operator, Pub Landlord and House Husband. I’m old enough to know what I’m doing yet young enough to learn new tricks… 43 if it’s important. I live on the Fylde coast with my wife and Business Manager Sam and a random ferral cat called Shadow that adopted us a few years ago.
All my equipment is Pro Level. I also have spares. Lots of spares. I could probably carry less equipment to be fair. If you are interested I shoot two Canon 5D Mk iii’s, I use L series lenses or their equivalent, and have backups for everything. If Sam asks I could always do with something extra.
While I am shooting I am recording to two memory cards at the same time. Back in the office your images are copied to 3 different hard drives, one goes in the fire-safe, one goes to an off-site storage facility and one comes home with me and lives on my desk. There is another complete copy uploaded to a secure server in Canada, you know, just in case the British Isles sink into the sea.
I complete all the editing myself, I don’t use external companies unless you request an express service.
I’m pretty quick at getting your images out to you. When I’m not shooting a studio session, a wedding or out on a photoshoot I’ll be in the office editing away. Or I’ll be asleep, I like sleep.
I make the pretty pictures while my Business Manager (and wife) Sam keeps us organised and tells me where to be and when. I have a regular team of second shooters and am currently mentoring a couple of new photographers who are learning the ropes.
