Award winning professional portrait and wedding photographer based in Cheltenham Gloucestershire. South West Photographer Of The Year 2015.
I have been a professional photographer all my working life, so a good 20 odd years now, firstly managing studios and photographing children, and then set up my own business in 1999. Since that time, I have been the official photographer at over 700 weddings, and have taken I have no idea how many portraits, but a lot!
In 2012 I qualified with The British Institute of Professional Photography at the level Associateship (ABIPP), meaning I work with ‘A high standard of craftsmanship and creative ability”, and in 2015 they awarded me as The South West Photographer of the Year.
I have set up 3 separate sections to this website – weddings, commercial portraits, and family and children portraits but my work does tend to overlap in these the fields, and as you will see from some of the comments below, so do my clients.
On my ‘about’ page you can read more about me, my background and my style, but in general, I have one fundamental goal every time I pick up a camera ..and that is to deliver.
I believe that listening to my subject or client, be it verbally or visually, to really understand what outcome they want from me, is crucial.
I hope you find this useful and again would love to know why you clicked on my site so please feel free to drop me a line.
“Inclusive… you involve your subjects in the composition, listening to their thoughts and aspirations… and then… you deliver not only what they ask… but much much more “ – Phillip Skill, father of the groom!
“I’ve never met a photographer who seems to be able to get so many kids to smile! Henry’s nursery pictures by another photographer aren’t a patch on the ones you do and the ones that you did for the family xx” – Karin Stanley, who’s family portraits I took in 2015, and ex-employee of Chestnuts Day Nursery where I have been photographing the children for 13 years now.
