Who am I?
I live in March in Cambridgeshire, in the heart of what is called The Fens. It's a very flat part of the country (some of it in fact below sea level) but not without its own unique charm. Though I envy those who are able to fly to distant locations to capture exotic sights and sounds I find I am never at a loss for subjects to photograph locally. Every photo tells as much about the photographer as the picture does of its subject.
How did I get here?
I graduated with a BA (hons) in Information and Media (specialising in Photography and Video) from University of Brighton in 2000. I'd always been keen to document the world around me in words and pictures and in 2009 I founded Perfect Yellow Ltd and became a full-time professional photographer. Since then I've provided tens of thousands of images to satisfied customers and had my work published in national and local print, many websites (including a few times on the BBC both local and national sites), magzines large and small including Disorder, Art & Soul, Cult Media Magazine and most of the local newspapers in the Cambridgeshire area.
My methods and equipment
I like detail; I like large, expansive, expressive images; I like to capture the entirety of a moment or place.
Equipment and skills I offer:
- Nikon equipment to take stills at up to 36 megapixels and shoot video at 1080p 30fps in broadcast quality
- Range of studio and location lights
- Latest software to digitally retouch, enhance or style images, along with years of experience at getting it right
- The services of: an amazing assistant, hair and make-up stylist or second photographer provided by Perfect Yellow Creative Photography
I offer a professional but very friendly, approachable nature, an experienced ear to listen to your needs and understand your vision. I offer as much or as little guidance as you need. I am not pushy, I can blend into the background or take control as required.
