*please check out my new site The Brides Mirror
I’ve been a professional photographer for around 13 years now and since moving to Chicago in 2005 most of my assignments have been weddings. please press the ’play’ button below
I started out doing production photography aboard passenger cruise ships and then went on to do TV set & theater work on land before moving back to the UK where I worked for 5 years at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company in Stratford-upon-Avon.
While I was there I photographed many wonderful productions starring some of the finest actors from Britain & the US. I also worked as a principal photographer on the ’Royal Rota’ assigned to Prince Charles.
Since moving to Chicago I have continued to do theatrical production work as well as working for the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.
This theatrical work was invaluable training for wedding photography. I learned the importance of anticipating ‘the moment’ and recognizing the best opportunities for capturing images that would represent the emotional core of the relationship. I also learned the value of understanding the impact good lighting has in a picture, how it can contribute to, or destroy the ‘Drama’ as it is recorded.
Most importantly theater and wedding photography give me the opportunity to capture people looking wonderful, while giving unforgettable performances.
