"A photograph can be an instant in time captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you"
"My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me."
"When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!"

The Charity I Support
Reuben’s Retreat is a charity that was born in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically passed away aged 23 months. Their goal is to provide a retreat in the North West of England countryside that will relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the bereavement of a child or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening illness.
The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.
"A picture paints a thousand words" is a famous saying and was coined by Frederick R. Barnard in 1921 while commenting about an article on the effectiveness of graphics. How true this is today, we may not print as many photographers as we did in the past but with social media growing we now use them daily.
Each photograph should tell a story that means something personal to the viewer. Whether it is a particular celebration or simply to capture a moment in time, it's my aim to provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.
I am an amateur photographer looking to build a portfolio and fund my habit of buying photography equipment. Whilst not professional, I hope from my sample photographs, you can see I am quite an accomplished photographer, who believes in working with you to achieve the look and feel you are aiming to achieve.
