Behind the Lens
I currently live and work in the Isle of Man with my wife and child. We are owned by a large number of dogs, horses and ponies, rare breed sheep and a lot of chickens. I love the beautiful countryside, beaches and sunsets the Island has to offer, and they provide the most amazing backdrops and locations for my photography. The Isle of Man is truly a photographers paradise.
It was living here amidst all this beauty that first inspired me to take up photography, and in 2015 I started snapping the dogs on my phone camera and have progressed a little to a grown up camera now.
So far I am pretty much self taught, and am enjoying my photography journey, constantly striving to improve and get the best shots I can. It is obviously starting to pay off, as one or two of my images have won or done very well in peer judged competitions and I am immensely proud of the achievement.
As part of my journey I have recently joined the Societies of Photographers and am working towards obtaining my Licentiateship, which I hope to achieve soon.
Whilst enjoying outdoor photoshoots with children, my passion is undoubtedly animal, and specifically dog and pet photography. There is nothing more challenging than capturing the essence of your pet, and the reason they are known as Man's Best Friend, when they are having fun in the great outdoors.
I also take outdoor portrait shots if that is your preference, but have found most clients seem to prefer a mix of portrait and action shots, but please give me a call and I'll be happy to discuss your ideas with you and come up with exactly what you are looking for.
