My love for black and white pictures remains the same as it did 30 years ago.
Because of this I offer a discount on all black and white photo collections. I regularly attend conferences and training programmes on photography held internationally. This enables me to improve my skills and change according to the trends, to offer an excellent service for you. No matter whether you are looking for a wedding, portrait, fashion, commercial, new born or black and white photographs , I will meet all your requirements at a reasonable rate.
Throughout the years I have been awarded plus nominated for my photographic skills. I was nominated Photographer of the Year’ awards in 2012 and 2013, being selected in the top 100 out of 30,000 entry’s which indicates the standard of images you will receive by choosing me.
As you can probably guess, observation has become a strong point in my life over the years, this helps to offer you a fabulous collection of artistic and breath-taking images. I offer creative photography throughout Essex, London and Home Counties. I am also willing to travel within and beyond UK to capture the special moments and memories for clients looking for quality. I approach every task with proper knowledge and do my very best to satisfy your expectations. I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, I don’t take a photograph, I make it Happen, for me photography is not simply clicking the button it is looking at the situation and the feeling of an event that unfolds. I love a good black and white picture and want to stretch myself with you to make your dream come true.
Black and white images are special. When you strip away the colour from something, you can get right to its soul. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a portrait, a landscape, a street scene or anything else, when it’s reduced to textures, tones and lines, you see it in a different way. Do you ever look at something so simple and say, that is stunning. Black and white images take away the distraction and you just see the light falling on your subject and depending on how you use the light and the moment, it quiets the mind and brings you back to the basics of light and dark, highlight and shadow.
It’s a sad truth that in the age of easy Instagram filters some people feel that converting an image to black and white is enough to make it “arty” and “cool”. The best black and white images are carefully crafted; they aren’t just de-saturated versions of normal colour images. Creating a powerful black and white image is a skill unto itself. Black and white photography is a wonderful area of photography to explore. Rather than dying out with the rise of colour film, it’s an even more vibrant and interesting area of the art form than ever before.
I do not rush to capture images; this could also be said about image editing. All photographs I offer will be sensitively enhanced and produced in line with the highest possible visual standards. This important aspect in the process cannot be rushed, this usually takes at least one or two weeks to complete.
The quality off my work is important to me and I am very proud of the images I create for you and would be honoured to do your black and white photography for you.
I’m fully insured and shoot exclusively using professional grade Canon equipment.
Please take the time to look though all my images in the above, I hope you enjoyed browsing through my collections as much as I have in making them.
