The photos of me on this page - shooting for Precious Wedding Shots and my wedding day!

My photography services are based at a location of your choice, with my creative style I bring out the unique and amazing personalities of each individual. I love capturing this in my photographs, producing bespoke images for you to treasure forever.

Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Ken Buchanan MBE.

My name is Neil and I am a professional portrait photographer who travels across all of the UK capturing people at their wedding, favourite location or in the comfort of their own home.  

Back in the day before digital when I started my photography journey, I had an Olympus OM-1, an amazing camera which helped me fall in love with Photography.

Today I use Sony cameras, Rotolight and Godox lights plus a huge range of other equipment to capture those special moments and I trained initially with David Miller Photography who elevated me to a professional level and helped me realise my passion is for photographing people both in a studio and in the great outdoors.

Since then I have attended many courses with a lot of different trainers from around the world including the amazing Jason Lanier; who taught me the art of photography. You will often find me posting photos from the courses I still attend - keeping me up to date with the latest kit as well as always learning new techniques.
