Above : Me on 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, check my Youtube channel for a slideshow with pictures from the photoshoot. I also won the Theo Paphitis #SBS on Twitter as well as #KingOf Moments In Time on Twitter too, i'm a supporter of the Butterwick Hospice and a member of both the SWPP (Society Of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) plus The Guild of Photographers.

I am also a Photographer Trainer at The Photo Academy as well as training on a one to one level across the UK.

BEHIND THE LENS...​

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

Back in the day before digital when I started my photography journey, I had a 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 gear to capture those special moments in time and I trained initially with David Miller Photography who took 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; teaching 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 skills.

When not taking photos I enjoy music and walking (although I do always take my camera too !).

I have also been an active member of many organisations; being chair, founder, trainer, manager, committee member, director etc for charities as well as both large and small businesses, paid and unpaid positions.

I am fully DBS checked and hold full Insurance, both certificates i am happy to share with you.

Currently i am helping a couple of owners with their new businesses and setting up another mastermind group too - message me for details or if you would like to be part of this.
