Hello! I’m James and this is the bit where you find out a bit more about me so you get a nice intro to who I am and if you feel I’m the right photographer for you! After all I’d love to spend one of the biggest days of your life with you so it’s only right we get to know each other as best we can beforehand.
I’m a Staffordshire wedding photographer (yes that’s me in the photo above doing the self-portrait thing most photographers seem to do!) and I live in Eccleshall a small town in Staffordshire with my wife Hayley, we got married on a gorgeous Autumn day in October 2016 and it was the best day ever! My background is firmly centred around creativity, I’m also a graphic designer alongside being a photographer and graduated in 2001 with a BA in Graphic Communication. Even at College whilst studying creative design, I have fond memories of learning how to use film in cameras and spending hours in a dark room.
Photography has always been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember, in fact my earliest memories include being handed a small plastic film camera on a holiday in Cornwall and taking pictures of my family, something at the time I thought was the coolest thing ever! I took pictures of my family, sometimes whilst they weren’t looking. I’m guessing this held me in good stead, as its the thing I pride myself on most, taking natural, candid, ‘moment’ photographs.
