WHERE IT CAME FROM


So you wanted to find out a little more about me. It’s hard to start really as my creative background is varied to how I actually found the path to becoming a wedding photographer and setting up embee Photography. I suppose my initial interest into photography was from being little, my Dad used to have his own dark room which I was very intrigued by.
Too young to understand cameras and Photography back then but I often remember my dad hard at work in his dark room with the dim red safe light, I could be there for an age watching him develop and join him in multiple trips back and forth to Wicks to restock on chemicals and paper. To my Dad his passion for a great shot was only for himself, but back then I got a glimpse of what a real enthusiast was committed too in order to get perfect work.

I explored my own creativity through an early age in drawing, for a long time drawing was probably my best hobby. Naturally progressing with this talent and getting myself through school and college where I studied art & design, I then went on to university to study Animation. It was from this point that I learnt more about digital media and this was the kindling in my life for me to progress to a multimedia designer and photographer.

WHAT ELSE I GET UP TO


My time on wedding photography is split by my passion of graphic design. I regularly freelance to other companies where I use my skills to create websites, logos, film, product photography and beer labels. The work I create for the Wily Fox Brewery in Wigan is some I’m most keen on. I get to flex my creative drawing skills and come up with some ace idead for design to be placed on pump clips and bottles.
