About me

I have been a photographer for over 20 years and I still got as excited photographing weddings as I did at the beginning of my career. In fact I am enjoying my work more than ever and have a very modern approach always trying innovate and try new ideas such as the stop motion wedding video.

My passion started with a Zenith film camera and my own black and white dark room at home in my early teens. Although my first weddings were shot on film I have loved the development of digital and the amazing things that can be done with the latest cameras and computers - although my photography still has a natural look with a minimal amount of work being done to the images.

The best day of my life was my wedding day leading on to my other passion - my little boys! I love my time with my family and our favourite holiday is playing on the beach and in the rock pools near Bamburgh in Northumberland.

I think that is enough of me talking about myself - this is what some of my clients have said about my wedding photography:

Tim is a pleasure to work with as well as a fabulous photographer! From our first enquiry to lead-up to our wedding he was our clear choice! He gave us a great experience during our meetings with him and our pre-wedding photo shoot at Woodhall. On our wedding day, Tim was so friendly, polite and kind to everyone he came across (which was noted by all of our guests). He just let us, our family and friends enjoy our day from the beginning to end. Tim not only captured our precious moments he captured our feelings, emotions and the atmosphere of the day, without being intrusive. He hasnt given us just pictures, he has given us a lifetime of images to enjoy year after year in digital and book bound. We knew exactly what we wanted from our photographer, Tim and his work was so much more. I have and will continue to highly recommend

We would both like to thank you. On the day you were simply wonderful and ensured our wedding was recorded through a wonderful array of photographs, but at the same time you were discreet when needed and sort to lead when required, to ensure we had our family photographs as requested. We felt relaxed, supported and in very safe hands. After our honeymoon we spent a full morning looking through your wonderful pictures. From the informal snaps of our family arriving, to people preparing for the day, to the actual wedding itself and the reception afterwards, not a moment was missed and you conveyed the joy, excitement and feelings of the day. We relived every moment it was wonderful. Your ability to put people at ease, catch those key and very special moments and your professionalism made our day. Thank you so much Tim

Just a note to say a huge thank you for doing such a fantastic job on our wedding photography and creating us a beautiful album. You captured some lovely natural images on the day and the atmosphere was relaxed with you making us feel at ease throughout. Your attention to detail was second to none and the album blew us away. We cant recommend you highly enough!

Tim came and took photographs at my daughter's wedding, He covered the whole day with such detail and enthusiasm. The photographs that he took are so varied..some are quite classic in composition, others are less formal, particularly the ones of the children and he really captures the character of the child. He has a really good eye for the composition of each photograph. The other thing is that he is so nice and unobtrusive whilst he is taking the photographs and I think that is why everyone looks so relaxed in them. The album he has done for us is quite amazing. We can't praise him enough and only wish we had known about him, when another daughter married eight or nine years ago.
