I live on Sark in the Channel Islands: a place with no pollution, no interference from artificial lighting and no made roads. A place that offers a unique way of life. Sark can offer unrivalled quietness, a beautiful blanket of stars at night and stunning nature and coastal areas.
I studied photography and gained a BA Hons at Nottingham Trent University. I used a 35mm Minolta and a Yashica 124G with roll film back then, but am now currently enjoying all the benefits of digital photography.
My work has moved from landscape photography into working more with people; be it weddings or portraits of children, or people at work.
Couples are attracted to the island for its simplicity and for the stunning venues and backdrops for weddings that Sark has to offer. It can be helpful to have a photographer who knows the area and the beauty spots, as well as keeping the costs down for the bride and groom. I blend formal photography to incorporate group shots with informal photos. This is the best way to capture the essence of a special day. If you choose me as your photographer I will work discretely on your day, without hindering your plans.
