Lovely to Meet You

Let's Get Acquainted!

It’s Not All About the Photography (Getting to Know You)…

Father with Son on his Shoulders

Hello, my name’s Guy – thanks for dropping by!

That’s me on my holiday two years ago with my lovely baby boy, George (he’s grown now!)… It kind of sums up perfectly who I am and I think that’s what photography should do. That photo could help us to get to know each other which is important as I could be playing a part in the most special day of your life!

Family is important to me so whatever you’re wanting me to photograph (wedding day, children, engagement, cat, dog, parrot!) I can fully empathise and will try to see things through your eyes. I realise that everyone is different and most people won’t have hired a professional photographer before. I’m here to guide you through the process… from the planning to that wonderful moment when you see your images for the first time! I will always be on hand to answer your questions and try to help with any issues that may arise. It’s important for us to gain trust – this forms the basis of my work ethic.

Just as I’d like you to get to know me, I’d like to get to know you too. I’ve scattered bits and pieces throughout my site so have a good look around and hopefully you’ll want to click on my contact page to get in touch and tell me about you and what you need.
Away from the fun and excitement of the wedding day or other photographic engagement, being a photographer can be a solitary profession. To counter this I do chaperoning and extra work on films and TV. It helps keep me fresh and gets me out to all-sorts of new and exciting places. I especially value the chaperoning work as working with children helps keep me in touch with my sense of fun.
Last summer I chaperoned 8 adults with disabilities for Channel 4 documentary ‘Kitchen Impossible’ with Michel Roux.  I took my camera along on one of the episodes and as a result, the producers asked me to shoot the behind the scenes photography for the rest of the series. Below is one of my photos used in Channel 4’s social media advertising.  Click here to read my story behind shooting the series…

In 2012 it took me to South-east Asia for a documentary for CBBC where I had the good fortune to have been asked to do some publicity shots. I took the below photograph whilst there and I think it perfectly illustrates the kind of decisive moment that I constantly strive for with my documentary style – Here, the presenter Stacey Dooley and the children are trying some Thai street food (crickets) for the documentary:
