Let me introduce myself
I’m Mark. I live in a small town in Derbyshire with my wife and two kids. I’m a full-time professional photographer, shooting weddings, events and other documentary projects all over the UK.
I have never been interested in creating photographic ‘art’ with artificial lighting, staging or posing. Instead I get excited about capturing reality. Fleeting moments, frozen, to be enjoyed forever. I shot my first wedding this way over ten years ago, and this has been my approach ever since.
Unlike many wedding photographers, I have no interest in faddy processing techniques and ‘vintage’ effects that will quickly date. Nor will I spend half my day photographing random details or cropping off everyone’s heads. I produce natural and honest storytelling wedding images with true-to-life colour and neutral black and whites that will look as great in 50 years time as they do now.
I photograph around 35 weddings each year and I’ve worked in almost every county in England, and occasionally further afield. I have photographed big weddings and small weddings. Grand weddings at stately homes and simple weddings in parents’ back gardens. Rural weddings and urban weddings. Church ceremonies, civil ceremonies and humanist ceremonies. English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Indian and French weddings.
My work has been recognised repeatedly over the years by the Wedding Photojournalism Association, the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers and more recently by Fearless Photographers. I have also been named as one of the UK’s top ten winter wedding photographers by ‘Professional Photographer’ magazine.
If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen and read, it would be a privilege to photograph your wedding. Please get in touch to check my availability for your date. You can also follow me on Twitter, Like my Facebook page and add me to your circles on Google+.
