2016 was a amazing year for me, I shot close to 40 weddings in and around Cornwall and Devon, I also photographed weddings in London, isles of Scillies and the south of France. As well as attending 4 very informative photography courses, winning wedding photographer of the year at the Simply wedding awards and having two of my creative flash images winning international awards. Moreover I found out that I will be becoming a dad to a baby girl due in March and linking back to my passion I am sure you will see more baby photography pictures.
Along the year I have met amazing people and been apart of incredible moving wedding days and when looking back at all the photos it’s so hard to point out a favourite wedding or best picture. I’ve put together a compilation of some of the wedding shots for this blog which was not the easiest of task. At first count I managed to cut my favourites down to 586 photos.
As an artist I am constantly striving to push and better myself and practice new ideas and generally be more creative. In attending the courses this year I have familiarised myself with different styles of documentary wedding photography and have learned an incredible amount form leading highly experienced photographers. I have furthermore changed the way I think at wedding and the equipment I use, which I feel has stopped me shooting in an idle style and thus now feel I’m more part of the action and give my photos a more intense and intimate quality.
I’m looking forward to the year ahead with the diary mostly filled up and creating more dramatic portraits for my couples.
