I found my passion for photography when my Makeup Artist wife Ruth Hawkins suggested I have a go at photography for a hobby after spending years with the RNLI and being a powerboat instructor. I went and bought myself a camera and started playing. I found a new found passion and started to look into photography with more detail. I read lots of books, watched alot of tutorials, enrolled onto a photography course and took part in specialised wedding training up in Stoke-On-Trent . During this learning process I did a lot of photoshoots in both natural and studio lighting organised and planned by my wife. Most of these shoots can be seen on this site.

With all this learning I decided that I wanted to take it professionally and this is where I am today.  The photography I do is very relaxed and friendly and my wedding photography is a candid style blended with modern inspired imagery as I feel this is the best way for making my clients feel at ease whilst being photographed. I always look to perform my uttermost best to give you pictures that will bring back memories in years to come. I like to consider myself a fun and friendly person to be around and relish on taking peoples pictures to give them something to remember and cherish.

I am married to Ruth Hawkins and have two children as well as a fun, loving German Shepherd dog, I have been living in Ivybridge, Devon for many years now and previously lived on the Isle of Wight.
