I’m Jim, a passionate photographer who started my photography life with a Praktica MTL 5b, lots of film rolls and a dark room, a great hobby that I enjoyed immensely for many years.
A trip to South Africa drove the need to upgrade to a digital SLR, the first of many DSLR upgrades.
In 2015 my cousin said, hey Jim you have a nice camera and your pictures from South Africa are great can you photograph our Wedding? With some trepidation I agreed, with plenty of planning, lots of research I photographed the day and throughly enjoyed myself.
On my next visit to my cousins house I noticed that my pictures from the wedding were dotted around the house, filling me with pride and a little confidence.
In 2016 my mum suggested I photograph my aunts wedding, a massive challenge as I would be working all day in the USA, flying through the night and with a 130 mile drive to the wedding any delay would have meant disaster. So with less than four hours sleep and the change of time zone I set to documenting her special day. Despite all the challenges I really enjoyed my time behind the lens and both Bride and Groom were thrilled with the results.
I love making people smile, and for me everyday is a happy day. As long as I can get Big Smiles from you before, during and after your special day then I have achieved what I set out to do - Create Smiles!
