Photographer, Artist, Husband to an amazing wife and father of two.
With a background in fine art and illustration I am much more than a man with a camera and very proud winner of the 2015 AND 2016 Members' Choice "Overall Image Of The Year".
I am a wedding and portrait artist and photographer but I specialise in technically complex composites, such as the "End Of year One" 1920's prohibition image that won the Guild's 2015 Members' Choice "Overall Image Of the Year". I pride myself on my friendly and professional service. You will not regret booking me.
"We chose Simon and Abi Newbury to take our Wedding photographs because with their artistic background and positive, professional nature - we knew we would be in good hands and get fabulous photographs. The final photos turned out so great that in fact, they even exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the results!
We wanted to achieve mainly candid shots throughout the day, and Simon and Abi really listened and produced exactly what we wanted. They were absolutely brilliant. Their fun and positive attitude made the difficult photographs (e.g. trying to get the whole wedding party together) enjoyable. They also did something we really didn't expect - in the morning they helped out whilst I was getting ready and even entertained the kids, all the while capturing the most beautiful pictures. Several of them are just outstanding and we will treasure them forever!
Unfortunately it rained on our Wedding day and we were worried that we wouldn't get any nice outdoor shots - but Simon and Abi proved us wrong! They worked wonders with the lighting, positioning, and editing - to make even our very grey day look atmospheric, romantic and bright. They also managed to capture peoples expressions in the most flattering way, and the clarity of the photos is no less than spectacular.
Thank you Simon and Abi for capturing such meaningful images for us and our family, and for going the extra mile to make our day and photographs truly emotional and special. My husband and I are so thrilled with the finished results, and we will be recommending you to all our friends and family."

"Simon has an incredible skill apart from his obvious finesse behind the lens - he can relax a person posing for a portrait like no one I know. It's quite a feat to get people who hate getting their photo taken - like I do - to look as natural and happy as can be. He has an incredible eye and I would happily recommend him to anyone."
"How amazing are the photograph's. I cannot express how pleased I am with them. Thank you a million times over, especially from Jessica!
