Capturing memories, not images

Memories are important

I'm a photographer of many talents currently based in Southampton, UK. I studied photography at Sixth Form and I am now at University studying Web Design and Development. In my free-time I like to photograph nature, landscapes, and vehicles, whilst professionally I enjoy taking photos of events and doing portraits.

Photography is an ever-expanding field of interest for people across the world. It’s a truly universal language, creating friendships no-one thought possible. Photography continues to grasp my interest no matter where my life takes me.

Bournemouth Christmas Market

The Truprint Group

I started doing a bit of Web Design for The Truprint Group and then started to take photos of their monthly quiz night too. The quiz was held at Neighbourhood. I’ve taken photos for the event for 3 months running and it’s been good to add yet another event to my portfolio. The bar is …

Coco Bar & Lounge Comedy Night

I saw a post on Facebook that said photographer wanted and, having changed my attitude since going to university, I gave them a message. Next thing I know I’m photographing the Coco Bar & Lounge Comedy Night. Shooting this event made me want a new lens even more as I could have done with a …

Zuby at The Joiners, Southampton
