Getting to know your photographer can be really useful and help you to relax.
Why is it important to get to know your photographer?
Photography is a very personal thing and I feel it’s only right that if I’m going to help you with your imagery, that we take some time to get to know each other a little. That way, you’ll relax sooner in my company and when the camera comes out, hopefully it won’t be too frightening as you already know the guy behind it.
It might surprise you to know that I’ve never been that keen on having my photo taken either, it used to be that in any taken of me I was either drunk, asleep or both! But to enable me to practice what I preach, I organised a shoot with my friend and fellow photographer SJ Tibor, where we took images for each others websites. That proved to be very useful for not only getting these images but finding out what it feels like to be in front of the camera for a change.
What’s my Why?
I was very lucky nearly 20 years ago when I met Cherie, we’ve been around the world together, literally, and she’s managed to keep me on course through all our travels both physical and emotional. Like everyone, we’ve had good times and bad but I’m so proud to have her as my wife, we got married in 2019 in Las Vegas no less!
Away from the camera, we like to take our dog, Mr Tiggs, for walks and travel as much as we can, we’ve got a VW camper that gets us all over the place and we’re always looking for that next adventure.
Tell us something we don’t know about you…
I used to own quite a few unusual cars, that’s what lead me into photography in the first place. The red car is a Siva Saluki and it was a kit car powered by a 1600cc VW engine, the company only produced 12 bodies in total, the gullwing doors were cool. The yellow one was my last American car before switching to the camper, it’s a 1972 Dodge Dart that was very fast in a straight line, it had a modified 5400cc V8 engine and made me nervous to drive it. The final photo is the one of very few that exist of me during my time as a ring announcer for NWA UK Hammerlock which was a wrestling promotion based in Kent.
