Hi, I’m James – a Swindon based photographer. I offer a wide range of photography services, including portrait, family, pet, engagement, wedding, corporate, headshot, event and theatre.
My love for photography is closely linked to my love of telling stories. After all, every photograph tells a story and it’s my job to capture and preserve that story.
I work either in the studio or out on location depending on the type of shoot and your preferences as to where the session takes place. Each shoot is customised for you and what you want.
I work tirelessly to make sure I get everything just right so that you not only enjoy the session and have fun taking part, but you also have a great set of photographs to remember the day.
I usually work within a 15 mile radius of Swindon, but am willing to travel further if needed. For weddings, I’ll travel up to 40 miles.
I hold a full clean UK driving license, am a car owner and hold an enhanced DBS certificate (this is the updated version of a CRB check).
I hold equipment insurance, public liability insurance and all of my electrical equipment is PAT tested.
Working with me
I understand that choosing a photographer can be tricky – there is so much choice out there, so what makes me the perfect photographer for you?
Well, if my competitive prices and sample images aren’t enough to make up your mind, read the following to get to know me a bit better. If you have any further questions about working with me, send me an email and I’ll tell you everything you want to know!
What do you need to know before we work together?
When you book a photography session with me, I’ll send you a list of questions to find out more about the shoot.
Typically, these ask about what you are looking for in the shoot, when you would like it to take place, who will be taking part in the shoot and what you will be using the photographs for.
I work hard to tailor each photography session to the individuals being captured on camera. It’s so important that you feel comfortable and enjoy yourself on the day. Happy faces = happy photos!
Why should I hire you for my photography session?
If you want someone who is as enthusiastic about your project as you are, then (as Sheriff Woody might say) you’ve got a friend in me!
I’ll be there every step of the way to let you know what’s happening, what stage of the planning or editing process we’re at and when you can expect final delivery of the photographs.
Do you enjoy taking photographs?
There is a popular saying that states: “choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. This is very true for me. I live, breathe and dream about photography; it’s my passion and I bring that to every project that I work on.
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
A great photograph is one that tells a story. It’s the look between two people. The life a person has led. The unbreakable bonds between family members. Their love. Their joy.
Being able to capture those precious moments on camera is a privilege. To put it simply, it’s why I love what I do!
