I am a storyteller and a visual artist. I feel very lucky to have the privilege of photographing the beauty, magic, fun and the romance that makes up a couplesâ€™ wedding day. I take great pride in creating a visual story where pictures speak far more than a thousand words could ever. Itâ€™s the best story ever told and that story is yours. When my clients look at their photographs and it brings the memories of their wedding day flooding right back, I know that I have done a great jobâ€¦ For me, the feelings of pride and pleasure I experience when that happens is second to none.
My qualifications: Â Hopefully my images speak for themselves but I think itâ€™s good for my clients to know more about my background. I wasprofessionally trained for 3 years at the renowned photography school, Blackpool & Fylde College in Lancashire. After graduating, I headed south to London to begin work as a photographerâ€™s assistant in the commercial and advertising industry. Following several years working as a civilian photographer attached to the Royal Navy, I opened my own studio on North London. During that time my work was very diverse and included photographing several well-known people such as Sir Richard Branson, the explorer Sir Ranulf Fiennes and HRH the Queen Mother amongst others. I then went to work in North America for several years before returning to the UK.
I am a Member of Â the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP)Â and The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP). I am an Associate of both which is the 2nd highest level of qualification awarded by the industry.
I use state of the art Nikon equipment, the highest quality lenses, portable lighting and the latest post production software in creating my photographs.
To help me in my work, I am delighted and very fortunate to have a terrific team of very talented and skilful photographers working for me.
Sarah Tomlinson has worked alongside me for the past few seasons. She adds a very feminine touch to Silver Cloud Photographyâ€™s style and her work with younger children is fabulous.
Steve Dunning is another consummate professional who almost seems literally to melt into the background. He creates the most amazing photographs almost completely unseen. Steve and I have worked together over many, many years and his very clever and inventive approach contributes enormously to the visual style of Silver Cloud Photography.
Graham Berry is another talented and creative photographer. His complementary style adds a different perspective to the feel of the work that I present to my clients. Graham has worked as part of my team for the past three seasons.
