That's me. This is where I'm supposed to say something meaningful and profound about myself and all of the amazing things I do here at 1OAK Photographic.
The truth is, though, it's all very simple.
I don’t photograph subjects. I photograph the way they make me feel. I approach photography with an open attitude that allows me to view our surroundings with fresh eyes and childlike enthusiasm, to capture the beauty all around us. I catch light in a box and use it to tell a one of a kind story. My story. Your story. Unique stories looking for a voice. Simple.
When I first began to capture candid honest moments in the beginning, it was with one camera, one lens, and the hope that I could somehow turn my life-long love of photography into a new career. After all, someone who shoots and hopes is merely taking a picture. Someone who deliberately mixes art, science and passion is making a picture. I chose then and there to become a maker, not a taker. 1 Of A Kind Photographic was then realised, I haven’t looked back and every day is now an exciting new untold challenge I’m keen to embrace!
I always pay keen attention to detail and believe that in every single image there is a unique story to be told. Fast forward to today, there are a few more cameras and a few more lenses and I specialise in weddings and special events, as well as portraits, fine art, and travel. I offer a friendly, personal service in which I believe that great creativity often develops as a result of team effort. I value working closely with clients, so we can create outstanding visuals together. My experience and desire to creatively tell stories is what motivates me.
Based in Northamptonshire, yet somewhat of a nomadic soul, I’m a real sucker for assignments where I have the opportunity to travel. Recent location projects have included photographing Formula1 cars in Barcelona, Monaco and Belgium, skyscrapers in Dubai, a road trip through the United States, snow sculptures at the Ice Hotel in Sweden, a wedding celebration in the South of France, sky diving over the Florida Keys, husky sledding on Mont Blanc, family portraiture on the beach and a music festival in Dorset, to name just a few!
My style consists of colourful and energetic imagery that’s one of a kind, tailored personally to you. I assume perfection is possible and I want to extract it from every picture. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very well indeed.
My pursuit of new experiences push me to continually evolve my vision and reminds me of the importance of carrying my camera with humour, compassion and curiosity.
With thanks to some wonderful clients, interesting subjects, and a lot of encouragement along the way, my life-long love of photography is stronger than ever, and shows in every image.
