The Way I See The World


Personally, I feel photography is made up of two elements, firstly it is representational in recording the event or the action, but more importantly the image should convey the values and character of an organisation or project. The best images have this dual quality, technically they look good but aesthetically they convey meaning.

Our Services

Event Photography

I cover events for Companies and Organisations both small and large from PR and brand promotion to debates and presentations, from receptions to all day events and from half marathons to carol services.  If it’s an event – I can cover it.  My work has been published in a number of journals and magazines both in print and online.  My approach is professional and I am committed to exceeding Clients’ expectations.


Studio shoots and catwalk shows differ but the purpose of each is to create impact. Models on a runway create fast paced action and photographers have a one-shot chance to capture the vital image. Studio shoots are by nature more collaborative working with designers, stylists, make-up artists as well as models.


Portraits may be created in both studio and working environments, it mostly depends on the objective of the shoot. Corporate headshots depict the organisation as much as how the individual looks. Actors, Presenters and Celebrity headshots differ as they are often made to refresh an image or a particular PR promotion.


Architectural, commercial and retail interiors record change as well as facilitating marketing and promotional opportunities.  In larger organisations photographs may be used to communicate wider aspects of business and keep colleagues up to date.

 “I’ve been working with Michael over the past couple of years and am very impressed by his commitment, talent and professionalism. Running a vey intense programme of events, having a trustful photographer who will capture all the right moments is very important. A great photographer to work with!”

Amy Williams – Mencap

The photos from Saturday are fantastic and totally fit with the brief from our digital team who are really happy with the results. They also capture the happy friendly atmosphere really well too!

 Michael really captures the atmosphere of the events he photographs. He is professional and polite and gets the best out of his subjects even when they are half way through a run! I would definitely recommend him.

Bridget Sawyers – Art and Architecture Consultant

The drinks photos are very atmospheric and rather lovely and audience ones really great. Just received the B&W versions and they are even nicer! Fantastic – just what we wanted. So good to have professional images – we will use these a lot!
