I have been shooting weddings for 6 years and I cannot imagine doing anything different now. Photography has always been my passion. I first picked up the camera when I was seven. It was my father's old Russian Zenith SLR camera. Since then photography fascinated me and I always wondered how all these great photos have been taken. The light, composition, technique and finally people in pictures. I did not want to just look at photos I wanted to take them.
It all seriously started in 2006 when I got myself first digital SLR camera. I started photographing some great British landscapes and displayed my work in local galleries. I then moved into photographing people and finally documenting their big days. I love honest documentary way of photographing weddings with full respect to wedding photojournalism. No posing, staging, directing or interrupting the wedding flow. Just real moments within the wedding story.
I live in Nottingham with my wife Gosia and our little boy David.
Travelling to photograph weddings across the UK, I provide high quality service in a friendly and relaxed manner.
