About me..

Nigel is a professional Photographer with over 30 years experience,  from the age

of seventeen he developed a path into what has became a successful photographic career!.

His father was an established watercolour artist, and a great source of encouragement, having had a successful arts career in his own right,

so Nigel soon learnt to think creatively and methodically.

After a stint at art college, he began his first full time role 

shooting mostly archaeological bric-a-brac, from 

Neolithic flints to Roman bones. 

As time passed he began shooting more advertising and commercial images for

various companies, the work was very diverse, Cars, Food, Room Sets & Products

However as time went on he began to feel that the human element was essentially missing from his images

So in 1990 he finally immersed himself headlong into wedding capture, but at the same time styling his work to be genuinely creative and refreshing.

'I like to dance a line between Informality and creativity

Fusing a documentary style with Innovation'

 Wedding work has been featured in a number of media: 

Magazine, Television, Newspaper.

More recently, a number of his wedding images were used by

Nikon cameras for their 100th anniversary company

European celebration video.

He has travelled to some of the most beautiful and exotic wedding locations in a long career.

From, London's Ritz hotel to the Amalfi coast in Italy.

Each location giving him the opportunity to create something different.

Trivia

"A photographer went to a socialite party in New York.

As he entered the front door, the host said 'I love your pictures - they're wonderful, you must have a fantastic camera!

He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: 'That was a wonderful dinner, you must have a terrific stove!"
