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 never ending source of encouragement, having had a successful arts career in his own right,

so Nigel soon learnt to think instinctively both 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 pots.

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

The work was very diverse, ranging from

Cars, to Food, to Room Sets and 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 natural style

with Innovation!

Wedding work has been featured in a number of media: 

Magazines, Television, Newspapers.

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 add something

pictorially different.

 

Wedding images published in:


You and Your Wedding magazine, Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, Kentish Wedding magazine, Hudsons wedding venues book, Daily Mirror and Guardian Newspapers, Your Kent Wedding Magazine and a number of local periodicals.

Outside of photography, Nigel enjoys keeping fit, mostly failing miserably, but with all good intentions!

The Arts, Real Coffee, Wine and single malt Whisky

(In strict moderation of course).

He also is a bit of a foodie at heart, with a preference for strong spicy dishes, Thai, Indian and Nepalese being firm favourites although a good traditional roast always

takes some beating!

Ably supported in his career by his long suffering partner Lauren

and amazing daughter, forever his best critic!

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!"
