Being one of the full time photographers in Dorset, he considers it a great privilege to be asked to photograph people especially photography for relaxed people. A personal photoshoot or a wedding can be one of the most creative and inspiring events to photograph.

Like photographers near me, he considers it far more than just a job but always loves the challenge each portrait session or wedding brings and will always strive to produce the very best results he can.

Dave’s reputation…

Dave has a reputation of having a very calm personality and has an ability to engage well with people from all walks of life. Dave believes that to get the best results from your photoshoot, you need to develop a great friendship/relationship with your clients way before the actual event. 

A focus on High Quality…

Digital, 35mm Film Wedding Photography or Medium Format Film Wedding Photography.

Dave is one of the few photographers in Dorset that is able to offer Digital, 35mm Film or Medium Format Film wedding photography. A number of images on this page were taken with a Medium Format Film camera.

Dave also believes his best form of advertising is from personal recommendation from people who have found his services highly professional and he will always deliver a high quality product (see reviews above). He achieves this by delivering both on Quality and Quantity which is why Dave includes very high quality albums. Contact us for details.

Having a very calm personality helps tremendously as this helps to keep his clients also in a relaxed state. This in turn, helps to make the photographs have a natural, relaxed and spontaneous look about them without looking like a casual snap picture.
