Hi, I’m Tom…
Photography is my passion. Having been taught in my early teens by my grandfather, who was a semi-professional photographer, I was hooked early on. He taught me how to use film, and develop negatives in the darkroom, as well as how to get started with a camera. To this day I still shoot film, mostly using it for my personal work. I have my own darkroom and develop film myself, as a nod to the past. There’s something about seeing the film come to life in front of me that I love so much, and hope to continue for many years. I even have a Polaroid camera that I bring with me to weddings. If you want a Polaroid of you on your wedding day, all you have to do is ask!
My personal work has been featured in weekly photographic competitions on Twitter, having been shortlisted, placed, and winning on numerous occasions. I have had one of my images featured on the Telegraph website, and a separate image featured in Black And White Photography Magazine (October 2017).
Whilst I enjoy working with the natural landscape (especially with the beautiful scenery of Norfolk), my main enjoyment comes from working with people. I am always with my camera, and am often taking photos of my family, my wife, Jess, and my son, Austin. I always work with a digital camera when doing portraiture, due to reliability and consistency, however, if you would love me to use film, please feel free to ask.
As well as working as a wedding photographer, I also teach GCSE Photography at a secondary school. I love working with people (yes, even teenagers), and always go above and beyond to put people at ease, making sure that they enjoy their time with me. I am a perfectionist at heart, and love getting the finer details right. I love seeing my clients happy with my work, and work hard to make sure that my best work is always what you receive. I don’t use presets, templates or cut corners with anything I do, so can feel assured that each wedding I do is bespoke to you and your needs.
