Location. Location. Location

One of the things I really love about photography is how each job is different.  Whether it is the client, the weather, the light or the location.  I love the freedom I have a photographer to be able to deal with all of these variables.

When is actually comes to the location I wouldn't say I had a favorite as such but I do love getting outside and doing location shoots.  Don't get me wrong, studio work is great.  There are not so many variables to think about so it can make the job simpler but it can be very rewarding just getting outside and using the scenery as a natural backdrop.  This time of the year when the days are getting shorter you can be treated to beautiful low sun which gives the most lovely warmth.

As things have recently changed here at Shoot for the Moon I have decided to do some new projects and create some fresh material.  My aim over the next month is to really sit down and figure out what direction I want to go in.  I am working on a sort of short to medium term project to help this and also doing a few other we jobs.

My kids tend to get a bit fed up with daddy and his camera but surprisingly my two eldest were willing to play ball and let me shoot them on the beach.  Mind you it was probably that I took them to the beach that sold it to them.  It was lovely to just follow them and shoot away.  I'm really please with these photos.

Maybe there is somewhere special to you and your family and this is the sort of thing you would love.  If so give me a shout and we can sort something out.

About me

Memories are made with the click of the shutter. a passing moment is captured in that split second.

Our lives are a journey full of learning and experiences. Some things we chose to do other things we have no control over. People come into our lives and change them forever. They are part of our learning and experiences.

Memories of those times and faces fade with age. That's why making photographs is so important. Photographs capture those moments for ages to come. Words often fail to truly describe those memories. Photographs contain life.

Since my childhood I have loved looking at photographs. Getting

lost in the details as they can take me to places I have never been before.

Growing up hours would have been spent daydreaming about the places

discovered through them. Taking photographs has become more a part of

my life with each passing year.

I want people to get lost in my photographs the way I did as a child. When they look at the images the memories should come flooding back for them. They should tell a story for anybody who looks at the images. It as a great honour to be allowed into people’s lives on such special

days and asked to capture the memories for them.

With a blend of documentary, traditional, & commercial/alternative style wedding photography giving every bride & groom the very best images from their day.

I live in Newtownards, have been blessed with a family and have 3 rather lively kids

to keep me busy. My faith is the backbone of this business. To do

something you love is great and is something to thank God for.
