Well hello and thank you for stopping by.
I’m Eddie, a pocket-sized photographer with giant dreams and a glass that’s always half full.
Shall I let you into a secret? I’m not a fan of having my photo taken.
You too? No way!
That’s why I’ll always do my best to make you feel completely comfortable and relaxed before the clicking starts. It’s how we manage to have a fun time together and get amazing pictures.
Not much fazes me and I relish the smiles that can come with the unexpected. I have nerve-soothing and toddler-wrangling down to a fine art and have learnt to work with the unpredictable elements that mother nature throws at us. What a crazy sense of humour she has.
My photography is all about capturing the good times, and I feel so fortunate that I get to do it every day.
A potted history
Ever since I was a child, I’ve always enjoyed looking at life through a lens. Back then of course it was all about film (remember using up a roll of holiday photos with pictures of your bedroom carpet?!) At 13 years old my dad gifted me a Pentax 35mm film camera, I set up a makeshift darkroom in my basement and the love affair began.
Since then, so much has happened. I’ve made the move to digital, of course. My work has taken me around the globe to photograph families and weddings in some incredible locations. I’ve spoken at industry events and seen my work appear in magazines. And I’m super proud to have co-founded Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, a leading podcast for photographers.
Off duty Eddie
So what about when I’m not shooting?
I’m glad you asked.
I paint pictures, sip chilled rosé and listen to cheesy music. Rarely all three at the same time, but that would be some high quality me-time, for sure.
On a sunny weekend I love a bit of café culture and people-watching. Shoreditch is amazing for fashion, murals, fun and colour. You’ll also find me watching sport, live or on TV. I love it all from the gentle hum of a cricket match to the thrilling thunder of motor racing.
Being a little bit obsessed with cinema, I do enjoy a good movie night. Husband, kids and cats all crammed onto the sofa, hot chocolates all round and a cracking good film. You can’t beat it.
I believe photography should be about
