A little information
about the man behind the camera
Hi. I'm Ed and I've been photographing weddings for several decades and started when it was all about processing film and developing prints in a darkroom. The last fifteen years its all been digital and I do my image processing using computers.
The story so far
I grew up playing a lot of sport, fishing, listening to Radio Luxembourg, playing guitar and 'making things' in my fathers workshop.
In my teens I enjoyed playing football, tennis, gymnastics, badminton and fencing (foil/epee not hedges). Today, I still play several hard sessions of badminton each week and some tennis whenever time and weather allows.
I met and married my lovely and understanding wife Julie many years ago and we have a son Thomas and a daughter Amy, which have both since left our nest.
Love photography, love weddings
Discovered photography at Brunel University when studying engineering.
Fell in love with photography and started attending fine art and photography classes.
From oils -to- darkroom -to- Photoshop
As a teenager I enjoyed painting in oils but this was replaced by developing prints in my own darkroom.
I spent many years working as an operative for local professional photographers (my apprenticeship) before getting enough work to branch out in my own business.
Film has now been replaced by digital photography and now find I have regained a similar level of freedom using computer based editing software as I did when painting in oils.....Yipeeee!
