UK & Yorkshire Event Photographer

We don’t just photograph weddings. Hornsea, Hull and York based event photographer specialising in capturing the moment through documentary, lifestyle portraiture and reportage event photography.

With my documentary approach it means I will be working in the background, to capture the people, the event and atmosphere as it happens.

I have now photographed well over 200 weddings and events over the years, and I absolutely love what I do. I’ve travelled throughout the UK and Yorkshire providing photography for parties, charity events, sport and graduations.

I’ve photographed events for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, York Racecourse, Tribfest, Wellifest, the Festival of Vintage, along with providing photography for Go Run for Fun, Circus Starr, and many more.

I have also been the chosen event photographer for the University of Hull and the York event photographer for the University of York.

For event photography prices start at £100, but please do contact us to discuss your requirements. After editing all clients then receive a free online gallery to view and download the high-resolution images. You can see more of our work over on our event photographer blog.

HOW I SHOOT THE EVENT

Most know me as a documentary wedding photographer, and I use this same approach for any event that I attend. For this I will mostly be working in the background capturing the event, the people and the moments on the day. I am passionate about event photography and I love the experience and challenge of visiting a wide variety of locations.

HOW I DELIVER THE PHOTOS

I place no restriction on how many photos I take on the day or deliver to a client. After editing all clients then receive a secure online gallery to view and download the images. Via the online gallery the photos can be downloaded in high-resolution or web friendly sizes. Typically after an event clients can expect the photos to be with them within a couple of days.

EQUIPMENT AND GEAR

Every event can be different. From outdoors to indoors, from good lighting to terrible lighting. To cover all bases I use a combination of fast prime lenses to zoom lenses. All of my lenses have the ability to open wide, which allows more light into the sensor. I can at times turn to using on camera and off camera flash, but this does depend on the type of event and venue. I am now entirely a Sony Alpha shooter, using both the Sony A9ii and Sony A7IV, first class and award winning cameras.

Some of the events I have photographed range from parties, university events, club nights, classic car and steam rallies, I have even photographed circus events.
