Hi and welcome to some stuff about me. Always feels a bit awkward to talk about yourself but here goes…
I’m the oldest of four brothers. This initial set-up was brilliant for adventure and banter but equally has driven me to be slightly overly-competitive. My Mum cried when the last boy was born (she always wanted a girl).
I’ve got two pups. A pigeon-pair as we say in Norfolk (do they say that elsewhere too?). My gorgeous girl Amelie and scamp of a son Rui. Yep, I know it’s a slightly different name – but I like it!
Sarah is my partner of 18 years, the love of my life and amazing mama-bean to my lil’ sprouts.
In a previous life I sailed the seven seas taking photos for a living. I was a photographer in the Royal Navy for 12 years.
I’m actually doing my dream profession. I love shooting weddings. I mean, proper love it. Good job really, as there is no Plan B!
I’m not a great dancer but I’ll be getting down on the dance-floor with y’all. I’ve actually lost the ability to dance without holding a camera though. If I’m without one my arms just seem to flail about.
My spotify is always on. I enjoy both old and new tunes. Fleetwood Mac, Joy Division, maybe a bit of Bruce Springsteen – all the way through to Arcade Fire, Alt J and Christine and the Queens. I turn it on and then Sarah turns it off.
Love a game of football. I’ve got one trick (the rainbow kick – which I’ve never used in a proper game).
I used to wear some weird stuff back in the day. I’ve toned it down a bit now. Hooked Sarah though haha.
So that’s a little bit about me! I hope it hasn’t put you off too much (honesty is the best policy!).
