Hello there! My name is Jason, I am a documentary photographer from St Ives, Cambridgeshire. I am a husband to a beautiful wife, and a dad to an amazing little girl.
My photography passion started off with landscapes and travel, now I love to photograph people. I photograph weddings, families, nurseries, aswell as the odd portrait too.
Since becoming a dad life has changed quite a bit, there is a lot less travel involved however there is still lots of adventures. Even when I am not working, I always have a camera on me to make sure I capture all my own special family moments.
If you want to hear my story, please read the article at the bottom of this page!
As a family photographer, I will capture natural images of everyday family life as well as those special days out. This could be as simple as messy playtime at home or a quick trip to the park, in doing this I will document the special connections between a family.
My approach to documentary family photography is to immerse myself into your home routines, and photograph without disturbing or orchastrating them. While this type of photography still follows some elements of portrait photography, it focuses more on story telling.
Life moves very quickly, so lets frame those everyday moments that will be cherished now, and in the future!
Just like my family photo sessions, my approach to nursery photography is relaxed. My aim is to get away from the more traditional posed photos, and capture images where the children can just be themselves.
My candid style of photography, allows me to work around the nursery timetable ensuring I do not disturb the normal daytime activities. I always recommend a morning for my sessions, as the children are a lot more alert and ready for the day ahead.
I believe taking photos of children, in and around the nursery also documents the enviroment that a child and parent will want to remember in years to come. I can of course take photos of the setting and staff too for the nurseries benefit, this can then be used for your own marketing purposes. These sessions are not only great for the parents, but for the nursery owners too!
For a wedding, I am a documentary photographer. My approach is all about telling a story through pictures, at a wedding I will be unobtrusive and capture the natural moments as they unfold, making sure I document the beauty of your day.
I will not be bossy, that is not my style. I will photograph discreetly to make sure all parts of your day remain true. Documenting your day in this way helps me capture all the best images, whether it be the emotion on your family's faces or simply the children getting up to no good.
The documentary style wouldn't usually contain posed couple or group shots. I know to many of you this is an important part of the day as it was to us on my wedding day. If this is something that is required, we will certainly do this for you. We do not want to turn your special day into a staged photo shoot, we will move quickly to get you back having fun with your family and friends!
