This is Me

"Some people call me the space cowboy yeah,

Some call me the gangster of love,

Some people call me Maurice,

'Cause I speak of the pompitous of love, 

People talk about me baby"  Steve Miller Band

Inspirational quotes I live by

"I like to be surrounded by splendid things."

Freddie Mercury

"Do something worth remembering."

Elvis Presley

"You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way."

Johnny Cash

"I don't see any boundaries between any of the art forms. I think they all inter-relate completely."

David Bowie

Let me introduce myself...

I'm Andy, a wedding and Live music photographer based in Derby.

I am a Yorkshireman. It's been said I sound like an extra from Game of Thrones, I'm no Jon Snow but I do have a spirit of adventure, hailing originally from the rugged beauty of Bronte country.

I have always believed that life is a celebration - and weddings are a vitally important part of the celebration of life.

 Before taking the plunge into making my passion for photography my full-time job, I worked in many different walks of life, with all sorts of people, and enjoyed every second. 

Living life to the full is key to me - I've been a roadie for rock bands, still own a huge collection of old school vinyl, love riding motorcycles, have climbed volcanoes to meet mountain gorillas, ridden in Zodiac inflatables and tracked sperm whales in the Atlantic.

To me, there is no such thing as a 'typical' wedding - you are individuals; your wedding day is uniquely yours.

I will work with you, listen to you, and use my expertise and experience to capture your personality and individuality - the essential 'you-ness' of the occasion.

I will tell your wedding story in a sumptuous mix of contemporary documentary photos and stylish portraiture, influenced by the glamour of the cinema.


I work with a sense of pleasure and joy - you can see the results here in my galleries

I offer a boutique service that is so much more than traditional wedding photography.
