RAW Media Photography | About Me - RAW Media

Hi. Okay I know why you're here, let's get to it...


The short...

Born and raised in the UK but always on the look out for new global adventures, together with my wife and two mischievous but incredibly cute halflings.

The long...

I possess a passion for creating authentic and unique images - a passion which began way back in school, in a dusty storeroom-cum-darkroom. What was on offer to me was an opportunity to rejuvenate a hidden, cramped and unloved  corner within the Art classroom.

This over took my life like no other subject. Granted I was working with a clunky old Russian camera and film but this was what I had and I went with it.  They weren’t obstacles, but tools to capture my view of the world, albeit in black and white. This enthusiasm seeped into the class which led to an ever expanding group of like minded individuals, getting lost for hours watching the slow development of that day's assignment materialise before their eyes. That excitement is still as strong today as then but now after a day's photoshoot I sit comfortably in front of my  computer instead - no film, no chemicals… never mind ;)

In 2015 I started Raw Media as an outlet for my creative passion for photography. Since then it has flourished and I have had the opportunity to capture an array  of events, portraits and weddings.  I'm one of the lucky guys that gets to say "I do what I love and I love what I do." And I mean it!

Why me...

Well, I'm not all about the technical. I can do the technical, but really I'm about the people and the connection. I want to see the real you portrayed in the lens. Less cheese, more of me capturing the real story. It can take a bit of a time to relax in front of the camera and be the "real  you" - and I get it. I'm the same, But once everyone is relaxed  I can begin to tell the  authentic, beautiful story, through my camera. 

"Superb", "How do I Choose??", "They're fantastic, thank you so much, we love them" - just a few phrases I'm proud to have received  regarding the images I deliver. I’m happy when you’re happy, and not a moment before.

I would like to say to you I’m just a wedding photographer, a portrait photographer or a headshot guy -  but I can’t as I love photographing all of these and more. For me it's about the people I meet and collaborate with, and the chance for me to bring the best out of you and those around you.
