Meet Simon

Snapping away since 2008

In a nutshell I’m an unashamed mad cat man, cheese fiend, wildlife lover and interior design obsessed guy in his mid 30s making the most of life.
I’m a born and bred Bristolian and proud of it. Bristol is a super cool and vibrant city with so much going for it. There’s always something to do and there’s definitely no way I’ll get bored.
I’ve been a photographer since I was a teenager (yes, a long time ago!) and a professional photographer for around 12 years.
I’m a big fun loving kid at heart and there’s nothing better than larking about and acting silly, but I don’t let that get in the way of my professionalism. In fact it often it helps my photography (especially when working with kids & making couples feel relaxed in front of the camera).
As well as being immersed in photography I love all things in the natural world (David Attenborough being my favourite human), anything visually creative, electronic music, decorative antiques and quirky home decor.
I live in a beautiful Edwardian terraced house with my partner in crime Carly and our 3 amazing cats. Carly and I have been together for almost an entire decade. I’m looking forward to what the rest of lives has install for us.
My furry family consists of Max, Louie and Charlie. They mean with world to me as both part of my family and as colleagues, keeping me company while I’m  working my magic in my home office (though to date I have not seen them do any work or make me a cup of tea!) They do make up for it with lots kisses and cuddles. 
When I’m not photographing humans I’m out at the crack of dawn taking pictures wildlife. Urban dwellers like the beautiful foxes is an ongoing project and I love to travel the UK and the rest of the world for many other species. So there’s rarely a day that passes that I haven’t done something photography related.
