HI! I’M BRIAN
THE STRANGER WITH THE CAMERA THAT YOU MAY INVITE TO YOU WEDDING.
I’m a Wedding Photographer in Cornwall and live in Falmouth with Michelle and our two children.
Born and raised in Birmingham I discovered a love for photography around the age of 11. I was always wanting to use my parents camera and then one birthday they brought me my own. I took pictures of everything! Family, friends, holidays, birthdays, nights out, gigs. This was long before everyone had a camera in their pocket. Everything was taken on film and I have hundreds of albums with all of these wonderful memories in.
I moved to Cornwall in 2005 and lived in Newquay for the first five years. Apart from being a surf bum, I rekindled my love of photography. I got my hands on a DSLR and discovered a whole new world of taking pictures.
I listen to music all the time. Metal, punk & rock was my first love, but my tastes now cover a huge range of songs and genres. I usually have 6 Music on in the background and am always listening out for something new. Check out what I’m listening to now with my 2023 playlist on Spotify.
I go to a lot of gigs, I sometimes photograph them too. This year I have photographed Muse, the Eden Sessions and most recently Boardmasters Festival in Newquay. Take a look at my Boardmasters 2023 review.
I read a lot of books. Current reading Faith, Hope and Carnage by Nick Cave & Sean O’Hagan. I’ve recently finished Broken Greek by Pete Paphides. Other favourites include Henry Rollins, Neil Gaiman, Cormac McCarthy, Chuck Palahniuk, Charles Bukowski, Christopher Brookmyre and a good rock n’ roll biography (I highly recommend the Beastie Boys Book and Mark Lanegan’s ‘Sing Backwards and Weep’).
Box sets, don’t we all love them! Currently loving the final seasons of Succession and Ted Lasso. As well as The White Lotus and Mr Inbetween.
And a few to finish with… I surf, have lots of tattoos, pretend that I’m a good cookand enjoy a beer from Verdant Brewing.
Now that we’ve broken the ice, have a look around the website and get in contact and tell me about your wedding plans!
