Welcome to the home of 3 Peaks Photography, I am a Yorkshire based published photographer operating in that strange area known as the semi-pro level. I don’t shoot for a living, I shoot for the love of it with a passion for telling stories through stunning images, recording historic moments and generally having a good time whilst doing it!
A little about me and my photography
I don’t want to bore you to death here, so I’ll keep it short. I have always carried around a Point and Shoot camera wherever I went but it wasn’t until I started trying to take pictures underground whilst caving that I began to appreciate just what photography was all about, All of a sudden to take an image of passable quality required more than just shouting ‘Cheese’. Forced to think about things such as aperture, F-stops and lighting it was as if a light bulb was switched on and suddenly I was aware of just how creative you can be when you not only know how to use your equipment but seek out ‘That Shot’ and approach everything with a passion for seeking out the moments and details that make life so varied and unique
I am a professional member of The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, The Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers and Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.
My biggest personal passion lies in Cave photography, for a normal caving shoot (1-5 shots in location) it takes an average of 20 Hours. A huge amount of planning, organisation and team work is involved and that’s even before you start trying to haul all your camera gear down a cave! (see picture below) so you know I’ll work hard to get the images you want, even in extreme conditions.
I’ve yet to meet a photographer who does not enjoy a taking a good landscape but for me the buzz and excitement of meeting people at events and portrait sessions has to be up there as one of the greatest jobs in the world!
There is a selection of images in my portfolio page which should give you a small insight into my work
