Howdy, my name's Dave – head honcho at Connect Photography.
I am a friendly and down to earth chap, with a pretty good sense of humour.
Ever since I was a young child I have always been interested in creative things – drawing, painting and of course, photography. I love being able to capture a moment in time in a creative way and know that it can be there to see forever.
I've been photographing weddings for 10 years now and I love being part of people's special day. I love the opportunities to capture some stunning bride and groom portraits while also being able to capture those natural moments from the day... the moments that will never be repeated. I want couples to be able to look back and remember the day just as it happened.
I'm a bit of a self confessed geek and I love technology. This means that I am always looking for the latest and greatest thing with photography. The cameras I use are absolutely cutting edge and considered some of the best in the business. (For the fellow geeks out there, I use two Sony A9 cameras and Sony GM 1.4 prime lenses). I love the A9 cameras because they are completely silent and let me capture the ceremony without that annoying click... click!
I'm a bit of a lover of fantasy and I think this shows in a lot of my photography work – I love including those sweeping, atmospheric landscapes in wedding portraits.
I am a keen mountaineer/climber and this is where my passion for photography really took off – capturing some of the amazing scenery that the UK has to offer. I find that this experience is really useful with location photography as I have a eye for including the environment into my photography. It also means that I have a nice selection of stunning places to use for engagement and 'adventure shoots'.
