Knaresborough's award winning, internationally acclaimed photographer
Life is for living…..Memories for sharing and keeping. We create memories every day.
From being a small boy I have had a passion for capturing life’s special moments through the lens of a camera. Now, as a family man, that passion has taken me all over the world and given me the chance to share my talent and vision, capturing moments of excitement and humour through to moments of quiet reflection.
From marriages & iconic scenery to new born babies, special occasions and daily life, my camera is always on hand to capture that moment in time and produce an image that reflects the memory.
I use only top spec Canon DSLRs, and have a full suite of industry standard editing software but, more importantly, I have years of experience working with people from all walks of life, helping them to realise beautiful images, knowing how to blend in when I need to or stepping up to help illicit that elusive smile and knowing where to be so that I don’t miss that never to be repeated moment in time.
"There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph"
I prefer to use natural light to capture my subjects in their own environment to ensure that images are as natural as possible but, as you’ll see from the images on this site, I am also adept at creating more artistic image styles to provide you with something a little different.
I focus mainly on Wedding photography but I also accept commissions for portraits, event photography and commercial images amongst others. I believe that diversity helps me to grow as a photographer; it stops me from getting stuck in a rut and keeps my images fresh.
I consider myself to be a very lucky person, I don’t go to work, I just carry a camera and share special moments with special people and then, afterwards, I get to make them smile all over again, watching those smiles is the greatest reward in the world.
Please have a look around my site and my images, I hope you enjoy them. If, afterwards, you would like to talk to me about your requirements please contact me using the form below.
I wanted some nice photos taken and chose Stuart for the job. He listened to what I wanted to achieve and put thought & time into discussions and planning well before the first picture was taken. He is polite and professional and had an amazing ability to really put me at my ease. I loved looking through the images with Julie, his wife, and it was a giggle choosing the ones I wanted with her. I am so happy with the results, this is a collection of photos of me and for me and I can't thank Stuart enough for the results.
We couldn’t be happier with the service Stuart provided, our special day was captured beautifully. He fit in really well with our guests, making our day more relaxed. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking at creating memories to last a lifetime.

Stuart saved the day at my daughter’s wedding by stepping in at the last minute when her photographer let her down. He provided a professional service, putting everyone at ease, capturing the magic moments of her special day with high quality pictures.
Having been impressed with Stuart’s work, my other daughter has now booked him to capture her magical day later this year.

Stuart was hired to photograph the celebrations to mark the 25th anniversary of the opening of our sheltered housing scheme. He made time to chat to our residents and was a great success with everyone. His photographs captured the day perfectly and were used in our Housing Newsletter.
