Okay, a bit about me. Not too sure where to start..

I’m a husband, dad to Ginge the 1.5 eared rescue cat, an avid traveller, a lover of anything carbohydrate-based, and a collector of camera stuff.

I’m based in the sleepy village of Shirland, in North East Derbyshire – there’s some wonderful pubs on our doorstep (that know me a little too well..) if you’re in the area and fancy a tipple.
I’m not what you’d call your typical wedding photographer; I’ll sneak a whisky in with the groom, bribe the bridesmaids Haribo, and pull out some seriously dodgy moves on the dance floor.

I stand by saying there is no better day than a wedding day, and I still get the same buzz from them today, as I did capturing my first so many years ago now.

Erm, Monkeymole..?

Okay, so here goes. The brand is named after my rather wonderful wife, who is the inspiration behind me taking a leap of faith into life as a wedding photographer.

After capturing a few friends weddings, I started receiving a few "I don't suppose you fancy capturing our wedding too?" type messages, which I initially dismissed. It was only when the wife told me she'd booked me two weddings, that I really didn't have a choice.. (I do love capturing weddings - honest!).

As such, I needed a brand, and wanted to incorporate the wife. Those that have met her, will know during the day she typifies a monkey; bundles of energy, lots of noise, and thinks I'm a 6ft5 climbing frame. The mornings however, she's a newly born mole; barely moves, doesn't make a peep, and can barely open those little eyes!

From there, Monkeymole was born..
