Hello and welcome to my portfolio website. My name is Simon, and I'm an amateur photographer based in Devon in the UK. I have been taking photos on Digital SLR cameras ever since the Nikon D40 became available to the mainstream consumer, but I also shot Film many years prior to this. I mostly shoot for fun, but recently I have partnered with a friend, and we have ventured into the world of paid photography such as weddings and some family portrait work. Although we are experienced photographers, the world of professional work is a giant leap. Please feel free to browse my photographs. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had making them :D

Mamhead Obelisk

Published April 27th, 2013

Probably one of the best days so far in 2013, and we decided to take Lucy out on her bike so that we could experience Mamhead Obelisk, or rather the view from up there.

It's amazing, it truly is - although is was very hazy when we were there so not the best photographic situation.

Writer's Block

Published August 29th, 2011

A friend and I responded to an advert calling for Photographers to help document a new theatre production by Writer's Block.

Taken from their Facebook Page - "Writer’s Block – Theatre to Inspire; aims to inspire, captivate and transport audiences combining naturalistic performances with more abstract art forms."

The production will be of Wuthering Heights and although will be in period dress, the interpretation seems to be a little more contemporary. We have been tasked with the concept of documenting the process, from auditions right through first curtain.

It will be set in a church, in February 2011, with amazingly LOW light levels, lit almost by candle light and lanterns - a photographers nightmare :D yet also a huge challenge.
