Hello, I'm Pete.
Operating from my studios in both Spain and the UK, I have been running a professional photography service for some time now and have a reputation for getting the best results, whatever the occasion. I work in a relaxed and professional manner and have the experience of dealing with a host of different situations including wedding shoots and commercial projects.
Images that tell a tale
I use a photo-journalist style that catches those little moments and tells your story. Whether it's a wedding, a family gathering, or something more challenging, my job is to create something that is personal and memorable. I believe that photographs provide meaningful snapshots of our lives, capturing those all-important occasions at just the right moment; photos that can be enjoyed for many, many years to come.
Most people have a family album they pull out every so often in order to take a relaxing trip down memory lane. These are often deeply personal images that bring out a whole range of thoughts and reminiscences that are part of our lives. I believe that the skill of a professional photographer can help you to create powerful images that sustain and evoke the emotions that have made life worth living.
How I Work With You
Photography isn't just about pointing the camera and pressing the shutter button. I take the time to get to know my clients and find out what makes them tick. Every person or group of people has their own dynamic and the good photographer uses the camera to tap into this, whether it is creating the right lighting or being on hand to capture that perfect moment. Once you get everyone relaxed, you'd be surprised what a difference it makes to taking that perfect photograph.
More About Pete
I didn't plan on becoming a photographer, which might seem a strange confession to start off with. I grew up in a military family and for most of my early life sincerely believed I would follow my parents into the service. But fate has a funny way of showing you a different path – I had a little accident at the age of 18 so wasn't able to enlist. That meant I had to find something else to do and I ended up, quite by chance, working in a photography shop.
From there it was just a matter of time before I got the snapping bug and became interested in all the technical aspects as well as developing the knowledge and skill that goes into making a successful picture. I studied hard and finally started full time as a photographer, working with some high profile clients such as Dolce and Gabanna, Virgin and MacMillan, New York.
Over the years I've taken a few snaps of celebrities too, including the Sugababes, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Eugenie, Peter Andre and Stavros Flatley. My core business, however, is working with commercial and private clients, making that special day something to remember, working with families to create that perfect portrait, or bringing a new commercial product range to life with photos that more than catch the eye.
