A LITTLE ABOUT ME & WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT...
Nice to meet you, I'm Joel, a freelance, documentary style wedding, events and product photographer based in Frome in the beautiful county of Somerset.
How am I different? I donate 10% of my fee to go towards combating deforestation and tree planting initiatives in rural Malawi so by choosing me you could very well fund a forest. I do this because I treasure Malawi and its people. From working there and being a lover of the natural world I believe it is my responsibility to protect the environment and improve the quality of lives of those that I have come to know as family.
My style is described by us camera folk as 'documentary', this means I take photos that are as natural as possible and aren't staged. I love images that show the day as it unfolds, telling a story and capturing all those special and precious moments without sacrificing the flow of your day. This allows you to just relax, be comfortable and enjoy yourself. I find this is the best way for me to catch real emotions, atmosphere and character without those cliché awkward smiles.
I have learnt that through photography I can still find a way to make the World a little better. Why wouldn't we want that?
