About Me

Cornwall Photographer

You can call me Al

(There’s a song there somewhere)

I’m a wedding photographer based here in Cornwall. My love for photography began around the age of 10 when a teacher lent me his SLR camera and showed me the process of developing film in a darkroom.

I grew up in Surrey but holidayed on beaches in South America, Portugal and Spain due to where my parents were working at the time. This is undoubtedly what drew me to live here by the sea.

I’m married to Heather and we have two little water babies Bella and Holly. Outside photography, we love spending time in and around the coast, walking the cliffs, surfing, diving or out on our boat searching for wildlife.

My photography curiosity reignited on my travels, where was fortunate to share space with some incredible humans and majestic animals. Back home, I experimented mixing studio lights with underwater photography and started a side hustle photographing people in the water. I also began shooting portraits above water for local schools and universities around the country. 

I honestly think I have the best job in the world now and still pinch myself that I get to spend time with people on significant days of their lives documenting them in one of the most picturesque areas in the world.
