About Me

North East Photographer Simon Hogben Profile Photo

I'm Simon, a full time professional photographer living in County Durham.

I'm not originally from this area but have been living 'up North' for many years now - settling here with my wife, two kids and two dogs. I've always been interested in art and creativity. I studied Art History at University and, at one time, had a sideline selling reproduction paintings and working as a pavement artist in Edinburgh. The chance to be creative and work as a photographer is a privilege and is something that excites me every time I pick up my camera.

From years of photographing people I believe I can bring out the 'best side' in anyone - whether you love to be in front of the camera or are a little more reserved. People have described me as friendly and down-to-earth and I feel I can put people at their ease.

I cover weddings primarily in the North of England and available to work at venues across the UK and further afield.

The role of a photographer during a wedding is so important. It would be great to hear about the plans for your special day so please get in touch.
