I'm Simon, a full time professional photographer living on the North Yorkshire / County Durham border.

I'm not originally from this area but have been living on Teesside 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. (I know how this important is because in all honesty… I hate being in front of a camera myself!). I’ve been described as friendly and down-to-earth and I like to feel I can put people at their ease.

I work primarily in the North of England and am available to work across the UK and further afield.

It would be great to hear from you so please get in touch.
