A photographer in love with light, shadow, colour and creativity.
Hi, I'm Pete
As a Lancashire based photographer I have always been a passionate creative. Photography is more than pointing a camera, it is about creating memories and expressing ideas creatively.
A degree in Graphic Illustration formed the early foundation to how I work all these years later. Naturally, my photography is a relaxed documentary style. From couples, family and new born photography through to CrossFit I strive to creatively capture each moment and tell the story as it happens.
I've worked with and for some great couples, families and companies. Here is a little of what they have to say.
A Few Reviews
"What an amazing experience. I have seen Peter's incredible work at CrossFit. He is able to profoundly capture emotions and experiences that us members go through. Whether it's focusing through a lift or cheering on a member, Peter really seizes the essentials of the moment. This is why I asked if he would do a shoot for Mike and myself. I have been with Mike for quite a while, but have very few pictures of us together. This is primarily because I'm so uneasy being in pictures. Peter made us feel SO COMFORTABLE being not only in pictures, but capturing the love that Mike and I have for each other. He really made us feel free to be our goofy self in some photos or cute-sy in others. This is exactly what I wanted. This is such a unique trait in a photographer. You can't find anyone more personable than Peter. In addition, Peter had a beautiful park in mind with incredible background views. He knew everything about how to work with the shadow of the trees or the overcast of the sky. He was literally hopping in and out of bushes to get some extraordinary shots. In addition, he kept us updated on how his editing was going. We got the photos in such a timely fashion- I know that he put the work in to making them perfect, while not taking a long time. I can't rave enough about Peter's skills. Keep up the work! You have quite a talent."

“First of all I wanted to express my thanks to Peter for covering two of our charity events in 2018. Not only did Peter attend and capture fantastic content he also consulted with myself the organiser pre the event to discuss the key styles, product and location shots. As a charity fitness event the photographs on the day not only make up our marketing but also offer priceless memories of the day for those in attendance. The content captured on the day included fantastic product photography used by our vendors and partners. Peter also worked with our other media staff scheduling in key moments to capture for our event. The feedback from our athletes on Peter’s photographs has been hugely positive and these had a surge in social media and online interactions.Peter’s skills were evident in a very difficult lighting venue at one of our events where other photographers have refused to take on the task, Peter hit the ground running. With a huge number of photographs from the event and the editing of these was incredibly fast and have been key images used in promotion of future events. Thank you again Peter.”
