Hello my name is Wes, a self-taught local photographer living the dream. All of the photo's you see on my website today were taken by myself over the past 4 years.

At the end of 2013, after 10 years as an insurance underwriter I decided to replace my 9-5 career with my then photography hobby. Yes it was a big risk but with the support of my other half it has so far exceeded expectations.

I eat, breath & sleep photography. I love every aspect of my work, it's great getting out and losing myself in the moment and time just flies when I'm behind the camera and lens.

Taking long exposure shots at night is my favourite - every shot is unique and tries to capture the vibrant local atmosphere.

It is a real compliment when receiving positive feedback on my work and I feel humbled that in the current economic environment people spend their hard earned money on my photography.

I have also supplied my work to local businesses including the Hilton & Braemar Estates in Manchester.

In my bag I currently have a Nikon D810 body with a lens line-up including a Tamron 15-30 f2.8vc, Nikon 50 f1.8g, Nikon 24-70 2.8g, Sigma 150-600 c and a Sigma 105 macro.

I am always looking to increase my skill set as a photographer. I am currently developing my work in macro, product & portrait photography and will continue to look for improvements and tweaks to my style.

Thank you for your time and support.
