Hello my name is Wes, a self-taught local photographer living the dream. All of the photos you see on my website today, I have taken over the past 4 years.

At the end of 2013, after 10 years as an insurance underwriter it was time to replace my 9-5 career with my then-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 major businesses including the Hilton Hotel & Braemar Estates in Manchester.

In my bag I have a Nikon D810 body and the following glass (lenses) Nikon 16-35 f4, Nikon 50 f1.8g, Nikon 24-70 2.8g and a Sigma 105 hsm macro.

I am always looking to increase my skill set as a photographer. I love taking on new commissions and locations so please get in touch if you are looking for a unique piece.

Thank you for your time and support.
