In a nutshell...
Hi guys I'm Simon and hand on heart I absolutely love my job. As well as being obsessed with photography I love all things in the natural world, anything visually creative, quirky home decor and my furry family. That's my 3 crazy cats Max, Louie and Charlie, which keep me company while I'm working in my home office.
I'm a big kid at heart but I don’t let that get in the way of my professionalism. I have a little 5 year old niece, who I always love to see and with our shared love of animals we like to go cat fishing. That's dangling a toy mouse on a string and trying to find one of the Withyman family's many cats.
The extended cut...
In 2006 I started working for a contemporary portrait studio based in the Paintworks, Bristol. By 2008 at the age of 24 I became a director of that company. As the main location photographer and busy member of the studio team it was there that I learnt how to build a rapport with clients and make them feel at ease in front of the camera.
However, in 2013 I sold my share of the business to pursue a freelance career and expand my photographic horizons. Since then I've focused my attention on photographing weddings in a more stylish manor and creating an unique lifestyle approach to my family portraits.
I feel very privileged to call my photography career a full-time job. Some of the most rewarding parts of what I do is seeing happy clients faces once I've completed a job & knowing that my photographs will be treasured for a lifetime.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this website and my life's work. Hopefully be seeing you soon! :)
