“Its more important to click with people than click the shutter”
Hello there I’m Tim
I am married to Amanda ( and yes it was the best day of my life!) and have 2 amazing children who are my hero’s. Hannah is working in Thailand teaching English and Bekka shares my studio with me and runs Frock and Soul Bridal, the perfect match you might say.
I’m never happier that when I have a camera in my hand, I love art but can’t really draw very well so photography is my creative outlet and my way of expression. The joy a great set of wedding images gives makes me very happy. I have just been awarded “2016 Wedding Photographer of the Year” by the IPPN who are a body of industry professionals so that was a pretty fab end to last year. This Year I have already been finalist chosen from over 1500 submitted images in “The Worlds Top 10 Photographers” voted by OneEyeland.
I specialise in alternative, innovative and elegant Reportage Wedding Photography. I take great pride in capturing those special, once in a lifetime moments for you to cherish, and turning these moments into beautiful visual memories- & of course I do this in our own unique and innovative way! I don’t look at other wedding photographers for influences, I take inspiration from art, fashion and film. My style is not for everyone, I’d go as far as to say it’s only for a small cross section of people looking for a wedding photographer. When you look at my work you will know if I’m for you and if you are I look forward to a great collaboration with you.
In my personal life I love music, motorsport, mountain biking, climbing and going to art galleries, most of these activities I do with Amanda who gives me a run for my money . I Dj and with Amanda put on music events under the banner of PoP uP. Every few months we put on an event and generally sell out Uppermill Civic Hall with a 460 strong audience. We recently had the seminal Manchester punk band Buzzcocks, after that we have a Ska and Northern Soul night, then The James Taylor Quartet and Clint Boon.
Aside from this I race a classic Lambretta in the British Scooter Sport championship, I came 4th in class last year with I’m chuffed with. I race for and sponsor TSP Racing Team.
I often work with Amanda on weddings, she has a brilliant artistic eye and is fab at spotting shot sand locations, Amanda also has years of experience in photography and also in videography and has photographed some awesome bands and musicians including Elvis Costello, Echo and the Bunnymen and The Smiths.
What else can I tell you about myself. I probably like red wine a little too much, I’m a bit partial to chocolate too! I like festivals and have a camper van, not an old VW bus unfortunately I already have enough on my hands with a 40+ year old Lambretta.

We love to meet up with our clients so we can really get a feel for who you are as people and so that you can get to know us, too! We have our own cosy photography studio and gallery where we encourage clients to pop in to view more of our work and chat in more detail about requirements. It’s located in the Uppermill, Saddleworth region of Greater Manchester and is a lovely day out as it’s right in the heart of a quaint village full of super cute cafes and shops.
If a meeting at the studio is inconvenient for you, then we are more than happy to meet elsewhere or even skype depending where you are in the country/world! We do a lot of travelling and are happy to travel literally anywhere to photograph. Feel free to get in touch for more details on anything including what we require when travelling long distances. Heck, you might even make some new friends out of us, who knows!?
