About Me

Thank you for showing an interest in my work.

I’m Aaron, a freelance professional photographer currently residing in North London with close connections to my home county of Cornwall.

Working within the highest standards of contemporary photography, I provide an exceptional service delivering dynamic imagery through passion, versatility & creativity. I don’t confine my work to one genre but excel within commercial, product, food, music & event photography.

I live and breathe the world of photography and it has been part of my life since I was 16 years old, when I was given my first camera. In 2010, I graduated with my degree from the ATRiuM School of Creative & Cultural Industries in Cardiff. Since then I have built a world around photography, capturing a wide range of subject matter, finding a blend between city and ocean life in London and Cornwall.

Life as a Photographer in Cornwall

Growing up in Cornwall provided me with a perfect place to explore and develop my photography. Its natural beauty, rugged coastline and stunning landscapes meant I was spoilt for choice for inspiration.

Shortly after graduating I started my own business with an open-minded approach to the kind of work I would do. This took me down the route of surf photography in Newquay and kick started an amazing journey, which luckily has also taken me to Morocco, New Zealand & California on assignments.

Making a living as a Cornish Photographer was not easy at first and I soon realised I would need to expand my work further. I always enjoyed photographing people as well as the natural world and after gaining experience on commercial and lifestyle shoots, within the surf industry, I felt I was ready to capture weddings. Wedding photography in Cornwall is a wonderful thing, with beautiful countryside or dramatic coastline on every venue’s doorstep. It has become a major aspect of my work and I now shoot weddings all over the country and even overseas.

Cornwall will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s where everything began and my photography roots take me back there regularly.

Being a Photographer in London

After initially building my business in Cornwall, I decided to throw my hat at being a photographer in London and it was the best decision I could have made. Working in one of the most vibrant cities helped me broaden my portfolio and thrive amongst new challenges and a wider variety of subject matter.

Over time, I have developed an eclectic portfolio working in many areas within the industry. From studio work, to location shoots at restaurants and events, grasping new techniques, dealing with diverse projects, keeps my work fresh and innovative. There’s always something new to learn and I love not confining my passion to one specific niche.

Involving myself in commercial photography was somewhat of a game changer and was just what I needed to expand my career. I devoted significant time and energy into building a strong client base and feel very lucky to have worked with some of the most exciting and recognisable brands in the world. Clients such as Arctic Monkeys, War Child, The Brits, Diageo, Samsung, Hotel Nobu, Arsenal, Rioja, EE, Marriott, Asda, Hello Fresh, Reebok, The Guardian, Common Goal & The PFA reflect my achievements in photography today.


My Photography Style & Ethos

I have been described as an ’empathetic photographer’, in the sense that I can stand back and capture something or someone from their perspective, or the viewers’.  In my eyes, a good photographer doesn’t look for the glory to reside around them, but achieves the best possible portrayal of the story they are trying to encapsulate. There’s a fine line between intruding and shaping a scenario and I am well equipped to differentiate between the two from brief to brief.

I would describe myself at times as being a fine art photographer who specialises in recording scenes and interactions in an organic manner. Whilst at other times, I am a creative who visualises a story or identity and what it needs to be represented through imagery.  I work digitally using Nikon equipment but have also began exploring film photography, something I haven’t done since university. I am always seeking new projects and inspiration and feel that photography is something you can always develop and work at.

I excel in noticing the little details and capturing scenes, people and moments in unique and powerful ways.

My Photography Ambition

I am a passionate person who has, when possible, used photography as a tool for change. I don’t want photography to just be a means to an end. I care a great deal about our planet and constantly strive to involve myself in ethical projects that in turn promote positive change.

I have been lucky to work with some wonderful organisations including Triodos Bank, Honest Bottle, The Green Party, Keep Britain Tidy, Street League, Heura Foods, Choose Love & Finisterre.  I have curated climate change exhibitions, volunteered for local wildlife charities where focusing my efforts in raising awareness for causes through art is paramount.

I am proud to have had work featured in National Geographic, The Guardian and many other well established publications.

I want to keep sharing my work throughout the online world but want to put more effort into sharing ideas and work in the three dimensional world, collaborating with artists and organisations, printing and exhibiting work where possible.
