Portrait and Landscape Photography in Devon

I’m Mike and I’m a photographer living in South Devon.

I specialise in wedding photography and documenting the amazing landscapes and people around the southwest.

Ever since I was young I have been drawn to the outdoors. As I’ve grown up in the area I started wild camping and finding the best views of the rural countryside that I could. This is very much my style of wedding photography as well, friendly and discrete documenting events as they unfold rather than being pushy and disturbing guests.

How does a DSLR work? Curiosity killed the camera.

Well that's not strictly true. A very heavy thunderstorm in the south of France killed my trusty D3000 (my first DSLR) but now I can report it's definitely finished off.…
