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.
