Hi! My name is Nigel and I am the proud owner of Inspire an Image Photography and Inspire an Image Wedding Photography.
I have always had a passion for photography, shooting all sorts of landscapes and animals in my early days on basic compact cameras, before my job moved me on to my first Digital SLR, unfortunately there was no training involved so auto mode was used most of the time.
A family member decided that maybe I should take my hobby to the next level and bought me my very own DSLR and so I began my journey to where I am today, only with a couple of courses an workshops and the rest pretty much just self-taught, to the point I now run my own workshops an courses, from basics course in Newcastle to Landscape Workshops on the Isle of Skye!
A former colleague took a great leap of faith, thanks to a recommendation from my best friend and booked me to shoot their wedding, my very first. Without them I have no idea if I would have broken into this area of photography, but now a few years on, I am proud to say I have shot a whole lot more weddings and love shooting them every time, the snowball effect ensuring that every year my bookings increase!
With a background in IT instructing, amongst other things, I also decided it was time to branch out with the business and develop a series of courses, some of which are still in development, but those that have been run have a 100% recommendation record from the course feedback, something else I am very proud of.
After learning more about the technical aspects of photography and how to create a different and unique image I moved on to submit images to bodies such as The Guild of Photographers, winning several awards and achieving lifetime membership to The Photographers Bar in my first year of membership with the guild, repeating this fete since and in 2018 I was announced as one of the top 10 international wedding photographers with the guild!
I hope my friends, family, colleagues and clients all continue to give me the unbelievable support that they already have, that way I will never be short of recommendations and bookings.
