About me

My Story…

I first discovered my passion for photography in 2001 whilst studying traditional film and dark room photography. I already worked full time as an artist and designer but after adding two children to the mix, I came to realise that my love of portrait photography was a passion I wanted to share with others.

I specialise in Commercial Photography and Portrait Photography. Both types of photography require a different set of skills and level of experience, but with portraiture, one thing remains the same: my ability to capture people’s expressions and personalities are what makes RJM Photography authentic. Making people feel relaxed and able to be themselves in front of the camera is what clients love about their session with me.

Life as a professional photographer means no two days are ever the same, which suits me just fine. One day I might be doing Product Photography at home in my studio in Bedlington, Northumberland, or meeting clients over a coffee to discuss their photography needs. Other days I’m on-location at a local business or with a family at a local beauty spot.

It’s a true joy to do what I do every day. I strive to make every session with my clients as easy and enjoyable as possible.  Listening to my clients’ needs is a top priority to make sure they get the results they’re looking for from RJM Photography.
