MORE ABOUT SIMON …
If you’ve been taking a good look around this website then you’ve probably already got a good idea about my style of photography and the services I can offer. In this section, I want to let you know a little more about me when i’m not behind the camera and the reasons I love this job so much. When i’m not working, I have two main hobbies. Motorsport (in particular the world of autograss racing) and vintage cameras & analogue film photography – you can find out more about these on my personal website, www.simontickle.co.uk .
Having previously studied and worked in Psychology & Mental health, I’ve been taking photographs for the best part of 10 years, and made the jump to become a full time photographer back in 2014. This is a decision I have never looked back on! I love the ability photography gives you to make a difference. We have, on average, just over 36 million minutes to live, love and laugh! It’s an absolute privilege to be invited by my customers into their lives and tell their story; to turn their precious moments into memories that last a lifetime. I get to meet so many amazing people, see babies grow into adults, but best of all I get to create work with value. Great photography is one of the few things that rapidly appreciates in personal value with time. Think about it, those portraits of your great grandma are worth more to you now than they ever have been.
I believe photographs make one of the most powerful ways of telling a story. Let me tell yours.
