Founder of This is Reportage & This is Reportage: Family

I believe in capturing real moments so much that I founded This is Reportage and This is Reportage: Family – worldwide communities of photographers who celebrate documentary wedding photography and documentary family photography respectively.

With a combined membership of almost 800 photographers, both sites feature Awards for individual captures and Stories (series of images from a single wedding or family), feature educational articles and videos to help us all improve, and have grown to become internationally respected and trusted authorities in their field.

I’m lucky to be a wedding photographer Cornwall, as we have so many fab venues and beaches (and even beach venues!), but I actually only shoot a small percentage of my weddings here – I’m fortunate to be recommended by wedding planners and venues all over the UK (including being a wedding photographer London many times, as well as Surrey, Cambridge, the Cotswolds, Yorkshire and more) and Europe (including weddings in France, Greece, Switzerland, Turkey, and Montenegro), so most weekends will see me travelling. I like this, though; very lucky that my ‘work’ enables me to discover new places frequently!

Click below for a few examples of my work from UK, European and Cornwall weddings (with lots more featured weddings over here).

  • Hi I'm Alan

    Hi, I'm Alan (that semi-bald chap with the camera)

    Yes, that’s me, but what I lack in hair I hopefully make up for in photography skills – or bad humour, at least…

    I’m a wedding photographer based in Cornwall, though I shoot all over the UK and Europe (over 300 weddings and counting) – and though I know a lot of us say it, my work really is about capturing your day totally un-posed and without direction. That’s what I love; that’s what I do.

    What else do I love? Dawson’s Creek (which I write without shame), table tennis, Dark (an amazing German series on Netflix), cider, and my wife and kids (and I didn’t only include that last bit because I know my wife may read it…)
