READ MORE about us
from air, from sea, from land
Pushing the boundaries of creative possibilities has always been at the forefront of our image making. Inscribed in to our logo are the words 'from air, from sea, from land'. Liam is the only UK photographer who creates images from the air using drone technology, from water using a specialist dive housing for his camera, and of course from land. He takes his drone and underwater housing wherever he goes and will create these images if the conditions allow ... and yeah, he's even been known to rock the underwater housing in our very own balmy UK waters! All he needs is a couple who is as excited about these types of photographs as he is!
Pioneers of new ideas
“Liam is an amazing wedding photographer. He was so easy to work with yet professional on the wedding day. He made all of our family’s feel comfortable and was great fun. I work with a lot of wedding photographers in my job and sometimes this is not the case. When the photos came back we couldn’t stop crying, they were amazing. They captured every aspect of our day and we couldn’t have been happier. We can’t recommend enough!”
