What are your greatest strengths?

With photographing 100s of weddings I have an experience of a wedding day that no Bride and Groom, or their guests have. Knowing when to be a silent shadow quietly documenting, when to lead or advise, and even when not to take photographs but to help the couple in another way is something I believe is amongst my greatest strengths.

Your key skills and abilities?

The manipulation of light is probably my key skill. I love natural light, but have developed skills in balancing natural light with flash, and also the use of flash for any given situation. I'm also a great communicator, I am able to work fast and keep to timings.

Describe your personality?

Having taken a recent personality questionnaire it appears I have a Choleric personality type, which is described here: “The good thing about being choleric is that you are a born leader. You possess qualities like being active, dynamic, decisive, strong-willed, self-sufficient, independent, unemotional, and not discouraged easily. You are a person exuding with confidence and you can run almost anything.”

What geographic areas do you cover?

I work mostly within a 75-mile radius of Sheffield, but can easily be persuaded to take jobs further afield. If I work out of my area its normally for a couple who I have been recommended to from a previous wedding.

What particular venues do you like?

The venues I like most are friendly and share my belief that this is the couples special day and will fall over themselves to make it stress and hassle-free. This, in my opinion, is more important than a grand staircase, or an award-winning garden. Of course, the best venues have it all :-)

Who or what inspires you?

Every time I see a great photo that touches me somewhere inside I am inspired. I love art, nature, and people, and photographs which have all three are my favourites.

What success have you had in photography (competitions - qualifications)?

I have achieved the ASWPP Standard and am very pleased with this as I am the only wedding photographer in South Yorkshire to have achieved this level.
I have also had a few images awarded the Highly Commended Status in the Reportage Wedding Photography Category.

In 2014 I won first place in "Their Big Day" competition. The competition was for all professional photographer in the UK and the idea was, to sum up, a wedding in just one image.

Photographic training and education?

I originally studied 0-level photography at college back in the 80s, then an access course in 2007 for which I achieved a merit or a distinction for every piece of work I undertook.
In 2013 have achieved the level LSWPP and then in 2015 I achieved the ASWPP level. At the time of writing, I am the only photography in South Yorkshire to achieve this level.

More about Rob B....

What do you love about your job?

I love variety, I take a mixed bag of photography jobs from food, property, corporate, and social. This means every day is different and every day brings a fresh challenge.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I'm never just a photographer. With so much experience in life and photography, I bring much more to the shoot than just a camera. I have an uncanny ability to pick up on subtle moments and anticipate arising moments and needs.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

LSWP 2013, ASWP 2015. ( at that time I was the photographer in S.Yorks to achieve this level. )

Winer of "Their big day" national competition in 2015.

A fun fact about this photographer

I am ugly because I don't have any hair. ( At least according to my granddaughter, who has beautiful long hair. )
