James Simmons Photography

Writing bio’s is my Kryptonite because it’s usually where modesty takes a back seat while casually claiming prestige by name dropping sponsors and listing awards for shameless self-promotion in an attempt to convince you that I’m qualified to be here. So instead;

On my first ever wedding, I was walking backwards shooting the couple coming down the aisle and tripped over the flower girl. The flower girl was howling and I pretty much wanted to die at that moment. That was 12 years ago, I’ve stuck with it and learnt a few tricks since then… I still walk backwards a lot though.

Randomly for some reason I always seem to tear up in movies when I’m on a plane, it gets pretty awkward when I’m travelling by myself.

I’m pretty much allergic to rich blue skies, mowed green lawn and people looking at the camera smiling unnaturally.

I have an unhealthy obsession with BBQ and brewing craft beer but it’s a little bit fun and a good distraction.

I became a photographer so I could enjoy what I do, so the same goes for the experience with my couples. I’m all about the good times. Natural expression and interaction are what I like to explore and often gets me excited like a 5 year old on red cordial at a birthday party, but mostly I’m chill. I dig the adventure, engagement and the connection you need to tell people’s story and am attracted to moody, dramatic lighting. I love to Break The Rules (of photography not in general, like I’m not a criminal, a grammar criminal maybe).
