Documentary Wedding Photography

Brett's lifelong passion for photography started with a plastic camera and darkroom kit ...

After leaving school he got the break that put him on the path to achieving his ambition, a career as a photographer – he was offered an apprenticeship at principal newspaper, the Birmingham Post.

Brett honed his craft in the field of commercial and industrial photography and diversified, moving on to open his own wedding studio, gaining recognition as a Leica wedding photographer.

Brett then developed a specialism in documentary wedding photography with ‘street’ and reportage appeal. This led him to his camera of ultimate choice – the Leica M: his signatory look.

Leica Akademie Workshops

Brett was invited to act as Consultant Photographer for Leica Camera UK, coaching enthusiasts and professionals at Leica Akademie, Mayfair, London, and in Leica workshops worldwide.

Following the success of these Leica workshops, coupled with demand from Leica photographers, Brett developed an exclusive series of custom-built, one-to-one Leica coaching sessions:

... street photography, travel workshops, documentary weddings, camera-craft, Lightroom for Leica.

Leica Camera also commissioned Brett to shoot Leica for Leica: a series of creative photo-essays illustrating the unique look of Leica lenses through the eye of a Leica photographer.

Professional World Assignments

Brett now operates independently as a professional freelance photographer, coach and mentor.
He also travels for pleasure and shoots for fun; often at the same time.

Alongside his Leica workshops and documentary wedding photography, Brett also undertakes bespoke worldwide commissions and more personal one-to-one tuition projects.

Working exclusively with the Leica M camera system, Brett's shooting style is one of active observation, documenting life around him with both precision and spontaneity.
