Documentary Wedding Photographer

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 practised his craft in the field of commercial and industrial photography. He graduated moving on to open a wedding studio, gaining recognition as a documentary wedding photographer.

Further developing a niche ... for wedding photography with ‘street’ and reportage appeal, led Brett to his camera of ultimate choice – the Leica M: his signature look.

Leica Akademie Workshops

Leica Camera UK invited Brett to act as Consultant Photographer and Akademie Tutor.

His first serious excursion into the genre of street photography came about through training enthusiasts and professionals at Leica Akademie, Mayfair, London, and Leica workshops worldwide.

Following the success of Akademie Workshops, coupled with demand from Leica photographers, Brett developed an exclusive series of bespoke one-to-one Leica coaching sessions.

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.
