— The Essence of my Photography —

❝ Photography for me is the privilege to capture someone’s special day, the ability to share my knowledge with other Leica photographers, and freedom to document life's moments
– by choice, or by chance ❞

Wedding | Documentary

I carry a small discreet Leica camera – no kit bags or tripod, working in the background to observe and document candid scenes unobtrusively.

My style of working enables me to find individual touches and unobserved moments so that you remember your day as it unfolds, rather than as arranged by a photographer.

My experience in wedding & portrait photography, commercial & industrial, street & documentary, gives me the versatility to create a visual diary of your wedding. Your photography is natural and realistic, capturing the character and the characters of your wedding day …

I personally capture your wedding day from getting ready in the morning, through to the ceremony, the reception, the speeches, and continue on to the evening’s first dance.

Your photographic images are individually processed as high-resolution digital files on USB and provided in a keep-sake box with licence to print and share.

Working with your selection of photographs, timeless design meets artisanship in a unique and exquisite, hand-made Queensberry album of your choice.

Workshop | Coaching

Brett is a multi-disciplined independent professional known for shooting exclusively Leica M. His signatory look is the synergy between street photography, documentary and lifestyle imagery.

Brett shoots Leica for Leica and has led a series of workshops at The Leica Akademie, Mayfair, and Leica Store Manchester. He uses a hands-on approach, sharing his personal experience to coach professionals and enthusiasts in all aspects of a photographer's development.

Following the success of these workshops, coupled with demand from photographers worldwide, Brett has developed an exclusive series of bespoke 1-1 coaching sessions. These sessions are ideally suited to digital M users or aspiring owners, both amateur and professional.

Advanced individual coaching is tailored to maximise photographer potential. The workshop day encompasses your own areas of interest and experience with the M Rangefinder System, improving your technique and expanding your capability.

The relationship will be as two ‘photographers’ rather than tutor and pupil. Brett is also there as a mentor: offering advice, tips, new technical perspectives and a new way to see, rather than how to look for photos.

Whether you are new to Leica cameras or are an experienced user, Brett will be able to meet your needs.

World | Assignment

I know that the only thing I really own is my photography.

The images are always there; a permanent record of where I go, what I’ve seen and who I have met. They are a way to share my passion for photography.

Alongside my wedding photography, I work on personal and commercial projects. I love the variety this gives me. Sometimes I travel on a commission, sometimes I just get up and go, sometimes I have a theme that I have to get out of my system.

On a trip with fellow Leica photographers, I fulfilled a long-held ambition to explore the 'lunar' landscape of Iceland. The respected photographic magazine, Leica Fotografie International, published my photo-essay – 'In the Wake of Apollo'.

Currently I am planning my next trip – a new adventure, new stories, new images.
