How did Peacock Obscura get started and how long has the business been going?

After moving to the Midlands to marry my wife Sally I decided to relaunch as a family company called Peacock Pix. We have been up and running as a team for 18months.

Had you always wanted to be a photographer? Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture and what it was of?

Photography has been one of my greatest loves since I was given a Box Brownie as a child of 8. My first photographs were of our pet dog, a collie called Bess. Many thousands of photographs down the road I still spend a great deal of my life looking for new angles and different ways to capture wonderful new images.

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

We cover a 50mile radius of Derby and Halifax in our inclusive packages and Nationwide on a 40p per mile mileage rate and accommodation if necessary basis.

What do you think sets Peacock Obscura apart from other wedding photographers?

My passion and my eye – I’m not saying others don’t have passion, but for me it’s more than just a job; I have a need to do the best I can and create a unique record for each couple. My wife says I suffer from OCD – Obsessive Camera Disorder.
I create images for couples in love; great wedding photography tells stories, capturing the unique personality and intimate moments of a wedding. I focus on the relationships between people, capturing their expressions and emotions, often taking the picture without anyone knowing. I try to document every key moment, from the preparation through to the first dance. I believe every couple has a vision of what they want their wedding day to look like and I believe my job is to realise that vision.
