About Joss Widdowson
I've been in love with photography for around for over a decade. It started in the Devon countryside at The Dartington College of Arts, a 500 student bubble of the weird and wonderful on a very pretty hill near Totnes. I spent an entire loan instalment on my first DSLR camera and was hooked straight away. Quickly I became "that guy with a camera" who would photograph anything you wanted for 20 quid, or maybe just a bottle of wine. I'd be called on to photograph music, dance, theatre and visual art installations many and varied. I loved it!
Photography became a part of my degree, contributing to me receiving a first for my bachelor's in Music with Visual Arts Practices. As part of my minor I completed a series of night time shots.
I spent 10 weeks in Ghana training and performing with a traditional drumming and dance troupe. While over there I wanted to use my camera to capture the vitality and energy of the music and life all around me. It taught me a lot about shooting action, placing myself in the right spot to capture a special moment. Shooting weddings is the same thrill for me. I'd like to capture the vitality and energy of your special day.
For a year and a half I lived in New Zealand, a land so beautiful that you can pretty much just hold your camera up and capture something like this...
Shooting weddings, I am living the dream. It chimes with my urge to travel. I meet many interesting people, all determined to do something amazing and worthwhile. It's a wonderful thing to immerse yourself in a new city, just as it's a wonderful thing to immerse yourself in a wedding, to find it's character, and to capture it in a photograph.
I'm based in York but I'm happy to travel across the UK and beyond so if you like my style, just click 'contact' at the top of the page.
I love people, and I love to see people happy. Wedding photography just makes sense for me.
