Wedding Photography by Gordon Baxter
The name ‘Gordon Baxter’ means a passionate wedding photographer. Capturing smile and beauty that surrounds me I was always fascinated by photography. Since I had my first camera from my mum and dad, this has been my hobby. As a wedding photographer I know that a well captured moment in time will be a memory that is going to last forever.
I learned the basics of composition and proofing as an assistant in a wedding photography dark room. It gave me the experience that a lot of starting photographers do not have. Since then, I have spent every free minute developing my skills and style. Fast forward a few years later, my first job involved working in a marketing department. Designing posters, leaflets and other advertising products it was where I got to know a very powerful photo editing software – Adobe Photoshop. As technology progressed, I owned a few compact cameras and a smart phone 🙂 Let’s face it, we all take pictures these days. But does this make us all photographers? Sure! Why not? But ask yourself this question. Do you really want Uncle Jim to be responsible for your wedding photos?
History of Gordon Baxter Photography
Pursuing my passion in 2014 I decided that I would like to turn my hobby into an official business. I bought my first professional DSLR camera. I must admit, it felt like I was holding my first camera for the first time again! I enrolled on a digital photography course at Image Academy Online to quickly update my photography skills and broaden my knowledge. I decided that wedding photography would be the best choice for me. After shooting a couple of weddings for my friends, I noticed how many things I was able to photograph on just one Wedding. From portraits and group photos to the popular reportage style wedding. Combining my photo skills and knowledge of Photoshop makes my business stand out. I keep the natural style of the wedding and still offer more value for money.
I Never put my camera down. On my journeys to different places in the UK and abroad I always take my camera to keep my memories. On one of those occasions I asked my fiancée to marry me 🙂 Oh yes, I did take the picture of that special moment as well. Actually I took three. That image in many years, will keep the memory of that moment as fresh as it is today. I hope this will help you decide that what I do as a wedding photographer is what you are looking for. If you are interested, contact me and we can arrange a friendly meeting. Discussion about what you would like from your photographer is the basic of great wedding photography.
