Hi I am Damien and I am the photographer behind what is Bonafide images. I have a massive passion for photography from the days I spent at college learning the art of photography with a film camera this gave me the knowledge of the workings and what is needed to create a good image great however due to being 17 at the time and the real world was calling I had to leave college and get a ‘proper job’ but fast forward 10 years and I picked up a digital camera then all the passion came flooding back from this point I studied all types of photography portrait, automotive, pet and many more you name it I have probably shot it at some point. Some photographers tend to stay in a niche where as I like to try everything and merge the different techniques together, after all if you can capture a car traveling at 100+ mph a child running is well child’s play.
Through my career as a photographer I have built an excellent client base of happy couples, happy families and cute pets. but along with this I have had various publications in magazines, internet blogs, commercial literature for multimillion pound companies and even the odd image In the house of commons parliamentary review.
I have developed a style which is crisp, clean and contemporary which I put across in my pictures after all we want our memories of our big day to be colorful vibrant and stick in our memories as I capture the moment (as cheesy as it sounds but that’s what I am commended on and it works). Any photographer can stage a bride and groom for a picture but it takes Jedi reflexes to capture those true special moments and emotions which cannot be staged and need to be captured in an instant without warning be it the moment the groom sees the bride for the first time or the moment uncle Dave is throwing shapes at the evening wedding reception these are all memories that live with us forever and I as a photographer tend to capture for you .
