My name is Stuart Deal and I have been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. Ever since I received my first SLR camera for my 12th birthday I have been hooked on the magic of photography. Four years later I photographed my first wedding and have since spent many years working as a wedding and portrait photographer as well taking photographs for my own pleasure. In fact, it was while I was living and travelling abroad – taking photographs wherever I went – that I decided to turn professional on my return to the UK.
In the late 90s I decided to ‘go digital’ and now use the latest Canon EOS 5d Mark 2 SLR (single lens reflex) camera. This allows me to create the highest quality images -but at a price that is affordable to my customers (I can take hundred of photos, then edit them down to a select few, as well as being able to send / provide images electronically).
I learn something new about photography every day and strive to create the most beautiful images I can, using the skills, light, locations and situations that are available to me. I live with my girlfriend Emma in the cathedral city of Canterbury and often work from home where I have a fully equipped portrait studio.
I am a qualified photographer with the British Institute of Professional Photography.
Thank you for helping make our Wedding day the most memorable and enjoyable of our lives.The photos are brilliant and we couldn’t have wished for a nicer reminder of the day. The photographs were brilliant. We have recommended you to our best friends.
