North East Wedding Photographer - About Us


Hi, my name is Stuart & I am the main photographer for KindnessPhotography which is based in the Whitley Bay area of Newcastle and the North East of England. I live with my wife, daughter and three lunatic dogs, with two more kids that have flown the nest, and now three grand kids and I'm still under 50, wow. I first got a camera around the age of ten years old, which was one of these I think and I just couldn't put it down. It must have cost my parents a small fortune in those film cartridges and one use flash bulbs which would be all used up in well a flash (pun intended)

What really got me going and passionate about photography however was when I got passed down my big brothers SLR camera which I still have to this day. A Practica MTLB SLR film camera with a removable flash and interchangeable lenses. Ohh wow what a camera that was, especially when I got an 80-200mm zoom lens for it and saw it's potential and what I was capable of capturing, with a bit of bird and wildlife photography and action photos of my friends on their BMX bikes and skate boards trying not to fall off while looking super cool.

My first introduction and step into the semi professional photography world was when my sister asked me to be the the main photographer at her wedding back in 2004, which also happened to be my first brush with a Canon DSLR camera. The camera was the Canon 300D 6.3-megapixel entry-level digital model shown below. This is where I really caught the bug for both wedding photography and also my love of Canon cameras which I have stuck with to this day and believe to be far superior to other manufacturers with maybe the exception of Nikon who are pretty much level with Canon.

Anyway you will be glad to know I have moved on and no longer use any of these for my photography, and now use my Canon EOS professional class digital cameras. Yes that was cameras as in more than one as you can never shoot a wedding or other important event without a backup camera hanging from your shoulder within easy reach at a moments notice. Canon cameras are extremely reliable but you cannot take that remote chance of it failing at the most crucial of moment's say when the bride and groom have their first kiss.
