It's all about me....

.......well, this part is anyway. I won't waffle on too long nor will I attempt to give you my life story,  but hopefully you will feel as if you know at least a little bit about me after reading this page.

As you have probably already gathered from my unique and imaginatively named business; my name is Alan Howe and yes... I'm a photographer specialising in wedding and portrait photography in Peterborough and surrounding areas.  I currently live in the quiet little town of Crowland with my beautiful wife and daughter.

I am still clinging on to my thirties as I write this, however, I'm now on the look out for a sports car in preparation for my mid life crisis.

I have enjoyed photography ever since my Grandad bought me my first camera in the 80's, back in the days when you had to wait about a month to see your pictures.  Unfortunately I do have to admit that I was one of those annoying people that insisted on showing these pictures to anyone who unwittingly became my captive audience.

To put it simply, I love photography!  There is nothing like the feeling of capturing that special moment and creating a memory that will last forever, but most of all, seeing the reactions of your clients and knowing that you have touched their hearts.  

In my spare time I also have a passion for street, wildlife and landscape photography, as well as photographing my beautiful wife and daughter.  You can see some of these photographs via the Instagram feed below.  

Please also follow me on Instagram and Facebook to see my recent work and hear about any promotions or competitions. 

My photography equipment - for those that are interested..... 

For my professional assignments I am predominantly a Canon user.  I currently use the following equipment: 

  • Two full frame professional grade cameras: Canon 5D MK III and Canon 5D MK II 
  • Canon 70D crop sensor camera. This is predominantly used as my spare 
  • Canon 70-200mm 2.8 L IS USM II Lens  - This lens is regarded as one of Canon's finest professional lenses
  • Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 Di VC USD Lens
  • Two Canon 430EX III Speedlites

However my 'everyday' camera is a Panasonic Lumix GX8 and is usually with me at all times with the hope that when the time comes I won't miss out on getting that once in a life time shot.  Whether it's a UFO hovering over Peterborough Cathedral 'Independence Day' style or the Royal Family performing River Dance in Trafalgar Square, I want it on camera!

Hobbies & Interests

  • I absolutely love going to the cinema; have done since I saw my first film, ET
  • I play the guitar having learnt to play classical guitar way back when I was 10 years old
  • Cooking.... I love it, almost as much as I love eating the food afterwards.  My wife also loves that I cook
  • Watching box sets and eating junk.  I mean who doesn't enjoy Walking Dead with a bucket full of crisps and chocolate? 

A few random facts about me

  • Ironically, I now can't stand the film ET
  • I once narrowly missed falling on and probably crushing to death Professor Stephen Hawking
  • I've jumped out of an aeroplane 
  • My favourite colour is purple

"We arranged a family photo shoot with Alan as we wanted some nice pictures of our 9 month old daughter, Chloe. We weren't very specific about what we wanted, but Alan made some great suggestions for location and the types of shots he could take, and the final photos gave us a perfect selection of natural shots and more posed family portraits - we were really happy with them! Alan was very professional and enthusiastic, and made us feel at ease. His service was efficient and we felt he offered great value for money, we would definitely recommend him."
