.......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 family 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.
I consider myself to be unique in relation to other photographers in Peterborough due to the following:
Here are a few photographs of me at work on a recent family portrait shoot in December. And yes... it was very cold!

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.
My photography equipment - for those that are interested.....
I use only professional Canon cameras and lenses for paid assignments such as weddings, portrait sessions and commercial events.
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!
