Welcome to my world. I’m a Derbyshire based photographer, specialising in documentary wedding photography and lifestyle portrait photography. Whilst much of my work is commissioned in the Derbyshire region, my services are available across the UK and beyond.
So who is Dennis Stanley? I’m a father to four wonderful children; husband to my beautiful wife Chrissie, whose support and belief, has enabled me to turn a dream into reality by launching my own photography business.
Why photography? For longer than I can remember, photography has been my creative release; documenting my sporting endeavors, my travels and creating a photographic legacy of my children’s lives. In recent years my camera has become an extension of me. The opportunities for capturing beautiful imagery using natural lighting is endless as we go about our everyday activities. Whether I’m shooting a wedding, portraits or children, my approach is to retain the authenticity of the occasion and capture the real essence of a person’s character. To achieve this level of “insight” requires that I get to know my clients. Question: Would you prefer a stranger to shoot your wedding or portrait? Or would you much prefer for the person behind the camera to know something of your story and understand what you’re looking for from your imagery?
I’m a sociable person by nature; my journey through life has blessed me with many experiences. These experiences have made me who I am and have given me a personal perspective that’s unique to me. To quote a phrase “I was born an original and hope to die an original”. My talent for photography was nature’s gift to me and the older I get, the more I appreciate that gift. I’d like to share that gift with you.
