A few words about me …

Hi, my name is Steve Hughes and I’m the owner and full-time freelance photographer in chief here at Retina Photography. I specialise in commercial and small business photography for use in a wide spectrum of marketing material. To see examples of my work and rates, use the main menu in the top half of the screen.

I’m happily married with a grown up daughter, no strong political or religious leanings, but a keen sense of the ridiculous. Let’s face it, if this is all there is, it must be a joke, right? I love a good curry, Vindaloo is preferred, and I’m somewhat partial to the occasional glass of Irish Whiskey.

This site also includes a personal project area called ‘Weekend Passions’. This is what keeps me sane and shooting what I love to photograph most; people. It never ceases to amaze me the ‘secret lives’ that people lead. For some, their hobbies are their private world; for others it’s a shared experience. I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to be part of the contributors’ personal lives. Go and have a look, as there’s something for everyone. If you would like to take part, feel free to give me a shout.

If you fancy a chat about your photography requirements, give me a call on my mobile phone (O79O7 785436). The ‘get in touch’ button will take you to the usual ‘Contact me’ type of page, or you can choose one of the social media options on the right under the picture of yours truly.

I look forward to working with you and helping you, and your business, look good. I’ll probably have to restrict that to photography though!

Anyway, enough about me. What have YOU got to say for yourself.

Cheers all.
