WALES: First Official Fujifilm X-Photographer for Weddings
Kevin is a documentary wedding photographer and social family photographer based in Wiltshire, England. He was one of the first official Fujifilm X-Photographers in the United Kingdom and has been shooting with Fujifilm since the original X100 was launched in 2011.
Kevin is known across Europe for his unique photographic style and is a well-respected educator, speaking at conferences in the USA, Argentina, Japan and Europe. His wedding photography has recently been exhibited by Fujifilm in a month-long exhibition at Tokyo Square, Japan and the National Art Centre in Prague, Czech Republic.
Former national radio broadcaster Neale James photographs weddings in a documentary style. Eight hundred weddings later, his unexpected journey into the genre has seen him photograph weddings for an eclectic client list including broadcasters and politicians. He pioneered the Wedding Photofilm; a fusion of still photographs and documentary sound presented as short films which saw his client list stay loyal through one major world recession and the challenging times presented by Brexit. Latterly he has expanded his vision to embrace documentary filmmaking and is working on a series of films focusing on the works of respected photojournalists including Tom Stoddart and Magnum’s Mark Power and Olivia Arthur.

Their clear street influences combine seamlessly with their wedding work, injecting colour, humour, subtle characterisation and detailed, thoughtful layering within each frame.
