A note from the photographer

Hey, thank you for your interest in First Drop Photography.

Since you are visiting this site then I am pleased to say that we have something in common… our love for UK theme parks and attractions! For me, the sector provides a magical escape from everyday life, and I enjoy visiting them.

For many years I have had a keen interest in the industry, even selecting it for study in my undergraduate degree by focusing on Business Management and Tourism Management. In the years since I have gone on to work in education as a fully qualified teacher and I have worked on projects focusing on (and involving the industry) as I share my passion with younger generations. Over the past few years, it has also been such a pleasure to work in the industry to discover what it means to provide memories for the guests visiting!

Today, in addition to the above, I am now pleased to offer my creativity to others through my imagery as I capture the best of UK theme parks and attractions!

I look forward to your feedback and hope that I may be able to help you out on your next project, but should you not find the answer to your question then just get in touch!

All the best,


How I capture the best of parks and attractions

Theme Park photography can be a crowded market; therefore it is important to stand out from the crowd and get noticed!

When shooting, I always try to look for that unique shot by considering the angle and depth. It is easy to point and shoot but does the shot really create excitement?

Sometimes it does, but more are looking to engage in alternative and distinctive content.

Thankfully, my current setup with a mirrorless Olympus camera that is 34% smaller, and 36% lighter than conventional SLRs, allows me to obtain those unique shots without the need for obtrusive lenses, enabling me to shoot high and low.

The super large electronic viewfinder also lets me see the results of the creative settings directly in the EVF, or for harder obtained shots, the imagery is displayed on a ‘vari-angle’ LCD display.

Post-production, I can edit images using market-leading software to ensure the images are exactly right, therefore creating the perfect image for your social media or marketing campaign.
