Craig Howkins Photography

I was born and raised in Northamptonshire in a quaint little town surrounded by lovely villages. Early on I have discovered my passion for photography as a creative way to express myself and share what I see with other people.
After studying Photography and Art and Design at the Northampton College, I worked as a Photographer for big British retail companies. However, this has not been fulfilling for me and I started to travel for several years.
I love looking at the photos I took during my travels: of the different countries I've visited and lived in, the cultures I got to know and of course of the people I have met on my journeys. This showed me the importance of photography as a way to preserve memories.
A common saying is “A photo can say more than a thousands words”. I think it can do much more. It can bring back memories of an event long gone and make you re-live this moment. Exactly this is what I want to achieve with my photography: By capturing special moments.

Winning photos

This moment was an absolute joy to capture. As the day was coming to an end I noticed the wedding venue still left out the chairs form the ceremony and the light shining from the pavilion just gave it this epic atmosphere. I knew then I had to get my bride and groom in the photo for this shot.

I love it when a moment just happens naturally. This shot was not staged. .As I was doing the bridal prep shoot, the bridesmaids wanted a quick look at the bride so they all just gathered around and made this shot work. That's what I call being in the right place at the right time.

I love it when I can capture moments that are so in the moment. It's a skill to keep your eyes open and getting that timing. This was my first wedding of the season and I'm stating it with a win. The couple just had a quick kiss as we was walking back to the farm and I got this lovely image go them both.

This photo was taken at Grendon Lakes in Northamptonshire. We had the perfect calm water and the bride and groom just embraced each other in this lovely moment which gives the image a hint of the silver screen.

83rd Collection

We was coming to the end of the night and I wanted to see what it would look like from the other side of the pond at Sheene Mill. So as I walked round in the muddy ground, I knew right away I had to photograph this. This was one of the last images of the day and I'm so glad I got wet and covered in mud because it was worth it in the end. It feels so great to fight for every image.
