Hello, I’m Dave Ray

I am a wedding, civil partnership and portrait photography with many years experience in the industry. I work with my clients to ensure that their experience of being photographed is right for them.

I ensure that studio sessions are laid back and informal because the best photographs of you will be when you’re looking relaxed, not when you’re sitting at a silly angle with a posed smile on your face. If they don’t know, that means we never told anyone told anyone.


I don’t charge for studio time for portraits and there is no obligation for you to buy any photos afterwards. A full price list of the most popular print and framing options are below.

If you have something a little different in mind we can discuss other printing and framing options while reviewing your photos after the session. But then fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an ‘unknown entry event’?They know? If they don’t know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.


Born in Finland

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder.


Learnt photography

The avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don’t know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived.


Live on a farm

How it’s possible, how it’s done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does.

My trip to Scotland

I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That’s Cesar’s world, and if you’re not willing to play by his rules, then you’re gonna have to pay the price.
