Hey, I’m Adam Lowndes. A Wedding Photographer from Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire where I live with my partner and our miniature dachshund.
I’m not a certified giant but will make most people look small at 6 foot 7.
I’m super energetic and positive
almost all of the time.
I love a good book and can watch films back to back all day long.
I trained to be a Video Game Designer but did not relish the thought of years sat in a chair.
Things I Love
Culture ~ pizza ~ dogs ~ Back to the Future ~ rum ~ Sufjan Stevens ~ travelling ~ retro video games ~ time well spent ~ cooking ~ Mary Poppins ~ halloumi ~ live music ~ Polaroid/Instax cameras ~ being outdoors ~ Stranger Things ~ up-cycling ~ oatcakes ~ singing in my car ~ storytelling podcasts ~ churros ~ minimalism ~ chopping firewood
As a teenager I spent many hours watching romantic cinema including Garden State, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Cinema Paradiso to name a few. Although my mind has been heavily corrupted by the amount of Zach Braff I have endured, I have always been a hopeless romantic at heart.
In a somewhat crazy moment, I decided to drive almost 2 hours to meet a girl I hardly knew. Several incredible years later we now share a miniature dachshund (sausage dog) and a home together
I think things are going pretty well.
My A Team
I learnt from a young age that no man is an island. In order for us to be the best version of ourselves we need people around us to pick us up, dust us off and send us flying back out the door into that crazy world. Before anyone’s knickers get in a twist, this is just a small selection of my awesome family, life coaches and friends.
I’ve always been a creative person. On my 9th birthday I received my first camera. I had no idea this was the start of a love affair that would go on to become a lifelong passion. In my teenage years I was embedded in the local music and skateboard scene. This served as a great source of imagery and inspiration for my work, building a foundation to practice my art regularly.
In 2009 I had an amazing opportunity to go to America and work for the whole Summer as a Photographer at a Jewish sports camp. I went with an ego so big that I was surprised it even fit on the plane. Needless to say I came back firmly in my place having learnt more about myself and photography in 10 weeks than I had in the previous 10 years.
The following year my sister asked me to take the photographs at her wedding. I recruited two friends to share the load of the day and we formed the first and only photography trio I have ever seen at a wedding. The photographs were a massive success and the wedding photography bug had firmly bitten me.
Fast forward to present day and I’m now a full-time wedding photographer shooting weddings all over the UK. To say I’m happy with the way my life has panned out is an understatement. Although I’ve come this far I’ve never lost touch with my original passion for photography and still take photographs for fun. Take a look at my personal portfolio below.
