A little bit about me
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. Aaron Siskind
Serving Sussex in the regions of Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne I am a Photographer and Artist; husband to an amazing wife and father to two wonderful, delightful pains in the bottom.
Starting out as a portrait artist I always used my camera for reference and it was through the mid-noughties that Photography became my main passion. People have always been the main subject of my work, right from the beginning and still is from my portrait work to my weddings and my speciality - the intricate multi-image compositions that have recently brought me a large degree of professional recognition.
Whenever possible, with weddings and large shoots, I try and shoot with my wife who is my assistant; second-shooter; VAL (Voice Activated Lightstand) and Critic. She allows me to focus on getting the best shot possible whilst organising people, keeping me calm and focussed and allowing us to move with efficiency and accuracy letting you make the best of your special day.
I pride myself on my friendly and professional service and will strive to do the very best for you I can.
Proud member of the Guild Of Photographers and Volunteer Photographer for the charity 'Remember My Baby' and recently awarded Image of the Year (Creative and Digital Art Category) and Overall Image Of The Year (Member's choice) by the Guild Of Photographers.
We chose Simon and Abi Newbury to take our Wedding photographs because with their artistic background and positive, professional nature - we knew we would be in good hands and get fabulous photographs. The final photos turned out so great that in fact, they even exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the results!
We wanted to achieve mainly candid shots throughout the day, and Simon and Abi really listened and produced exactly what we wanted. They were absolutely brilliant. Their fun and positive attitude made the difficult photographs (e.g. trying to get the whole wedding party together) enjoyable. They also did something we really didn't expect - in the morning they helped out whilst I was getting ready and even entertained the kids, all the while capturing the most beautiful pictures. Several of them are just outstanding and we will treasure them forever!
Unfortunately it rained on our Wedding day and we were worried that we wouldn't get any nice outdoor shots - but Simon and Abi proved us wrong! They worked wonders with the lighting, positioning, and editing - to make even our very grey day look atmospheric, romantic and bright. They also managed to capture peoples expressions in the most flattering way, and the clarity of the photos is no less than spectacular.
Thank you Simon and Abi for capturing such meaningful images for us and our family, and for going the extra mile to make our day and photographs truly emotional and special. My husband and I are so thrilled with the finished results, and we will be recommending you to all our friends and family.Evelyn Garnett

Simon is, quite simply, an outstanding photographer. Not only that, but he's a very genuine, kind guy who will always go the extra mile. Take a look at some of the extraordinary photographs he has taken in his portfolio and marvel at his creative genius.Alastair Hazell
