Speakers 2015: Ed Peers

I’m a destination wedding photographer based just outside of London, UK.

I’m a husband and a father and am passionate about documenting life with my camera and telling a story through a photograph. For
the last four years I’ve photographed weddings Worldwide with most weddings taking me outside of the UK. Before wedding photography
I dreamt of becoming a pilot and I went as far as completing a PhD before I realised my real passion was travelling with my camera and documenting real life. Since photographing my first wedding I’ve never looked back. Every wedding is an adventure and I can never wait to photograph the next…

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.”

– Henri Cartier Bresson
The key to creativity is…

To stay inspired, keep an open mind, avoid getting too busy and to create some space to see, experience and reflect.

Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work?

Travel and exploring the natural world, meeting new people, good design, music and family.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given and what is the best advice you would give to someone just starting out?

It’s become a cliche, but trusting (and developing) your own vision has always been key for me and the advice that I would give people starting out. It’s all about doing what you love, doing it well, and then connecting with people who love what you do.
