About Me

I’m Clive Blair, a wedding photographer Birmingham born and bred

I first began as a wedding photographer in Birmingham back in 1987, making me one of the most experienced wedding photographers in the region. Since then I’ve covered many, if not all types of wedding ceremonies. These have ranged from the small intimate group in a local register office to several hundreds of guests in a cathedral.

Because I’m based in the West Midlands, Birmingham gives me a central location to cover weddings in all the Midlands area, nationally and even abroad.

Focus on Quality

I’ve even been privileged to shoot on more than one occasion in places such as Ireland, Mexico and the Caribbean.

I like to work in a natural, unobtrusive reportage manner. This means you can enjoy your day without me asking you to pose for endless photographs. I’d much rather capture your inner spirit and personality instead of me forcing you to pose in an unatural manner.

I’m sure you’re not interested in me going on about exactly what cameras etc. I use. I firmly believe that any wedding photographer should concentrate on the photographic image rather than the equipment used.

So I won’t bore you with how as a documentary wedding photographer I shoot with Camera “X” that has “Y” megapixels and can shoot “Z” number of images without you being aware. I say, “Who cares? Can you take an image that touches the heart? If so, equipment doesn’t matter.”

I’ve won a few awards over the years. These include being the “Wedding Photographger of the Year” for two years in a row. But of late, I’m concentrating on giving you the benefit of my extensive years of experience in the wedding industry, which many can’t offer. See my latest here.

That’s why I’m an active member of both the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) and The Master Photographers’ Association (MPA).

So rather than take over the day with endless group photographs, I want you to enjoy your family and friend’s company as much as possible.

This allows me to blend into the background to capture those precious unguarded moments that too often go unnoticed.

It goes without saying, I am fully insured both for professional indemnity and public liability and I always have back-up equipment with me.
