Hi, I’m Adam de-Ste-Croix, the photographer behind Sainte Croix Photography. I am based in Bournemouth, its new for me in 2022 and I’m loving the beach life on the doorstep as well as the easy access to the Jurassic Coast, New Forest and of course a the massive range of amazing food choices that Bournemouth offers. I am a dreamer with a vivid imagination and despite my school teacher saying this wasn’t good these traits have given me a rewarding career and my own business which I love!
Travel and adventure has always been a big passion in life from my earlier career as an Engineer travelling the world which later led to me exploring distant places as an adventurer carrying out self-planned expeditions; something I still make time for now.
Exploring new places led to me creating storytelling photography to send home, telling tales of distant places and interesting people. Wanting to show the true atmosphere of the moment taught me to observe life, people and to study light. I began all this in the 90’s, before digital, so learned photography the hard way! I learnt the importance of capturing and connecting moments to create photographic stories; and also that a friendly smile not only gets the shot but makes new friends. This all adds up to how I have created emotive storytelling wedding photography.
I photograph weddings and events far and wide, and the travels adventures haven’t stopped either. Each year (pandemic pending!) I take a month out to roam around Europe in my self-built adventure van! I also do photography training, talks for Sony at professional photography conferences and run groups of over 1300 professional photographers.
I’ve now added rock climbing to the list so will be looking to incorporate this into travels and maybe photography. Any rock climbers getting married? Let’s do your wedding photography on a real high, or as Dr Seuss would say, let’s move mountains!
