Hi, I'm Roderick Alan but everyone just calls me Rod apart from some relatives..
I know it's a cliche to read about how a photographer loves their job but I used to sit in an office with a phone strapped to my head, trust me, I bloody love my job!
I'm now in my thirties and whilst it seems to have gone in a flash, I've done and experienced so much and have been lucky enough to meet the love of my life along the way who's agreed to marry me! Her name is Justyne. We have a couple of Pugs too. They're bloody awesome.
I am a people person at heart. I love having a laugh and a joke with people and getting to know their stories. I think that's the most important quality in my photography. I put people at ease and then they're just themselves which translates into beautiful photographs.
All that said, I am a bit of a geek - I adore Star Wars, I have Lego which isn't from when I was a kid and I even stuck a transformers badge on the back of my Pickup Truck! I promise you it's WAY cooler than it sounds having typed that out...
If you're considering having me be your photographer I'd absolutely bloody love it!
