M Bedford Photography


Having always loved photography I feel now is the time to make my work a little more public for all to enjoy and if it puts a smile on someones face or inspires them to follow their dreams then all the better.
Having had very little training myself I am more inclined to call myself an artist rather than a professional photographer. I have every intention however to study in this area in the not to far future. I Love catching those beautiful moments that can and will never happen again just because every single day is different and brings new challenges and new beauty.
