Zenfolio | Wayne Aspley Wedding & Portrait Photography, Swadlincote Derbyshire | About

Inspired by perfection, driven by passion...


Married with three sons and still have my own hair. Well some of it, OK very little. Photography for me is a way of life. It has never been about money, always the art comes first. I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. My journey started back in the days of working for a newspaper within Tamworth and Burton Upon Trent. Doing the jobs none of the other reporters or photographers wanted. Normally late nights and early mornings, covering clubs and pubs, interviewing "B" list celebs etc. This contributed to an amazing social life with so many great times going down in colour and black and white.


Based in Derbyshire, East Midlands and covering the whole of the UK and overseas, shooting ceremonies from Swadlincote to Stuttgart in Germany. I would like to think at my age my photography is a little more sedate, but my passion for wildlife to weddings, landscape and portrait photography takes me all over the UK and abroad. It can be non-stop and pretty hectic. If truth be told, I wouldn't have it any other way.


Sadly I have an addiction to very expensive toys. Photography is not a cheap profession I can tell you that. That is unless my wife is reading this! Let no one say to you that gear does not matter. Believe me, it does. Yes having the photography skills to pull off great shots consistently goes a long way. I'd like to think that is what separates me from the local natives. I shoot with two bodies, both Sony full frame cameras, the A7rii and the A7riii. Both 42MP. I honestly think there is no better camera for wedding photography and portraiture. The detail and depth are pretty special, I have clients who say "it see's into their soul". Most of my glass is German Zeiss or G Master by Sony and the combination of German and Sony engineering with the technology of the Sony camera system... Well, seeing is believing.


If you want to know more and have an informal chat over a coffee? Feel free to get me through my contact section and I look forward to hearing about your plans.
