Creative Capture Images is a Photography business run by Stephen Parker, located on the shores of ullswater in the beautiful Lake District

I discovered my passion for photography back in 1985 when I was just 10 years old. This was when I first visited the beautiful Lake District with my family and took my first Landscape photograph using a 35mm SLR film camera. I then got really serious about photography when I was 16 when I was at college studying Photography.

I continue to work in photography. Then, with the evolution of the DSLR my passion exploded and thats where my technical capability helped, especially with the ability to now post process via applications and software as opposed to in the darkroom with film.

My images are all about the outside world which, unsurprisingly has driven my main areas of focus to Landscape, Seascape, Cityscape and Architecture photography. I just love travelling with my camera and exploring new places. I spend a lot of what spare time I have travelling the UK visiting many outstanding locations from the Cornwall and Devonshire coasts up to the Outer Hebrides and everywhere in between. Having spent most of my life living in Hampshire a lot of my early photography was based around Devon and Cornwall and the surrounding counties. I used to have to travel for hours in the car to get to the Lake District and did so, many times with my wife Sarah. We soon realised we were spending a lot of our time in the Lakes and a lot of our money getting there and being there so we decided to move there, Watermillock in fact, right on the shore of our favourite Lake, Ullswater. I can hear many of you now saying it’s not a lake but, I want to keep this simple.

So, I now have a wife a Percy pup a Pindie cat and a Boris cat but he passed recently bless him. We have all settled in the Lakes where we spend a lot of our time walking and photographing the wonderful Landscapes that are now on our doorstep. 

The added bonus of living here is that I now get to photograph some other areas of outstanding beauty that are more local, such as the Northumberland Coastline, The Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and, and, and..... Not to mention the likes of the magnificent Glencoe and the Isle of Skye. I now have lots more places to explore in order to develop as a photographer.
