Graeme Sweeney, the founder of Marine Images, is an internationally accredited professional photographer with over 20 years experience, specialising in the marine sports sectors, Press and Event photography.
He has a unique and intimate perspective in this field having starting his working career as a boat builder and Rigger, he then spent over 10 years working professionally at sea around the World. Graeme has a keen interest and respect for the sea, sailing vessels, Racing Powerboats, Ships and all things maritime.
Although he specialises in Marine sports events, from local East Coast Regatta's to International offshore events, Graeme has also covered for the UK Press, numerous International boat shows, offshore powerboat races including the Annual Bahamas Atlantis Super Boat Challenge and The Round Britain Powerboat Race 2008, various National & World Championship sailing events including The Endeavour Champion of Champions Trophy 3 years running and many other maritime and sporting events.
His studio work ranges from general consumer products and product shoots for some of the UK's top specialist marine engineers, brochures, catalogues & pamphlets, Arts & Crafts company ReScape's handmade designer products from sustainable materials and location photography for various outdoor Sports clothing manufacturers.
Recently, Graeme spent time as Picture Editor at Yachting Press Ltd for Yachts and Yachting Magazine which offered a great insight into what the magazine industry, its advertisers and sponsors required from Marine sports photography. Seeing a gap in that market, Graeme was inspired to launch MarineImages.co.uk, so as to offer a unique, specialist Press and Events Photography service and, most importantly, to get the right images to the client, their customers and their target marketplace.
