ABOUT ME

Greetings. I'm delighted you decided to delve further to find out more about who I am and how our paths might cross. Photography has been an exciting and transformative venture in my life. I hope to share some of the joy it brings me by working with you to create beautiful and memorable images but also to make a personal connection that enhances the experience for both of us. It is really important for me to understand what makes a subject really special, whether that is a person who's sitting for a portrait or artefacts that have meaning to someone or a scene that is significant in some way. A connection is important to capture what really matters through the glass eye of a lens. Being engaged deeply in trying to see the extraordinary in the ordinary is what makes photography such a vibrant and uniquely living art form. In the right hands a camera can do so much more than just reproduce what is there. It creates a memorable experience that can be shared over and over again. 

So who am I? I am a mother, a wife, a sociologist, an avid baker and crochet practitioner, and a cycling enthusiast. In the past my roles have included researcher, teacher, journalist, a PA in mental health and even television presenter. Yes, I know it sounds like I have a monkey brain because I jump from one thing to the next but I like to try different things and have a curious soul. This is why I think you'll find working with me fun as well as fulfilling. 

“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.”
