Having always, always been interested in photography I find it amazing that I have turned a passion into my every day life. After studying at Leeds University and London College of Communication, I moved to Paris where I lived for four very happy years. I worked for the company Better Travel Photos were I endlessly wandered the streets of Paris either giving photo tours or creating portraits.
In April 2013 a friend asked me to photograph her wedding, a terrifying and thrilling experience. With my experience of street photography and portraiture I had developed more of a reportage or photojournalistic style, never stopping people and asking them to pose but anticipating a photograph and capturing those fleeting & spontaneous moments.
I am now currently based in London but I am often found in the north of England where I grew up. I I am most happy here, surrounded by the wonderful hills of the Lake District with my loving dogs Ilika, Tara & Dora. Paris is another city that will always have a piece of my heart and I still take on commissions as it couldn’t be easier to hop on the Eurostar. You can see my portfolio of some of my portraits in Paris!
As well as doing individual portraits and weddings I have worked for companies including Better Travel Photos, Fortnum and Mason, UNESCO, Asian Development Bank, Christies, Cumbria Tourism, Hobbs, Linley, Waitrose, Country Life, The Field and The Worlds Original Marmalade festival. I have also photographed at events with guests such as HRH The Prince of Wales.
