From being given my first camera at the age of 17 I have always had photography on my mind, and a camera stuck to my face. Having worked in the advertising, marketing, tourism and media fields I understand the importance of good images.
With the opportunity to explore new career horizons I decided to formalise my interest in photography, improve my technical abilities, investigate new products and gain inspiration by backing my creativity and skills with an Art degree.
I now work freelance offering commercial photography ranging from portraiture and product shots; architectural studies and editorial; through to social events and PR. My passion is to tell the story of your business through creative images that mean your customers cannot wait to buy from you.
I enjoy sharing my skills, knowledge and passion through 1:1 training and when I'm not working on commissions I enjoy continuing my personal projects.
