Growing up with a strong interest in the arts and literature, I was always intrigued with image-making. Photography seduced me after my fine art painting degree early in my career. I think it was the gadgets… photographers need lots of gadgets. My first job was photographing for a fine art auctioneers, and then I picked up the knowledge working for photography magazines and book publishers. Since then I have pursued my own photography career and have been shooting interiors, furniture, decor, people and editorial lifestyle photography. And of course, Weddings!
I find this work extremely satisfying in that it allows me to work in many contexts and to use a variety of skills. I have crafted and honed my way of working over the years. I photographed still life subjects for many years and decided that I needed to show people in my work, so I began shooting weddings and editorial features. My eye for detail was refined by the different challenges which these events posed, totally different from the still life discipline which I had practiced before.
Many my commercial clients are interior & kitchen designers, homeware companies, or artisans who require really great imagery to help drive their businesses forward. I usually work with a stylist to help tell the story around the imagery. My work has featured in many magazines, 25 Beautiful Homes, House & Garden, Homes & Gardens, House Beautiful, Elle Decoration, Real Homes, Bath Life.
