(Photos above of me generally hanging out of windows & climbing things!)
My interest in photography started whilst looking at old family photos and was mesmerised by the time caught for generations to look back on. I quickly realised their importance and started taking my own pictures from an early age.
I still have boxes of prints of school friends, I would enthusiastically style in various outfits & theatrical attire, sourced from family wardrobes and the local charity shop!
I studied film, darkroom techniques and the history of Photography and got my first photography job as a wet printer for a portrait studio in the Chatham Historic Dockyard.
I'm so grateful to have started as a film photographer and loved spending hours in the darkroom dodging and burning and rocking trays.
I've been a professional Photographer for more than 15 years, specialising mainly in weddings portraiture & some commercial work too.
Photography has changed so much, with the introduction of digital technology and with hundreds of images now being able to be taken in one sitting, it's definitely given photography a new lease of life - allowing a story to be told beyond a few set images.
I really appreciate the importance of keeping up to date with an ever developing (no pun intended!) industry and have always been open to new ideas, styles and approaches.
I'm extremely passionate about what I do and am dedicated in providing images that you will be able to keep looking back on forever.
When I'm not taking photos, I love being outdoors, running in the mud, growing veggies, travelling & doing just about anything that involves food (although not all at the same time!).
