My approach to photography is both contemporary and artistic.  I have been a professional photographer since 2002, having gained a City and Guilds in photography.  At college, in the pre-digital age, I specialised in black and white portraiture, and my work in the dark room gave me an understanding of light and tone, which I believe is the key element to a beautiful portrait. This is what I bring to my work.

Working in harmony with the location is a crucial element in achieving memorable lifestyle portraits. I can work from client's homes, favourite locations or business premises across London and the south-east. Alternatively, my 17th century cottage with its mature garden and stunning views never fails to provide inspiration for my images, whether they are family portraits, branding or product lifestyle portraiture.

 

With a large family, dogs and a busy household I know how to create the chilled and fun environment needed to best capture individual characters, resulting in beautiful, natural images.
