a little about me and my work

I live in Newton Abbot, South Devon and love taking photos, especially using natural light and on location. 
I particularly enjoy documentary, fashion and lifestyle photography. I like to think I'm friendly, relaxed, flexible and professional. Its really important to me that clients  feel comfortable, that I show sensitivity and that we are able to work together to achieve the best results possible. 


So many people have beautiful and exciting products and services, which deserve to be shown off and promoted  to their full potential. I really enjoy working with individuals and businesses to help bring their brands to life, through eye catching, high quality images. 

Clients have full use of all edited  photos, whether to use for marketing, social media, website presence or for print and magazines. To date I have worked  on  stylised model shoots, photographing products, collections, business  premises, staff or tell a story, documentary style on location or at events.  My photography has been featured in websites, brochures, local and national magazines including OK Magazine, The Guardian, Landrover Monthly, Exeter Living and Devon Life.

Recent clients include: Hairdressers, Jewellery Designers, Brewery, Architects, Restaurant Owners, Estate Agents, Food Manufacturers,  Charities, and Schools.

If you have a specific project or would like to update your image library then please contact me. 

Lifestyle  and  Portraits

My approach to portrait photography is to be relaxed and informal. I love all types of lifestyle photography from street style photography to family sessions. Having three children, I'm used to constantly trying to capture them being themselves, showing their personalities, with photos I will keep and tresure forever. I love taking photos on location with natural light, ideally late afternoon or early evening.  There are some beautiful places in Devon and beyond - the moors, beaches, forests which provide a stunning backdrop to a shoot. I offer packages, with digital images and online gallery for prints.  If you are interested in finding out more then please contact me.

To me, photography is an art of observation.....I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
