About me

Self Portrait
Self Portrait

I am a friendly and approachable female photographer from Hertfordshire.

I discovered a skill and a love of location portraiture early on in my learning process with photography. I have always loved to use natural light, and natural surroundings to capture beautiful photographs of people, be it individual portraits or families.  I also love studio portraiture where 100% control of the environment and lighting is possible and some very creative images can be made.

Working with my Husband (www.dancesoundsdisco.co.uk) I am often asked to photograph parties and enjoy capturing both reportage style photographs and ad-hoc group shots during birthday parties and other celebrations.

However I also love to push myself into new areas, try new techniques and improve my skills at all times, in continued professional development.

I have a love of dance and sometimes work on projects that enable me to combine this with photography. This has given me the unique ability to capture those split second moments of dynamic movement and anticipate just when to click that shutter button, and this also spills over into capturing portraits of children, who can be just as challenging, if not more so than a dancer as they are less predictable!

As well as holding a licentiate with the National Photographic Society I am a moderator on one of the UK’s largest photography forums (Photography-forum.org) I was chosen for this role for my attitude, level headedness and ability to help others.

Another way I keep up to date and always strive to learn new skills is through creative photoshoots, these are creative collaborations with other photographers, models, make up artists and studios and are done (for now at least) entirely for my own benefit and to increase all our portfolios. I simply love the chance to try out new techniques which also trickles back in to my standard work and keeps me on my toes and never complacent.

To ensure anyone I work with are protected for whatever unforeseen circumstance may come along I am fully insured (for both public liability and professional indemnity) and carry Nikon professional specification photographic equipment together with a full backup camera system.
