My first camera was gifted to me when I was 7 years old & photography has been a huge part of my life since. After my son Danny was born in 2001 when I was 18, I enrolled on a 2-year college course in Fine Art which led to earn me a place at my first-choice University. Since graduating in 2007 with a BA (Hons) Photography, I worked at ASOS.com for 2 years managing the Stills Studio, from where I was headhunted by Figleaves.com for Photography Studio Manager. Due to the high demand for my photography, I embraced the freelance world full-time in September 2010. I currently live in London with Danny, now 12, & travel internationally for work.
My client list includes ASOS, BBC, Bill Skinner, Charlie Brear, Coast, Figleaves, Glasses Direct, Hearst, Sweaty Betty, Tesco & Vidal Sassoon. I've had my photography published in magazines worldwide including Betty, Cosmopolitan, Elle UK, Hitched, Time Out & Zest & have photographed personalities including Dame Kelly Holmes, Antony Gormley, Dita Von Teese, Helen Flanagan & Sir Ian McKellen.
