I live perched on a hill at the edge of the Mendips, with my husband, daughter, husky and chickens. I’m a hippy at heart and love taking the dog on a muddy run through the forest, but I’m equally happy with a pint of cider and a packet of pork scratchings (yes, really). I genuinely believe I have the best job in the world.
I completed a degree in Visual Studies at Norwich University of the Arts, specialising in photography and travelling to Bangladesh to document the work of Sandhani for my final major project. My love of photography blossomed in my early 20s when I set off solo around the world. I realised that, instead of the picture postcard snaps that dominated most people’s travel albums, I was drawn to those fleeting moments that we only notice when we’re really concentrating on what’s happening around us.
This motivation has lead to my focus on reportage-style photography rather than stiff, posed portraits. I work in the background, looking for alternative angles and interesting viewpoints to create images that are as unique as you, your business and your passion. Engage me on a shoot and you’ll soon discover that having your photograph taken can be an enjoyable experience – and you’ll love the results!
In my 20-something years as a professional photographer I have built up a portfolio of clients that range from multi-national corporations to local entrepreneurs, covered extravagant weddings and intimate ceremonies, and photographed everything from private parties to public figures.
We’ve been friends since university, where we both completed a degree in Visual Studies – Rachel totally trumped me with her first, and is also an accomplished artist as well as an amazing photographer. Rachel’s artistic background brings a creative flair to her photography, and she has the wonderful ability to surreptitiously capture intimate moments.
