The beginning – A photographer is born

My own journey, from training as a fifteen-year-old painter and decorator to receiving a life changing diagnosis of Myalgia Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) to then falling in love with the art of photography has certainly been both unique and challenging.

My condition compelled me to dig deep and uncover a passion that was to inspire me to capture the beauty and heartbeat of the land I had grown to love.

Photography quickly became my life.

And now…

I attend regular trade shows and take my stall to events where people know me and come back time and time again, just to see my pictures. My unique images of local Wildlife and Landscapes are highly sought after and feature in my online shop as well as several shops throughout the North- East. I am extremely proud to say that some have even been published in Landscape Photography of the Year.

I have a huge following on social media and receive regular positive feedback on my posts which has motivated me to explore other fields within photography such as corporate, event, and most recently pet photography. I deliver landscape photography talks at camera clubs throughout the region and offer 1:1 tuition.

I offer a friendly and professional service with a smile and happy to travel to locations throughout the North- East for commissions. My images can be purchased in A4 prints, MDF boards, wallpaper and greetings cards amongst others so please feel free to browse my catalogue or get in touch for an informal chat about your requirements.
