"I love creating beautiful images"


Thank you for taking an interest in my website. I'm a Lancashire-based photographer specialising in fashion, portrait, lifestyle and creative images.
I started out in the fashion industry in the early 1980s and then, for over twenty-five years, focused my talents in beauty and skin care, running my own sucessful business for a number of years. Part of that business involved hair styling and makeup artistry which led me to work alongside many professional photographers. You could say that spreading my wings into the creative world of photography has been a natural progression, even if is has been a long time coming. Certainly having that experience has given me valuable insight into organising my own shoots and I'm proud to say that I'm not the only one who thinks so. My work has been published in several magazines with more plans afoot as noted below.


I get inspiration from anything and everything around me, but having a background in fashion and beauty has been the biggest influence and I think it's apparent in my style of photography. I have always loved old Hollywood movies. The glamour of those black and white images instilled a love of the sophisticated movie icon. Quirkiness, eccentric characters, patterns, textures, bohemia, fairy tales, renaissance paintings, fine art, story-telling, colour and nature are all appealing subjects to me.


I am proud to have been awarded an Associateship with the SWPP. In 2017 I took part in one of the outstanding Walter's Wardrobe events and did a fashion photography workshop with Lara Jade Photography I have also completed several photography training days at Aspire Photography Training.

What the future holds

I am now working towards a Fellowship qualification with the Societies of Photographers. I'm pushing the boundaries and am not afraid to try something new. My professional aim is to always focus on my client's needs and offer the very best service to produce perfect images that showcase their vision.
