Some things you might like to know about me

I have been passionate about photography since I received my first camera for my 7th birthday and I drove my friends and family mad snapping them up close and in their faces.

I prefer informal photography capturing people's personality in my photographs.

I believe in keeping things simple and organic. I try to use only natural light as I want my subjects to be as comfortable as possible - it has to be fun and a little bit different - but most of all it has to be about capturing the moment.

Since graduating in 2000 with a BA in Media and Communications specialising in photography; I have been fortunate to be able to channel my creativity in the media industry and each role I have undertaken has enabled me to learn and enhance my skills.
