I remember standing and staring in awe at the ‘The Lady of Shalott’ when I saw it years ago in a London gallery. It’s a picture I had on my wall when I gave birth to my daughter at home, it’s one of those pictures which has stayed with me through my life. I have always loved the softness of the colours the mystery and the femininity shown in paintings by John Waterhouse. Here are some recent portrait images I took at my studio which were definitely inspired by his beautiful art.
I have always loved low light photography and am currently working on a series of fine art portraiture, experimenting with props and clothing. If you would like to discuss a shoot please contact me on 01206 511986.
A devastating life changing event, a driver under the influence drove in to him and knocked him off his push bike and crushed his right leg which resulted in major surgery implanting a metal rod and everything in his life being put on hold. Everyone can understand and talk about the leg break, the steel rod and the healing process but the unseen is the psychological damage and torment of someone else taking away some independence and choice and changing your body and your life forever.

Head shots don’t have to be stuffy and dull, clients come to my studio but I also visit clients at their work place. It all depends on your company message, how you want your clients to see you and the colour and style of your website.
Headshots start at £75, this includes the edit and choice from approx 30-60 images.
I know it’s been a while since I added a blog post, after a busy summer I took some time off and lost myself on a boat on the Norfolk Broads and loved a week away on Rhodes cycling to deserted beaches and eating lots of greek salad. Now I’m back having switched one of my labels from being a ‘smoker’ to being a ‘vaper’ I have also had my haircut and am seriously reconsidering the gym!
So a little piece of news ( which I am really chuffed about) is Nicholas McCarthy (Pianist) has chosen to use one of my images to use on his new album cover Echoes which is out now he is also on tour see more info here.
Spending so much time in my studio it’s a refreshing change to go and shoot outside. The beach is a great place to head with young children you don’t need many props just let them have fun and explore as long as it’s not too cold or chucking it down with rain it’s perfect for getting natural shots. Take a look at my site The Family Photographer to find out more.
