About me

Art & Design has always been my passion...I was born and raised in London and after school, I followed this passion with a degree at Suffolk University. Upon graduation in 1998, I was fortunate to embark on a career in the Film Industry. 


I worked in the Special effects department were visuals were created. These visuals ranged from atmospheric effects, pyrotechnics, animatronics, sculptures, and prosthetics.

A significant element of my work was to ensure that our projects were documented from start to finish.  My progress shots were given to directors and producers to update them on the status of our projects prior to filming.


Always having a passion for photography, this documentary-style soon became an obsession.  I combined it with Photojournalism, a style I greatly admire.  Documentary, street photography and taking photos of everyday people all around me became a fascination.


Having a family of my own,  I was like no other parent and was continually capturing magic moments. 

I wanted to take photographs of my children, my family, and friends on a daily basis to ensure these memories are freeze-framed so they could be kept and remembered forever. Children change so quickly in such a short space of time, so many moments are missed and so easily forgotten... memories for the children to also have and to remember the joys of their childhood.


Family photojournalism is something I do naturally without thinking, however, realizing I can share these precious moments to others was something that felt amazing!  Naturally, I wanted to make a career out of something I love doing.


Having these photographs presented in a book or on a wall collage, rather stuck on a computer is such a wonderful way to share and visualise these precious moments that you can look at, think back and smile.


The Photography book will become a very special keepsake to pass down. “Sentimental" is my middle name.  This is why my  "Family Photojournalism package"  "Life's moments" needs to be accompanied by a beautiful photography book, This for me is a must. 

See examples of these photos in the "A Day in the Life"  and the slide show in videos


Another huge passion of mine is creating fine art photography for your walls. Documenting images of your special moments are not meant to be hidden away! These Images are presented and printed on high-quality paper, mounted and ready to be framed making your photographs perfect for you to fill your walls.
