ABOUT ME

Photography has always been part of my life in one way or another.  I was lucky, I had a Dad who was a very gifted amateur photographer - I would love to watch him develop and print his films, and when we went out for walks, he would let me borrow his camera and take photographs myself.  So I grew up surrounded by photographs.

 

I married and had a family, but it wasn't until my children were older that I thought about taking photography more seriously.  I began studies as a mature student at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design in Farnham, now The University of Creative Arts, and  graduated in 1998 with a First Class Honours degree in Photography.  Afterwards I worked for the local newspaper group, the Herald, which meant I photographed all kinds of events around Surrey and Hampshire.  I also ran my own successful business doing PR and wedding photography.

 

I began to enjoy writing as well as taking photographs, and became a photojournalist, researching and writing articles for national magazines.

 

As Photographer in Residence at Farnham Maltings in Surrey for 12 years,  I aimed to pass on my enthusiasm to other people, holding regular classes in digital photography for adults and children. I also ran a darkroom and enjoyed working with traditional photography.
