When I first started out as a professional photographer over 12 years ago I worked for Concept for Living Magazine a specialist Interior design & Lifestyle publication. At the time my title was Chief Photographer, but I was in fact the only photographer! I used to joke about my grand title with the other girls in the office, but working in my own gave me the opportunity to hone my skills and quickly built a diverse portfolio full of portraits, homes, gardens and lifestyle photography.
Eventually I took a leap of faith and became a full time freelance photographer and have been working independently for 8 years. My work varies from day to day some of you may have seen me on TV working for Drew Pritchard, Presenter of Quest TV’s Salvage Hunter. Other clients include - Arts Council Wales, Discovery Channel & Lego, I have also been a contributing photographer for 25 Beautiful Homes & Style at Home, The Financial Times, Metro Vintage Explore, Permaculture Monthly, The Green Parent and Pretty Nostalgic Magazine.
In addition to maintaining my practice, I am a visiting lecturer at Chester University and also work in collaboration with my partner and photographer David Paddy running Tilt & Shift a small independent photographic workshop and gallery in our hometown of Llanrwst.
If you are interested in commissioning some work please get in touch and I will be more than happy to talk photography with you.
