Hi and Welcome to my portrait website. I’ve been photographing children and families for over twelve years now. What started as a hobby quickly grew into my full time work and yes, I know I’m really lucky to spend my days doing something that I truly enjoy.
Hopefully from browsing the galleries on here you have already realised that fundamentally my style of photography is timeless and to an extent very natural. It is most definitely captured in a relaxed manner however I am very drawn to the surroundings on which I work and the creative effect of light. So although I want you to have beautiful images looking to the camera I also love to create something with resonance and impact. This doesn’t always require an impress location as without any hesitation light is always the key to producing a unique portrait.
Talking about light – all of my portrait photography uses available light. This can be a window light, a stream of sunshine, reflected light from a tiled floor. I could go on. My aim is always to choose locations carefully based on the quality of light. An overcast, dark day can offer very beautiful light. A sunny day can add drama. They are both equally interesting and creative.
