Commercial, Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer based in Devon


The secret to taking a good photo is the perfect combination of a naturally artistic eye, heightened visual & emotional awareness, technical aptitude, tons of ideas, connecting easily with people and being super-motivated and in love (obsessed, more like) with what I do.

As a professional "grapher" of photos, my specialism is property interiors & exteriors, architecture, lifestyle & commercial in the main. Previously, I owned and managed a successful portfolio of holiday rentals and truly understand the persuasive influence photography plays in business. I consider my ability to style each shoot, capture the imagination, tell a story and inspire action, as my greatest superpower.

When I'm not behind a camera, you can find me walking my two beautiful Thai rescue dogs, regularly stopping to take photos of them … oh wait ...

Print is Primal

Artisans always need to show their work and I love design too. A history of creating 'hands on print' collateral, compliments my love of photography with design layouts which can open the door to new business opportunities for anyone in need of unique, thoughtful and creative print marketing materials.


My early childhood was enthusiastically recorded through the lenses of my Dad's camera trio - a Canon Super 8 Auto Zoom 518, his Canon FT-QL SLR and Polaroid Land Camera 180. Real cutting edge tech in the 60's & 70's and boy am I grateful for his avidity. Tragically, his living years were short and in Jan '74, suddenly he was gone. 

In the years that followed, I'd dip in & out of my Dad's stash of boxed slides absorbing the memories of our life overseas and sought comfort gazing through the illuminated window of my hand-held slide viewer marvelling at each transparent treasure - it was inescapable that his photo-passion would percolate.

I couldn't wait to leave school and headed off to art college but my photo-heart couldn't be broken and after more study - three years later, I left with a BA Hons in Photography.

That's how I came to be a photographer. Medical Photography is where I began my career in a Leicester teaching hospital and echoed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
