Hello and welcome,
I’m a freelance photographer specialising in portraiture and performing arts photography.
I love the theatre and all the creative energies that come together to produce a show. As a Gemini creativity runs through my very being. I have a real passion for my work and love what I do as I get the unique opportunity to meet amazing people on an almost daily basis.
Working mainly on location, I try to capture the mood and personality of the subjects in front of my lens and create a vivid sense of atmosphere. Working with people, capturing moments, emotions that otherwise would be lost to history and seeing the joy on people’s faces when they see their portrait for the first time; that’s why I do what I do.
Every face has a story, often untold, who’s narrative is there for us to see and hear should we take the time and in the words of Shakespeare, “tarry a while. There’s something else.” A portrait is a conversation.
I love to discover people’s stories; from war veterans, city professionals and to the dinner lady from my primary school days. Using my photographic vision, I endeavour to capture the essence of the person and create a compelling and aesthetic portrait that echoes their story, their conversation.
I create most of my portraits in client’s homes and although I am based in Lancashire I travel extensively for projects. On a recent trip to France I was privileged to meet a lady who survived the Dresden bombings of WWII and during our ‘conversation’ discovered she was an artist who had worked with the sculptor Oscar Nemon. Amazing.
