I’m a creative and enthusiastic photographer with a passion for new and exciting ventures with my most trusted and precious tool - my camera.
Specialising in weddings, portraits, lifestyle and event photography. People are my thing! I enjoy getting to know my clients before I photograph them, taking a nice and relaxed attitude to make them feel as comfortable as possible.
My first journey into photography was from the age of twelve when my Dad bought me a polaroid camera. I photographed anything from trees and landscapes to my friends and family. The joy I got out of seeing the image I’d produced in an instant gave me so much excitement. After realizing my love for this wonderful art form I spent hour after hour in the darkroom at school getting my hands stained yellow with photographic chemicals, waiting with anticipation to see what image would be produced.
After completing my final years at school I decided to travel to Central America to adventure and explore new sights with my camera. Different smells, colours, contrasts and unknown territory heightened my enthusiasm to see more.
Completed in 2010, my photography degree opened my eyes to a world of dark, light, film and chemical; I spent most of my time in the darkroom, concentrating on developing my skills to produce that perfect image. I now work mainly with digital but still feel the knowledge and background I’ve had in film has given a firm foundation to my digital skills both behind the lens and in post production.
Coming from a travelling background made me want to discover what more the world had to offer, so moving out to Vancouver in 2012 felt like the right thing to do. I’ve never looked back since; I’m still finding more beautiful scenery to photograph, abstract shots to seek out and portraits of beautiful people to capture.
After 4 years in Canada I have now moved back to the motherland, Devon. My favourite place in the world. My family are here, the landscape is beautiful and there are endless images to capture.
