About us

Photography has alway been a hobby of mine, chasing Rainbow's across field's and trying to catch that last glimps of sunlight out at sea, so when i was given the chance to turn my hobby into a full time career, although a little apprehensive at first, it has been the best decision I have ever made.

It all started in 2005 when i went on a weekend break to Paris to visit the Chateau de Versailles. I went with a disposable camera and it wasn't until I got home and had the film developed that my passion started to grow. A picture of the Eiffel Tower taken from low on the ground stirred something inside me, and later that year i upgraded my disposable to a level entry DSLR. That picture of the Eiffel Tower is still to this day hanging pride of place in my hallway, and everytime i pass it it reminds me of how far i have come. Landscapes and macro Photography was my hobby and after being asked to Photograph various family occassions, and enjoying it, i decided to pack up my full time job as a Chef and start my own business on a part time basis. 


In 2011 I enrolled  with The Institute Of Photography and completed a 12 unit course on basic Photography. I gained my first Diploma and then achieved the advanced Diploma the following year.  Wanting to gain more indepth knowledge not only from behind the lens, but also the wider aspects of Photography, I signed up for a City and Guilds in 2014, and in July 2015 where  I  completed the level 2 in Photography.

I have a passion for learning new things and am always on the look out for new idea's and props, recently starting cakesmash photoshoots which are a great success with toddler's and parents as well.
