About me

I have been working as a professional photographer for more than 10 years.  After studying a HND Photography course at Mid Cheshire College and graduating in 2006, I began my career as a press and media photographer at Mid Cheshire Guardian series newspapers, shooting for a range of newspaper titles including the Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich and Knutsford Guardians.

Eager to progress my career, I then took a senior photographer role at North Wales’ oldest regional newspaper – The Leader series, owned by NWN Media,  which includes the daily news titles – The Flintshire Leader, The Wrexham Leader and The Chester Standard.

Despite enjoying a varied and exciting career as a press photographer, my freelance work, specialising in PR, Corporate and Commercial Photography,  was expanding rapidly so in 2015 I took the plunge to leave my press photographer role and set up my own photography business.

I am extremely proud of my business and how much my client base has grown and continues to expand all over North East Wales and North West England in such a short period of time. My clients include Flintshire County Council, The Welsh Air Ambulance, Ceidiog PR, Outwrite PR, Hanson Cement, Gladstone Library, Rooms & Views, Weber Shandwick, VolkerGround Engineering and the CSA Group.

On a personal level, I’m a mum-of-one with a real passion for photography. I love my job, the places it takes me and the people I meet, so if you want to find out more about how I could help you, then please get in touch.

I am also an award-winning wedding and lifestyle photographer.
