I am hard-working with an eye for detail and always willing to go the extra mile to meet deadlines. I am flexible and resourceful with more than ten years’ experience in graphic design and have been photographing weddings for the past five years. That's the formal bit, however, the testimonials I've received from lovely people I've worked with say more about my skills than I care to. Please read them here...

So, a little more about me....
Do I have any pets?
I have a cat, Cookie, and I adore her. She is often the willing photography model I crave when I feel like getting my camera out.
What I do in my spare time?
I am passionate about photography and in my spare time I’m mostly out and about with a camera photographing anything and everything. Fortunately my partner is also a photographer so we can spend hours photographing bees around a bush or buildings in London without the fear of the other getting bored.
Tea or coffee?
Herbal tea all the way - green in the morning, peppermint after meals, lemon & ginger anytime and chamomile in the evenings. I store chocolate biscuits in the freezer and there's nothing better than a frozen chockie bickie with a herbal tea, any time of day!
How I keep fit?
It HAS to be Zumba! The best thing since sliced bread, and better for you :) You can dance "like no-one's watching, because no-one is! It's the most fun you can have in an hour. I also enjoy yoga (the good old slow down yoga not the fast paced hot stuff that's so popular now).
As much of my work keeps me stuck behind my computer, I volunteer at Oxfam which gets me out of the house and I enjoy it very much.
Favourite places to visit?
I enjoy visiting art galleries - my very favourite being the National Gallery and this absolutely must be followed by apple crumble and custard in St Martin-in-the-Fields Crypt cafe. I love walking in beautiful places with special friends. The South Downs, Seven Sisters, anywhere with a view of the sea and where the wind can blow away the cobwebs. And forests... I love trees and I the way light catches the leaves, and how the rays break through at certain times of day. Just gorgeous!
I've been learning to play the guitar on and off for some years. It's definitely on my 'to do' list.
