About me

I am a photographer based in Northamptonshire in the UK. I specialise in animal and creative photography. I am comfortable working with a range of animals from having grown up in the countryside on a working farm and constantly surrounded by pets, farm animals and local wildlife, since then I have photographed a range of animals from dogs to cows. Anthropomorphism is also a central concern in my work, where I try to portray human emotions or ideas in my animal portraits. I am an enthusiastic, reliable and hardworking individual with a meticulous eye for detail. Looking to further develop skills in new environments to tell people’s stories through words and pictures. I attended the University of Northampton where I earned a First BA (Hons) degree in Photographic Practice. I am a member of the Association of Photographers, Royal Photographic Society, Shutterhub and the Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers. I also won the 2015/2016 professional photographer animal/wildlife group category in the FAPA- the online international Fine Art Photography awards competition.
