I am a professional photographer with over 13 years of experience. Having studied Photography at University back in the days of film & dark rooms, I subsequently started my Photography career many years later after the birth of my first child. I have since worked with several major brands, including Coca-Cola, Virgin, Pukka Tea, Birra Moretti & many more.
My portfolio includes Look Book Shoots, Portrait & Headshot Photography, Promotional Shoots, Product Photography, Event Photography and more. My most recent shoot was for Sam Fiers’ fashion label saintavenue.com where you can find my work.
I am fully skilled in Studio Lighting as well as working with Natural Light. My editing is matched to the look and feel of the brand so it complements my clients own unique image style. This is particularly useful to those brands who just need a few extra images to add to their existing website and need the lighting and grading to be exactly the same as the ones they already have.
As a Child Headshot Photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing many portfolios for children from experienced models / actors to beginners who are new to the industry. Watching children who have had no experience come for their first ever professional shoot to then go on to get amazing opportunities and see them on the TV and billboards, brings me great joy.
I love watching a child develop, the difference I see in children from the first session to the next and the next, is just wonderful. Each time they develop and grow and I feel a sense of pride in all of them. It’s beautiful to see progress and the confidence grow each time.
Parents new to the industry often choose me not only for their portfolios, but also for guidance in the industry, especially those who are still seeking agency representation. Having worked closely with top agencies and with casting directors, I understand the industry, standards and expectations and I photograph my headshots accordingly.
All my sessions are relaxed and fun. I engage with the children to gain their most natural expressions: I always aim to keep expressions real and natural to capture your child’s personality and character in my images.
Headshots need to be clear and a true representation of your child. So you will rarely find me over styling a session as the child needs to look like their picture when they walk into a casting room. I always keep my styling simple and instead work on expressions and emotions to capture the best shots.
For editorial modelling portfolios, we still need to capture the natural headshots, however, I also incorporate a few editorial styles to give you a more versatile portfolio.
