Thinking about your brand’s next lookbook, editorial or campaign shoot? Want some help putting a concept together or booking models? Perhaps its your first photoshoot and you don’t know where to start, or you’re completely overwhelmed by it all and you just want someone else to take this off your hands? You’re in the right place; come on in and make yourself comfy…
LETS WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE SOMETHING
My role is much more than a photographer; I’m here to help make shooting your next campaign as painless as possible. I know the blood, sweat and tears that you’ve shed to make sure every intricate detail of your collection is perfect. The countless hours you’ve spent designing, pattern cutting, refining. That handful of half-finished samples that didn’t quite make it into the collection. After months of solid hard work, late nights and early mornings; channeling all your energy into this creation, you need to find someone who will do your brand proud. Do you proud. That’s the point where I come in: I want to highlight all those delicate touches you’ve agonised over that make your work truly special. I want the images to be a continuation of your brand; to ignite a spark in people when they delve into your lookbook or devour your campaign. Lets work together to photograph your collection and show it in the best – and most beautiful – light.
AFTER ALL, NOW IS YOUR TIME TO
From recommending tried and tested professional stylists to offering you a peek at my location lust-list, we’ll curate a plan in such detail that you’ll feel assured you’re in safe hands. I’m able to offer creative direction as well as full project management on your shoot, if required, and I have access to renowned and established hair and makeup artists; ones I have built up a professional level of trust with, who consistently bring their A-game, offering a staggeringly high quality of work. I’ve also got the contacts to source a wide range of models. All this helps take the pressure off you, giving you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the experience.
On a practical level, my portable and lightweight lighting kit makes it super easy to shoot anywhere; really, anywhere. An art deco bar, a specialist photographic studio kitted out with sets, the library at Jesus College in Oxford University, a boutique hotel, a penthouse suite filled with 20 people… I’ve done it, and can handle it. My years of experience photographing anywhere and everywhere means I’m ready for anything; nothing phases me, and yet every time I shoot I feel the same ignition of passion and excitement I did the first time I took a photograph.
As for retouching, did you know I’m an ambassador for both Adobe and Wacom? Thats right, having spent most of the past decade delivering lectures, workshops, tutorials and live streams for other photographers on how to edit their photos and speed up their post-photoshoot workflows, my industry accreditations make me your go to woman for high end, realistic retouching. No plastic looking skin over here! I’ll get as much right as possible in camera, then colour match any garments as necessary and give the images a quick polish before they are ready to be released. Your entire photographic needs met in one simple package.

Drop me an email now with your wildest dreams, and let’s turn them into an unforgettable reality; I can’t wait to hear what you’ve got in mind! We’ll schedule in a get-together over a cuppa (gin) – or a Skype if you prefer – and get cracking on some plans.
WE'RE ON A REALLY TIGHT DEADLINE, CAN YOU HELP?
It is always worth asking! Depending on the time of the year, I can sometimes squeeze in an extra last minute project. Pop me an email via the contact page or give me a call and I will see what I can do for you.
DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN STUDIO?
As most of my clients prefer to shoot on location these days, I no longer have a fixed photographic studio, choosing instead to convert a little room in my home into an editing suite! However, I am currently working on a gorgeous Art Deco inspired boudoir room that will be available to hire – and I have access to plenty of studios across the UK that we can use for your shoot.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Every client has a completely unique set of requirements for their shoot, from concept to retouching requirements and usage rights. This is why all of my commercial shoots are based on a bespoke pricing structure. If you’d like to discuss your ideas and get a quote, pop me an email via the contact page. You can also request a phone call or free 30 minute Skype consultation if you’d prefer.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL? DO YOU TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY?
I love a good road trip! I’m based 25 minutes outside Kings Cross in Hertfordshire and regularly travel into London, but the sky is the limit. You name it, I can be there! I have a UK passport and can travel and work anywhere within the EU, EEA and Switzerland. I’m also happy to work further afield, providing the necessary paperwork and visas are organised. Taxi, take me to the airport please!
(Travel expenses may apply)
WHAT DOES YOUR RETOUCHING INVOLVE?
On both my private and commercial photoshoots, I always try to get as much as I can spot on in-camera, so when it comes to retouching we can keep the Photoshopping as minimal as possible. Poses will be chosen to flatter both the garment and the model, and I’ll use a range of tools throughout the shoot to make sure all images are white-balanced and colour-corrected to provide accurate images for your online customers,
After you’ve chosen your favourite images, they’ll be put through my signature style of retouching, which includes exposure correction, cropping, straightening, noise reduction, sharpening, and a touch of skin retouching and garment tweaking where required. And, if there’s anything else you’d like to request, I’ll absolutely do my best to accommodate!
DO YOU OFFER PRODUCT CUT OUTS/PACKSHOTS?
At this time, I am not offering product cut outs or packshots
COULD YOU ALSO SHOOT OUR CAMPAIGN EVENT?
I’d love to! Events are great fun to photograph, so whether you’re hosting a show, soirée or full blown shindig, get in touch with the details of your event (including date, hours and number of guests) and I will let you know my availability and rates.
