I’ve been drawn to the sea for as long as I can remember really (yes all v Moana and my hair isn’t as good!). I live in London now but I grew up just a couple of miles from the sea and we visited often as a family just as weekend jaunt to eat sandwiches or go plodging (it’s northern thing). My favourite place in the world before I explored further afield was St Mary’s Lighthouse near Whitley Bay, just down the road from my little suburbia. Summer holidays were spent gathering with all my cousins and extended family at High or Low Newton where my mam and her sisters had all spent their childhood holidays and being forced into the north sea with nowt but a bikini on (wetsuits were for wimps or professional surfers in the 70s & 80s!).Read More

If you’re a product maker or seller, your usual Christmas fairs and means of attracting seasonal shoppers are likely to be off the table this year and you may need to think more creatively about how you reach your customers.

Janine came to me looking for some colourful headshots and personal branding photography for the launch of her new coaching business in south London – Janine Green Coaching.
Janine’s brand is very light and colourful so we worked together at our initial pre-session consultation to discuss her brand values, her brand colours and how we could best visually represent those with a range of images that gave her potential clients a sense of who she is. Her main demand – ‘no fake smiley photos showing I know how to use a laptop or staring vacantly into the distance!’Read More
I first photographed Ben and Catherine and their family over three years ago at one of their – and my – favourite haunts, the Horniman Gardens.
I was delighted when Ben contacted me again to say he was surprising Catherine with a birthday present to document their now slightly bigger family with Miranda joining big brother Fred. So we headed back down to the Horniman once again to capture some special family moments simply kicking a ball around, playing on scooters and ride-on cars and an impromptu game of cricket or two.
