Hi I’m Rachel – a published and multi award-winning photographer and film-maker.
I cut my teeth over 25 years ago as a photo-journalist and now specialise in capturing real life stories of small businesses and families. I’m a mum, artist, campervan enthusiast, music-lover and sea-seeker amongst other things. Originaly from Northumberland I now live in Malton in North Yorkshire, after 20 years in London.
So here’s a few more facts about me, that make up my story (and a photo of me in a Scottish loch with blue hair!):
