About me

I am a London Event Photographer working as a professional female photographer based in the heart of London with over 20 years of experience working as an events photographer, conference photographer, Corporate, Portraits, Headshots, Branding and Architecture and Interior Photography.

I started my career as a news photographer which I thoroughly enjoyed and I learned my craft. Working in such a high-pressured environment to tight deadlines every day meant that I developed key strengths and skills that I still possess today My work varied immensely one morning I was photographing Barak Obama arriving to Number 10 Downing Street and in the afternoon I was photographing an intimate portrait with Ronni Wood. This variety fulfilled my creativity immensely.

I have an ability to build a rapport with anyone from all walks of life; I am a problem-solver who can work quickly and efficiently; I can think on the spot; and I’m a good all-rounder. I firmly believe these are great assets for a photographer, which I combine with my excellent social skills
