Finding the light

After hours of practicing with one strobe and a v flat. I did this self portrait. I love the beautiful soft light but I know that with more practice, I’ll be able to achieve more detail in the shadows.

Don’t Hold Back on your Gallery Wall

Gallery Wall

So you have your beautiful  prints with digital files. What are you to do? Of course, there’s the obvious, you post them on social media, where you may or may not get the likes you think they should receive. You put all the digital files on your phone, so that you can show all the pictures to your family, friends and work colleagues. Eventually the photos will get lost with the thousands of other photos you have on your phone. You have been promising yourself to organise your photos into albums to make the best ones more accessible but you haven’t quite got around to doing it because you’re too busy or it’s just too overwhelming.

And the prints! Well they have now been stored somewhere until you can find the time and energy to get them framed and proudly hung on your wall.

So let’s flip this; create a gallery wall of your best portraits or memories so that you can view them everyday and see your prints beautifully framed. These will last a lifetime, if done properly.

Most storage devices won’t be around forever as they are always evolving. Remember the floppy disk! I’m going back a few years now, oh and now I’m showing my age! 

I get great pleasure from my gallery wall. Of course I show photos from my phone and iPad, but the greatest joy I have is printing and framing my images and creating a gallery wall.

This is mine! What does yours look like?

My nine favorite portrait photo’s this year.



I created these portraits in my home studio, on the handpainted backdrop I created. It might look a bit gnarly but it photograph’s beautifully. I’m known for my makeover style of portrait photography but I can shoot you in whatever style you like. Check these out now.

Behind the scene

A behind the scene look at where I create the clients portraits. The gnarly looking backdrop was handpainted and created by me. It took a few goes to get it right but I got the look that I imagined. Let me create your portrait in my home studio.
Check this out now.

Alison and David

alison and david (1 of 1)-61914511800..jpgSo, I’m not a big fan of having my picture taken. I’d rather hide behind the camera.

But this portrait of Alison and I fills me with such joy that I’m having a huge framed print of this image made.

It just goes without saying , that you should exist in your photos.

Don’t be the one that’s always taking the pictures.

Have your portrait done now. You are beautiful as you are. Exist in photos.


A location shoot in Wisley Gardens, it’s such a beautiful place to shoot portraits. I love doing this, being able to manipulate the light to create beautiful portraits of you for you. This is my passion to capture the beauty in you.
