I had an idea of ra shoot for a little while using Angel winds but when these arrived they were far bigger than I had envisaged! Still we took them on holiday with us and I persuaded my daughter to get up early so we could make the most of the soft morning light and the quite beaches. This was our favourite image...The soft, light feathers of the wings contrast with the dark, hard granite rocks and her pose really suited her personality- lots of sass!!

For many years I have worked as a professional photographer mainly capturing children and families. I enjoy making images in Black and White and as time goes on my imagery is taking on a more fine art feel, particularly in respect of my portrait work.
After illness this year I have focussed a little more on my personal work, photography has been therapeutic and rewarding as I recover. I am looking for new projects to undertake, perhaps with a travel element and new subjects to photograph. I love the work of Jean Loup Sieff and if I had my time again would love to have been a fashion photographer!
Our daughters have often been my inspiration and as they grow up they give me new ways and ideas of photographing them...I am definitely shifting away from "lifestyle" imagery, endeavouring to produce more posed, thoughtful images which simultaneously relate something of the subject through the eyes..
My first piece of photographic advice was from my Father who told me to "fill the frame" and unless I am telling a story within an image this is what I seek to do.
