I first became intersted in photography as a teenager growing up in Canada. I eventually reached my goal to be a photographer some years later, but only after getting my PhD in Neurosciences from Cambridge University and working for a medical advertising agency. This diverse background equipped me with an analytical as well as creative approach to life.
MY STRENGTHS: getting people to feel relaxed and enjoy having their photos taken. I’m really enthusiastic and passionate about getting the best out of people.
MY HOBBIES: I spend all my spare time with my daughter. Can you count that as a hobby?
FAVOURITE PLACE FOR ICECREAM: Dairy Queen, Vancouver, UK (where I’m from).
At University I earned a degree in Illustration. The time I spent there taught me to see. It made me an observer and a storyteller – two huge pluses when you end up working on photos for a living.
MY STRENGTHS: I have been working with Photoshop for over 20 years. I gain a real sense of satisfaction from a job well done. From finishing an editing job where the retouching is perfect. Where (unless called for) the outcome looks natural and ironically, untouched.
MY HOBBIES: country walks. Lots and lots of country walks.
FAVOURITE PLACE FOR A COUNTRY WALK: South Wales. Ask me for a map!
I have always loved doing hair and make up since I was a young child. Making women and men look beautiful is a great feeling.
MY STRENGTHS: My versatility in the styles of hair I work with, whether it’s short or long, curtly or straight
MY HOBBIES: Family time (and rock climbing!)
FAVOURITE PLACE FOR ROCK CLIMBING: Locally I go to Virgin Active in Twickenham they have an indoor climbing wall!
