ABOUT ME

I'm a freelance female photographer based in the North West.

I have been involved in the music industry for 11 years. I have experience of photoshoots with bands, artists, models, plus various live shows, events, festivals, theatre and ballet.

I'm more than happy to tailor what you need and design a package. People say I am very easy to work with, make them feel at ease, and have a good sense of humour.

Please note: I will require a small deposit for any shoot booked, payable either by paypal or bank transfer. I will require the full payment before the day of the shoot.
