My Artist Grandmother taught me how to develop photographs in the bathtub which we used as a makeshift darkroom. I was 9 years old. Since then I have had a great love of Photography. At high school I was one of two students to have access to the dark room. This passion has now carried forward into the digital age, and been re-ignited by my study of the moving image and learning to edit video. Apparently studies show we remember in still images. Memory and imagination are also powerfully linked.
I have learnt on the job, working regularly for 4 years as a freelance portrait photographer in studios in Manchester which gave me a renewed understanding and further training my eye. I have shot over 1500 people’s portrait sessions.
I have regularly provided photography packages for bands, events, small businesses, weddings and theatrical productions.
I have most recently photographed Manchester University Drama Department Students at work for the university website and printed promotional materials, and shot promotional materials for theatre performances.
