I've loved photography since I was old enough to use a camera - it required film in those days - but it is only relatively recently that I have become a professional. For most of my working life, I have made my living as a commercial Interior Designer, 12 of those years working for one of the largest Architectural firms in the country. That gave me a fantastic grounding in understanding buildings, how people use them and what makes an inspirational space.

I have been a professional photographer for four years and have worked for a complete cross-section of clients, from big corporate organisations to small start-up businesses. I love the opportunity to meet new people, visit new places and interpret those through the medium of photography.

I still practice design (as Story Design) and I firmly believe the two skills are highly complimentary. My photography is driven by light, space, scale and also activity - all of which are also significant factors in architecture and interiors.
