I hold a B.A. (Hons) in Commercial Photography awarded by Derby University. I am also a Qualified Member of the British Institute of Professional Photography.

I have always loved animals.  As a child I brought home a variety of stray animals; including a lost pony on a skipping rope halter – begging my parents to let me keep him (but instead being firmly told to find its owner).  Since setting up my own home, our family has included dogs, cats, hens, chickens, ducks, geese, horses and alpacas..  Through various farming connections I have developed a practical and respectful manner when handling livestock. 

I have a kind and confident nature with animals of all sizes and a fascination for their ability to portray personality and feelings without a single word.  I am passionate about imaginatively capturing their unique characters and precious moments.  I can arrange shoots either at events, on location or in The Pet Set studio – whichever best suits your needs. 

If you would prefer to improve your own photography skills, I  have over 15 years’ teaching experience.  Why not check out the courses I run for all levels of ability or contact me to arrange a 1:1 training day.

Additional services include designing, editing and framing prints to perfectly complement home decor, etc.  Hence the website name, Photo Finish Frame, meeting your individual needs from start to finish.
