Growing up in the beautiful Gloucestershire villages of Corse, Corse Lawn and Chaceley was idyllic. The only downside was just the one bus a week into Gloucester. A two mile walk each way to catch a bus into Gloucester is not ideal when working full time, so after completing my two year photography course I made the move to Gloucester and joined a top photographer at a long established company in the city. During these 12 years I learnt all the skills of running a successful photography business in and out of the studio. In 1988 after qualifying with the British Institute of Professional Photography, I decided it was time to open my own studio.
In my specially created home studio at Pintail Close I am able to offer you and your family fabulous portrait photography from one person to a large family group. (See my portrait page for full details). What I love about my work is to see so many of my clients return with their families year after year. This can only be achieved when an excellent service is provided with sensible prices.
After photographing weddings for 30 years, locally, nationally and even in Italy, I decided 2013 would be my last year photographing weddings to concentrate on my studio portraits and pre-school photography. If you were one of my many Brides and Grooms I photographed before going fully digital, you are most welcome to your wedding negatives. Contact me via email with your names, date of your wedding and the locations for your day.
For further photography information click on the appropriate button at the top of the page to visit 'family portraits', 'maternity and baby'or 'pre-school photography'. All the photographs shown on this website have been taken by me.
