Work life.

Being a full time professional photographer with over 25 years experience. I have worked for the past 10 years as the Senior photographer on a Regional Newspaper the office is in Billericay, Essex. My work day can easily take me from Southend to Thurrock to Romford and even across Essex to Maldon and Braintree.

Being a Newspaper photographer I have a portfolio second to none. Work is very varied, photographing all members of the Royal Family, most Prime Ministers, MP’s When they visit Essex, 1000’s of children along with some very remarkable people and beautiful Weddings. It is also my job to do all the commercial photography too. Photographing people and products that are then used by the design studio for adverts. My work has taken me to photograph in the most unusual of places. #lovemyjob is a hash tag I often use on Twitter.

My Guarantee
Although I am a full time Press Photographer on a Regional Newspaper. I take my Freelance work very seriously, discretion and professionalism are key.

If you would like me to attend your Wedding or Birthday Party. Would like professional photographs of your family or maybe you need to build a public image, I am the photographer to help you do that.

I work well with children as I am a Nanny I have 6 wonderful Grandchildren.

Home life.

Home is in Fobbing, Essex. Where I live with my husband in our 100 year old cottage. We have lived here for over 30 years, it a lovely quiet little community. Our’s is very much a family home with paintings done by my young Grandchildren on the walls.
