I generally feel infallible behind the camera! But when Simba the lion roared his deafening roar, shook his majestic mane and then covered me with raw horse meat saliva, I began to feel the reality of the situation!  Diane, who started work as the receptionist for Yorkshire Wildlife Park, now works as a lion keeper and is featured in Fabulous magazines ‘It happened to me’.
Single? – why not book yourself a mini break at Butlins and hope to meet the love of your life.  It worked for Freda and Dennis who are still happy together after 61 years.  Ahhh..  A lovely shoot for S Magazine.
I photographed Emily and her naturally gorgeous baby girl Maddie for Femail.  Emily has controversially announced that she is saving money in case Maddie wants to have cosmetic surgery and follow her into a glamour modelling ‘career’.

Well – who needs a uni fund anyway?!

A fun shoot now with Emmerdale’s Gaynor Faye for S Magazine’s ‘Me and my handbag’ feature.  What an excuse to be nosy!  See the full article here.
Hayley Taylor (The Fairy Job Mother) stars in Woman magazine’s weight loss feature.  Hayley was a pleasure to photograph and brought along lots of great outfits to show off her new figure.
Jenny and husband Stephen very sadly lost their middle child Lucas to Spinal Muscular Atrophy at only four months old.  SMA is the leading genetic cause of death in young children and Jenny and Stephen are keen to raise awareness of the condition. Read their story in S Magazine by clicking here.
Lastly, at this BBC shoot Tony Livesy couldn’t bear to be left out of the 5 live bump club pics so joined in sporting his own football baby – bless.

Just to remind you all that I am currently available Wednesdays through to Sundays until September when my availability goes back to normal and I would love to hear from you.

Hello everyone, I hope you are well and coping with all the challenges.  Like almost all photographers and many self employed professions, my work dried up just before lockdown.  I took on the new role of homeschooling my two children, caught up on all my admin and tried to stay sane.

Of course these features take about 2 hour's rather than 10 minutes to shoot. Joe was lovely and patient, allowing me to shoot several different options, so the picture editor had plenty of choice.
