Describe how you got into photography.
I started my photographic career by photographing my children and their ponies. Which I did for many years. I soon found my real passion was photographing Weddings. I love nothing more than freezing moments in time.
Back in 1995 was given the opportunity to photograph for TA1 Motorsport. I was employed as a traveling photographer which involved traveling to all of the Race tracks in the U.K. My photographs were used in Race Car Magazines. Which was a fabulous job my weekends were free so I could follow my passion for Wedding Photography.
In 2007 I started to work as a Senior Photographer for a Regional Newspaper during which time I photographed all members of the Royal Family and photographed lots of things most photographers don't get the opportunity to photograph. My photographic journey has taught me to stay calm when others may be panicking.
