Crikey. So here we are, 9 days into 2015 already; I should probably make time to sit down and think about my goals for the next few months at some point.
As I sit here and reflect over the last year, I realise that 2014 was filled with shooting beautiful properties, meeting brave and amazing women and working with some lovely talented creative folk. I also had a photo of Olympic runner Helen Clitheroe, featured in Live Preston from a photoshoot we did back in 2013.
I met lots of new people through the wonderful world of video and I found myself undertaking a lot of freelance work. Filming medical conferences, tours of hospital departments and some courageous teens while they sea traversed, kayaked and built rafts were just a few of the projects Read more »Filed under: Boudoir, Fashion, Interior Photography, Photography, Property Photography, Video | Comments Off
It’s that time of year again where I get to look back and reflect on what was good, what was bad and what was really, really ugly. Truth be told, 2013 has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs. The first part of the year was quite difficult as I’d been struggling with my health, and although it was something I didn’t broadcast I was conscious that my business wasn’t moving as fast I wanted. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and unfortunately two doctors had missed it, so for three years my symptoms had been growing to the point where I just couldn’t function. I never realised that left untreated it could cause so many problems. I’d got to the point where I just thought I was suffering from stress and also generally being a bit mardy! When I was finally diagnosed it was like a huge weight had been lifted – mainly because I realised I wasn’t being mardy AND it was treatable. High fives all round! By the middle of the year when my medication had kicked in I was finally starting to feel like myself again. This was also the point where I started to push my business in a whole new direction.Filed under: Boudoir, Commercial, Engagement, Film & TV, Headshots, Interior Photography, Photography, Pre-Wedding, Property Photography, Theatre, Video, Weddings | Comments Off
Earlier in the year Ian and I had the pleasure of photographing Maltkiln Cottage. A lovely one bedroomed self-catering property at Crook Hall Farm in Ormskirk, the farm is owned by Cliff and Claire Martland. With a variety of animals on the farm including chickens that you can feed, you will fall in love with the place! You’ll be greeted by their three dogs (three different generations of the same family), who are as welcoming as Claire and Cliff. And if fishing is your thing, they also have fishing lakes available.Filed under: Commercial, Interior Photography, Photography, Property Photography | Comments Off
I’ve been quite lucky with some of the places I’ve shot this year. Here are some images from a recent property shoot in sunny Wales.
Brookway Lodge has 8 bedrooms, sleeps 18 people and comes complete with a games room and swimming pool. Anyone fancy a game of table tennis or a dip in the pool……?

Why is it when you need important documents you can never find them? Even though you know you always keep them in a certain place. Last Friday saw me and Ian turning the house upside down and going through everything at least 4 times each – we still didn’t find what we were looking for……Filed under: General, Personal, Photo A Day, Photography | Comments Off
One thing I don’t always blog about is commercial work. I’m not too sure why – perhaps because it seems quite far removed from my other work. But today, I thought I would share some of that work with you. I have a diploma in Interior Design, so it’s only fitting that property photography is a part of my portfolio. I get involved in various projects ranging from renovation work, to new build properties to luxury hotel rooms. Below is just a small selection.
