I have locked down all of my workshops , photoshoots and bookings as of Monday March 16th, due to my chronic asthma and caring for my 81 year old mother, I am now on self imposed isolation. Please limit your own movements and keep yourself and your loved ones safe!
Any workshop bookings will be contacted 2 weeks prior to the original date and offered either a FULL refund, or to be invited a priority transfer to the workshop of their choice once restrictions are lifted.
I will be using my time productively by catching up on editing, creating some new photoshoot halters, producing both Photoshop and Lightroom videos as a free gesture to help keep us all productive and occupied.
My income is now £0, so to attempt to enable me to pay my utility bills. I am offering the sale of an exclusive collection of prints at below market price. This in turn will allow my lovely printer a trickle of income to help him pay his bills also. The self employed have been hit very badly by the crash in business, and if we hope to be able to rebuild afterwards, we need to think about survival and positive mindsets now.
Based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, I have been a keen photographer since my teenage years, my early goals as a photographer were to create clean, sharp images to use as references for my career as a Fine Artist...... How far I have moved away from this starting point!
Over the last 10 years the images I take are being seen as 'art' in their own right; the capture of light, the narrative, the staging, makeup and styling, compositions and now, editing effects and Photoshop image manipulation creating final pieces that have a more magical quality. In this way I feel I am combining my skill as a traditional painter with my passion of photography and using Photoshop to blend the two together creating an original vision.......
My horse obsession often comes to the fore; a horse owner since my childhood has led to competing, judging, breeding and breaking-in horses as well as a stint as a lead-rein mum! Then equine painter and equine photographer, I also make my own halters and create ornate leatherwork.
I love to take an idea from conception, put my twist on the styling and editing and then present my unique vision as wall art, album collections or simply memories to treasure...
