I live by the sea near my original hometown Portsmouth – the UK’s only island city! (That makes it sound way better than it really is.) When I say I’m ‘near Portsmouth’, I’m actually over the water on the more peaceful Isle of Wight.
Originally I wanted to be an actress but decided against going to drama school after I developed stage fright. Towards the end of quite a long period as a carer for a family member, I started blogging and studying photography.
After gaining degrees from Durham University and the Open University, I passed the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) exam in Reporting, and earned the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) Certificate in Photography.
I love bringing a character to life through the lens – it gives my inner actress a chance to shine. I hope my work entertains!
