Photography was an early love of mine.
As a young child I had a little green plastic camera, a ‘Supasnaps’ SNAPPIT, that clipped over one side of a 126 35mm cartridge. The camera’s viewfinder was created by folding up two delicate plastic squares – it went everywhere with me!
At the same time as loving photography, I also had a passion for problem-solving and technical design. My family is made up of artists on my mother’s side and engineers on my dad’s.
I opted for the technical route and left University with a Masters degree in Mechanical Design Engineering. Following many happy years in industry working for a variety of large and small design and manufacturing companies, I needed a change. I needed to find a new balance, so at the start of 2018 I resigned from my first career and started out as a freelance photographer and we finally got a dog.
