*Announcement May 2014*
I'm super excited to announce that I'm setting up a brand new studio in partnership with a fabulous photographer and friend which is based at Billing Aquadrome, on market street within the holiday park.
Were open from June 8th at our charity event!
I am now on http://northantsphotography.co.uk/ and facebook under www.fb.com/northantsprophotography as I now have a joint venture and studio with Pro Photographer Mandy Donneky! Hurrah.
I'm a former Professional Press Photographer with Johnston Press plc for 8 years plus and am now a full time freelance photographer running my own business covering everything from family home shoots (with mini studio set up) to formal studio shoots in a studio based in Milton Malsor and everything in between!
I shoot with a professional Nikon D4 camera and professional lenses only and pride myself in producing high quality images suitable for the smallest and largest of demands.
I produce a quick turnaround for all comissions and often have wedding packages back to the couple withing two weeks of the event, press and PR jobs within 24 hours and home/family shoots within a week all edited and archived.
