What I do

I use natural light in natural settings, working with what I find to visualise, style & create beautiful and memorable images . The form and the content work in harmony.

I have worked extensively in fashion, food and fine art and specialise in unique, contemporary portraiture for private and commercial commissions.

I also produce carefully tailored design work and copy-writing for both online and printed brochures.

Blunderbuss Studio is my home for these varying strands.
