Lady Grimdark

Bath GB April 2015
I worked in the TV post production industry for 10 years as a post producer, working on TV documentaries, entertainment shows and music videos. I retrained as photographer over 8 years ago specialising mainly in portraiture. I draw inspiration for portraits from a diverse group of portrait and fashion photographers: David Bailey, Mary McCartney, Sally Mann, Dorothy Wilding, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Liebowitz and Mary Ellen Mark.

I shoot both in the studio and on location. Recent and expanding work has come in the form of commissioned portraits for authors such as Chris Cleave, Sarah Pinborough, Paul Cornell, Adam Christopher and Joe Abercrombie.

In my spare time, I create monograph portrait series. Finished projects include "Meet the Steampunks" - focusing on Cosplayers who dress as Steampunks; "Age Becomes Her" - a series investigating the beauty of women who are 40+ without the need to photoshop out their lines and wrinkles. I am currently working on a series called "Shooting the Undead" - Dorothea Lange Depression style portraits of zombies who have retained some muscle memory.
