I specialise in wedding and events photography, landscape photography workshops, writing, public speaking, and a wide range of commercial photography assignments. I conduct myself professionally, am very reliable and am also fully insured.

A bit about me…
I was born in Perth in 1985 and spent my childhood holidays caravanning throughout Scotland; walking, cycling and island hopping. I picked up my first camera when I was six years old and have never looked back. My love of writing has developed more recently but the foundations were there from a young age, as I always enjoyed writing short stories and I have kept journals for many years.
I fulfilled a lifelong ambition in 2013 when I re-located from the Central Belt to the Black Isle near Inverness with my husband Mark. In my spare time, I love nothing more than exploring the Highlands and Islands, walking, cycling, camping and caravanning, reading, learning Scottish Gaelic and enjoying the antics of my guinea pigs!
I’ve enjoyed a wide range of successes over the years, with my career highlights to date including being featured on the prime time BBC show Countryfile and writing a regular column for the popular outdoor activities website, Walkhighlands.
Landscape photography is my favourite pastime but I’m thrilled to have turned a passion into a profession, and have branched out into many other avenues, with wedding photography and commercial work now occupying most of my time, in addition to landscape photography workshops.
