I am a freelance journalist and photographer, an ex-magazine editor with 20 years’ experience of the world of journalism, a field in which I’ve worked all over the country, from London to Inverness, Carlise and Cambridge.
I started out as a sub-editor – hence my pedantic attitude to grammar – training on the job in the press and publications office of the University of Bristol. I went on to work on glossy women’s magazines in London and then, when the wild began to call in the form of my husband-to-be, on local newspapers in the Highlands and Cumbria.
For four years until September 2011, when the recession and redundancy struck, I was editor of a local lifestyle magazine in
Cambridge. With a limited budget, I started taking pictures for the magazine myself and that was where my interest in photography began.
Now based in Cumbria, I offer a comprehensive editorial service (find out more here), and sell my images through a picture library.
