Photography

I’ve worked as a professional photographer for ten years, working for newspapers, magazines and new media. I can do creative PR photography to help your product or service stand out. I can shoot your products in the studio for your website and I also do weddings!

Design

I do all kinds of graphic design – logos, illustration, flyers, ads, computer- or hand-drawn, based on your brief or I’ll come up with some great ideas for you.

Copywriting

I’ve qualifications in scriptwriting and digital media, have written newspaper articles and social media content for businesses. I’m witty and fast and I can come up with marketing communication that will work rather than irritate!
