WHERE I PHOTOGRAPH

I am based in Bollington, Cheshire and work across North-West England.

I work mostly with families in Wilmslow, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Alderley Edge. I have a portfolio which incorporates both the stunning rugged beauty of the nearby Peak District and many beautiful locations in towns and villages of East Cheshire. I also enjoy using locations which have a special meaning for families.
