I specialise in lifestyle, children and families, weddings and commercial work and I am an active member of the Guild of Photographers. I also offer beginners training courses to amateur photographers wanting to get the most out of their digital cameras.
A big welcome and thank you for dropping by, my name is Barbara and I'm a Wiltshire-based professional photographer.
My journey started 20 years ago when I joined the RAF as a single parent. I worked my way through their basic military training programme and then threw myself into their highly intensive photography programme. This gave me a solid grounding on the science of photography, lighting and trusting my instinct to get the shot when it mattered most. I spent five years serving within the RAF which has taught me so much about myself and which culminated in me meeting, falling in love and marrying my soul mate too.
I left the RAF and moved on to complete my Masters Degree in Photographic Studies which unleashed the creativity and thorough understanding of the narrative of imagery; this has led me to where I am today - a successful Salisbury business woman, proud mum and devoted wife.
With a core passion for photographing life and preserving precious moments, I know these are treasured dearly by my clients. I also focus intently on commercial photography and am frequently in London, Herefordshire, Hampshire, Dorest and Berkshire where I help corporate clients and start-ups to kick-start their business' visual presence with relevant, on brand imagery.
It's always difficult to put into words how photography is a part of my world; it's something I think about knowingly and tactically all of the time, I see every moment as a picture waiting to happen. I'm a true romantic at heart and see art and beauty wherever I go. I love to create visual narrative and have been told I have a fine eye and talent for creating the extraordinary from the ordinary.
