first started to photograph strong, sexy women during the early nineties.
My work was first featured in Skin Two magazine and Amateur Photographer
in 1997. This was shortly followed by my first solo exhibition entitled
"Lipstick & Lashes" at the f-stop gallery in Bath and later
that year at the Skin Two Rubber Ball.
I work within the world of portraiture, fetish, fashion and beauty. I
originally specialized in Black & White photography, using a very wide
range of techniques encompassing toning and hand tinting on fibre based
papers, though now I am equally at home with Colour Photography, which
feature strongly in my fashion and beauty work. Attention to detail is
very important to me, which stems from my experience as a make-up artist
and stylist. Clients include clothes and lingerie designers and
Most of my subjects are women. They are much more relaxed in front of a
camera, and much more willing to be photographed, so for me it seems the
obvious choice. As Iím a woman myself, I automatically have an empathy
with other woman, Iím not actually trying to pull them, so they can feel
relaxed and enjoy themselves in front of the camera. At the same time,
knowing what itís like to be a woman, and to feel sexy in tight or
revealing clothing helps.
I do photograph men as well, though not as much. Iím very select about
which men I would want to work with. There are only about three men that I
work with on a regular basis, and each of them are very different, though
all equally keen to be photographed.
My work has been published in a variety of magazines, such as Skin Two,
Marquis, Erotic Review, Front, GQ, Maxim, Amateur Photographer and
Practical Photography. Many of my images have been used as covers for
Virgin Books, and have also contributed to a series of books called Masterpieces
of Erotica, and Erotic Fantasy Photography by Carlton Books,
including one of the cover pictures.
