Hi, I'm Jane and I'm based in East Lancashire.
Welcome to my website
My interest in photography spans over 30 years from when I received my first camera from my parents prior to a trip to visit relatives in New Zealand. In 2008 I purchased my very first DSLR, a Canon 400D with kit lens and started shooting landscapes. Since then I've not looked back. I upgraded my camera in 2010 to a Canon 7D and added some "L" lenses.
My grandson was only about 18 months old at this time so he was perfect model material ! I developed a passion for combining portrait photography with my love of the landscape and whenever possible I took photographs of people enjoying and interacting with the world around them. I developed my skills over the years, experimenting and learning how to recognise what was required to make a great portrait ( for me it's using natural light, preferably outdoors but I have produced some beautiful portraits using daylight through a large window ! - see the Gallery "Freddie & Harry" ) and soon my friends were asking me to take photographs of them and their families.
Over the years my photography has developed as has my interest in different genres of photography and I love nothing more than being creative. I put my heart and soul into working with people to produce images that really bring out the best in either them, their product or indeed both together.I encourage a relaxed, informal atmosphere where the client chooses their desired location, clothes and props, bring the kids , bring the pets - the more the merrier !
But seriously - it's all about you and what you want out of your session.
A photo shoot with me is a fun filled adventure where we can bounce ideas off each other and make some wonderful memories to treasure for a liftetime in print.Whether coastal or country , rural romanticism or urban grunge portraits or maybe you're a company who would like some images which portray your business to it's very best advantage.
Whether it's personal or commercial you can be sure that the shoot will be fun and unique.............
My packages are competitively priced and are fully customisable. I aim for a fun relaxed shoot, one which you should enjoy...it's not about formal posing (although if that's the type of image you're after then I'm more than happy to oblige) as I find that a relaxed, informal approach often brings about the best natural looking images, ones that you'd be happy to see on your wall.
Please feel free to browse the galleries to see what kind of photography I offer. If you see something you like and think I can capture some very precious memories for you, your partner, family , friends or pets please get in touch via the contact page.
