Hello, I‘m Claire!

I used to be an Art Director at a leading advertising agency in London, and then I became a mum!

Years of dedication to brief-taking, interpretation and meticulous delivery. Glamorous photo-shoots with cutting edge photographers and famous models. Then the work really kicked in when I had four children – the most influential job I’ve ever done!

Both roles required creativity, planning and thinking on my feet. But, most importantly, compassion for what I was doing.

Now as a photographer, I combine these skills and believe strongly that the brief is the grounding for every good job – understanding what my clients need and guiding them to a successful solution. It’s not only important to take great photos but it matters what they say to my clients.

Whether it’s personal portraits or commercial portfolios, a picture tells a story. To this end I believe listening is as important as seeing.

Although my photos may show you my camera skills and creativity, never judge a book by its cover – the story is within. Please take time to read my testimonials as these are real experiences from real people. People with whom I have shared a journey and delivered a moment for them to have and to hold forever.
