I have been working as a documentary and lifestyle photographer for 12 years and my work has been published in a wide range of media including The New York Times, The Guardian (UK), the British Journal of Photography and People Magazine. Whatever your needs - editorial, commercial or pet and people photography - I work to your brief to create compelling, high quality images that capture the essence of their subject. Whilst I have photographed many subjects from news happenings to cultural events and luxury hotels to designer handbags, it was living in India for nine years that ignited my passion for photographing animals. In my adopted home city of Bangalore alone there were more than 250,000 dogs living on the streets. This led to me begin documenting the daily lives of animals around the world through photography, from the pampered pooches at New York City's annual Westminster Dog Show to the 300+ dogs that live in a makeshift rescue shelter in Malaysia. It was this story, Hounds of Hope, that was recognized in the prestigious World Press Photo Awards 2014 and has been published and exhibited internationally. I am a member of the Association of Professional Photographers, the Royal Photographic Society and National Association of Press Photographers. I also work pro-bono for a number of animal shelters and am a member of HeARTs Speak, a global organization that pairs artists with local animal shelters to help raise their profile. I am a proud puppy momma to three beautiful India born dachshunds: Mitzie (9), Monty (9) and Minnie (5), each with their own Pet Passport and already residents of three continents. Prior to moving into photography, I worked for 20 years as a public relations and communications consultant in London and NYC. I currently live in Fauquier County, Virginia.
