My experience

With over 10 years of experience in the photography and classical arts industry, I have developed my career on the trust and relationships I build with my clients. My work has taken me all over the world, from my home in Ireland, to London, Berlin, Paris, New York and more.

My classical music background has also played a huge part in my photography. Having originally set out as a soprano and teacher of Music and English, this foundation of knowledge has hugely benefited my work. My enhanced understanding of an artist’s techniques, process and expectations allows me to deliver imagery that is not only visually on point, but stylistically authentic.
