“Photographing people is 90% psychology and 10% technology” – Annabel Williams

I decided long ago that the technical stuff was not for me

I shoot from the heart, I work emotionally and I really understand how people feel when they are being photographed.

You don’t need to be technical to take great pictures of people – in fact, I firmly believe it’s better if you’re not!

Don’t be afraid to email me or talk to me on Facebook – I’d love to hear from you!

Photographing people has been a huge part of my life for the past 25 years.

I still love to take photos, but am now moving into different areas (Nutrition and Health actually!). However this website will still be here because I love to share my experience and knowledge with budding new photographers. I can guarantee I’ve been through most of the ups and downs of being a creative person – just like you!
