Specialising in Commercial Photography

I work with creative people, amazing spaces & awesome brands.

As a photographer & stylist I work on location, photographing products in beautiful lifestyle scenes, capturing makers crafting a living from their sheds & studios, and photographing the interiors of shops, studios, restaurants and hotels.

From my bohemian studio in rural Rutland I also teach photography & styling online via my Photocraft® photography e-course to a global audience of creative people who make & sell lovely things.

If your business holds a story, I can help you to tell it!


Creating captivating imagery that tells the story of  a brand, product or service, working with both startup & heritage brands UK wide.

Art Direction

Working with established brands on styling and art direction to bring their imagery into the modern age, while remaining true to their roots.


Educating on the subject of product photography in a digital age through fun & friendly guest appearances at craft, blogging & business events around Europe.


Years Experience as a pro photographer

Go behind the scenes

 The reason for my recent radio silence on my personal account, Photo Boards! I'm over at @ljphotoboards a lot these days cooing over all the lovely customer photos of the boards in use. Pictured here are Drift, Bench, French Linen and Marble backdrop designs. The last 10 weeks since launch have been a blur but it's great to now see my fave backdrops out there as replicas being enjoyed by so many lovely people and don't they look so real! Very proud of my first manufactured product, been wanting to tick that one off for a while and the excitement is right up there with the memorable business moments of opening my studio, my gift shop, my coffee house, my e-course, my first workshop, and my first public speaking gig ❤ #photoboards #photobackdrops #ljphotoboards #entrepreneur #currentproject #dontstandstill #neverstoplearning #dwellinpossibility #lifeoffirsts  ❤ so much love for my new #boho jacket. It's so warm too I think I will be living in this in the office over the next few months!  Sunset walk with friends starting and finishing at the pub. #holidayseason #chilltime #reflections #reflecting
 Sunset on a very cold day ❄ #whereirun #rutland #mymoment #timetorelax  Foggy frosty calm ☁  Jack frost came along and left some crazy pretty art on our windows! ❄
 Beautiful and slightly dangerous looking pud. #lunchout #poshnosh  Lovely frosty leaves from this afternoon. I love this quiet down time between Christmas and New year, made even better by the low fog and frosty days allowing us to hide away from the world ❄  Lovely day for exploring a new walk from the village ☀ #boxingday
