Hello! I’m Mel,  a photographer with over a decade of experience who’d love to give you the incredible photography experience that you’re hoping for. I’m self-taught and lend a sensitive and emotionally in tune level of attention to your special shoot.

Based in Chatteris (it’s in Cambridgeshire), I shoot all over the country and create elegant, beautiful images that you’ll treasure forever. I was recently awarded Qualified Status by The Guild of Photographers, so I can officially make promises of excellence when it comes to my work, which is nice!

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I just don’t think that’s true. While I’m neither a dog nor particularly old (depends who you’re comparing me to really…), I am constantly developing my style and technique to give my clients the set of images they’ve always dreamt of.

People come first in my approach. To be honest, it’d be odd if they didn’t! When you hire me you can expect a relaxed and friendly face on the day who’ll listen to you, take the time to understand what you want and deliver some stunning photographs.

I truly believe in the power of printed images. Digital is all well and good, but I’ll always encourage you to print your photos. Digital images can always be disastrously deleted by accident…

After all, looking at an image on an iPad is just not the same as looking at a beautifully framed image on a wall.

It’s pretty important to continually push your own boundaries and improve your craft. That’s why I make time to continue my training with highly respected tutors from the Guild of Photographers three or four times a year. It keeps my work fresh and my creative juices flowing. As well as training in all styles of people photography, I also update myself on various software packages, including Lightroom and Photoshop.

The Guild of Photographers offers a spectrum of qualifications: Qualified, Craftsman and Master Craftsman and are split into general photography and specialisations. While life isn’t all about accolades, it’s nice to show off what you can do and, in April 2018, I did just that and was awarded Qualified status by the GOP. I was chuffed, but I won’t be stopping there…
