Telling your story is my passion
My aim is to make those looking feel they were there!
CREATING PHOTOS NOT JUST TAKING PICTURES..
Got my first 35mm film camera at 17 and now FORTY years later I have an ever expanding DSLR camera and lens collection, plus a carry-a-bout Mirrorless that fits in my bag. Since that day a growing passion for capturing those candid real moments in life not posed perfect false smiles. Yes I do take some to keep the Great-Aunt, Nannas, etc happy but then my sessions are a lifestyle approach in a comfortable environment which suits YOU! What makes you you? Long walks with the dog in the park, dancing, BBQ`s, home cooking perhaps even down the pub!
Coming from a wildlife background (which I still shoot for fun) I have had a diverse photographic journey over the years. It wasn`t until I realised to follow my own style and not be trapped by being labelled a wedding or an erotica tog that I`m going to do things MY way to get the best and create awesome results. SO I`M A LIFESTYLE AND BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER
What`s the point of doing one genre and becoming stifled - no getting stagnant with me as my weeks are so varied - one day I`ll be birdwatching, chasing dragonflies along a lakeside for me then capturing chaos of kids and dogs rushing around then onto a boudoir model shoot for work I love too
It`s an amazing time to be me so come along it`s usually fun and
always ends up with gorgeous photos...
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we never see ourselves as others do - I have an eye for posing you in a way that shows off your best assets and hides the less flattering bits. With me it`s the subtle illusion rather than revealing all... let`s you rock with what you`ve got and stop sadly looking back at old photos of you - empower yourself in ten years time you`ll surely be impressed!
With my boudoir style subjects can be anonymous if they desire OR have any tattoos, piercings, yep even faces - crisply captured.
Everyone needs something different and so not to waste your time here is what I DON`T do...
Firstly, I`m never a loud in your face type of person - more of patient, quiet, ninja-like presence blending in though I admit I`m much bossier with my cameras at my side!
Hopefully my work speaks for itself...
I will NEVER do those "congratulations you`ve won a free portrait session contests" shooting you, letting you have one 8x10 and then charging ludicrous prices for items that weren`t included in offer!
YOU will get photos as WE arranged - any further products can be ordered directly
I REALLY don`t do any "hard sell" like that as hate when its tried on me...really have better things to do with my time too, lol!
I`d MUCH rather be out taking more photos...
I love a candid "real" approach to ALL my photography - so after a documentary style that is usually fun to do whilst we create superb wall art.
What is important to YOU in your pictures? I endeavour to create the pictures that you would be proud to display on your wall and your social media too. To be honest if your pictures are really not important to you then I`m definitely not the tog for you - no matter what the event I will always do my best - every photo matters to me
My first shoot with Dawn, a location shoot and what a fabulous shoot it was. Such a great photographer. Was so at ease with her and great sense of humour. (Rachel)
She has such a great energy and flow to how she works. As a person utterly hilarious, likes to be different, bold and fun! (Amber)
She has a fabulous sense of humour that had me giggling throughout the shoot, the angles she moves into are really cool and her way around the camera is ever so perfect! (Jezebelle)
First shoot with Dawn and her partner Martin yesterday. Arrangements went very smoothly and they'd done a great job scouting outdoor locations and acquiring some cool props. Both were full of ideas and enthusiasm and very easy to get along with. I have no hesitation in recommending them (Mick)
I met Dawn and her lovely photographer husband Martin, and wow what a fantastic day we had. Dawn and Martin were an absolute joy to work with, making me feel completely at ease from the onset (Junea)
