Some people think I have the coolest job ever - or the strangest! I find cemeteries fascinating; they are filled with beautiful monuments and so much history. I‘ve always enjoyed photography but my obsession with cemeteries began as a young child when I visited family member’s graves with my parents. Whilst the adults arranged flowers I would wander off and look in amazement at all the angels, doves and crosses. Sadly many graves are crumbling; burial space is running out and graveyards are being reclaimed by local authorities or nature. In 2006 I set up the Silent Cities Project, taking photographs of many amazing memorials and I also became involved in their restoration. As an author and freelance journalist, I write for national newspapers and magazines about places of eternal rest and grave symbolism and have produced my own Silent Cities series of books.
My photography is used for book, album covers and advertising. I have a stock library of thousands of prints, plus other types of general photography including animals, birds, graffiti, abandoned buildings and architecture. I can also be booked for private photographic assignments.
I am a Victorian-style actress and model available for personal appearances, events, etc. I can provide my own Victorian style costumes if required (if the job or publication is not for charity or a non-profit organisation, fees may apply.)
As ‘Ink Loving Memory’ I advise on memorial tattoos and tattoo design and can supply photos for artwork.
Please e mail for further details, bookings, interviews or photography.
