I find cemeteries fascinating; they are filled with beautiful monuments and history. Sadly many of the older graves are crumbling; burial space is running out and being reclaimed by local authorities or nature. In 2006 I started the Silent Cities Project - taking photographs of many of these amazing memorials and becoming involved in restoration in order to help preserve some of our heritage so future generations can see what a Victorian cemetery looked like. As an author and freelance journalist I write for national newspapers and magazines about cemeteries, grave symbolism and the paranormal. I also research and advise on these subjects for TV and have also produced my own Silent Cities series of books.
My photography is used for book and album covers and advertising. I have a stock library of thousands of Gothic, angel and original Victorian prints, plus other types of more general photography including animals, birds, urban, graffiti and architecture. All photographs on this site are low resolution; library images are full size and can be e mailed. Photographic commissions also undertaken.
I am a Victorian-style actress and model available for personal appearances, events, etc. I can provide my own Victorian costumes if required (if the job or publication is not for charity or a non-profit organisation, fees may apply.)
I conduct paranormal investigations which are carried out in a relaxed manner. There is nothing secret and you can participate as much or little as you wish and ask any questions.
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.
