This is me; a creative with a business background, and a lover of good coffee and sustainable living. I am passionate about my job and working with people getting the right imagery for their projects.

I take images that improve engagement on any channel, website or platform. Well-lit and edited photos in line with your brand demonstrate professionalism and ensure trust in your brand.

I specialise in reportage, still, travel and architectural photography. I love creating an image that speaks to you.

So when I take photos out in the field or on location, I look at shapes, colours, light and composition to form an image that will be inviting and evoke emotion.

In 2001, I moved from the Netherlands to London and worked for one of the largest PR agencies in the world called Weber Shandwick.

Having experienced consultancy life, I moved to in-house roles and worked for the UK's largest commercial property company Landsec, an NHS trust and Regional Assembly.

After more than a decade, I set up my own business 'Create Communications' in Norfolk, UK. While working as a communications consultant, I have seen an increased need from clients for quality photos. So in 2015, I became a professional photographer and have never looked back. I love my job!

Clients I've worked with are in the property sector, dance, film industry, travel and business development.

Since 2020, I have become involved in film making and I am delighted to be the producer and behind the scenes photographer of two short films: Metres Apart and Losing Us

With my years of comms experience, a business background and quality photography, I offer a great service.

Lighting is key in taking representative images of properties, particularly inside. Choosing the right time of day and composition ensure impactful, crisp and inviting photos. I seek to get the best out of the space and create beautiful images.

Service includes:

  • interior and exterior photos of properties and developments

  • editing for online and/ or printed materials

  • delivered via Dropbox in a few days (24hr delivery is an option).

Reportage shoots

Each brief for commercial, artistic and behind the scenes photography has been different (eg retail, ministerial visit and film productions) and I have worked with the client to optimise time and deliver on their brief.
