A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
After graduating university with a First Class degree in Visual Communication, I worked as an In-House Photographer for multiple well-known brands before pursuing a career focusing on the style of Photography that I love.
What's that you're thinking? It's relaxed and friendly photography sessions in a beautiful location using natural light to provide you with images you can proudly share and use for all your business and personal needs.
My photographic background lies in documentary photography which lends itself very well to a natural, no-pressure style of portraiture. I have developed a quick eye for detail and great technical know-how which means I can capture the important moments just as they happen.
I have worked with many businesses to level up their website and social media platforms with creative, on brand, and eye catching content. Pop me an email for a chat about how we can use imagery to make the most of your marketing tools.
More recently I have delved into family, engagement and wedding photography which are possibly the most fun sessions I've ever had. Full of energy and character, I provide a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for you to really let go, and let me capture the real you.
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS
I love musicals! I grew up on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Sound of Music..thanks Mum!
I'm learning to play the ukulele...it's harder than it looks!
I love Lino printing and have started painting canvases which is scary but so exciting
I'm trying to grow my own vegetables at home with various success - any tips are greatly appreciated!
I get the same excitable energy from reading menus and visiting pet shops
I'm currently listening to David Gray, The Big Moon and Shakey Graves nearly every day
School of Rock is my all time favourite film - I know basically all the dialogue let alone the songs...
The Snail by Henri Matisse is probably my favourite piece of art. I remember seeing it in the Tate Modern for the first time and sat and stared at it for...well....a while
MY CLIENTS SAY...
"I contacted Celie asking for help with my product photography.
I knew I needed a more professional coherent look to my website and social media before reaching out to retailers and press.
From the outset she took the time to review and understand what I was looking for and made incredible suggestions that resulted in a bank of images that surpassed my expectations.
In less than a week the photography has already been successful landing me a spot at my coveted online market and a meeting with a big retail brand.
Celie was extremely professional yet also so relaxed I felt I was out shooting hand shots with a friend. Thank you so much Celie!"
LILY & ED LIVINGSTONE
"Celie photographed my wedding and it was a fantastic experience.
Normally I am very camera shy and self conscious but Celie put me and my husband (and the guests) at ease right away. She used a mixture of candid shots and set up ones and this has given us a fantastic range of photos to remember our special day with.
Cannot recommend her strongly enough.
For any needs in the future I will go straight to Celie!"
Psychotherapist & cocaoista
"Before the shoot Celie was inspirational in helping with the conception of the images for our weight loss website. She suggested a healthy picnic for our lifestyle shot and helped us find the perfect location.
She was totally on it with the weather and very flexible, picking the perfect shoot day. She made what could have been a stressful situation for us into such good fun - and we think the photos show this.
We would highly recommend working with Celie."
Teacher & Entrepreneur
"Working with Celie was really easy.
I was nervous and unaccustomed to being photographed, so I didn't know what to expect. Celie was good at explaining and making friends with everyone in the house, even the dog.
We had a fun time playing with different backdrops and poses and were delighted the sun was shining!
It's an art to create images that are simultaneously authentic but also with professional polish and I was really happy with the shot. I think I'll be using them a million times to sell in my business!"
