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 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 small 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.

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

  • At the moment I'm loving listening to David Gray, The Big Moon and Arlo Paks

  • 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...

"Oh what a super star this lady is! I needed some photos for my website rebrand and had quite a clear vision for the style of work I wanted. True colours in a documentary style, atmospheric but simple. God did she nail it!

 

Clearly not only a brilliant artist and visual worker, but she also made the whole process super easy and relaxing.

 

I passionately hate being photographed so it was a tall order for me to 1. not hate the process of being photographed 2. like the final photos... and I am absolutely overjoyed with the MANY photos she took!! Seriously bravo, I can't recommend Celie enough. Incredible value for money."

"I needed some shots for my new website and was super nervous about it!

 

Celie put me at ease from her first email. She listened to my ideas and guided the shoot professionally and creatively in keeping with my branding.

 

Not only is she a brilliant photographer she is also a ray of sunshine to be around!"

"Can't recommend Celie enough for branding shoots. She took our brief and absolutely ran with it, we're thrilled with the end result. The photos we've received are exactly what we wanted. Couldn't be happier!"

"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 shots. I think I'll be using them a million times to sell in my business!"
