There’s something so special about portrait work, for me. I approach every portrait job with little expectation of how I’d like the finished product to look, my aim is to show the person how the are in that particular moment. Authentic and real.
Annie Atkins is a graphic designer for films, games and real life, as she puts it. Her work can be found in films like The Grand Budapest Hotel, Bridge of Spies, and Isle of Dogs.
I photographed Derek in his ceramics studio in East Belfast. I love the authenticity and stripped back nature of these photos. Like many people, he wasn’t the most comfortable in front of the camera, but his unassuming nature and quiet confidence shows through the portraits.
Surfboard shaper Tom Doidge-Harrison at his home and workshop in the remote countryside in County Clare. I was lucky enough to have some of my photos of Tom used by Patagonia, who Tom is a Surf Ambassador for.

My photographs of Connie accompanied her article in Turf & Grain Magazine Issue 4: Women.

My husband Gregg on our honeymoon in Dubrovnik.
I did say she was one of my favourite subjects, didn’t I?
