It is not the CAMERA that takes the photo....it is the EYE
It is not the camera that FINDS the photo....it is the SOUL
I am a city based female photographer, living in the heart of Bristol but has just moved to along the coast of Carmarthenshire south wales . Having over 15years experience in the photographic world, I have established my own photography home studio set up. I am also experienced with shooting on location. I have always been an "out of the box" person and creativity runs in my blood. My passion for art and colours show through my photography and I love the freedom that holding a camera brings to me.
I was born and raised in the fabulous city of Bristol where I quickly learned that I enjoyed art and hands on projects. Visuals and colours have been more important to my life rather then words on a page. I found a deeper meaning in expressing myself through textures and throwing paint around which keeps the innocent child within me. Luck enough to now live on the sea front with stunning beaches just a step from my door.
When I became a mum I was still able to share my life with my son, Casey, through pictures, art and photos. My son was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 2years old and my whole life became visual time tables and photo charts. He too is very creative and expresses himself through play and art as he initially had no words. My daughter was born 4years after and together our little family grew through life.
Being 5ft 9, I found myself in the modelling world when my children were of school age. this allowed me to work on my own terms and hours that suited child care responsibility. I was able to express myself through my modelling and bring an edge to the photos and projects that I collaborated on. I embraced my modelling career and loved every day of it.
I went back to college and completed an Art and Design Diploma and this has really helped me in my photography career.
As My children became older, and on reaching 30, I decided to retire from modelling. I decided to still stay in the business and put everything I had learnt and loved into being on the other side of the lens. I bought myself a Canon 60D and started to teach myself how to be a photographer.
Over 8 years I haven't looked back, making a successful career in the photographic world and enjoy each day it brings to me. I shoot under the name BangTidy Photography.
Through photography I have the freedom to show my personality and creativity off within my work. The colours, textures and freedom as a female that I feel in life, I can now express through my photos.
I have been lucky enough to own and work in some photography studios around Bristol and have my own lighting set up which I now use a home studio here in Swansea/ Llanelli. Look forward to shooting and working with new people here in Wales now.
I also have worked as a self employed School photographer travelling around the UK. I have an intuitive feel for social media such as Instagram and Facebook and so I am able to create and provide images suited to those platforms.
I love my job and I'm lucky to be able to work shoot everyday. I hope you enjoy my portfolio and my work as much as I do.
