About Barbara

I have been a professional photographer since 2013, and my work spans multiple genres, all involving capturing people. In their personal life, their work environment, in a studio for a creative idea… perhaps even in ways they may not have seen themselves before. I tread the borders between applied and creative photography, never quite satisfied with just one or the other.

From campaigns for Sony PlayStation to impromptu street portraits across the continent, my images have been exhibited globally including in the UK Houses of Parliament and Galerie Joseph Le Marais in Paris; my book, Faces of Shoreditch, has been published by Amberley Books; and my work has been featured in multiple media including Digital Photographer magazine, FUJILOVE magazine, and others.

I was a judge of the [Focus] on Photography 2022 exhibition at the Heseltine Gallery, and give yearly guest talks to A-Level Photography students at a local school, as I firmly believe in fostering creativity and passing on our knowledge to the next generation. I am also a volunteer Remember My Baby photographer.

My goal is to help everyone realise the importance of photographs as precious memories and art for the long term, not just for ourselves but for our children and extended family.

I’m based in Banbury, Oxfordshire, and cover the Cotswolds, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, London and beyond, all over the country and even abroad, should you like to fly me out. To book your complimentary, no-obligation discovery call, just send me a message.
