Brief Summary
I have been a professional photographer for the last twenty eight years and I am extremely creative and conceptual, having huge creative input into the projects I undertake, I can work without art direction, have excellent lighting skills and have proved I have the quality and stamina to take on any job. I am very efficient, always fulfill the brief and never exceed the budget.

I have sourced, renovated and managed ten studios, some for hire also, and created Exposure Gallery and Photospace Training Centre, MPL and now the MD-M modular system which is proving very popular.

Apart from a vast portfolio of bespoke and creative photography, and the creation of many photographs for use as stock images, I have taught, created briefs, exhibited myself and others and hence have a very full and rounded experience of photography.

I am passionate about photography and everything surrounding the visual language which it so well represents.

Awards and Recognition
Kelly - Copywriter for Harvey Nichols said "Moggy usually has serious creative input on projects, often helping with the original concepts, and can turn a very ordinary product into something very special. Her photography is notable for its precision, tactile qualities and deft touches of visual humour. Regular clients have grown used to her ability to conceptualise a shoot without a formal brief and appreciate the benefits of her innovative creative talent and formidable attention to detail.

Chris May Asprey - "Moggy these are the sparkliest Diamonds I've ever seen on film"
