"Jackie is a renowned professional photographer, speaker, mentor and workshop host. Her striking photography, from portraits to fine art + commercial lifestyle photography has been published internationally"

I have been a 'Professional' Photographer for  18 years, starting my own business just over 12 years ago after living in Ireland + America where I worked on feature films and with renown fine art photographer, John Paul Caponigro. Shortly after I returned home in 2005 I won 'Photographer of the Year' along with 3 other portrait prizes and for many years consecutively exhibited my fine art photography around the globe. I've always had a thirst for knowledge and in 2009 attained my MA in Fashion Photography from LCF. I started teaching my own photography workshops along with working in adult eduction and then moving in to Sixth Form College and gained  my certificate in teaching whilst I worked with the most  amazing 16 - 19year olds. I now host One day, 1-2-1 photography workshops 'Getting to grips with your camera' for beginners + improvers.
