Behind The Scenes

    .  .     

Welcome to my website and to my little studio of happiness powered by renewable energy where I love to create gifts and help guests develop their photography skills. 

Whether it's helping you to touch up some older black and white photos, scan slides or film and turn them into prints and gifts, I absolutely love helping you to make your images look the best they can be.


Whether it's printing your photos onto canvas using the highest quality products, or handmaking them onto a variety of personalised photo gifts, there's nothing that makes me happier than seeing happy customers.  There's also the opportunity to browse a large selection of wildlife, local and underwater images which are available as Gift Cards, Prints, Canvases and many more other gift ideas.

I've always been passionate about sustainability and am proud to offer every gift packaged in plastic-free and compostable packaging, Forest Sustainable Stretcher Bars as well as Vegan stickers.  Trees are also replanted here in Dorset with purchases and when I'm not here, you will find me either litter picking on our local beaches or helping cover hospital shortages.

All of my products come with a 100% happiness guarantee, I will always take the time to carefully look over each order before making it, to ensure that it will look the very best it can be.

I feel incredibly lucky to have won a number of awards for my photography work (you can see one of my images above being introduced by Anita Rani from BBC's Countryfile at The Savoy Hotel in London) as well as writing the 5th best selling book on Amazon UK on underwater photography (14th world best seller).  You can see more of my photography work at my other site - 

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to helping you very soon.
