About Debra

My father gave me a Nikon FG when I was about 14 years old and I have been taking photos ever since! I photograph children, families, corporate photos and larger, panoramic portraits. The family photos are mostly naturalistic - I love the joy children exhibit when they are feeling at ease: in the park, at home, in the garden.

Based in North London, I live with my husband and two kids and spending as much time as I can with them whilst finding time to cook and jog in the area. On photoshoots, we go to Highgate Woods or to the Heath and Kenwood. I have a set-up space at home for studio images, so can offer backdrops if that’s what you’d like!

As well as working as a photographer, in a previous career I've been an editor for HarperCollins, have worked as a freelance editor on a number of art books and have organised international exhibitions for the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, France.
