#studiomansionhouse – one year on !

I have signed the lease one year ago and it was around this time, that I was settling dust paint things white and wondered what to do with the space- as potential was plentyfold!

And a magical journey it has been, with many of surprises – as you would expect of a start up business with ethical, curious and creative ambitions and intentions.

It’s been magical to keep faith an open mind – well and an open door at times; hoping that things will pan out and people will appreciate the work that I do and can do. As the landscape of the  photography industry is changing, day by day, so is my business.

As I do not want to give up on creating a sustainable enterprise and freelancers lifestyle, as there were too many moments where people have benefited from special moments shared.

Should it be in a Photography session, a topical debate, in a workshops, a photosurgery session, volunteering on projects or just a visit to explore some project ideas. It has been full of adventures and amazing what people brought to me to make me see the need for creativity and a life a little less ordinary.


It has been full of adventures (achhemm did I mean challenges !??)  and amazing to see what people brought to me on their visits to studiomansionhouse (besides assignments and work)  to make me see the need for creativity and a life a little less ordinary.

Growing as an artist (surrounded by plenty of other talented artist at the Mansion) I am seeing my work grow above and beyond just taking a picture, pressing a button…; but to offer the experience of realizing what was once just thought of.

Thinking outside the box and with no criticism or judgment to perhaps discover something different about ones identity or at least to create a memory to last forever thereafter.


The creative process gotta be my favourite thing; to see things fall into place with the right intention. Happy to say that I can utilize that when I work in costumes/theatre or watch others get it right on film-sets, when on duty as supporting artist.

But all of this would not mean anything without *you* … 🙂


Stay tuned for events, workshops or just book yourself in for a session and let’s see what we can realize for you.

Come and see me at the Photosurgery meet-up, every wednesday evening…just drop me an email to secure a space and biscuit. 😉


Dare dreaming – but do not forget to realize it too!




#presspackage -Studio Photography

Sharing some of the experiences and shoots that took place at #studiomansionhouse (as there have been plenty of shoots already just this year), I would like to highlight the importance of a studio session:

It is the comfort and opportunity a good studio session offer: A most practical purpose for some of the pictures I take, is the official sharing of oneself for presspackage and media, online or website.

And as much as it may seem boring (to some) to just have a white box offered, with some fancy light (why should you pay for that !?) it is the comfort privacy of the place, the chilling or banging tunes, the focus and feedback,the views and vibes, the chat and tea in between, that allows to create a nice selection and versions of the natural you – in front of the lens.

And in the selfie generation that we are in and with many people that may own a camera, I would like to think that my interpersonal skills, or just the presence of a professional photographer; gets you to project and let’s you shine at your best.

It is the feedback the collaboration and team work in these session that excites me the most. To eventually choose the one simple image to represent all that there is about you – with ease confidence and clean cut – but yet just naturally you.


Let me help you make this statement with your own personal photography session, styling and tea included- at affordable prices. Available with studio access 7 days a week 😉

Love & Light …with heaps of patience.

COGITATION – Exhibition #studiomansionhouse


Here we are 2018 and I am pondering over how last year finished and the new year begun – all guns blazing. And developments are to be found left right and centre, but for now let’s look around us.

As many know my creative home with office and studio has not just given me the space to grow and develop it has also given  me amble situations to be inspired and to inspire.

This very view, walks and the trees have inspired my new artwork and conception  (so far only to be seen offline!) a series that I named ‘Cogitation’ .

cogitation print

Only last month (so last year, right !?!) have we come together as a collective and most of us Mansion artists have hung some work to be displayed for the Christmas celebrations and events.

Artists at the Mansion

I choose  portrait style images that have been immortalized in fine giclee prints and been brought into the material 3 dimensional world and graced these very walls of the Mansion.

And yes it was harder to get ’em up than you could imagine.

exhibition hanging

Well this was so very last year and my portfolio, sketch book, ideas and inspiration boards have grown and dare I mention my diary is nicely filling up with exciting assignments and happenings.

Still if you feel the need to contemplate and be pictured, creating an image of you that perhaps touches on a little bit more than just the surface :

Please contact me and book your visit at the Mansion, even if it is for just an informal visit and cuppa tea… Or let me know if you want to join my mailing list for the release and sharing of some of more artwork (Yep facebook is not gonna have those images anytime soon) .

You won’t forget or regret the experience.Portrait femme
