#1 Kate Humble, ‘Thinking on my feet’ – the book that changed my life – honestly! Humour me guys – you know that I’m all about photographing in the great outdoors but I bet you didn’t know I’m also REALLY into books written about the great outdoors. I’m fixated with stories of climbing mountains, rewilding… Read More
We’re getting there! 100 miles walked out of 184… Yup, we were back on the river. It hadn’t been easy getting out – there were birthday parties and swimming lessons, grannies visiting and little ones with coughs and colds…but it’s always like that. With six children between us, the diary is always swamped. Trying to… Read More
OK, the Thames Path isn’t exactly the wilderness! It doesn’t compare to crossing the Bayuda Desert or ascending the peaks of Nepal, but this challenge has still pushed me and Victoria out of our comfort zone. There have been moments of tenuous map reading, the scaling of inhospitable fences after taking a wrong turn, cautious… Read More
Like a vase holding all the stalks together If you’ve been on Facebook or Instagram, you may have noticed, I’m now The Outdoor Studio. Why?

We just celebrated my little one’s 2nd birthday, and I was very conscious that I should mark the milestone with an official photoshoot. I took her outdoors – to the duck pond in Hartley Wintney – where there is a beautifully carved log to sit and climb on. It’s a very simple location: enough to… Read More
I’ve started walking the Thames river. Yup, all 184 miles of it, from it’s source in Kemble, near Cirencester to Woolwich, the steel barrier which protects London from the North Sea’s high tides and storm surges. OK sure, I’m not doing it in one go because it would take a solid 2 weeks to achieve… Read More
Things to bear in mind ahead of your outdoor photoshoot, based on my own experience I booked a professional photographer while on holiday last Easter and it was one of the best things I’ve done for our family. I switched from photographer to client. It was good for me to walk around in my customer’s… Read More
Sigh of relief, Spring is here (nearly!), I am really looking forward to taking my families outside again, it’s been a while! Outdoor photoshoots get the best out of me, they force me to be creative, to incorporate interesting backgrounds and shoot from different angles. Admittedly, outdoor photoshoots can be harder – I have to… Read More
For expats abroad, the grass isn’t always greener…or is it? The above statement is a genuine question, I have no concept of how many of us out there harbour this notion. Are there many of us who dream of moving abroad? Whilst I’m fairly content with the community and country I live in, I do… Read More

My experience of swimming with dolphins in Mauritius Before I get on my high horse about intrusive, mass tourism, let me be a total hypocrite and tell you how much I loved swimming with dolphins in Mauritius. Flippering through that warm, blue world of theirs, marvelling at their grace and friskiness, was unforgettable. It was… Read More
What was it like travelling to Mauritius with my 22-month old daughter Lucy? This Easter, we took our three children to the other side of the world, to the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. My husband works over there a few times a year, and so we were fortunate to stay in a… Read More
