A long-standing member of the AOP, this year Wendy won the Association's GOLD award for Fashion & Beauty.
Wendy is skilled in photographing people: models, celebrities, musicians, politicians, lifesavers, tattooed ladies, whole circus troupes, and also anyone who turns up at one of her impromptu pop-up studios. Clients book her for fashion, beauty, lingerie, lifestyle and portrait assignments with recent commissions from Avon, Dulux, Future Dreams Breast Cancer Charity, NBC, German Elle and Stella magazine.
Her personal work is equally varied and often published. "I want anyone viewing my photography to believe the images I create are real and show moments of truth, and if I've done a good job then hopefully they may be moved in some way too." By example 'The Long Goodbye' shows a Buddhist Nun saying farewell to her canine friend capturing a moment of genuine emotion, now shortlisted for the new Magnum Photos/BJP 'Portrait of Humanity' award. Previous commendations include AOP 'Best in Category' for portraiture; and work published by the National Portrait Gallery for the cover of their exhibition catalogue and poster campaign for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. the image featured here was chosen for the Portrait Salon'19 exhibition.
Wendy took part in the #209women initiative where new portraits of all the UK's female MPs were created by female photographers marking a centenary of women's suffrage; and she was nominated for the Royal Photographic Society's list of #HundredHeroines.
Aside from creating photography Wendy has been curator, judge and mentor for various photographic institutions and awards, and has recently been involved in establishing f22, the AOP women photographers group which aims to address gender inequality within the photographic industry.
Wendy is co-founder and contributing editor of contemporary print publication Perfect Bound magazine.
She is represented by A&R Creative agency London.
