Service Description

I have had a very successful 20 year career in the Health and Beauty industry as a freelancer and then as a salon owner, mainly based in London, UK. I have travelled extensively throughout my childhood and adult life.

I am currently based on the beautiful East Coast of Australia where I work mainly as a yoga teacher and photographer. I write regularly on my specialist subjects and photograph several times a week.

I have strong business skills, having owned and managed a salon with a permanent staff of five for many years.

Several years ago I moved overseas to Australia with my young family and now work solely as a professional freelancer, writing, teaching yoga and practicing my therapies alongside completing my degree.

I can turn my hand to anything in the health, beauty and alternative fields.

I approach every job with professionalism and a positive attitude.

I only bid on jobs that I have a genuine interest in.

My photography services include:
- Travel images of South East Queensland
- Landscapes
- Real Estate
- Product Photography
- FIne Art Photography
- Client projects as required.

Please note that my hourly rate for photography starts at $100 per hour with each photography project to be negotiated individually with the client with respect to the number of images required and any editing needs.


My writing services include:
- Articles
- Product reviews
- Marketing copy
- Web copy
- Yoga instruction
- Guided meditations
- Aromatherapy
- Essential Oil...
