Photoholic - Someone who is addicted to taking photos.

Joanne Thibodeau-photographer
I’m a French Canadian based in Cheshire. I moved to the UK in 2000 to be with my husband (we met on the internet before this was a normal thing to do!)

It was over twenty years ago that I discovered my passion for photography. While studying for a Marketing degree, part of the curriculum was a photography course. That is when I first got the bug for photography.

For the past 6 years I have been experimenting with different types of photography (landscape, macro, product photography,etc).

It was horse photography that really got me fired up when I adopted my horse Badger.  He has inspired me to work professionally with animals and people to create life long memories for my clients.

“As a perfectionist I only take on a limited number of commissions each week (3 to 5). As I always deliver the best quality end product I work 10-16 hours for each client’s commission.”

Random Facts About Me

  • I dislike talking on the phone and get very nervous (you are warned !)
  • When I don’t work, I like to go to the yard and relax with Badger.
