Hi, I'm Joanne and I am a photoholic

Photoholic – Someone who is addicted to taking photos.
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 (2 to 3). As I always deliver the best quality end product I invest a minimum of fifteen hours work for each client.”

Random Facts About Me
  • I have two cats, one guinea pig and a horse (we like going on fun rides). My horse Badger is on the left!
  • I attend a few photography workshops every year to continually improve.
  • I talk with a silly voice to my animals!
  • I used to be a software developer.
  • Unlike many photographers, I work full time as a photographer and rely purely on my earnings to make a living. That makes me appreciate each of my clients and strive to offer them my expertise and skills to a higher level.
  • I travel worldwide for my commissions, however most of them are located in Cheshire, UK.
  • 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.
  • I don’t like to be late so I’m always too early !
  • I eat to many biscuits !
If you have any questions or would like more information, it’s very simple just contact me !
