I qualified as a clinical photographer in 2009, and have worked at Bradford Teaching Hospitals as a senior clinical photographer since 2015. In 2018, I transferred onto the Bank register to provide cover when required.
After graduating from Northumbria University with a degree in Photography in 2004, I initially began my career as a portrait photographer before quickly changing paths to become a clinical photographer.
I began my clinical photography training at the Royal Bolton Hospital in 2006, before joining the Pennine Acute Trust in 2007, where I developed my skills photographing a huge variety of conditions. Upon qualifying in 2009, I gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Photography from Staffordshire University.
Once qualified my aim was to progress quickly in the profession, which I achieved in 2010 when I joined University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Trust as a senior clinical photographer, where I gained experience in ophthalmic diagnostic imaging.
In October 2015, I was successfully appointed as senior clinical photographer at Bradford Teaching Hospitals, and have since become a multi-award winning photographer with the Institute of Medical Illustrators. I am also a registered Medical Illustration Practitioner with the Academy for Healthcare Science.
My role is heavily involved in ophthalmic photography and ophthalmic research photography, where I am accredited for nearly a dozen UK and international research trials. As part of the research team, I carry out diagnostic imaging to detailed protocols and assist the chief photographer in the development and management of these trials.
In March 2018 I decided to pursue my dream of developing my family portrait photography business and now provide clinical photography cover on a Bank basis, as and when required.
