I began my career as a medical photographer at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust six months after graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Photography in 2008.
I was awarded a scholarship from the Institute of Medical Illustrators to undertake a postgraduate certificate in Clinical Photography at Staffordshire University, which I completed while I held a trainee post at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.
I qualified as a clinical photographer in 2012 and, after gaining several years’ experience, I’m now a multi-award-winning photographer and have been enjoying my current role as a senior clinical photographer at Bradford Teaching Hospitals since July 2016.
I’m professionally registered on the Academy for Healthcare Science register as a qualified Medical Illustration practitioner. Most recently I have become certified to undertake expert diagnostic imaging for several national and international ophthalmic clinical research trials, which is an integral part of what the team do here at Bradford.
During my career I’ve photographed a hugely diverse range of surgical and medical conditions (not to mention various parts of the anatomy!), so not a lot fazes me as a result. You name it and I’ve photographed it!
