Hi, I'm Catherine & I abso-bloomin'-lutely LOVE being creative, choosing a camera to 'paint with light', watching & waiting for those 'in-between' moments. I consider myself a creative, contemporary, portrait photographer. I'm based in the beautiful North East of England on the outskirts of Newcastle-upon-Tyne surrounded by fantastic urban landscapes & gorgeous beaches.

Welcome to all that is CBP - enjoy & don't hesitate to get in touch if there's anything you need.

My style

I'm a creative, natural, organic, 'in the moment' photographer, always responding to YOU, to the environment, to the light, creating as I go & working with everything around me that inspires me & gives YOU something that is truly unique & personal.

It's an artful process - it's all about making memories  / keepsakes & creating images worthy of printing LARGE to adorn & transform your beautiful spaces: a talking point with that 'wow' factor. 

I work with you to create something that 'fits' YOU, YOUR loved ones, YOUR family, YOUR environment & YOUR lifestyle.

It's all about YOU, YOUR STORY, nothing more, nothing less!

I'm totally up for conceptual art, designing something a little different, of collaborative opportunities too: do just shout!

I believe in 'story telling' & documenting emotion: I want you to FEEL something when you see my work; whether it's an image of a woodland, the beach, a stone, a pet, you, your loved one, your family, your children, your wedding, your business .....

It's always a fun experience & be prepared for me to get everyone shooting some moves, to have fun, to play, to jump. 

There's just something about simplifying an image into black & white that 'speaks' to me: I shoot colour too though!

Every shoot is different - very relaxed, natural & fun fun fun ... there's no point otherwise is there really ???     ** for examples of my work click here **

A few things you might like to know about me ...

* I love kicking autumn leaves, woodland walks, generally acting way too young for my age!  

* I love to jump in puddles - I'm waterproof aren't I ?

* Jumping & pulling some serious shapes is almost compulsory when in the studio or out on a shoot  & if you're up for it, then so am I !

* I have a thing about hair flicking !

* My 'happy place' is the coast, the sandy beaches, taking off my shoes, enjoying the surf, beach-combing, immersing myself in the fabulous view ...

* I collect sea glass & one day I'll create a piece of art with it all ...

* I live in one of most beautiful & friendly places in the UK

* I'm proud to call myself an 'adopted Geordie!'
