About

One of 'the best outdoor photographers working in the UK today', a 'landscape master' Outdoor Photography Magazine June 2016


Rachael grew up on the south coast of England. Her first career was as a solicitor in the City of London. During the City years, Rachael's friends and colleagues were used to seeing her return from trips with bags full of exposed film; the developing sometimes cost more than the trip! In 2008, she converted to digital and she says that is when the obsession really set in. In 2000, Rachael left her City career and, after obtaining two more degrees, she now works full-time on her photography.

Much of Rachael's early childhood was spent at sea. This has left her with a life-long fascination for the ocean in all its forms, but especially in stormy weather. Rachael travels widely for her photographs but retains a special fondness for the South of England and many of her images are created there. For Rachael, nothing beats a day on an empty shore, the wilder the weather the better, and this is reflected in her work.

Rachael's photographs have been published in books and both print and online magazines, have been exhibited widely in the UK as well as Barcelona and New York, and appear in private collections in the UK and USA. She is owner of f11 Workshops, providing photography day workshops in the South of England and runs residential photography workshops for international, fine art photography business, Ocean Capture. Rachael is in demand as a public speaker and writes for photography magazines. A member of Parhelion Group.
