Suzy is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to digital imagery. She is confident and highly proficient in all aspects of her craft. Although she is technically proficient, she delivers programmes that are student-centred and differentiates between the specific level of each student. Her collaborative approach produces great results with students and clients alike. It is not just the technical aspects that make her an innovative photographer: it is the art of capturing that perfect image, of reinterpreting or re-imagining her subject, that evokes an undeniable and often childlike passion.
Suzy is fascinated by narrative as well as image. She is not interested in straightforward, rigid photography. She is an artist, producing original and inspiring images that reflect both her imagination as well as her technical prowess. Her use of complimentary and juxtaposing skills range from impromptu, street photography, to more formal styles that often seem as if they might have been produced with the aid of an art director. She is just as comfortable out on the street as she is in the studio setting, and it is this combination of skills and shooting styles that has produced some truly inspiring imagery.
