As a photographer, I work with you to clarify how you want to be visually represented in order to effectively tell you story - from profile shots for your social media, documentary photography of your events for marketing and PR, to longer projects for books, blogs, websites etc. I pride myself on my ability to mindfully and sensitively communicate and connect with my clients. My style is natural and unobstrusive, I like to keep things simple and shoot using natural light. I love working with clients who share my vision for a greener, fairer and healthier world.
Prices vary depending on shoot time, location and usage requirements. I have special rates for small businesses and not-for-profit organisations. Please ask!

Celebrate your life: wedding, funeral, family and event photographer
Celebrating life through ritual, events and ceremony is a really important part of being alive. I believe it helps us to live our lives in a more meaningful way. As a photographer I love recording beautiful moments in a natural and unobtrusive way.
Celebrating the lives of people who have died can be an important way of remembering them and telling their story and for the safekeeping of generations to come. A good friend Dave said to his wife Chris, shortly before he died: “I wish I had given myself more time to stop, look, and see". I remember him with fondness and gratitude.
Above is a small sample of wedding and funeral photography I have been commissioned to take. I have many more examples.
Contact me if you would like me to help you celebrate any aspect of your life!
Rising Women Rising World, FemmeQ Summit, Berlin
Rising Women Rising World is a transformational organization and movement that exists to inspire women AND men to pioneer new possibilities, rise to their full capacities, and build a world that works for all. At the first international FemmeQ Summit 140 people united from 15 countries. As a photographer and member of the Media, Arts and Creativity Constellation, I was asked to document this event. I hope to contribute to a world where creativity is communicated in a form that empowers and enables its audience to take positive action.

'The Art of Applewood - from Hospital to Homes', book by photographer Ruth Davey, published by Look Again, with foreword written by Kevin McCloud
As co-author with Lis Parker, photographer and publisher of this book, I am very proud to present Look Again’s first publication, with the foreword written by Kevin McCloud. This book charts the evolution of a much-loved piece of land in Stroud, Gloucestershire: once a derelict hospital, now a vibrant new community. The book tells the story of the Cashes Green Hospital and the stories of local people who used to work there. I capture the demolition and the building of the new Applewood housing development, focusing on how the designers, architects, government, housing association, builders, and other contractors have engaged with the local community and the ecology of the site. The story is not only about bricks and mortar; it is about the ‘spirit of place’, the relationships between people, and a connection with the earth.
