Hi my name is Jaye and I am a photographer from Cockermouth in Cumbria, and I work throughout the region including the beautiful Lake District national park.
My passion for photography has evolved from working as a makeup artist for over 10 years. The more I worked with photographers on photoshoots and weddings, the more curious I became.
I picked up my first DSLR in 2007, when I was based in the South East and London, and started taking photographs as a hobby trying to learn as much as I could so that the images I captured got better and better.
I moved back to my home county, Cumbria, in 2011 where I continued to work in makeup artistry but also started taking my photography more seriously, completing numerous courses and working with and learning from some of the best photographers the region has to offer.
My love of photography is driven by my own creativity and wanting to capture something special between perfect moments. There is a beauty in a photograph being unique, something that can never to be repeated, something to treasure in years to come
The Lake District offers the perfect backdrop for photography. I still work as a makeup artist too and I can combine this with my photography for portrait photography, family photos and location shoots.
When I’m not taking photos, or painting faces, I am a keen runner. So if you don’t bump into me carrying a camera in one hand and a makeup brush in the other, I will probably be quite happily running along the road or up a forest trail in the middle of the Lake District.
