Sally studied drama at Bristol University and then joined the Bristol Old Vic as an actor.  She went on to work at theatres around the UK and in the West End, in addition to TV drama for several years. 

Having always had a 'proper' camera from the age of 18, she documented productions that she appeared in from behind the scenes and, when her photos started to get attention, she decided to make the leap to move behind the camera. After assisting and gaining experience in difference areas of photography, she decided to specialise in performance, 

Her backstage project the 12 Dames of Christmas was featured in The Telegraph and  It's Nice That. She has also documented behind the scenes at  the National Theatre, RSC and English National Ballet. 

She moved into unit stills thanks to friend and film choreographer, Francesca Jaynes who got her on board for her first short as a director, For George. Sally now works as a freelance unit stills photographer covering iconic shows such as Silent Witness for BBC and Broadchurch for ITV.  Her work is featured regularly in the press. She is experienced in daily unit stills as well as specials and key art. 

Sally's experience as an actor was vital in the early days of being on set as it was an environment she was familiar with.  Over time, it has helped her gain the trust of actors and directors and make them feel at ease when she is around. She is able to balance the needs of the publicity department with her connection to those on set, knowing when it's the right moment to capture a shot. 

Sally also runs a studio at her home in East Dulwich, shooting actors portraits and headshots and editorial content.
