Sally Mais

I left Bristol University and went straight into the Bristol Old Vic Company as an actor. I went on to perform in everything from Pinter to panto, before deciding to pursue my other passion, photography. After further studies at the LCC and working as as assistant to other established photographers, I set up my own photography business. I have remained in the world of performance; in the theatre, events and more recently on TV and film sets. I have documented performers at the National Theatre, English National Ballet and in various West End productions  I live in East Dulwich, London with my husband, two girls and a high-energy labrador.
