ABOUT ME

Hi, I am Xanthe (pronounced Zan-thee) living in London, UK… with Luke and our two teenage boys. I love to fill the frame with bright colours, movement, sunshine and joy – elevating the everyday and bringing a warm smile.

I’m a photographer, film maker, stop motion artist and visual story-teller. A wide variety of projects keeps my photography and film making business buzzing with activity. From my beginnings in lifestyle portrait photography for families and women, to guiding and inspiring others to start making their own films, through my workshops and online film courses. I’ve worked with many leading UK brands, such as Boden, Cath Kidston, The White Company, Twinings, Penguin Books, Warner Music, Etsy UK to name just a few – creating films, stop motions and photos to be shared across their social media channels. Find out more about how I work over here…

The variety of work is something I love, from capturing photos and videos for brand campaigns, to creating a stop motion of handbags & shoes in my home studio, or teaching on a video walk or being invited to speak and teach at many events around the world… or simply playing peek a boo with my camera, while photographing a toddler.

I’m hugely passionate about personal projects, with always a few on the go to push myself creatively and experiment for fun… you’ll find me daily on Instagram or riding my yellow bike in all kinds of weather or drinking tea in a pretty dress.

COMMERICAL WORK

I love creating film & photography content for social media campaigns and working with brands through my blog & Instagram feed – Find out more HERE.

LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

“There’s nothing more magical to me, than being able to frame a moment or a connection in time. Lovers embracing, new parents wonderment at new life, siblings sharing laughter, families together & all the details that makes these bonds so wonderful.”

I’d love to capture your MOMENTS through one of my portrait family sessions… let me tell your stories through photos that can last forever.
