I help my clients tell considered, authentic stories.

As a professional photographer and director of stories, I recognise visual image as a very powerful and expansive tool.
I have a BA hons in documentary photography from The University of Wales, and initially started my career in the visual arts before moving into delivering engaging media assets for global brands within the market research and trends sector.

My passion lies in translating and conveying stories; working closely with clients to understand, define and communicate their unique message whether that's through photography, film, or consultancy and training.

I have award-winning trend agency experience, managing and producing digital, print, photography and film projects for brands such as Diageo, Coca-Cola, The Co-operative Society, Kate Spade NY as well as experience working for small business, start-ups and independents.

Recent work


I have worked with Stacey on a diverse range of multimedia projects over the years, including a number of films and videos, and other projects more focussed on still imagery and graphic design.
Each project has been different but the unique quality that Stacey has always added to the process has been the ability to truly get to the heart of what I need, understand the brief and then provide the creative direction to get a successful end result. Unlike many creatives I have worked with she doesn’t push a creative direction just because she believes its a great creative idea. She tries and succeeds in truly understanding what your objectives are, including the appropriate tone of voice, understanding the pace, energy and emotions you are trying to convey either to, within or about your audience.
I’ve never been disappointed with the end result, and neither have my clients, including many senior execs at the likes of Unilever, and that speaks volumes to Stacey’s vision, ideas and creative direction.

Stacey’s creativity and ideas were pivotal to the successful launch of our company website. Stacey empathised with our branding and advised with great passion on how to up date our brand without striping it from it’s 69 years of heritage. Stacey worked effortless with our creative team and copy writer to capture the real essence of our brand and business. We have established a trust with Storyteller and Stacey’s innovative flare has helped enthuse our clients and suppliers to embrace this celebration and be part of our website through cultured contemporary photography. Moreover, we have established an ongoing business partnership that we hope will evolve now and into the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stacey to any prospective client.

Working with Stacey was an incredible joyride through ideas and their realisation. Many creatives quickly fall into closed working practices or think more about their own place in the creative process, rather than finding ways to indulge yours. I brought some complicated ideas and ideals to Stacey and not only did she help me evolve them into refined artefacts at the conceptual stage, she helped me add dimension, time and place - all of this was before she even considered where her own place in the material realisation would be. Stacey works very hard to understand what you’re trying to achieve and how the end user will receive the message. My rough ideas completely changed over the course of some very productive conversations and then Stacey laid a very clear route to realising the eventual plan. I felt indugled, included and involved and I didn’t ever have to force my way into the development or realisation of a process, Stacey kept me in the front row of everything. Stacey’s photography also has a passion wrapped into it that’s palpable. Every brand has human ideals behind it, but most don’t enjoy it’s proper communication - Stacey will make sure it’s in the DNA of everything she does for you. Stacey helped me tell the story I really wanted to tell using countless subtle semantics. Everything was considered.
Stacey’s amazing. Make sure you involve her from the start - and let her lead you all the way through to the end. You won’t be disappointed, moreover, you’ll consider paying her double the asking price.
