Marie was introduced to the group by Ray Higginbottom whom she met through his evening photography classes. Photography soon became Marie's way to express herself creatively. She has now taken the step to work within the photographic industry assisting other photographers working for national newspapers, fashion magazine shoots, portraiture and commercial work. Marie's own photography work is mainly weddings and events. She enjoys photographing people in their natural environments. LIP has given Marie the platform to pursue more artistic and thoughtful work that she can experiment with and exhibit.
