Sarah has kindly offered to work with some of our young people who have expressed an interested in photography. We are thrilled to have Sarah join StreetWork as a photographic partner. As you can see from her biography below Sarah works across a wide range of photographic disciplines.

There is a thread connecting all genres of photography: the chance to tell your story - about your wedding, your family, your business, your art, your planet...about you. Sarah can direct you into compositions that have the style and precision of a Vanity Fair cover, or deftly capture the almost unseen moments, the essence of behaviours, expressions and memories in lifestyle and photojournalistic photgraphy. Each shoot is customised to achieve the images you want.
