Like many people Chole fell in love with photography when she was given a camera as a child.  Back then she get excited about picking up the prints from her developed rolls of film, and today whatever she is shooting she still love the endless creative possibilities and freedom the camera gives, and the interactions with people that photography enables. 
In 2002 she became a freelance professional photographer having trained at the London College of Printing and now she combine commercial photography in the UK with travel photography, photographic holidays, and commissions for non-governmental organisations abroad.
Most of her work involves photographing people, both portraiture and more documentary style reportage. She love collaborating with and engaging her subjects but she also enjoy the discreet reportage style documentary photography and the small details too.  Whether she is photographing a wedding, a party, children, or travelling with her camera she will bring a relaxed unobtrusive approach to the shoot, and her aim is always to achieve beautiful natural images. 
Outside of photography she also teach yoga and group indoor cycling both for London clubs like Virgin Active and Fitness First, but also for businesses.
