de la Mare Photography is run by Rachael de la Mare
I am... a lover of tea, conversation and a good book... very proudly from Guernsey... slightly geeky with films...
Whilst my background is a bit varied - Literature & History degree, work in design and photography, experience in youth and children's work - the central interest is people, stories and memories. I love to hear about, participate in and record moments and memories.
I first started taking photographs with a clown camera I had as a child. Whether there were actual photographs produced or whether said camera was a toy, I'm not entirely sure, however the passion started. I had the privilege of working for Yasmin Mariess, a leading photographer in Guernsey, and on moving to the UK set up de la Mare Photography in 2008.
I love to work creatively with people whether it be photographing portraits, weddings, pets, landscapes - it's an honour to be involved in people's lives. My priority is creating the photographs you want.
